Holly Page

I know it's probably silly to have a list like this one, but there are a lot of things that I desire to do during my short time here on earth. Here's the list.

  1. Share the gospel with at least three people. (I'm really scared to talk to most people, so this would be a HUGE God thing.)
  2. Fall in love and get married. (Like most girls.. It may not be in the Lord's will for me. Ya never know)
  3. Hike the the Appalachian Trail.
  4. Visit all of the continents.
  5. Go scuba diving.
  6. Go to a country music concert.
  7. Write a book.
  8. Change someones life for the better.
  9. Show His love to the world, through the way I live.
  10. Face my fear of singing in front of people.
  11. Attend a USWNT soccer game.
  12. Learn how to play ukulele and the piano well.
  13. Become fluent in Spanish
  14. Go to the Grand Canyon
  15. Put gum on the Seattle gum wall.
  16. Visit a cat cafe.
  17. Adopt a Sharpei (Have you seen them?! They're the cutest)
  18. Be someone's favorite person. (Lol this is why this is a hopeful list, because this is unlikely to happen)
  19. Go on a cross country road trip with my closest friends.
  20. Have a family.
  21. See the Northern Lights.
  22. Have a song written about me.

  25. Swim with a dolphin.
  26. Play bubble soccer.
  27. Learn how to do a back flip.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
