Bear With Me #FunnyFriday September 2015

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.
Happy Fall, Y'all!! I hope you all enjoy the rest of September!! The weather is beautiful here in California!! I do LOVE this time of year, though I do miss the colors of the changing leaves!

I am kind of obsessed with it!!!! That is beside the point... She also sent me chocolate. Now, I have been a well known chocolate hater for years. You guys! You guys! You guys! Switzerland does choc…

Use to be #UseYourWords September 2015

I miss the way life use to be. I miss seeing you walk in the door. I miss the electricity I would feel when our eyes would meet. I miss hearing you say my name. I miss staying up late in the night talking to you. I miss the way l…

Freshman Redo #SecretSubjectSwap September 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week sixteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

Happy September!!! Anyone else shocked that it is September already?!?!

My “Secret Subject” is: Back to school time, if you could go back in time to your freshman year, knowing what you know now, how would you do things differently? or would you? It was submitted by:

This topic really made me think. I thought of the endless list of things I could change. I thought of the endless list of things that I could keep as is. I thought of the endless list of things I did not do, that I could do. I am a huge believer in everything happening for a reason, and to learn from both the good and bad. So, I guess at the end of the day, I would not change anything. Everything happened for a reason, I survived, and I en…
