    11 Things That Are On My Midlife Bucket List

    I’m not going to live forever. You might be reading this and thinking “duh” but those six words are hard to type. Like many people, I don’t like to think about my own mortality. It’s funny how we’re so reluctant to think about death because nobody lives forever…unless you’re a Cullen.

    Yes, the catatonic posture, bewildered expression, and even the tears are all symptoms of a mother who has lost her coffee. READ MORE
