Horror Movie Marathon: Wrap Up (or 2016 Gratitude 1: My Best Friend)

Mikey and I completed our month of horror movies. Below is our very lengthy wrap-up discussion. It is doubling as my first 2016 Gratitude post for November because the thing I am most grateful for in my whole life is that I managed to find my soul mate among the billions of people who share this space rock. He challenges me to new heights, supports me in my lows, and – as cheesy as it is – genuinely inspires me to be the very best me that is possible. My life is greatly improved with his presence, and the fact that we can entertain ourselves for hours just by hanging out in the same GoogleDoc is just one reason for that. Today, and every day, I am grateful for my Mikey.

For my Gratitude Song List: Becky G’s Shower.

Enough smooshy stuff! Here’s the Horror Movie Marathon wrap-up. Enjoy!Read More »
