• Two Little Capes

    Those that have known me for a while, know the twist-filled turns my life took from 2006-2007. I was a senior in high school and had decided that I wanted to attend Azusa Pacific University in the fall of 2007. I also wanted to play football, and study music.

Obviously she asked me what kind of muffins I wanted her to make, obviously, I requested chocolate chip. Allison said no. Specifically, she said, “you can’t just have everything be chocolate”.
