Well, I’ve reached 100 posts. I’m giving up my Tumblr now. So long, it has been fun. I think I’ll start a new blog via blogspot or typepad to see what the world of other blogs is like. Farewell, dears!
Be curious, not judgmental.– Walt Whitman
YAY! While rummaging through piles of crap at Savers (my favorite thing to do in the whole world) I came across this little guy in the original box and all. A total steal! Isn’t it cute? Tiny…and instant!
You're A Fighter
“She’s 20 years old, her college career as a sophomore at Northern Arizona University is well under way and a bright future shines ahead for Amanda Rae Coughlin, a 2009 Sedona Red Rock High School honors graduate with a 4.0 grade point average. On March 29, Coughlin’s world came to an abrupt halt. Doctors diagnosed her with adenocarcinoma, an incurable form of cancer….” ...
Land of the great outdoors! And Mormons. It has taken me forever to finally put these pictures up, but here they are! We had a really great trip exploring Moab and its surroundings. It was beautiful, despite somewhat crappy weather. We did a little bit of climbing while we were there as well as a god amount of adventuring and one-on-one time with the poopsters. I can’t wait to go back. ...
Need a light?
I totally stole this idea from a random photo on a random blog, but I’m so proud of the outcome!

I ran my first 5k this weekend on Saturday!!! I feel so accomplished! I think I ran it in about 25-30 minutes, but they still haven’t posted our times yet? My goal was to run the whole thing (no walking) which I succeeded at! Now for the WARRIOR DASH with Sarah!!!!!!! www.warriordash.com
One a day. It keeps the doctor away.
Today on my lunch break me and Dave went and took pictures around downtown. It was nice to do something like that for a change…I want to do it more often. I forgot how much there is to learn in the realm of photography! Enjoying the new inspirations. Now, onto hours of homework.
Not trying to brag...
But I got to hang out with these cuties all day. See photo post above for extra-cuteness.
I’ve always had this perception that nice little old people are just like cute puppy dogs or infant children; they are simply innocent to the world around them, adorable. They process things at a slower pace than the sharp youth of our generation. You want to pet them, give them a high-five, talk about the cute little things they did when you last saw them. It finally dawned on me that cute...
On the Road
And so it has been decided. Jasmine and I will take an epic journey across the heart of our great nation. This trip will be a series of weeks (hopefully) from California to the great east coast. Final destination: currently unknown. There are actually a few unknowns, but may the planning begin. Tentative stops: 1. California, DUH. 2. Utah: Zion! 3. Colorado: Boulder, Denver 4. THE DEEP...
Grieving processes are awkward and hard. I’m so thankful I have friends who tolerate my bipolar moods during breakup sessions. I really thought this one was “the one”. Wrong, of course; big surprise. I laugh, I cry, I laugh, I weep, I sleep all day. I love my friends. I’ve decided to write off “love” for a while. I don’t want romance. I want to love...
Pizza is MAGIC!
Katy came over tonight. We ate lots of pizza. Then we ate lots of chocolate. I am glad to have friends who will listen to me bitch for hours and hours and will love me when I get fat and get acne from eating my feelings. Katy knows my life story just about. I’m glad we still have each other after all these years. Her hugs and pizza supply makes me feel happier.
Someday is today.
Someday, I want to be: 1. A Kindergarden teacher 2. An art teacher 3. A photographer 4. A furniture reapolster-er! 5. A furniture-all-around-maker! 6. A chef/baker! 7. A seamstress 8. A person who successfully sells things on Etsy? 9. An antique trader 10. A yoga instructor 11. A dog trainer (and maybe breeder too) 12. A mom

Letter From a Dear Friend
“I’ve realized that there are boys/men out there who can be almost entirely right for you. I fooled myself into thinking **** was perfect, ***** was perfect (the others I knew weren’t) and that the minor things that bothered me were just something you had to deal with in a relationship. I later realized that minor things turn into big things. My mama always says, if they are...

Lost in Translation.
Feeling a little lost these days. Not unhappy, not completely satisfied. Just existing. I don’t like that. I miss my camera. It used to be attached to me at all times, an extension of my body. Now it’s covered in dust sitting on a shelf. I want to pick it up and revive it but I think I’ll let myself down. It’s been so long since creating anything I’m proud of. I miss...

I finally mailed off my postcard collection, my entire collection of 60+ postcards! Somehow I’ve saved these for over eight or nine years in a box and haven’t done anything with them. I used to hang them on my wall when I was 13 years old, so the backs of all the postcards are covered with old pieces of tape. They are a little tattered and used up but somehow they’ve moved around...
