..growing up i never wanted to speak a second language..
..i absolutely disliked having to respond to my family in spanish..as spanish was the
only language they spoke! so i hid behind the couches...in the bedrooms....in the backyard!
yah that worked for a few years! then it happened..
..i was asked to relearn spanish on my mission..
..and it so happened that i found myself in france....
so...ughh...i had to learn french on top of that!!! ughhhh!!!
but in light of it all!!!
i am grateful for the many languages that do exist in this world!!!

i come home! well drive home from work wondering if dallas were a better fit for me! nice bed..animals..FAMILY..sisters..mom..dad..stevie..free food..arroz con gieso..,mamalinda..100plus temp..and the list goes on and on...
..so yes..to pick up from where i left off...i arrive at the house...and it seems to me that there is never an end to that word....w.o.r.k!?
this photo i guess puts it better than i can!

ive always wanted to own a pair of those skinny super short cut off shorts..and voila!! what a better day than today!!!
we should probably consider a new name..something that really sinks deep in the heart!! for she did bring some new love in our lives!!!! i shall say it was her.kates.i..but kates says it was alllll me and bernina!!! heyy..i did sew my first pair of jeans all by myself tonight!! it was exhilarating!
we were also talking over the sewing project about what we would like to change about ourselves to prepare for that special someone!! more like...special us for having that special someone..but anyhow...i believe i would like creativity to be a attribute that she posses!
although...who am i to say that she needs to be a certain way or not!! i dont think it works that way! plus....everyONE is creative in their own way and mind!!! right!?!?
for now..bernina will have to do!!

do you ever imagine yourself falling..just free falling...maybe from a building..a tree..a longboard..a roof....maybe for someone..well..
let me ask you...how does it end up?
is there something that catches you...someone maybe..do you fall into the arms of that special one..or maybe a super thick blanket being supported by those good ol friends...
..how does it work? how do you end up safe?
what is it that breaks your fall?
i say this rugged, vintage, ten buck pair of sneakers!
yup!! thats what saves me!
they have been through rain, snow, sleet, sun shine, a dance here and there, painting projects etc!
they are way super mature, experienced! they dont really wear their emotions on their laces or anything...no feelings hurt..even when i dont wear them everyday!!
soo..i suppose..ill be safe!!! yah!!! everything will work!! i can count on them from that fall of mine!!!!
sooo...for those of you who fear that fall of yours'....go get ya sum!!!!! trust me!
i love this

Monday, June 7, 2010
this morning i was driving to work..and i put this song on that austin recommended..but the glee rendition!!! wooWWWWww!!!!!!!
i was taking it all in!!! volume at the max!!! head banging with the melody, etc. im sure you get the jest..if you know me!!! kay...so...driving right!! and i see an odd object in the middle of road..?? figured it must have been a tree branch what not!! as i approached it closer and closer it became two objects..and it was almost too late for these poor guys!! two mallards (ducks)!!!!! boy and girl!!! now two things i noticed!!!
- first being..and this was incredible! the boy mallard waited til the girl had safely flew off to the side!! the boy literally was chilling under my car! he made sure she made it out first..then he followed!! what a champ!!!!! what a champ!!!!
- second being...that these two mallards were not lost! yes...they may have been a few blocks away from their actual home..but we dont know much about their world! they were exploring outside their norm! taking chances! being brave!
i hope there isnt much metal to clean up this morning.hope it too for me :)
this was my sunday shot. i havent taken any photos the past two days. which is odd because austin came down to visit and i dont like to see a moment go by not captured..hey i have like less than three months before im a lone mear deat!
soo yah..that goes to explain the reason ive fallen behind on my blog! could i just make mention though..its been the best week!!!
i read this book and it explained this imaginative illness that we can all catch..its called. the me disease..
so coming home, i wasnt to fond of having people ask me how my mission was...yes it was and still is important to help others feel what i had felt but it was always just about me!! didnt like it too much. i try to stay away from that now and im learning how to focus on others and considering what they are going through.
its scary though.
i become very vulnerable by taking that risk. that spirit of 110% commitment and just that energy. sure it can pay off in the end..and in my opinion.. it should pay off and totally be worth it. but sometimes its not picture perfect...
there has to be..you..
beats me...hahaa..im learning how all this works..one thing i do know though..is that..this..me disease...
these types of posts usually turn me off..hahaha!! and my intention was to share a few thoughts i have been having! thats it..we can happy. we won't be forced to be happy. but it is what makes the world go around.
that photo i took today isn't picture perfect but "it doesn't have to be perfect"
ehhhhh s'allllll goooooood doughhhhhh
there lies a smile at the end of every road worthwhile...
and all i can do is smile
