bring on the spring.

Love. love. lOVE.

(doodle of the day)

is the theme of 2010. everyone is getting married. EVERYONE. but that's just how it rolls at byu. Fall = the meeting. Winter = the engagement. Spring = the wedding. While I don't particularly see myself falling into this BYU trap, it happens to hundreds--HUNDREDS--every time. But hey, i'm happy for them. What's right is right...(let's just hope it's right).

Winter Semester of 2010 is overrrr. can i get a woot woot? Hellooo Spring. Bring on the bathing suits, sunglasses, tans, and barefooted soccer matches in the grass...i am so ready. Still wishing there was a longer break between the two semesters, but hey, what can you do? Classes start again on Tuesday (which unfortunately is my birthday). I'm excited for the sun and warmth, not so much the continuation of classes.

san felipe

Last week my favorite people in this world went to my favorite place in this world.

My family went to San Felipe, Mexico for their Spring Break. (without me). After spending time there two or three times a year for 14 years of my life, the lack of visits has left me with some SERIOUS withdrawals. Once we moved to northern california our trips to mexico became fewer and fewer. The last time I visited was at the end of my junior year in high school. Three years ago. THREE YEARS! please, take me back! i miss my childhood. So many memories at this place.

I miss waking up to this in the morning,

because we were sleeping on the porch to see it.

i miss watching this after dinner.

i miss finding things in the tide during the day.

i miss eating tacos back in town and buying random trinkets.
i miss riding 4-wheelers all over the dunes and trails.
i miss making sand castles.
i miss fireworks in the dark.
i miss looking for sea glass on long walks.
i miss kayaking as far out as i can before i get too scared to go any farther.
i miss the card games, the easter egg hunts, the turkey bowl soccer games on the beach....

but most of all, i miss my family. i miss laughing, joking, and just spending time with them away from the world.

april fooools

that last post says it was posted march 24th, but i just posted it. I'm pretty sure it is april 1st. oh well. i love april. LOVE APRIL. it just sounds so spring-y. ya know? plus it's my birthday month. which means i'm soon starting my third decade on earth. i'm not sure how i feel about that. we will leave that blog for the 27th. time is such a crazy thing. it used to take so long. i miss those days immensely. where did they go? i used to just be free from worries, just dreaming of what my life would be like in the future. and now it is here. i am making it. everyday. i can't wrap my mind around that. who am i going to be? there's something so exciting yet so nerveracking about that question. it reminds me of one of my favorite songs...
