update: our sweet girl, natalie.

[natalie & me. september 2009.] 

this thursday natalie will be undergoing spinal surgery performed in dallas, texas.  her brothers will stay at home, her mamma, dad, gma & gpa (my mom & pops) will be by her side, helping her heal along with the angels. i cannot be there for my goddaughter when she awakes, but my Love will be forever surrounding her. 

your thoughts of hope are so very appreciated, as we have already been so gratefully affected by your kindness & Love.

thank you so much for taking a moment to rally for our sweet girl-
we are forever thankful.

Noted Blog of Love: Advice for All My Children.

Life is peculiar in a wonderful way sometimes.  earlier today i was sitting in class when i started thinking about the sweet letters lots of bloggers write to their future husbands.  i then began to ponder about writing letters to my future children.

well, sure enough- when i was exploring the blog-o-sphere later today i stumbled upon this new site "advice for all my children".  it is quite interesting & honest.  i really fancy it.  
here are some of my favorites so far:

{Quote of the Week.}

 week {siebenundachtzig}; 
note: rather an entry of the week...
{via: weheartit.}
everything changes & it’s exciting & lovely & such an alluring part of life. everything happens for some reason. everything will work out & it will be such a beautiful ending to an adventurous tale. when things feel awful it’s hard to see the outcome. it’s hard to stay positive & stretch our limbs to the sky each day. people leave, we leave, & it’s always hard because you think: why didn’t they love me? what did i do wrong? do they care? what about me? & you let those questions, each question, hollow you out a little more until your body is the heaviest hollow there could be. you can feel the question, each question, ache in different parts. why didn’t they love me, how could they love someone more? it aches in your belly, keeps you from eating. what did i do wrong? your constant retelling of every moment spent together, analyzing, it aches your whole skull. do they care? the thought that they don’t care, that they don’t think about your needs or worries or wants, well that aches in all the limbs. these aches make us weak, they keep us in bed fearing sleep. they keep us from telephones, from computers, from friends. because ‘why did they leave, why did they leave me?’   we are self centered by nature. people exist in our lives because they are meant to. each person, lovely or awful. they exist for exactly the amount of time they should. they teach us things. little things, extraordinary things about ourselves, our lives, the everything around us. that doesn’t make it easier to say good bye. it doesn’t make it easier to think that they have finished their task, made you stronger, & we must be strong. we must be strong. you exist,& it is extraordinary.

When you look at the world in a narrow way, how narrow it seems! When you look at it in a mean way, how mean it is! When you look at it selfishly, how selfish it is! But when you look at it in a broad, generous, friendly spirit, what wonderful people you find in it.

Have a happy Weekend, Loves!

My Senior Year Manifesto.

Learn: time management.  how to save money.  to cook. calligraphy.  to simplify.  to protect your heart.  not everyone means what the say.  respect is Love. to laugh. never fear. 
Live: with hope.  happily.  respectfully of yourself.  respectfully of others.  for today. for tomorrow. proudly.  gracefully.  filled with Faith.  with gratitude.
Love: all.  often.  life.  yourself.

{Quote of the Week.}

 week {sechsundachtzig};

{via: flickr.}
When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Don’t try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring for you, coming to see you, or staying attached to you. When people can walk away, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. What is hardest to accept about the passage of time is that the people who once mattered the most to us are wrapped up in parentheses.

true friends & Love.

[me & liz. may 21.2010.]

this is my best friend Liz & me on my twenty-first birthday this year in May. 
we met in the fall of 2007 after her good friend Joe "broke my heart".
it turns out that i would have him break it a million times over,
if it meant that having him do so, 
i would meet my best friend Liz.

Liz & i aren't necessarily the kind of best friends who have to see each other every day.
or even every week, at that.
we don't call each other every second, every minute of the day.
& sometimes, we can sit quietly without speaking,
but know what the other is feeling.
and, without saying anything
we can give one another hope & reassurance, 
without even saying a single word.

Liz & i are the type of friends who have only known of each other's existence
for 3 years, but our souls communicate as if we have known
each other since before we were born.

in two days Liz will marry the Love of her life.
in two days i will sign a licence stating that i did, in fact, witness such a magical moment.
this couldn't be any more of honor. 

being able to stand next to my best friend,
while she commits herself to someone who loves her immensely, 
and she him,
 is such a beautiful thing.

having the honor to stand by my friends, 
(Jenny, Julie, & next June, Katherine...)
while they declare their everlasting Love,
is one of the most wonderful things in the world.

& i cannot wait until they 
stand beside me
the day i marry the Love of my life.


To know someone here or there 
with whom you can feel 
there is understanding 
in spite of distances 
or thoughts expressed -- 
That can make life a garden. 
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe.

Carolyn + Cameras= Love. (& an instant fit of giggles.)

my oldest niece Carolyn is not shy.
no, she is rather the exact opposite.
& one day i know she is going
to end up on tosh.o or some other
show featuring funny internet clips-
because she loves her some camera time:

i Love her!
