Yesterday I decided that I wanted to take a trip to the beach today. I was all set and primed to spend my day in Santa Cruz and enjoy my time over the hill. Worked out and was ready to go. Then we (as a family) were going to take down all the Christmas decorations. BLEH.… Continue reading Knowing when to take a break.
This morning I had the pleasure of having coffee and catching up with one of my dearest and oldest friends. We’ve known each other over half our lives and have seen each other through the angsty teen years, different college/ career moves, and all the other ups and downs imaginable. Up until about two years… Continue reading Coffee dates soothe the soul.
It’s amazing how time has flown by. I’ve been back in the states for 3 months now and sadly my little ol’ blog is suffering. Life has been busy but not entirely too busy that I don’t have time to write. I just feel like things aren’t that interesting and exciting now that I am… Continue reading Unbelievable.
When I left for Spain a year ago, this was what I left with: a big bag that I checked, a carry-on and my college backpack. I could have checked 2 bags, but my cheapie, college grad self was not going to pay for an extra bag! Surprisingly it was enough. Sure I bought some… Continue reading A Suitcase and A Carry-on.
So right now I’m reading two books, both shared from friends and I must say that they both are causing me to do some major thinking and evaluating about myself. Fresh Faith by Jim Cymbala and Fearless by Max Lucado. Anywho, these books have been comforting in the fact that they are about your faith… Continue reading The Power of Prayer.
Right now as I am writing this my SBFF (Spain best friend forever) is boarding her plane back to California. It is so surreal. The past week we’ve been together and just hanging out; which is nothing out of the ordinary, but the next few weeks without seeing her on the daily will be different.… Continue reading All the Feels.
Today I wanted to say thank you. I don’t think I’ve told you that in a long time. Your presence in my life has been one that will never be forgotten. We’ve been through ups and downs and happy and sad. But we’ve pushed through. Persevered. I have been thinking about what you mean to… Continue reading Thank you.
Next week will mark 8 months here in España. When I count and make sure that I have the correct number, I can’t believe it. Time has really gone by so fast, and I only have a few months left here! Yikes! Today, March 5, is going to a freaking fantabulous day! Today three of… Continue reading 8 MONTHS?!
This is the first year in my short 23 years of life that I have not spent the holidays at home. So naturally it was different and I was slightly missing my fam-bam. BUT…my Spanish Christmas was not too shabby. So here’s what I did this year celebrating Christmas with my Spanish family 🙂 We… Continue reading Navidad en España.
NaBloPoMo prompt for Dec 19… Audrey Hepburn said, “If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have… Continue reading If my world ended.
