The forecast was supposed to be clear until the evening, but they awoke to chilly showers with a near brutal breeze. Erin was relieved that she’d trusted her gut and changed the venue.

We are still working opposite shifts, that isn’t something that will change anytime soon unless one of us drop our jobs.

Logan wouldn’t have been able to change his surname if Colin had protested, but the quick impromptu hearing in front of the judge was met without any opposition. Mallory had joined in on the name change, though she was mostly tagging along with her big brother.

I’ve spent my entire life cramped with too many siblings and not enough bedrooms, finally when everyone has moved out, Mom and Dad decide to expand. Now the house is huge, and I don’t know what to do with all the space. It’s weird having a second floor bedroom too, right down the hall from Mom and Dad. I’m not sure I’m a fan of that.
