This is Gideon! He’s my new betta fish, joining the snails and moss in what is currently harmony! I will probably be sharing stories and more pictures of him in the future, but I’m happy to have him with me! I’ve missed having a fish!
Photo by Taylor Little I have spent the last 16 years in some form of school, which has had its ups and downs, but soon I will be done! There are 28 days until graduation, and even though there seems to be an impossible amount of work left, I’m starting to get really excited about…

My little brother, Alec, is graduating from high school on Friday at the ungodly hour of 8 a.m. We are all very proud of him, and we wish him luck as he starts at Western Carolina University in the fall!
It’s summer vacation – which means working part time at Kroger and hanging out with my pals, but this summer brought a new friend into the Simkiss household. She’s around 3 years old, and her name in her old house was Gracie. We haven’t agreed on a new one for her yet, but she’s still…
