Dani and Jessie's November Wrap Up

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

I feel so old saying this but how the hell is it already December? I feel like it was JUST August. It cannot be almost 2016. I mean, when I say "last year" my brain still thinks that means 2012. I refuse to believe it's almost time for Christmas. And if there's anything I can do, it's deny things I don't like.

That said, November was a good month for me. I turned twentycouuuugh. Older. I turned older. I got to go to my hometown for Thanksgiving and see my family. I got to go Out of Africa wildlife park and see white tigers and regular tigers (neither of which are from Africa....) play in a pool. I fed a giraffe. Bonded with a grizzly cub and shared a mental connection with a wolf. Maybe those last two are partially made up but it was a really fun day.

Blog-wise, Dani and I were on a roll! We posted a bit more this last month and I feel excited about blogging for the first time in a while. Maybe it's that we're already making BEA plans with some amazing bloggers. Maybe it's knowing that after 10 years I get to see Dani twice in less than 8 months. Who knows! But check it out:
