Home Thrifting

Come May, I will be moving out and getting my own place with my best friend, Ashley. In the mean time, I’ve been thrifting a lot and collecting items for our home. Ashley and I have very similar taste when it comes to decorating; anything eclectic, old-fashioned, funky, and colorful! So for the next few months I’ll be posting the thrifts we find for our home.

Ariane’s Letter

Yesterday I received another letter from my sponsor child, Ariane Mae. I always get excited to read her letters because it makes this experience more real. She tells me about her life and I tell her about mine.

My Dearest Casey,
Thank you so much for the pictures that you sent to me. You have cute pets named Lucy, Mandy, Lucky, and Lola. You are so beautiful in your picture. Last month we had a dental check-up and we have also many activities here in the center. I am now in Grade 4 and I study well. How is your family? I hope you will always include me in your prayers that I will be a good child always. Me also, I always pray for you. Thank you and God bless.
Love,
Ariane Mae

I’ve always been the person to make New Year’s Resolutions and never ever stick to them. This year is different because the goals I’m making ARE attainable and I can work on them year after year.

These are my five goals of 2013. Although I have done all five of these things, I want to learn to do them better and more often.

CHEERS 2013!
