EASTER OF ANOTHER KIND

TUB (1 of 1).jpg

No bunnies, no hard boiled eggs, no floral dresses here! 

Just me and my puppy and a blog post.

What is this, like a #fridayintroductions on steroids or something? I found this deep in the depths of my blog archives and instead of sending it off to wherever R.I.P drafts go, I decided to resurrect it and waste a lot of time filling it out. 

The only reason I decided to follow through and post this was a.) I'm cleaning out my drafts and b.) I know I'll cry laughing (at myself) reading this in twenty years. Will blogger even exist in 20 years? Will I even exist in 20 years? Who knows. It all seems a little extra for 2017, but then again, what isn't these days.

For your sake, this post has been condensed. Click below to keep reading...but may I suggest making sure you have ample amounts of time because holy guacamole, it's long.
