Abuela's Pantry #30: Crush Lite

Aww yes the bliss of having an innocent crush in which you've already imagined your whole life together, the name of your future pets, and the songs you will listen together. Who cares if you've only hung out twice? Who cares if they are not even into you? It's a Crush Lite, it's an innocent feeling that is just there to remind you that "hey, sometimes there is more to life than being sad and all alone."

This is dedicated to all the Crush Lites.
