Horse girls!!!! In love!!!! Why is this not a romance novel?

Gaby as Poison Ivy? Approved. No notes.

Motion to add this to the dictionary under: CHARMING

Imagine being able to properly hit some choreo? Whew, it could not be me!

I am an East Coast babe myself, so seeing the desert never fails to astound me. Things like that just GROW in nature? What on earth!!

This outfit puzzles me and sparks joy, all at the same time?

Well this seems like a perfect way to spend some time, doesn’t it?

Ashley is doing a serious post break up slide into ~*arty~* content, deeply relatable.

I am sure you can hear me keening because I miss the beach so much right now.

Happy Belated Stacy!

  1. I’ve been idly wondering why Bella Thorne keeps showing up in No Filter. So today I googled her, saw that she’s 22, and realized that she’s not Thora Birch from Now and Then 😂. I felt a little old but a lot less confused.

  2. I’m originally a southwestern gay myself and my mom to this day calls the flowers on top of saguaro cacti “party hats”. IE, she will send me a text with a photo captioned “they cactus are starting to get their party hats!”

    Wanted to share this wholesomeness with you all.
