I made it to the Provo City Center Temple yesterday! This temple feels like home to me, and looks like something out of a fairytale. You know… I don’t know if anybody else does this, but… I’m very good at viciously beating myself up over things. At this acquired skill, I am the master.

The following very-true-story was originally written on my UnBirthday last December, as I reflected on one of my most favorite years of my life: It’s December 13th, my 8th unbirthday!!! WOOO! So, let me tell you a story. *ahem* Once upon a … Continue reading Once Upon a Run
At 5:03 PM, with this signature, I officially signed a contract with Immortal Works LLC. “The Very Real World of Emily Adams” is going to be published!!!! I’m not only contracted for this novel, but for all of its sequels. I’m not crying… okay, I’m crying. I’m totally crying. I am overwhelmed with happiness. It’s just… unbelievable.
