Boil and Bubble.

So there is a legend here in this freezing valley... a story of magical place.. a place so wonderful, so miraculous, that it has brought wonder into the hearts of those of us who inhabit this wild, cold land.

The Hot Springs
Yes, it is true. They exist. I have seen it with my very own eyes. Hot springs. Could anything be more wonderful?  More magnificent. Nay I say.

Birthday Wishes!

SSSOOOOOO... guess what?   Today is my birthday! Turning the big 22, and I am going all out because really... its all down hill from here.

So, if you just so happen to hear of some chick caught running buck naked through that mountains..that may... or may not... be me. But enough about that, I have a surprise for y'all!

I got wifi for my hut! Yay! That means I will be able to write more often! No more of this posting once a week stuff. I can tell you all my stories as they happen, and keep you guys updated on life in the mountains sans cupcakes. Yay!!

What a wonderful day right? Luv you all!
