5 Things I Loved About my Trip to Guatemala

Okay, first of all let me tell you that I am completely obsessed with my parents. Do you remember the scene (you better already be nodding your head yes) in Sixteen Candles when they are at the high school dance?

The next oldest sibling after me is 10 years older. I was sibling less when I turned 8 years old. Once a month (or something like that) my parents would host Sunday dinner at our house. OH BOY. My dad would grill his heart out on a big Weber grill in our beautiful backyard. I would inhale the smoke coming out of that grill like it was the freshest air in the world. Trust me – you’ll never have a better steak than one that my dad makes. Snapped my pops cooking dinner on ye ole mini Weber grill (the big one didn’t fit in his suitcase):

Ever since Harry Potter came out when I was 12 I have loved/secretly wanted to be an owl.
