Danielle, What a honest, powerful, poetic love letter to love songs and tribute to your first love. I absolutely love this personal essay!
I don't know all of these songs, but remember many of them. I think we are the same age-ish. I graduated high school in 1996.
Thank you for the shout out. I'm so glad you decided to write this. I'll be listening through the songs today. :)
Now, off to read Papa CJ's mix tape article! :D
