In honor of the holiday we’re doing this a day early. Check out this journal entry from 26 (!!!) years ago. Note the line near the bottom about how “Some people ONLY get Valentines from their parents.” This is still something I’m working through.
What did living my best life look like in second grade? Apparently it involved roller skates. And working toward that elusive two block adventure.. Can we also pause for the cause a moment though and appreciate how good I was at cursive at age 7 and a half?
Y’all. Seven-year-old me was pretty great to have in a crisis.
Just when you thought the well might be running dry… I found my second grade journals. I had the same teacher in second and third grade so we had the same kind of daily writing prompt thing both years and I’m real glad I kept them all because there are some real gems in there,Continue reading “#tbt: Tales of a second-grade Laura”
Only the coolest 8-year-olds had Walkmans. And spoiled toddlers, apparently. I don’t know how I thought I was going to pay for one for her on her sixth birthday (two months away at this point). That was obviously a lie to make me look good in front of Mrs. Kleinhans.

It would haveContinue reading “#tbt: Tales of a third-grade Laura”

My parents are attempting to clean out some of the million boxes of things in their basement, which includes giving us kids some of our old stuff they’ve kept. A couple weeks ago, I collected one box from ’em – with such gems in itContinue reading “#tbt: Tales of a third-grade Laura”
I’m writing this whilst suffering from insomnia. But posting it later – the magic of technology. But what better way to entertain yourself when probably everyone else is asleep than to go through old CDs and laugh at your taste in music 10 or more years ago? Yeah, so, we already revisited my old mixesContinue reading “#TBT Tunes: Double trouble”
We are on Lawa CD 3, kids. Let’s do this. Track 1: “Two Pina Coladas,” Garth Brooks OK I might actually listen to this entire song. Old school Garth…nothing like it. And he remains one of like three country artists whose albums I can listen to in their entirety. Track 2: “Helplessly, Hopelessly, Recklessly,” JessicaContinue reading “#TBT Tunes”
