Yum!

Although we weren’t at the creepy pope table, we were sitting by a giant picture of a spaghetti-eating contest, and a picture of the bear! (It’s a bear damnit!!!)

After dinner we went back to AlOe’s place and played some Mario Kart and Guitar Hero and watched Mickey Mouse Fight Club for JoeJoe!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
