I don’t care if you don’t like cats, if you’re an animal owner&lover, you should be able to appreciate and maybe even relate to this. one year ago yesterday I was in a dark place, dealing with a lot of inner demons and feeling very worthless. one year ago today (after days of trying to get them inside) we got the kittens in the crate and my heart made the decision to keep them before my head could realize it. between vet visits for their chronic illnesses, medicines, food and litter—after force feeding them to get their nutrition, and their struggle to trust us, these two have been quite the financial, emotional, and physical responsibility. but I wouldn’t have done it differently. they have brought me such joy this past year and have taught me so much about myself. they gave me a purpose and a reason to get up and go to work, and they gave me something to look forward to each day. the love I gave to them, I feel given back to me every day, doubled. I am so blessed. you can see the difference in the bottom pictures between now (bottom right) and a year ago (bottom left) and I am proud to say that I did that. I. did. that. I saved two lives but really, they saved mine. I love you PJ & Waldo, happy one year anniversary, here’s to many, many more! 🐾🐾

22 years ago tataween mawie decided to make her debut, ending my reign of being an only child. she was due 10 days later, on my 3rd birthday, but she must have known better. even though she instead screwed up my dinner plans and all I could focus on we’re my damn chicken nuggets, once 4:20 pm came around, all I cared about was my baby. not mom and dads baby, MY baby. I instantly and instinctually became protective over her & she became my favorite thing. growing up she was my best friend, my #1 fan, and my biggest cheerleader—the reason I ever accomplished anything. if kathleen said I could do something, I knew I could do it. piano recitals, gymnastics meets, swim meets, cheer competitions, she was by my side telling me “you got this”. and even though she drives me crazy sometimes because we’re polar opposites in so many ways, I wouldn’t change it because we balance each other out so well. I’m glad you were my very first sister turt🐢 I’ll probably never be able to top the 21st birthday I gave you last year but I know you’re going to have an amazing day. I love you @kattymariee my turtle turtle. happy 22nd!🎉🎁
How to appreciate fame
"unlimited. together we’re, unlimited. together we’ll be the greatest team there’s ever been. dreams the way we planned them, if we work in tandem, there’s no fight we cannot win" #fourmusketeers after what the four of us have been through, and after what we have accomplished, I’m afraid for anyone or anything that thinks it’s a good idea to get in our way.
happy birthday to my strong, beautiful best friend of 11 years now! I can’t believe it’s been over a decade since we met at the first OBHS gymnastics practice & instantly clicked. I’ve never felt a bond with someone quite like ours before. you are my sister. you are my family. everything that we’ve been through together has solidified that. when my world was falling apart, the only person I wanted by my side was you. you knew exactly what to say or what not to say and exactly what to do to take care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself. I will never be able to thank you for all you’ve done for me but you know that I’m always here for you and you always have a spot in our family (you’ll just have to trek all the way to South Carolina now—come visit us soon!). I am blown away by your accomplishments and I am so proud to know you. I love you alissa marie corallo, happy quarter century!
