i’ve been trying to figure out how to say this…

seeing as how i am much more emotionally attached to this blog than i originally thought.

wordpress: it’s not you, it’s me.

no really, though. i love wordpress! but my vision for this blog has slowly… i don’t know… become diluted? not clear? and it’s frustrating.

so i’ve moved:

i feel like it serves my purpose of what i need for an outlet — for right now. we’ll see.

i do have a fashion blog in the works for wordpress! co-authored by my best friend, annmarie. that is… if we can ever get it together enough to begin posting!

thank you all for always stopping by. it’s meant more to me than you know.

see you on tumblr :)

i turned twenty years old on saturday.
the photos above are just a few quiet moments from the day.

i’m surrounded by some really amazing humans, you know.

there’s so, so much to say… as always.
and no way for me to say it.
at least, not yet.

have a wonderful week, everyone.

in my senior year of high school, i took a lot of art classes.
at the end of the year… i was in a painting class.  and my teacher used to let me sit and paint even after the period was over.

i used to go out back by myself and sit in the grass. it was sunny and warm — about mid-may. and i used to just sit in the sun and paint what i saw while listening to coldplay.

i was so happy.

and the seasons
will change us new

you know me…
i could not be stuck on you
if it weren’t true.

i was swimming,
my eyes were dark
til’ you woke me
and told me that opening
is just the start.

now i see you, til kingdom come
you’re the one i want
to see me for all the stupid shit i’ve done.

blooming up from the ground
three rounds and a sound
like whispering you know me
and you know me.

this was our song
i still see the lights
i can see them.

and the criss cross
of what is true, won’t get to us
cause you know me
i could not give up on you…

and the fog of what is right
won’t cover us cause you know me
i could not give up a fight.

fifth 4th.

deeps breaths.
what a day!

today, we had a bridal shower for my wonderful friend, emily :) it was such a lovely time. all the hard work and planning was well worth the fun we had this afternoon!

a few minutes ago… i submitted my application for school. not in portland. or eugene.
right here at home.

it’s funny how some things in life come full circle.
and how… sometimes, you have to see and go through a lot of things before realizing that so much of what you were looking for was right there in front of you — all along.

… i’m so excited to go back to school :) i’ve had my time. i’m ready.

i think, what  i am most excited for, is being able to hang out in my favorite coffee shops for hours and hours, in the town i love (and missed!) so much — doing homework :)

to starting again. cheers.

i wish…

that i could just sit at a huge table with all the people in the whole wide world that i love and have a long, long conversation over coffee.

one of those nights.
i have some thoughts that, in a few days, will hopefully be cohesive enough for me to write down. i need to give them some time, though.

hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.
