Amy Grant's mother told her, "Never underestimate the power of keeping some things a mystery."

I think she was right.

I wanted to put Mrs. Wilder's words into something a little more cool

So I did.

Fatherly Advice

I made the mistake of asking my father, "What should I write about?"
His answer:
"After finishing my first semester of senior year, I reflect upon the many things I've learned...
...but mostly I think about my father and his wonderfully helpful advice."

Thanks, Dad.
Unfortunately, he's right.
I am a reflection kind of gal.
More importantly, my father does give pretty good advice most of the time.

"Manners are important to everyone but me when I come home."

"Go out and play with your dog."

"Do your work."

I really love my dad.

Mama Lion


Talk about protective.

I'm sure you've seen various examples of mother animals in action.

The slow-mo of the mama attacking whatever stands between her and her precious babies.

I feel that way about many things.

I scare myself sometimes.

Like Pinterest.

Suddenly everyone at school is buzzing about it.

Mind says:

"That's my hour-sucking website! Back off! Stay on Facebook! Let me have my marvel-at-the-awesomeness moment alone!"

Or like the play.

Mind says:

"What?!?! Other people like acting too?! Impossible! I know you'll just mess it up. Let me have my good-memories-fun-times cast back!"

Or even like music.


Something that was made to be shared.

Mind says:

"I'm gonna tell you about this group I like and this song that's stuck in my head all the time. But don't you dare even think about becoming a fanatical-fan-rave-about-them person like me!"

Empty threats aside...

...let me share with you!

  • Pinterest: Love. True, deep love. I've tried a hairstyle I've fallen in love with. It's easy, fast, and cool-looking...all three of those things are hard to come by with my hair.
  • Play: We move from last year's Faith County to this year's The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon: surely the dumbest theatrical performance of all time and space. But it makes people laugh (including me - almost as hard to come by as the hairstyle) so what the heck?
  • Music: Adele. Need I say more? Yes, I do need. I wish she would stop smoking. There, I said it.

Don't worry.

I promise I won't hurt you too bad if you get between me and my babies.
