    Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    Oh this is just glorious! I don’t think there’s a fruit more beautiful than blood oranges – especially when they’re spiked with tequila ;) Loving this for Cinco!
