So, as many of you probably know, this summer passed me by in a blurr of bat drama. We woke up multiple times this summer to find bats flying around in our apartment. Today, it’s kind of a funny anecdotal story to tell people, but at the time it meant sleepless nights, dealing with landlords, living out of a hotel, and being constantly afraid a bat was gonna come swooping down at me at any time (I still check the ceiling every night before I go to sleep).

My roommate and I are now getting ready to move into a new, bat free apartment, and we couldn’t be more excited. In order to remember our year of going batty, Stacey got me this lovely bat ornament for Christmas. It is super cute and will be a fun way to remember a not-so-fun summer spent with one of my bestest buddies.
