  1. I love your list - definitely a good look behind the blog. I definitely need to time alone to recharge as well. How interesting that you started driving at 14! And that you've been to Auschwitz. I'd like to go I think though I imagine it is emotionally difficult.

    1. It was definitely emotionally difficult, but so worth it. Poland has actually been one of my favorite countries to visit! Thanks for stopping by, Katherine :)

  2. Great list! My first car was a Honda Civic too, but a 1996. My dad bought it for my twin sister and I when we were 16 because it was safe. We'd been saving up to buy a VW Bug.

    If you really knew me, you'd know that I hate chocolate. :)

    1. Really?! Chocolate? I've actually met a lot of people recently who feel that same. Personally, I love dark chocolate. Mmmm
