The Idea Behind the Blog
I'm Hailey Millette, an aspiring blogger! For years, I've wanted to start a blog, so here I am! My life could honestly be an amazing sit-com -- don't worry you'll see that shortly if you stay up to date on my blog. But, I just wanted to share my stories, thoughts, and advice that come from my exciting and chaotic life. I also want this to grow to be bigger than just me! I want to build a community that involves many, so don't be surprised if you see other people featured on my blog. That just means this blog is growing! Hope you love it!
Much love from hails ;)

WHY I WOULD MARRY A FIREFIGHTER
HAILS // AUGUST 10, 2018
Does anybody else hear a siren while driving, pray it's not a cop pulling you over, see a fire truck, and just sigh because oh my, firemen are just soooooo dreamy? Well, I mean they are, but that's not exactly the reason I've decided to write about why a firefighter would be the ideal person to get spontaneously eloped to in Vegas or to plan an extravagant ceremony for with the perfect dress and the perfect flowers and the perfect weather...
4 quarters > 100 Pennies

When reading the title, I'm sure many of you thought, "Does it matter? Both equal a dollar." But, I have to ask you: would you rather carry around 100 pennies or 4 quarters? Would you rather count out 100 pennies when paying for something or 4 quarters? The answer is obvious. Why carry around so many pennies when you have enough money to exchange it for coins of more value. And by now, you guys are wondering, "Ok, but who cares about money and why am I reading an entire blog post about lugging around a bunch of change?" Well, let me enlighten you: this post, in fact, is not about money. It's about... take a guess...
The Crazy Little Things
Hails // July 22, 2018
Recently, I've been asked quite a lot what the most exciting and the craziest thing I've ever done is. And to that, I have to say cliff jumping a couple weeks ago. My first cliff was 50 feet high, and I still can't believe I did that. But, when people were asking me these questions, I started thinking, why does my answer have to be something thrill seeking or illegal. I think I do a lot of small things that I would say are crazy simply for the fact that it keeps my life interesting, like sneaking slurpees and candy into a movie with my sister...
18TH BIRTHDAYS AND 1ST TATTOOS
HAILS // JUNE 23, 2018
One of my best friends, Anju Venki got tatted yesterday for her 18th birthday, and it excited me even more for my first tat. Is your 18th birthday the perfect day to get your first tat? I think so. It's like a coming of age ceremony almost -- like how at 10, I got my first pair of earrings and at 13, I was finally able to make my instagram and snapchat accounts...
