Time to Give Back


I sat down to my blog this morning,
 looked at the side bar,
and saw Aspiring Kennedy has 502 followers.

What the what?

Well, gee... 
thanks, you guys. 

I feel cool,
but we all know that what makes blogs grow 
is awesome readers that "get it,"
and subscribe for a daily dose.

Thanks for choosing to do that with my blog.

It's really nice of you.

In honor of the best readers
who are happy to sit in on my gushing, traveling, and general dorkiness...

I brought you back some souvenirs from my trip!


Raspberry Jam from LaDuree
{because macarons aren't great after a week in the mail}
Double Devon Toffees
{if I can't eat sweets, you should}
BIODERMA Make Up Remover
Harrod's Finest Earl Grey Tea
{afterall, only the best for my dear friends}

  2. First kiss....ugh. Playing some stupid kids kissing game at a friends house. Went with a boy onto the tennis court and had my first kiss. I'd known him all my life, and still know him today. I guess that was 6th grade? Is that right? I honestly have zero idea of what year that was. Wow I have a bad memory!

  5. Donated to Japan via an old friend living there...


    ...first "real" kiss was in the "Senior" parking lot when I was a freshman in highschool. It was awkward, but sweet. That was the first and last time I kissed him :)

  6. Congrats! 500 is such a great milestone to celebrate. And well....why not celebrate with you and cross my fingers for a fun treat from your amazing travels :) xx

    PS- my first kiss was when I was 15 in Indonesia in the back seat of my car after a movie. We had a driver then, and when I looked up he was giving me the stink eye and I think he told my mom. She never mentioned it:)

  35. My first kiss-

    My first kiss was in our garage! I was 15. I was hanging out with my new boyfriend and as I was leaning against my mom's car he leaned in and kissed me. I froze!!!! Literally. I didn't move at all! I didn't move my lips, my hands, didn't close my eyes! I was completely frozen! He asked "are you ok?" I finally just nodded. I felt like a complete idiot after that! LOL!

  61. First kiss - was when I was 14 - I was exploring an abandoned house with a family friend (I've known since I was a kid) who was visiting from out of state and as we were talking he turned me around and kissed me in front of the piano. Sounds strange, but it was really romantic.
