  1. Stumbled upon your blog and smiled. My husband’s name is holly. We usually spell it hali cause people often times mispronounce his name. I am kat by the way. 🙂 nice blog!

    1. Hey, thanks! Hali’s name is Halley but he spells it as Hali because people mispronounce it as well. And people I correspond with always call me Tara! Haha. That’s why I had to put that explanation above about tara lets being a Filipino phrase.
