    Thank you for sharing these! Several made me smile. Hitching at age 5?!?!? I bet there is a great story there! And several made me nod in agreement (I like pretty ink pens too).

    P.S. I am visiting from NaBloPoMo, have a beautiful, blessed day.

      Hey Tamara, thanks for visiting! I used to think my hitch-hiking story was pretty funny – until I became a mother. Now I’m like, “Please don’t let this little girl do some of the crazy things I did as a child!” LOL

      Hey Winnie! Thanks! Unfortunately my collection of pretty ink pens is dwindling. It seems my little one is beginning to like them too – like taking them apart that is. smh…

    Hello Kennie!!
    I love your list. It’s fun to get to know about you! As I was reading, I was like oh that’s cool! Me too! I do that.. Except the hitchhiking story… Now that is one for the books! A classic! Thank you for sharing!

      Thanks Christy! Yeah, the hitchhiking story is a doosy. I’ve been thinking about telling the story on my blog, but I’ve been hesitant. My mom and I were talking about the incident recently, and while I used to think it was a funny story, it doesn’t sound so funny since I’ve become a mom.
