Thursday Thirteen: Thirteen Things I Am not Proud Of

I’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately to help me get inspired to write more frequently. One of the games bloggers like to play is something called the “Thursday Thirteen” where a blogger will list thirteen things related to a topic.

Shortly after I wrote that goal, I completely quit writing this blog. I’ve even wondered whether or not I should shut this blog down, but my husband convinced me to keep it out there in the blog world in case I change my mind. He knows me too well! read more
