Greetings from across the pond, friends! (Well, currently I'm across the pond, but I originally wrote this from my basement. Wasn't sure how much internet access I would have...) Yesterday we went to Platform 9 3/4 and saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!!!! OhmyGodohmyGodohmyGodohmyGod! I was like a little kid on Christmas. To say it was … Continue reading Wake Up Call #28

Honestly guys, I’m having some trouble with words this week. They just don’t seem to want to leave my brain. -_- As a result, I decided to reblog this post about my sister that I wrote when I first started The Married Cat Lady.

Now, before I continue being sappy, I would like to remind anyone reading this, especially if you know my sister and me today, that we have not always been best friends. Only about 9 years ago did we really start liking each other.

When you're little and you need to get somewhere fast, what do you do? You ride your bike, right? I was no different. I learned to ride a bike at the appropriate age (ahem, Rachel), I had no trouble getting the hang of it, and so I loved riding my bike, just like every other … Continue reading Risky Riding

Disclaimer: This isn't exactly my usual upbeat, witty writing style. If you'd like more of that explore other posts. However, I think it's important for me to share. Growing up, all I ever wanted to be was a teacher. I mean, there were brief bits of time when I wanted to be a photographer or … Continue reading For Me.

I mentioned on Monday that I was in Madison, Wisconsin over the weekend with some of my favorite humans. Those humans were my girlfriends, and we were on our annual girls' trip. Rachel, Katy, and I drove up together Friday afternoon. We chatted, ate some snacks, and I spilled water all over myself when Katy … Continue reading We don’t need more friends!*
