Ok, so my motto is a little backward right now.  Its temporary…. but very fun!  Things for me have been flipped upside down as of late, so I have been taking some time to remember what is important to me.  Family.  Graduating.  Traveling.  Optimism.  Having a fun, fulfilling, happy life!

With these things in mind, I have had a few recent adventures.  Most recently, I visited Mallory in Fredericksburg, VA for her 21st birthday.  I know.  21?!?!?!  How did this happen?  Can’t she stay at….say, 11?  The great part is, though, that she is growing into a responsible, fun, interesting, and beautiful young woman!  Its true, Mal.  We had a blast on our bday celebration/sister fest weekend!  Her college, University of Mary Washington, and the whole area for that matter is gorgeous!  Mom and Bai made it down for a quick visit.  And the birthday celebrations took us to D.C. for the evening.  Check it out!

This is Mallory holding people in the air in a fancy way.

    If Mallory was 11 you’d be kicking her out of your bedroom and telling her to get her own friends and leave you and your friends alone!! And then I would try to be the nice one and invite her to play with us, and you would give me the look of death. just say’n.
