    “mail call”…really? i think maybe that’s the point in the video where you would have been laying on my bed cracking up at yourself…or maybe the flea part? either way, it was funny. i like your new house! and it WILL be good. very good. love you.

    I feel so in touch with you reading your blog and watching your video. Okay, I’m dying to know where’s your bathroom? Praying that you rest your feet on the only solid foundation in life, Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 3:11). Love to you sweet Annie!

    And I just realized that adding the sentence about how funny you are after the sad video made it sound insincere. So… I really did shed a real tear as I was sad for your heart as you left. And in other separate news- the rest of your video was very hilarious. I hope that cleared that up and I will stop leaving comments now. Love love love.

    Annie, you crack me up! Ok, the part where you were leaving town was sad, but besides that you are just precious! Thanks for making that for all of us. Nashville is awesome, and you’re going to love it!

    ANNIE BLOGS and I love it! In fact, last night, I heard my mom laughing at something on the internet, and I walked out, and found her watching YOU. I was like, “Mom, that’s my friend Annie!” And she said, “You have to watch this! She cries – it’s so sad.”

    It WAS so sad.

    BUT! I’m back in Nashville now, and Team Annie is about to unite. Tonight. Eastland Cafe in East Nashville for happy hour – I’ll be there at 5:30. See you there? YES PLEASE!

    a few things i have to share with you about the video.
    1. make room in there for me and skaarly on SB09.
    2. get yourself a cooler key something like disney princesses, you deserve it.
    3. make sure you have a place to watch penelope, a lot.
    4. Don’t be afraid to rock the big clip. and the ring. i know you’re not afraid.

    i miss you but i can’t wait to hear what the Lord is doing. P.s. i might send you something in the mail.

    I’m just now watching this where you linked it up for 31 days. I thought I went back to the very beginning when I first started reading you two years ago but maybe I didn’t?

    I definitely just cried at the shot of you leaving Marietta. But I’m so thankful you were courageous and made that move. Go you! And God! 🙂
