This week is cram week.

Not cram for finals but cram for life. Getting a bunch of work in, running a million errands, packing, and getting my utilities ready. 7 days of stress. Then, a new apartment.

I am so.super.pumped about this new apartment. Despite some craft failures, I have high hopes that it will be Pinterest-inspired and totally adorable.

I know it’s cram week and there’s a million things to do (I’m sure you’re busy, too – whether it’s getting ready to start or go back to college, or starting to think about getting the kids ready for school, or just cramming in the last bit of summer), but we all need a light but hearty meal.
