With love.

So, for the last little while, I've been waking up at like 3 in the morning. When I can't get back to sleep, I've discovered that it can be a good time to catch up on a few blogs!

While I was browsing (which is generally a skill in which I find myself lacking), I found this blog about my adorable niece, Annie. And so, reader, since it's the month of February, I'm going to introduce you to my family, and the reasons I love each one of them. I hope it's not too boring for you, but -- well -- you weren't getting anything from this blog for the last several months (years?) anyway.

This is Anne-Marie.

In some ways, she reminds me of how I imagine my younger self -- except more awesome. (Mostly just that she's kind of a little person with a little voice, kind of like I was. BUT she compensates by blowing everybody's mind with her intelligence, perspective, and determination. All. The. Time.)

I love Annie for having her photo face worked out at a young age.
I love Annie for her love of music and how good she is at creating it.
I love Annie for being strong enough to let people know what she wants when other people would be afraid or back down.
I love Annie for having things figured out when sometimes I don't. She inspires me. It's good to know there're people that are going to take the world by storm. Annie's one of them. She already has.

$90,000 per second.

That's what people pay to run an ad during the Super Bowl.



I think I have more to say about Super Bowl ads, but I can't right now. My mind is a little blown.
