2015 is coming to an end, and because we want to start 2016 with a smile on our faces when we think back on 2015, we thought it’d be fun to list our 10 favorite moments of 2015. And that sentence said 2015 a lot. Sorry.
So, let’s see if we find 10 things we agree should be on this list! I’m a bit excited. Let’s be positive for a change!
Well, technically it’d be the South, but who cares about the details? And no, this is not about the TV show, a fairytale or the movie. This a post about Sam and Frodo.

And since we don’t spend our money on alcohol and parties we need something else (besides books, movies and travelling) to make sure every cent is spent. And honestly, if you could even remotely afford seing the main cast of you favorite TV-show in real life, wouldn’t you do it?

But this is not (just) about Jared. Continue reading
