Blog posts ahead? Um yea, I sure hope there are
Thinking for an idea for this blog came with a deadline and a few personal goals. I knew I wanted to come up with an idea right away to get started, it needed to be something that was sustainable and substantial if I was coming up with weekly content, and I had to really, really, reaaaally like it. The last one being the most important, I wanted to enjoy sitting down and creating every week. So I thought about things I loved. I love spending time with people, my friends, and my family.
My Lil’ sis Alex is a combination of those two things, and she’s growing up to be a miniature version of me 😀 We laugh and joke about the same things, when we’re together it’s like our minds are one even with an eight-year gap between us.

Not gonna lie this was pretty fun. I love just taking out my phone for a few pics or real, funny video on the go and this felt effortless. I showed this to my little sister and she couldn’t wait to make her own. Putting this up made me excited about what other content I could create for my blog. Here’s to more vines and laughs from the Lil’ sis 🙂
