My Favorite Place

Today is going to be a fun day.

I'm meeting my mom at the Verizon store at 10am sharp (exactly when they open), and the two of us are getting our phone upgrades.

I plan on getting the 6S Plus. Which I realize is dinosaur-size, but I love that giant screen.
This afternoon, we are going to see "To Kill a Mockingbird" (one of my favorites!) at Playhouse in the Park followed by supper at Seasons 52.
This is such a cool place in Cincinnati. There is nothing like live theatre!
I've never actually been to Seasons 52 before, but their menu looks delicious—Lobster Pappardelle, I'm looking at you.

Right now though, I'm sipping on a cold bottle of water (my stomach is still a bit too sensitive for coffee after our team's pub crawl last night, imagine that) and all curled up in my most favorite place.

My bed, of course.
This is my bed in my most favorite bedroom I've EVER had. I used to live on the third floor of a gorgeous home built in 1919. I had slanted ceilings and everything. I miss that room.
My big, glorious bed.

There is nothing like getting to snuggle into your down comforter and fluffy pillows as you ease your way into a new day.

In the first grade, one of our art projects was to design a new sort of invention.

I created a bed that would fly me all around town, to school and church and the park (essentially, wherever my six-year-old self considered a happening place), and it came with built-in hamburger and milkshake machines.

Because, OF COURSE a flying bed should have those things.

I will never forget the illustration I drew of my invention.

There I was, sitting beneath the purple covers of my bed, a hamburger in one hand and a chocolate milkshake in the other, as my straw-yellow hair danced in the wind behind me.

Such a shame that invention never came to fruition.



  1. Oh my gosh, I was laughing so hard reading about your invention :) that bed would be the best thing EVER! I can't believe no one ever made that happen :)

  2. I just laughed aloud at work. Thank you for being the cutest!
