Balloon Boy

Sometimes a yellow balloon is nearly the greatest thing in the entire world.
Sometimes you happen to have your camera ready at just the right moment.
And, sometimes, a single picture can make you smile a dozen times.

Simplistic Saturdays: Hello, Autumn...

Autumn 2013

Hello, Autumn. Welcome back. I've missed you. I'm glad you've returned.
You've brought your dancing leaves and colorful splashes once again. My heart is full.

When a month slips away...

Juni Snuggle

Tonight I am tired. Tomorrow I will be up at the school for 13 hours. (Which is a typical Wednesday for this semester.) I am not complaining, simply stating the facts.

With those two facts in mind you may understand that I had no intention of writing a blog post tonight. The only real intentions I had were to check email, eat a fresh baked cookie my sister had for me, and then curl up in bed with my cat. But, then I saw something on Facebook. (After all, Facebook totally counts as checking email, right?) I saw that one of my favorite bloggers Bethany had posted after a long blog break.

At the end of the blog post, Bethany wrote something that inspired me, "...let's start by 'doing' rather than talking about 'doing'."

What Bethany was talking about was the fact that she tried to write a post about why she was away from the blog so long, but then decided instead to just jump right back in and write. It inspired me. Why as a blogger do I feel the need to explain every single time I am away? Sometimes it is good to keep your readers "in the loop", but other times life simply happens. All in all, I was inspired tonight by Bethany's words. 

So, here I am, I am going to start "doing" too. I am going to begin and not give all of the reasons why I haven't been writing as much. Instead I will give highlights from life lately.

-I am nearly done with my Math class and it looks like I may even make an A!

-I'm currently working on a crocheted mermaid doll and look forward to sharing pictures soon.
-I have so many interesting stories that I come home with from experiences with individuals at work.
-Creative Writing has been a really good class for me this semester.
-I will be a bridesmaid in my sweetest friend's wedding in mere weeks!
-My youngest brother is officially taller than me, which means I am officially the shortest in the family. 
-I will most likely use this list to write more in depth blog posts later on.

How are you, blog friends?

For those in the U.S.A., are you looking forward to Thanksgiving?
