Sunburst Juice

Ok, this is my favorite juice of all time. It’s so easy and tasty and beautiful to look at. What are its exact health benefits and nutrition information? I don’t know–but who cares, right? It’s delicious and it’s probably less harmful than cigarettes, so I dig it.

This weekend has been an introvert’s dream. I’ve barely seen, spoken to or heard from anyone besides my cat. (Yes, that’s a good thing). In the last 72-48 hours, I:
