I've been a bad blogger.
I was talking about blogging today with my bff and fellow blogger Lara Jean from the new world
and we agreed that there comes a point in your life where you would rather go out and live it than sit at home and write about it.
I think I've reached that point.
But I also want to be able to share the life I'm living with all the people I care about, and since I am currently on the opposite side of the continent than most of you lovely people, blogging is the best way to share my stories.
So as of today,
I'm going to try to blog at least a little bit every day
so I can share my crazy Virginia adventures with you all.
And also because I know that if I don't write them down somewhere, I will eventually forget them and then no one will be able to use them if they decide to make a hallmark movie of my life. And that would just be too darn tragic.
To start off this hopefully fruitful blogging venture,
here are of few of the exciting encounters I've had during my first month in Virginia:
A stoned man told me I should change my name to zebra
I met a dog that was half German Shepherd, half Beagle
A little boy offered to share his otter pop with me
I started accidentally saying y'all
A drunk guy told me I could be the next Meryl Streep
I spent all day walking in a tropical storm
I got caught in a different storm that had a tornado warning
A little old lady with dementia let me inside her daughter's house, and her daughter was not very happy about it
I caught my first firefly
I had a pet baby salamander for a day
I put my feet in the Potomac river
I went to the DC temple
and I got a ridiculous tan line on my feet
So far this summer has definitely had it's ups, and definitely had it's downs. But one thing is for sure,
it's been an adventure.
I look forward to sharing the rest of it with you.
