A Brief Lesson on Canadian Culture

Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 3

You thought I was done, didn't you? HA. Nope. I'm going to drivel on a bit more. See, on our way home from Greenville, we found the COOLEST little town in North Carolina.

My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
