  • Dear person leaving rude comments,

    I am flattered that you are spending so much time reading my blog. That’s sweet. If you have tons of free time it might be fun for you to start your own blog.

    As of right now, my comments are open to anyone so you can keep leaving them. Since my mom & grandma read this blog I will keep deleting the rude ones. It’s not a huge inconvenience. I would hate to take away the joy that you experience waking up everyday thinking of clever “one-liners” that would make any 13 year old proud.

    XO. elsie

  • dear rude commenter,
    let me know how you get the free time to spread negativity! cause you really must have nothing to do with yourself that’s positive…which is…well…sad. anyway, you should google “hobbies” and find something more useful to do with yourself!!! it’ll work you wonders!
