    There are many reasons I’m a fan (your love for Jesus, your positive outlook, and your knack for storytelling being a few), but your use of the Oxford comma is on the list. *See what I did there?* Happy Quarter of a Century!

    #11 – your teacher is AWESOME! I would love to get rid of my couch. Couches make it too tempting to sit, and we do way too much of it.

    1. Abbey

      February 7, 2017 at 4:08 pm

      It was pretty cool, Carrie! You’re so right! πŸ™‚

    It’s so fun reading little tidbits about you. 11 kids would be seriously impressive!
    I’m hoping for 3.
    Oh and happy birthday <3 May it be a wonderful year for you.

    Let’s see one thing I have in common is the nut allergy- I discovered I was allergic to walnuts in college. Very odd too!

    1. Abbey

    I can’t believe you’ve never seen Beauty and the Beast!! Also, it’s cool that you’ve never had a mani or pedi, but you’re missing out. And you go girl on the marathons! Loved this.

    1. Abbey

      February 9, 2017 at 10:27 am
