  1. Like everyone else, I was feeling a certain type of way at the beginning of the year. I was reflecting a lot on 2017, thinking about what was great and what was lacking. I had to comes to terms with the reality that my relationships with those around me existed primarily through a screen, instead of …

  2. This may be an unpopular opinion, but I’m going to just come out and say it. Spring is my least favorite season. I don’t like it. I don’t like the cold. Or the wind. But most of all, the brown. Actually, most of all, the cold. Or the wind. I can’t decide. Here’s the thing. I’m …

  3. It’s interesting how the seasons and weather can play an integral role in our moods and overall happiness. Every season is matched with a different set of feelings it seems. Winter is cozy; it invites us to nestle in and hibernate while summer rings nostalgic, calling us to go out and play. I’m so happy to WELCOME …

  4. When the cat’s away, do mice play? When I went on maternity leave, I left enough wiggle room for our editorial team to dream up new concepts and story ideas for Wit & Delight. As the lifestyle category was evolving, we looked for ways to connect with our readers outside the digital space, bringing opportunities to connect …

  5. For the past 10 years, I have moved at least once every year, if not multiple times within a single year. In my 30 years on Earth, I have lived in 28 different homes (if you can even call them that). We moved a lot when I was growing up – from state to state and …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. When is the last time you took a risk? I mean the kind of risk that has the potential to expand you in some important or beautiful way. For me, it was this morning. I started my day with a long walk and a favorite podcast. When the episode ended, my thoughts were swirling and I …

  8. I was too young to understand what Gwen Stefani meant when she named that No Doubt album Return of Saturn, instead consumed with worry about what would happen if I got gum stuck in my braces and perfecting my cursive handwriting in diary entries about boys named Tyler. (Remind me to ceremoniously burn those journals before …

  9. Can we talk about how insane your twenties are? (Lol at me acting like that’s not what I write about every month.) Like no offense but what in the actual f*ck? Y’all just let this happen to us with no warning and we have to adapt to being in quarter-life crisis mode for half a decade? …

  10. Happy International Women’s Day everyone!!! On this very day in 1909, over a century ago, thousands of women came together and marched fervently in New York in the name of equality and women’s rights. This has always been a very important day in history. And because of all the strong women in the world that have …

  11. There’s something about that last leg of winter (aka the whole month of March) that makes you want to bunker down, escape all your day-to-day obligations and just hibernate. That’s kind of how I’ve been feeling lately. A little burnt out and a lot of bits tired. I’m craving some serious vitamin D and a tropical …

  12. Matt Oholendt was my first kiss, my high school best friend and the great love of my life before I even knew what that meant. The fact that we were married at the ripe age of 21 and 23 surprised no one (aside from us) and while the majority of our friends chose to settle down …

    I’ve been relatively quiet here at work. Not knowing if this is our last baby or not (jury is still out on this one), I’ve been doing my best to take it nice and slow and enjoy every single minute with my children. Between the coos and snuggles and laughter, I do every once and awhile …

  14. Editors’ note: This post has been edited after publication. We review every post to ensure this place is a safe and inclusive space for all our readers and regret that we didn’t remove the polarizing language before publication. Thank you to the commenters who used their voice to speak up!  The majority of us want to …

  15. With just a few days left before the New England Patriots and Philidelphia Eagles faceoff for Super Bowl LII, the Twin Cities and surrounding neighborhoods are bumpin’ with people and parties! Determined to show visitors why 5.5 million Americans choose to live in a state with (sometimes) brutal weather conditions, the Minneapolis Super Bowl Host Committee has …

  16. For as volatile and rocky as 2017 was, it will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the year Joe and I welcomed our sweet little baby Birdie into the world. Although she was definitely the most noteworthy accomplishment in a rollercoaster of crazy news stories and incredible acts of togetherness, there …

  17. The last couple years were not for the faint of heart. With that in mind, we gotta do what we can to make 2018 thismuch easier, thismuch more pleasant, thismuch more mellow for ourselves and those around us. So here, apply these simple life hacks to your everyday. They take very little time, not a single …

  18. Dolly Parton. She has that laugh and those sequined getups and that hair foam rollered up to the clouds and those, well, those. But she also has a kind philanthropic spirit, all five feet of her standing up for the disadvantaged, and more talent – whether singing, writing, acting or joke-telling – than most of us. Perhaps …

  19. Heartbreak. We’ve all been there. So how do you deal? Are you the type to listen to The National on repeat for three months? Do you rebound with the next available hottie? Turns out, your zodiac sign can tell a *lot* about how you’re going to react. Read on and let me know what you think! …

  20. Podcasts have quickly become my favorite way to multitask. After all, there’s nothing that makes cleaning out the inbox or commuting to the office go faster than backgrounding it with interesting conversations. If you’re looking to hop on the podcast trend — or supplement your current queue — I’ve compiled a few of the best career-focused …

  21. New year, new you – right? Is that tired yet? Well, it turns out that you probably DO have something to work on based on your astrological sign. Follow along and see what you can improve on this year and let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Aries March 21 – April 19 Aries …

  22. I’m that person. You know, the one who constantly thinks up ways to delight family and friends with clever gifts and meaningful cards but rarely remembers to act on them. One of my best friends, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. She’s perfected the art of showing gratitude. I can always count on a …

  23. If anyone around here needs to get herself to the gym ASAP, it’s me. (It’s been months, people. RED ALERT.) To be honest, I’m actually planning to head back in January, but I feel like I want to be clear: It won’t be because of any New Year’s resolutions. I’ve just never been a New Year’s …

  24. I’ll admit that it seems like a strange place to accidentally end up, but I never really intended to live in New York City. I know other people—lots of people, in fact—need to live there. To check it off a bucket list. To see if they can make it. To really earn their status as starving …

  25. Can you believe the ’90s were two decades ago? It feels like just yesterday that I was buying True Colors eyeshadow at the mall and listening to Aaliyah CDs on the bus (RIP). The older I get, the more respect I have for the ’90s. Indie rock, grunge and hip-hop ruled the radio, TV was relatively …

  26. I’ve never really had what one philosophically optimistic throw pillow might describe as “an attitude of gratitude.” One of my earliest Christmas memories centers on the chaos that ensued after I asked my parents if the gift I had just opened could be exchanged for a pair of My Little Pony dress-up heels with sequins embedded …

  27. Amanda Jane Jones, be still our design-devoted hearts. You likely know Amanda from her work with Kinfolk, where as the founding art director, her minimalist and sharp approach to layout changed the game of modern magazines. Or perhaps you recognize her kind smile and cute kids from Instagram, where she’s gained a sizeable flock of followers. …

    A year has transpired since we set up shop in Studio 125, and I’m still not totally used to working with other people. Not necessarily working with, but in proximity to others. While I spent 6 years in an open office setting, I worked solo for a very long time. As a contractor, I would be …

  29. When you’re missing someone you love, you rarely feel the loss quite as sharply as during the holidays. I haven’t had a close family member die, but I’ve had to grieve the end of several treasured relationships. And I’ve walked beside people I love through their own grief. I know the holidays can be brutal. If …

  30. “Syntax and sensibility: Nobody wed them quite like Joan Didion,” says New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, in a profession of love to Joan and her unusually placed prepositional phrases. Nobody does anything quite like Joan Didion. The way she almost unsentimentally audits death and memory. The way she waves a bony index finger, more knowing …

  31. I can’t believe we’re looking towards the last few days of 2017. I’m wrestling with conflicting feelings about the year coming to a close. For one, I’m having this baby girl no later than January 2nd (my scheduled c-section date) and have a huge laundry list of things to accomplish before she gets here. To top …

  32. The world of photography today ranges from Facetuning a donut brunch to developing vintage toy camera shots in a darkroom. Whatever you hope to achieve, entering this world can be intimidating. Why not turn to the pros when it comes to getting your pictures to the next level? I hit up three of my favorite photographers …

  33. Want to know what makes a warm plate of roasted turkey even more satisfying? You know, besides your grandmother’s infamous mac-and-cheese and aunt’s sweet-potato casserole. Heaping sides of gratitude, that’s what! Not only is practicing gratitude a humbling habit for stimulating personal happiness, but it also has a powerful positive effect on others. And if there’s …

  34. Bridging the gap between the digital expression of W&D and the physical manifestation of what we’ve built is the ultimate dream for me. And sometimes when you want to tackle a goal that lofty, the pressure to make something AMAZING right out of the gate can be debilitating. Throw your own personal style into the mix …

  35. The pure privilege of not waking up all-the-way politically until 2016 is not lost on me. Until about nine or ten months before last year’s election, I had the common political media habits of a young white person living in the city: I’d pay attention to the news leisurely; keep my finger loosely on the pulse …

  36. Rise and shine? More like rise and whine, amiright? If you’re not of the early bird species, I’m not here to convince you to become a morning person. There are things like circadian rhythms to consider with that! I am, however, here to convince you that there are ways we can all make the a.m. a …

  37. Fall is, in my opinion, the most wonderful time of year, especially here in the Upper Midwest. The leaves are changing, your coffee tastes like a pumpkin, and people are wearing stylish plaid capes – what could be better? The only downside is that fall goes by quick quick quick – it can be tough to …

  38. Do you ever feel as if you aren’t anything like your sign? Maybe you’re a docile Aries or a lighthearted Scorpio – either way, something about you just doesn’t seem to add up to your signs’ classic traits? You see, it’s not just your Sun sign (more on that in a bit) that matters in astrology – …

  39. That Christmas song got it all wrong: the most wonderful time of year is fall. Everyone knows that. But beyond hitting the pumpkin patches and apple orchards, wrapping yourself in blanket-like sweaters and eating your fair share of root vegetables, what else should you do during the fleeting fall? Here, some slightly-less-cliché autumn-time ideas for you. …

  40. WOOOOOOOOOOOO, BAAA-BY. So, I put off any and all writing of this article until I was all the way finished with Sweet Valley High: Double Love (dun dun dunnnnn) and, oh my God ya’ll, that place is twenty-seven flavors of messed up. I haven’t read this book since I was twelve, which, thank GOD I read …

  41. When it comes to seasons, fall is always one for the books. (Teehee — pun intended.) Curling up in that beloved oversized sweater with a mug full of warm, spicy (or spiked, no judgment!) cider in one hand and a page-turner in the other while both the temps and leaves are dropping outside… I mean, does it …

  42. BROUGHT TO YOU BY 23andme

    For most of my life, I was under the impression I was German and Norwegian. My mom lived in Germany for a year and my dad had visited in his early 20s to understand more about his German heritage. While I don’t remember meeting my great-grandparents, I knew their names, their stories, and their personalities. My …

  43. Look at her over there, sitting at the bar alone, reading the Sunday Times, sipping her second glass of Sancerre. What a woman. “Can I be her?!” you’re thinking. You can and you will, if I have anything to do with it. Whether you’re coupled up or not, a part of a close-knit pack of friends …

  44. Lana Del Rey’s “Lust For Life” has been out for a hot minute, but sometimes I like to just sit and hold songs for awhile before I can decide which ones I’m taking with me with me for the long haul. Kind of like how I wander around Madewell for 45 minutes carrying ten different sweaters …

    I need to start off this post by explaining just how hard it was to not write in Winnie’s “voice.” You know that voice, the one people use when providing their dog’s inner monologue or when you carry on a conversation with your dog throughout the day. Or maybe you don’t. If you couldn’t tell, I’m …

  46. If Houston isn’t the epitome of a gut-wrenching nightmare right now, I don’t know what is. Something I do know? Being able to evacuate a city, not to mention the 4th largest city in the U.S. (it’s the size of New Jersey), is a privilege, not to mention a logistical nightmare. You have to have money, …

    Learning a new language is daunting. I took 4 years of French in high school and haven’t retained much except how to say, “I like ham and cheese,” — a true statement if I ever heard one. After so many hours dedicated to studying language, why do you think the traditional method failed me? I did …

  48. Whether you’re walking your dog, traveling, or just trying to please your Fitbit, summer is the ultimate season to stretch your legs. To make sure you have plenty of listening material, I’ve compiled a few choice podcasts for you to add to your lineup. Don’t forget sunscreen! Bon Appétit Foodcast Chefs are incredibly fascinating people, as …

    I’ve interviewed a fair share of people throughout my career, and what I’ve come to learn is sometimes the story you thought you were telling evolves into something else entirely. This interview is one of those cases. I recently sat down with Erin Duininck of the GOLDEN RULE, the owner of a gorgeously curated makers boutique …

  50. Hey there! My name is Amanda and for as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with astrology and the signs of the Zodiac. I have a particular interest in the personality and nuances of each sign, and can most often be found at a party looking up everyone’s natal chart. For my first …

  51. Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18th, which means your window to grab a thoughtful, dad-friendly gift is closing quickly. No worries, my friend. We’ve got you covered with ideas for all kinds of dads. These gifts all pair perfectly with a hug and a peck on the cheek, just as your dad has requested. For the …

  52. Summer is here! That means you have alllll kinds of time to sit in the sun and soak in a few good books. I’ve hand-picked five that are not just excellent reads—they’re also full of summer *~vibes*~ that will get you in the perfect headspace for the season. These books are all compelling, witty and deeper than …

  53. It’s been a while since we’ve done a weekly edit. I’ve been running full speed ahead on some really fun product development initiatives and finally feeling like all the work is paying off. Though I was neck deep in design work, it requires more time searching the web for inspiration– something I’ve really missed while doing …

  54. Going home with a significant other for the holidays can be a real mental game, especially for the first time. Will his parents like you? Will her sisters judge your every move, outfit, accidental snort? All. Eyes. On. You. Though stressful, it usually comes with a certain amount of anticipated familiarity and expectation. You can safely …

  55. If you know me personally or follow me on social media, you know I love my dog. When James and I finally got settled in our new house (about 2 years ago) and had workplaces that allowed dogs, I popped the question, “Can we get a dog now?” He wasn’t on board at first. He didn’t …

  56. “I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, …

  57. I’d like to clarify something before we dive in. This is not your standard, “5 Things Successful People Do in the Morning,” Forbes article. I say this right away for two reasons: I’m a sucker for those articles. Who wouldn’t find Beyonce’s workout routine inspiring? Why wouldn’t I want to know what Sheryl Sandberg eats for …

  58. Spring is a time of rebirth, and also a time to convince yourself that you can do things you failed at last year, like keeping a bonsai tree alive or finding out what sous vide means. To amp you up to take control of your destiny—and own who you are right now—we picked out special rom-com …

  59. If there is one group of people on this planet I could not identify less with it’s people who just naturally *love* to clean. Couldn’t be me. Here’s an example of what I look like cleaning:  *Picks one thing up off the floor* Welp! That’s probably enough of that! I have to make it an event; a commitment. It …

  60. My new year’s resolutions often start at odd times, and not once but twice a year. Maybe these markers of renewal are tied to fashion; maybe they’re influenced by deep seeded ties to the beginning and end of the academic calendars. It happens intuitively and without much foresight. Like a bear knows it’s time to hibernate, …

  61. March was nothing short of crazy. I’ve been burning it at both ends for about six weeks, working on four product lines and jumping into consulting again with a large last-minute project that required 9 days of shooting and lots and lots of planning. I hate seeing time fly by me without stopping to enjoy the little …

  62. Strong female leads teach us so much, like that it’s ok to have haters, drink wine before 5 p.m. and expose midriff after age 17. Most importantly, they teach us to laugh in the face of danger/the patriarchy. We collected their best mantras for success to inspire you to be the protagonist of your own life. …

  63. As the saying goes: in like a lion, out like Beyoncé. Whether you like her or not, you most definitely are on a first name basis with Beyoncé. There’s no denying her icon status. So, no “Women Who #Werk” March series would be complete without drawing inspiration from a woman whose hard work has captivated the …

  64. Let’s face it—as modern ladies, there are a million and one things keeping us from getting the sleep we need at night. Whether it’s something small, like the sudden pressure to KonMari your house, or something pressing, like needing to wake up early to protest, sleep eludes many of us. But we don’t just need restful …

  65. Like any true adult, I cry constantly. It’s very casual and part of my regular schedule; don’t be weird about it. Like most women, I’m naturally intuitive. It’s a skill we picked up on to like, I don’t know, survive? But like few special souls (I absolutely DOUSED that in sarcasm), I’m referred to as an “empath.” I hate that …

  66. “I don’t want to give the world a guy that can’t iron his own shirt,” she said.   “I won’t give your future wife a husband who won’t do the dishes,” she said. My mom took extreme pride in raising my sister and me to be independent. We grew up unaware of traditional gender roles that …

  67. In lieu of International Women’s Day, Women’s History Month and our W&D March theme: Women Who #Werk – we are tooting our horns to honor and celebrate women everywhere. There’s so much to celebrate about womanhood, but this year I’m particularly thankful for the women who have helped reinspire and reinvigorate my love for Wit & Delight: …

  68. When I first brought our group of contributors together to pitch this new content idea for W&D, my hope was we would create a broader set of experiences for readers to enjoy. I thought about how we could take the best of our current content and continue to evolve what’s working. The framework looked like this: …

  69. March madness, indeed! Buckle up, buttercups, March is going to be a wildly reflective ride. Most notably, Venus, planet of art, beauty and love, will be retrograde from March 4th through April 15th. Retrogrades get a bad rap, but don’t fret. Unlike Mercury, which trips, stumbles and falls backward several times a year, lending itself to delayed flights …

  70. “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.” …

  71. We recently caught up with Emily Katz after she held a modern macrame course at our studio. I’ve been a massive fan of her bohemian styles for years and it was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon making things with her. As she told the lovely group of women taking the workshop about her life …

  72.   Why, oh why do we watch The Bachelor franchise week after week? Is it so we can have something to talk to our moms about other than politics? Perhaps. Is it so we can live vicariously through skinny people whose dating life is wilder than swiping left or right on their grubby phone screen? Definitely. …

  73. Here is what we are loving this week Vitamins for the modern, aesthetically indulgent woman: Care/of We are loving this brand. So convenient, beautiful and definitely worth the price. If your new year’s resolution motivation has taken a tailspin, you can grab a hold of it here with this Volt Planner. To ward off the recent freeze …

  74. Winter’s coming. This line means something entirely different for Game of Thrones fans, but for those of us in the northern part of the country, it has always meant a welcome shift in the pace of life. Frankly, I’ve been waiting all winter for the cold and the snow, but all we’ve really had here is …

  75. Joe and I have bad timing. For the four Valentine’s Days we’ve had as a couple, only one of them has been spent together. This year he is on the other side of the globe for work, and I foiled his plans to surprise me with flowers because I’ve become the family’s budget Nazi stickler and inquired …

  76. Now that Bonnie Tyler’s classic slow jam is lodged in your head – not sorry! – it’s time to discover what the stars have in store for us this month. Namely, eclipses. Somehow, in the shortest of all the months, the universe has packed two of 2017’s four eclipses into February. What the what does that mean? …

  77. It’s finally here. The most dramatic blog post in Wit & Delight’s history. Each one of you is here for the right reasons, so I just wanted to steal you for a sec to tell you I can totally see myself falling in love. To show you how much I’ve enjoyed our time together, my friends Kate …

  78. Readers, meet Becky Lang. I’ve followed her on Twitter for years and we were able to work together briefly last year while she was working with local agency, Zeus Jones. Admittedly I was a little nervous to meet one of my favorite Twitter follows; Becky (@leckybang) is bright, funny, and objectively cool with an unabashed interest …

  79. Hey you, what’s your sign? Cliché pick-up line, be damned. Let’s get a little better acquainted with our astrological signs as we start something new here on Wit & Delight. That’s right: horoscopes! So far, 2017 has been – insert heavy sigh – trying. We could all use a little guidance from the stars these days. …

  80. For most of my life, I chased an elusive idea of love. The kind that arrives serendipitously and presents itself with grand gestures. I waited for my modernized white knight to arrive and save me. Save me from what? you may ask. I thought a great love would make everything in life make sense. It would …

  81. Better late than never, here is our January Reading Edit. This month wore us down for many reasons, and media fatigue was one of the biggest culprits. With so much to read about all the changes happening around the world, we found ourselves looking at our sources of our media in a new light. When I …

  82. I’m excited for you all to get to know my friend Kate Jones today. Kate and I met a couple years ago when she was passing through Minneapolis. We got brunch and got to talking and I learned that her jewelry line, Ursa Major, was just a tiny peek into her artistic depth. I hope you get the …

  83. We’re almost done with January – but for those of us in the North, winter is just getting started. I’m excited to usher in a new month with a new theme next week. I’ll keep this short so we can get right to it: First – we’re getting the Wit & Delight newsletter up & running!  We’re …

  84. America is made up of its cities and the space between them. To inhabitants, these communities are an expression of cultures, values, dialect, and climate. When we visit other parts of the country, we arrive with a prepackaged set of stereotypes further perpetuated by pop culture references and collective experiences. New York is “Center of the Universe.” …

  85. “One of my goals in 2017 is to be brave.” This is what Bridgette Dutkowski told me when I asked if she’d be willing to write about her experience at the Women’s March on Washington. While you may or may not recognize her name from our Monthly Reading Edits, Bridgette lends her vast talents when mine fall …

  86. This world we live in feels a little different today. I woke up in a terrible mood and didn’t want to get out of bed. Twitter brought on a mini rage stroke, so I deleted the app and decided to take some time to pull myself together. Knowing that doing something makes me feel better than doing …

  87. My favorite pieces of décor in my home all have one thing in common – I had some part in their creation. Whether it’s choosing the perfect family photo to hang in our dining room or piecing together a floral arrangement, there is something to be said about showcasing a work of art that you had a …

  88. Over plates of spaghetti, a girlfriend recently said, “If you are having a negative reaction to someone’s Instagram photo, it says more about you than it does them.” We were discussing the latest Instagram post from someone we both found both fascinating and controversial. Instagram has been a common topic of conversation with my close girlfriends these days. My friend has …

Blog posts from myself and contributors will be inspired by these themes and explored through words, visuals, pun, and articles.

  90. Guys, we made it! 2017 is here and even though technically nothing really has changed in the past four days, the new year marks a time for reflection and renewal for just about all of us. For the past five years, I’ve used the time between Christmas and New Year’s to reflect on what we accomplished in …

  91. I know few people who are sad to see 2016 go. Joe and I joke that the only good thing that happened this year, was the birth of our son. Times of trial and division have happened in our history countless times before, but never have we personally had such proximity to the events themselves. Sometimes it …

  92. You may know her best as Princess Leia, but Carrie Fisher was a heroine in real life, too. RIP Carrie. Thank you for all you’ve done. Read more about how Carrie used her platform to help fight mental health stigma at TIME.com.  She was also a prolific writer; NYMag has a round up of her most memorable quotes …

  93. Ready or not, Christmas came and went and now we’re looking towards the new year. That time of year to celebrate with friends and family and to remember the important things in life. It’s been an unbelievable year, and I’m looking forward to a little R&R. The Wit & Delight team will be taking some time …

  94. Your squad, your crew, your gang. The ones that have (and will) outlast just about every other relationship in your life. I’m talking about person that knows every secret, where all the bodies are buried and will destroy damning evidence upon your death. Yes, your best friend. These gifts are for the special someone that has been and will …

    It’s pretty mind-blowing that we’ve been in the studio space for about three months now. While we ran into some snafus during our build-out, this place is already starting to feel like home. Maybe it’s the fact that I spend so much time here (sometimes in my sweats and slippers) or because the tornado of stuff has …

  96. Mark your calendars! Modern by Dwell Magazine hits Target shelves and Target.com December 27th. The line includes a wide array of indoor and outdoor seating, textiles, dining and serving wares, planters, and decor in price points ranging from $20 – $300. Very exciting! Images courtesy of Target Corp. See the entire collection here.

  97. This morning my hair froze while walking to the car. The car that is 20 feet from my back door, mind you. Winter is officially here, and it’s time to remind the northern half of the country that we have a choice when it comes to the winter months: embrace it, or make your exit plan! …

  98. What do you get for the couple who always gifts the most perfectly thoughtful presents? It’s a tough order. My sister(s)-in-law are the masters of surprise and delight when it comes to gifting occasions. They always find ways to blend personal anecdotes with practicality. I put together a couple items that are both safe and thoughtful for those …

      I grew up the oldest of three children. For the first few years of my life I was the sun that my parents rotated around. I had their undivided attention and adoration. Admittedly, I don’t remember any of this, but I used to imagine what life would be like sans a little brother and sister. …
