Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween, Readers!!!! Halloween is my absolute favourite holiday. I don’t have any parties or plans lined up this year other than dressing up at work and making special treats for friends and coworkers, but I’m still full of that end-of-October joy!

OMG! I had another birthday!

Well, another year and another freakish accident to survive, and I have made it to my 25th birthday! Five and twenty, five squared, a quarter of a century…That is quite a number, and I’m very pleased to have made it this far. It kinda sucked that my birthday fell on a Monday and I had […]
