My first crush

February 20, 2002

kenny is the first crush in my memory. i chased him around the blacktop because i wanted to give him a kiss — on the cheek, mind you. (simple minds, simple pleasures.) i wish i could be as brazen as i was back then. i don’t chase boys, anymore. i just stare at them from the other side of the room, hoping my stares will send signals straight to their hearts.

    playground love. what a beautiful thing.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
