Just grab my hand and let’s run away, we won’t tell anyone where we’re going or even why we felt the need to leave.
We’ll drive untill you get too tired and then will sleep and wake up and drive some more distancing us from our old lives.
I don’t want to look back or think about anything but us, no more distance saying we can’t be together no more long nights wishing with everything inside that we were together.
Nothing but you and me.
So let’s just go ok?
Well figure it out on the way and everything will be ok.
We won’t talk about what everyone will say and think, well be selfishly wrapped up in ourselves and nothing else will matter.
We don’t need a bunch of money or even people, just each other to hold onto.
I’ll fall asleep and dream it actually happens and then disappointment will hit me as soon as my eyes open.
Here’s to another day without you, another night alone.


so gonna use these



Vanilla Almond Milk by Michelle Tam http://nomnompaleo.com

A while back, one of our old college pals posed an interesting question: What would the ’90s version of me think of my modern-day cave-person incarnation? Without hesitation, I blurted out, “She would’ve hated the current me.”

It’s the truth. Despite having spent my college years among the tie-dyed masses at Berkeley, ’90s-Me would ridicule my new hobbies: home-brewing kombucha, collecting bones in the freezer for broth, and soaking almonds overnight to make dairy-free milk. To top it off, the eye-rolling, Doc Martens-wearing ’90s-Me would mock any near-40-year old who still sports pigtails. Seriously: when did I become this person?

Thankfully, the 2014 version of me fully embraces my midlife crisis transformation. She would tell ’90s-Me to go barefoot, stop eating gut-irritating foods, turn off the TV, and make some almond milk already.

Have you ever made your own almond milk? A frosty glass of this homemade stuff totally hits the spot—particularly for those of us who are dairy-abstainers or lactose-intolerant. It’s so lumpin’ delicious that I don’t care if activating my almonds makes me an easy target. Call me an aging hippie—I don’t care.

Making your own almond milk is super simple, too. As long as you remember to soak your almonds for 12 to 18 hours, you can blitz a batch of homemade almond milk in about 5 minutes. Plus, squeezing nut bags relieves a lot of stress. (Heh, heh.)

There are tons of recipes for homemade almond milk on the Interwebs, like this one, this one, this one, and this one. I know I’m not reinventing the wheel with this recipe, but I wanted to share my own method for whipping up a satisfyingly creamy, nutty, vanilla-y bottle of almond milk. I don’t add any sweeteners to it (mostly ’cause this old lady doesn’t need to swig cloyingly sweet drinks like I did in the ’90s). Confession: Once upon a time, I chose to drink Zima at college parties. Don’t hate.

Let’s make some almond milk together!
