Hello! My name is Frankie and I am a writer and teacher based in Southern California. I write web articles, blog posts, and short stories. You can find out more about my work by clicking the links above. Thanks for stopping by!
My cousin Chelsea took these amazing photos of family and friends getting ready for and at the rehearsal. I had to share them because 1) they're gorgeous and 2) I am so anxious to get the pictures of the wedding from our photographer and this is one of the ways I can cope. Happy Monday :)
Travelling is one of my favorite things to do. It's fun to explore places, eat new foods, and take in some culture. In a week, it will be summer and Micah and I are going to go on our honeymoon in Japan! As for other places, here is the short list of other things I'd like to do.
[Back to our regularly scheduled programming] With wedding stuff happening, I haven't been reading as much as I like, BUT I have been doing getting through a few pages, including doing some reading on Japan for our upcoming honeymoon (eep!!). Here are some recent reads.
I'm still trying to process the events over the last few days (aka a post wedding reflection).
[makes mental note to load more posts before wedding frenzy hits] Here’s a writing prompt for you! Context: I teach first and third grade religion at the school that I work at and one of the lessons I taught today to my third graders was about plant and animal life. The matching assignment? Write a poem about your favorite animal. Read the prompt and give it a try!
We have officially passed the four-week mark for Micah's and my wedding. I don't really have anything to say on the matter except that when Micah and I were watching Friends for the millionth time, I enjoyed watching Monica and Chandler's wedding planning storylines a little more.
April is going by so fast. Here are some random images from my phone from this month. Happy Monday!
Random list of favorites :) Happy Monday
