That's me. I'm supposed to be on an adventure, but I cancelled. Sometimes life just gets the best of you and you gotta say, "hold up, pause...I'm taking a break." That's what I did.

They don't call me their #1 stalker for no reason. I prefer to call myself their #1 fan. It's just … Continue reading #12 Eighteen
The birthday is getting closer. The big 3-9. Ahhh...I'm getting so old! Just kidding. I really don't feel old and I'm actually excited. People keep offering suggestions about what I can include in my 40 new adventures and I love it! Keep 'em coming! I can't actually start them yet though because I set a … Continue reading Two weeks out…
