Happy Valentine’s Day, Everybody!

Happy Valentine’s Day, guys! If you’d like to check out my post I did last year for Valentine’s Day click HERE. <<< this post is the informative part of Valentine’s day…my post today is just my side of Valentine’s day 🙂

Every family celebrates Valentine’s Day in their own special way! This year, my family is celebrating in a whole new way! Let me give you a rundown of this past week so you’ll know what today is like!

Monday: Abby (me) wakes up with a cough

Tuesday: Abby (me) wakes up super dizzy and with a small fever

Wednesday: Dad wakes up super dizzy and with a small fever

Thursday: Abby starts feeling better, dad still sick. Little sister starts feeling achy towards bedtime.

Friday (today): Little sister wakes up with a cold, mom starts feeling something coming on, dad recovering but has a cough, Abby (me) trying not to cough up an appendix.

Annnd that’s how my family is celebrating Valentines Day! If we weren’t sick we’d probably be doing school and working so I guess this sickness is a blessing as we all get to rest…but I think I’d choose reading 30 pages about how microwaves work for Chemistry over this cough 😂


Well guys, Happy Valentines Day! I hope you all have a great day! And if you have any chocolate…eat so for me ❤ ❤


What do you guys do on Valentine’s day? What’s your favorite kind of chocolate (dark, milk, or white)?

The Pen-Pal Tag

Hello everyone! Today I’m here with a really fun tag that Rosy over at Rosy’s Writings nominated me for. Thanks so much, Rosy! Just to let you know this post is a bit counterproductive to this tag…you’ll see what I mean when you start reading 🙂


QUESTION 1: WHEN DID YOU START SNAIL-MAILING? So I just found out what snail-mailing means…and now that I know what it means (thanks google), I’d say I started “snail-mailing” when I was around 5 🙂

QUESTION 2: HOW MANY PEN PALS DO YOU HAVE? Sooo currently….none 🙂 All my friends just text me. The last time I actually sat down and wrote a letter was about 5 years ago, to my pen-pal at the time…we don’t talk anymore though unfortunately. 

QUESTION 3: DO YOU DECORATE YOUR ENVELOPES? If I did write letters I probably wouldn’t unless it was for a birthday or holiday.

QUESTION 4: THEMED LETTERS OR RANDOM? I’m a super random person so definitely random. 


QUESTION 6: WHY DO YOU WRITE LETTERS? If I did write letters they’d be for fun and just to write random fun stuff but also to just talk about life stuff 🙂

QUESTION 7: DO YOU WRITE LONG LETTERS OR SHORTER LETTERS? Kinda depends on who I would be writing…I have friends who write in abbreviations and other friends that write super long emails…which I think is fun! I’m definitely not an abbreviations fan…though I can adjust for their sake.

QUESTION 8: WHEN DO YOU RESPOND TO LETTERS AND HOW QUICKLY? I guess it depends on how long the letter is. When people email me I usually respond in less than 24 hours but it just really depends on the length of the email/letter 🙂

QUESTION 9: HAVE YOU EVER WAITED TO OPEN LETTERS? When I was younger I don’t think I did. I’m not very patient, though I do keep letters from when I was younger and read through them once in a while. 



And the last thing is to write down 5 Things I like to do with pen-pals…I can’t honestly say I have 5 things…so I’m just skipping this one 🙂


My nominations are: 

Beautiful Things

Soldier Girl Stories annnd

Lula Boo



And that’s it! Thanks again, Rosy! See you guys soon 🙂
