This year, Earth Day feels like a more momentous occasion than usual — perhaps because of the bewildering amount of people who continue to be climate change deniers (led by Donald Trump, who seems to have no comprehension of the polar ice caps melting), who have advocated for fracking ventures that could contaminate groundwater, and who root for big oil instead of advocating for green energy sources.

LORAC-spring-2017-i-love-brunch-collection

Brunch is by far my favorite meal — I can feast on shrimp and cheesy grits, then pair the meal with a mimosa; I can nibble on scrambled eggs and pair them with something as seemingly unharmonious as sweet potato fries, all the while enjoying a sangria; or I can sip a latte while savoring eggs benedict atop delicious crab cakes.
