Happy New Moon and Solar Eclipse Day! No wonder the energy this week was slowing being drained from me. Naps upon naps, coffee after coffee, restless sleeping. How did I make it?

This month has been a seesaw of energetic cycles, hyperfixations, new ideas, and gay pirates. Truly some multiple timelines smooshed into one month vibes. Which makes my mildly anxious about May?

But let’s get on with this wrap up post!

Gay pirates.

How tired I am lately.

Flavored coffee, especially Vanilla Crème Brulee.

Being a romantic.

Spooky spring, dark florals, and lip balm.
