A day at sea

That one moment when you feel infinite. When you feel that absolutely nothing could go wrong because you are in the hands of an angel is what I felt like yesterday. I had the pleasure of going whale watching with my family and my new beau in Dana Point. It was cold and gray ( my favorite type of weather ) and it was drizzling. I loved just closing my eyes on the boat and feeling the rain and the cold chill my forehead. We saw many dolphins, a huge whale and a little curious sea lion. haha We didn't get a picture of that darn whale but we got a few of the dolphins. :) I felt like I was in Washington again and nothing could have ruined my day....I love days like that.

Anyhow...after we got off the boat we ate at an amazing Argentine place and soon went home to get some rest. Stephen stayed to take a nap because we wanted to see a movie later and he lives far so I figured he would stay. We saw a movie later that day and had a spontaneous little date in Newport and ate at this cute little Italian restaurant called Ciao. I'm enjoying this new stage of courtship....holding hands and him putting his arms around my shoulder. hehe. Strolling under the moon and listening to chapel bells, talking over coffee and all that jazz. Basically I have been completely blessed latley and I'm savoring every moment like always. Hope you are all doing well and can't wait to here how you girls have been doing!

like a badge part deux

This is a picture of a bridge in Washington I don't know why I can't remember where it is or what it's called. But I know it was beautiful and I enjoyed it with all my little heart. Just so you girls know...I've been seeing someone! I've been busy with school and praying about this wonderful fellow. :) I think I've finally met a guy who will take care of my little badge so I don't have to pretend this time. And haven't visited blogland in awhile but I will be posting a lot this week because I am now on Easter Vacation. I don't know if you remember my dust particles post a little while I said I felt like something was coming? Well. It came. A week ago he asked if he could pursue me and this week he formally asked my parents if he could court me. So we are off to a good start and we are going to keep God first. I will keep you posted! I love you girls so much and I hope you have a wonderful week!

P.S I am going whale watching this Tuesday......let's hope I see one!!!

P.P.S New dreamers...please oh please say hello! I would love to be friends with you.

clean white love

Do not arouse or awaken love before it so desires. If he only knew.

P.S Kelly ann knows where this was inspired from. hehe

like a badge

I wear my heart like a badge yet I'm self conscious when he asks me if its real. I can never get past the green eyes or the blue eyes. I can never get past the distance or the nonsense. I'm easy to read but I want to learn how to hurt a man. I want to learn how to pretend I don't care. I want to return the favor.

by the seaside

I had woken up in a small house by the seaside that smelled of seawater and lavender. It felt familiar but new, everything in white lace and light shades of pink and gold. There is a small kitchen with hand painted roses on the counter tops and a beautiful table with shells placed carefully around the edges. I look around to the window and a gust of wind touches my face causing me to blink my eyes. The doorbell rings a sad and low tune...I feel like something is coming. I feel like maybe this is where I am supposed to be. Although this little house is quite lovely I already feel lonesome.
I slowly walk to the door and find outside a letter and a package...for me? I bring the package inside and find a string of butterfly lights, 3 little sparkly fish made out of clay and a dried up rose. I immediately hung the lights over the window and wondered if someone would see. My fingers were stained with glitter from the clay fishes and I clasped the dried rose in my hand and made a wish. I was so amazed at these little gems I forgot to read the letter. If I can find my way back to this place I will try to read it or learn who these where from. I feel like I'll see this little house again someday....but maybe with someone else. I want him by the seaside with me. I want him to love me forever, but he will never find this place unless I show him.

the world is alive now

"The spring is upon us, follow my only song
Settle down with me by the fire of my yearning
You should come back home, back on your own now.
The world is alive now, in and outside our home
You run through the forest, settle before the sun
Darling, I can barely remember you beside me"

I'm naturally a winter and ice girl but I'm actually very excited for spring to come soon. I have been getting more letters than ever!!! And I would love it if you would write me one! Message me on facebook if you'd like to start writing!

a thank you

I started this blog just last Christmas. An old friend from high school has a popular blog and it sparked my interest. She inspired me to start a blog because I saw how it gets the mind and creative juices flowing. I didn't really understand what a follower was haha and now 60 of my own is just so funny to me. I have been on here for such a short time but I wanted to personally thank every single one of you. You girls mean so much to me! I wish I could give a big hug to all of you! I've made such great friends already: Krissie, Olivia, Kelly, Courtney, Kim, Magnolia and the list goes on an on! You girls are so wonderful, loving and beautiful. I love your kind spirits and even though this is only means more than that to me now. For me, it's a place to share inspiration, love and encouragement. So....a big thank you and a warm, "I love you." to all.
