    This is fantastic! Can’t wait to meet you!

    I too have been to Alaska and lived there for 4 years, which is the whole reason we had to separate. I’ve also seen the Northern Lights a few times and even played on a softball team named as such. There were a few other things that are just like me, lol like owning quite a few pink things ( my camera being a big one), and I name my cars. I also love grocery shopping, Hooters food, and wish life was a musical…..Love the blog

    So I just read this! I have to say that I LOLed alot! I remember so much of this from school. The picture taking, the lip stuff stash (EVERYWHERE), the music. But there was a lot I learned. I miss your craziness! You were the first one to give me a shot of Black! That stuff burned and I lied to you and told you it didn’t:)
