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.

oh, heeey, summer. nice to see you :)
i’ve realized lately that my life is essentially comprised of:
- making coffee for folks.
- drinking tea.
- taking photos of flowers and plants.
i can’t really complain.
this is my second summer with my camera… excited, hopeful and optimistic about creating some wonderful things.

another rainy day.
but it was a good day!
i meant to take lots of pictures while out and about today… but my camera died after leaving the house.
the fact that it’s june is just amazing to me. we’re halfway through 2011… it doesn’t seem right.
the last week and a half has felt like an eternity: i’ve been post-op from wisdom teeth surgery. honestly, it’s been really awful. i’ve never taken so much medication in my life! not a fan. but, the pain is (very) slowly but surely going away :)
in other news… i’m making peace with uncertainty. striving for contentment. really being present.
it’s day to day… but… i think it’s going well.
i wore heels today.
i think it was a good choice.
so much on my mind.
“island in the sun” came on the radio today…
i always forget how lovely it is.
we’ll never feel bad anymore.

we braved the wind. the rain. the shivers. and it was worth it.
yesterday, i got to see jenny & jonny, bright eyes, and death cab for cutie.
seeing bands perform songs in front of you… ones that are so incredibly close to your heart is a really beautiful and exhilarating experience.
i named this blog after my favorite death cab song, “a movie script ending.”
they performed it :)
their finale was \”transatlanticism\”
music is love. it’s everything.

there’s nothing quite like a grueling hike to the top of the world to put me back in my place.
it sometimes feels good to feel so small… to take some deep breaths and just quietly admire what is around me.
i’ve missed it here.
i’m so blessed to call this amazing place my home.
– tomorrow: a much-anticipated day off. & beautiful weather is afoot.
– i’m also working on getting a diana +. so excited… so so excited.
– i suck at making muffins… but i’m working on it. work has definitely challenged my baking skills :) but i learn something new with each recipe. it’s fantastic.
– my name is danielle. and i’m addicted to house plants.
i haven’t purchased any… yet. but… i can just feel a “house plant field day” coming on… i cannot wait.
well, it’s closing time at the shop. gotta run. happy almost weekend, friends :)
