Hello living, breathing clusters of intention and hope! I bought myself some snapdragons last night and let me tell you, it was the best idea I’ve had in a while. If you’re in a position to nab yourself some snapdragons today, I suggest you take advantage of that opportunity and just cover yourself in snapdragons. No one could be mean to you if you were covered in snapdragons! Think about it. They couldn’t even see you.
