Pillows and Owls and Driver's License (Oh my!)

Do these things have anything in common? Of course they do! They are all things that I received for my Birthday (OK, I didn't get a real owl, but I'll get to that in a minute).

These are some pillows that my lovely sisters made for me.

This one was made by Shea; It says "She is too fond of Books and it has addled her brain"- L. M. Alcott

Does this apply to me? *crickets chirping* :) Ok. Moving on.

This one was made by Claire; it says "I cannot live without books"- T. Jefferson

Another pillow, also made by Claire.
You might be wondering why there is an owl on the pillow. Well, ever since I was really little, I have always loved owls. I don't know why, I just have. One of my favorite books when I was younger was "Owl Babies"

Sam gave me this owl box filled with animal cookies. I give animal cookies to my goats for a treat, so when Sam gave this to me, he said "Here, it has something for your goats in it" :)

annnnnnnnd... DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!

At first, I thought that it would be weird driving by myself, but when I actually did, it wasn't weird. I love that I can now help the family by running errands for them and have already done so.
(I was SUPER excited the day that I passed the test, hence the goofy face in the picture)


  1. Congrats on your driver's license, Grace!! I'm really glad you passed! As I'm sure you are, too :)

    Hope you're doing well.

  2. Happy birthday and congratulations on the license! Sixteen is AWESOME! Really, I love being sixteen, and I'm sure you will too.
