Liebster Award: Stalking Blogs with Etiquette

I know there are differing opinions out there about blogging awards, but personally,  I’d like to look at it as a completely legitimate reason to stalk random blogs online, and tell other people how awesome they are (and I think that’s pretty cool)… So even though this is of a different colour than the average post, I’m honoured to be a…

The (Un)Trivial Pursuit

I hope I never stop pursuing Secret Projects. You know the ones… When you’re six years old, collecting buttercups and dandelions outside to bring to your mom, and you’re so excited to show her how much you love her that you burst into the house with the mud still on your shoes. Share this…
