// words of spring //

i love the breath of the wind on my neck,
blowing my hair away from my face,
reviving me and filling me with a freshness only nature can give.

i love the gentle touch of the sun on my face, 
stilling the slight shiver that runs through my body
calming me and putting to rest the worries of my mind

i love the humming sound of nature that meets my ear,
reminding me that birds, bees, and creatures,
are working in this new spring day.

i love the peaceful night,
when everything  and everyone is quiet,
and the cloud mottled sky, 
with stars peeping from behind,
watch over the close of the day.

// calling for all able bodies //

do you have thoughts that you almost hate?

*psshhh*

calling for all able bodies

sinful desires that drive you insane?

*psshhh*

Jesus is the captain, he's leading the troops

horrid temptations that satan so carefully places in front of you?

*psshhh*

our battle cry is love

the soldiers of the flesh are marching.

*psshhh*

we attack at dawn

// living in the now //

we all have things we're looking forward too,

and we always will.

but while we wait for those things, we need to focus on the now.

what's happening in life right now?

not next week, next month, next year,

now.

sometimes when you're living in the moment it becomes more than a moment,

it becomes a memory; and those are what last.

.

you all know i'm looking forward to summer, 

but in order to celebrate the now i'm enjoying spring.

and i have changed my blog design in honor of it. 

it is very much pink, but who can't use a little more pink in their life?

i also want to say, thank you all of you for your many sweet comments.

they mean so much to me. 

enjoy your spring my lovelies and remember to celebrate life.

// your decision //

i never write posts asking for ideas about what to post about,

i feel that to be lazy and slightly rude.

but today i was wondering if there was a topic you would like to hear me discuss?

i'm not asking for post ideas, but rather what you would like to read.

i'd love to write on anything you suggest, whether its a single word or a topic.

its up you to you.

its your decision.

// things learned //

a couple things i've learned so far in the year of 2015

-that the word height does not end with a 'th'. you do not pronounce it like width or length but like weight.
i am so confused, this is a major crisis.   

-there are a lot of cool places in this world, but i wouldn't trade seattle for anything.

- that i have a small* obsession with twenty-one pilots

"migrane"

-i want a record player. very much.

-i love twinkle lights. they make my life 91% better

-there are too many books and too little time. but that doesn't stop me from reading

-my new phrase is: "don't conform to the norm". maybe its cliche but i don't care.

disco pineapple agrees
-that muffins are the greatest food ever.

-that makeup is fun, but a heck of a lot of work

-that i am unable to make a blog post without lists. and i blame it on abby. completely and utterly on abby. thanks beautiful.

recovering from being sick

sunshine,

silence,

crocheting,

sisters,

fluffy clouds,

a jokes about holding them {clouds} in our hands. 

it was lovely. 

and also, i have 30 followers.

i'm amazed thirty people want to read my ramblings. 

 thank you. 

thank you so much for reading my words. 

it means a lot. 

in honor of you all,
