I just really can never get enough of these two. I'm a big fan of the last-minute panic technique. If only I could create that for myself on a daily basis...
Well that's not creepy at all... but I mean, it's no wonder Stephen King is the modern master of Horror. I hope everyone has a terrifying... I mean a safe and fun weekend! Happy Halloween!
Especially with that summer reading 😂 It's that time of the year to get lost in a good book.

Inspiration may come on it's own, but it is certainly far more likely to come if you give … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Leigh Michaels

Windmills are … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote)
