Keep On Truckin’

Just when I think I can’t go on…

I pop some bubbly and regain my strength.

The strength I need to keep on going; the strength I need to cling to, even when it seems like all is lost.

You are NOT alone. I turned the big 25 just last month and my quarter life crisis is still lingering. EEek!!! We can get through it together (with the help of bubbly).

Hi there, just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy reading your blog and just love the photos you have taken, especially the wine tour. PS I went to IKEA and it was a nightmare, but I got my cupboards and they are installed now. Hope you had a better time.

^meant to say “you’re” young. you being a writer can appreciate my correction right? also, just as a side note, i’m just now reading “PREP,” ~ I absolutely love Curtis’s writing style, such a good read!! Her style kind of reminds me of yours actually. i’m moving onto “American Wife” soon.

My big problem was turning 20 because I loved being 19 so much but by the time I turned 23 I got over that. I thought turning 25 would be a piece of cake in comparison until I remembered the rules of rounding up!!!! Eek!! 30!!!
