it only hurts when I breathe.

We moved my sister.
We moved my sister to college.
We moved my sister to college in a span of 24 hours.
We moved my sister to college in a span of 24 hours, and she no longer will be across the hall.

Oh Allie, I hope life is good to you.

I'm a coward, not a fighter
disguised as a lover.

lonesome place

Night lights, on the drive to the airport.

The history books forgot about us,
and the bible didn't mention us.
Not even once.

I woke up thinking,
"love is not easily offended."

I desire 'all hale kale' from the Veggie Grill, now.
car searching is scary

my God, my God.

I'm not so naive,
my sorry eyes can see.

hemming a dress I rescued from the Thrift Store a few months ago.

finger-rolled hems suck
paper mache?
angel food cake
lavender sweet tea
I love Taylor Swift;
I hope she has more and more success.

where gravity is dead

That's where you've found yourself,
riding into the sun
On a raft made for one.

fruit lady
Kelly Rose; aka Frend
bike ride
deep breaths

life is good.
life is blessed.

Last Song

Yesterday, I mentally said 'goodbye' to my room.
I photographed it so I would be able to have it always.
I do love this room.
I got to decorate it all myself.
It was so mush fun going to thrift stores and gradually piecing together my vision.
I wanted to incorporate worship; with it's feelings of serene peace and ageless beauty.
But I also wanted a place that felt creative, thus freeing me to create.

Seriously, I've learned so much this year.
SO many blessings and good memories, along with the bittersweet closed doors.

I love my camera, so much.
I adore Beckham more and more, daily, hourly.
I want to learn how to play the guitar, but really am too shy to ask. Maybe someday.
overabundance = overindulgence

David Beckham, the original photo-hound.

The weather has been beautiful.
I think it realized that this summer's heat wouldn't break my will to have the best time possible regardless, so it let up a little and is smiling on me with Fall-like temperatures.

I have read 2 books in the past 3 days.
And my room is FINALLY really clean, including the closet and other 'cram' spaces;
feelin' good.

I've been daydreaming a lot lately;
I want a clothesline when I have my own house
I think I want to live near the coast, but Northern
I'm in love with Bon Iver

I find the simple rawness of life aesthetically pleasing.
The green of grass, the glow of sundown, the deep rich black of moist potting soil;
Creation is magnificent.

1. Watermelon Unicorn on demand. Ole!
2. the beautiful Birthday Girl has a mean Poker Face
3. I made a new earring holder out of an old frame, cost me maybe 5 bucks.

It was a good weekend. Back to reality today, sleeping in till noon and cleaning out my car and closet.

Things of beauty today;
new shoes
clean room
the high today of 80 degrees in July

I love this Summer.
