Friday Social: Decorate Eggs for Persian New Year (Nowruz)

  Wanna hear something funny?  Bobby thinks we’re already married. Back in January, while working on elopement details, I was putting together ideas for the sweetheart table.  I was designing a marker that said “Priya + Bobby, EST. 2017” when Bobby protested.  He insists that it say 2016 instead.

That’s where I’ve been since the inauguration.  It’s felt like a hurricane of constitutional violations, nepotism and two-faced lies since then.  Countless times, I’ve tried to sit in front of my computer and translate that mess inside my head into something coherent and powerful.  Every time, I […] Read more…
