I haven't written too much lately, but that doesn't mean that nothing is happening, although life does seem to be kind of slow right now. I am trying to find a job for the summer, but already more than half the summer seems to be gone.

Summer has had it adventures and highlights and also lows, so I thought I would share a few of them with you and because everyone loves pictures, I will share some pictures that go along with some of my favorite moments of this summer so far. ;)

The first highlight of my summer was going home for a month to visit my sisters and parents. The low about going home was getting my Wisdom-teeth pulled (of which you shall have no pleasure in seeing the pictures of my chipmunk face because I am not going to share that with you. Muwahahahaha!)

But there were several highs to my visit. One sister graduated high school and another sister I got to watch at her violin recital. I was able to visit with several friends, read several good and relaxing books, go to the library, revisit my old friends from Southbound, and breath fresh country air. Other special moments at home include....

hiking at hanging rock with the family and these two love birds...
making this delicious "Ugly Apple Cake" with a friend...
getting engaged.... (ahem!.....jk!)...

and this lovely storm.

The next highlight of the summer was volunteering at The Women's Gospel Coalition Conference in Indiana with three of my siblings and my mom.

it was a busy weekend, but....

I was able to meet this special friend who before I only new from the blogging world.

From there I drove back to Minneapolis with my sister, her boyfriend, and another friend. It was a crazy ride with much laughter and amusing stories told. Apparently I become a little weirder than I already am by 2 or 3 in the morning (how that's possible I don't know), but in my defense I was just trying to keep the drivers awake. We also came across....

pretty sunsets that made my heart dance with the windmills.

Getting back to Minnesota has been great. Seeing friends at church, making random and impulsive bookstore runs because we love books so much, drinking coffee, applying for jobs, having summer parties, watching Jane Austin movies, and sometimes....

going swing dancing.

The summer isn't over yet and I know I will experience more highs and lows and there are more adventures to be had before school starts back up again. So for now I say adios!


  1. Sounds like a pretty nice summer! Yay, you got to swing dance!

Winnie the Pooh

I have a confession. Ok, not really a confession because just about everyone who actually knows me knows it and I am not ashamed of it, but....

I have an obsession, of sorts, with Winnie the Pooh! Yes, go ahead and laugh, but seriously, I kind of like him a lot (ok, not as much as Cowboys, but that is a different story).

So my car has a little Winnie the Pooh hanging on the mirror and he basically is my friend that accompanies me on all my road trips and road adventures of getting lost (happens a lot).

So, whether you like it or not this post is Winnie the Pooh quotes. I probably just scared away half my readers, but you know if you can't put up with my Winnie the Pooh obsession for just one day than that is really just too bad. Be thankful I did not decide to do a Seven Brides for Seven Brothers post instead. I would understand if you left me after that. That would be the testing of whether we are true friends or not, but this time I am just sticking with Winnie the Pooh. ;)

So …

A Peek Into Our Life

Sometimes life looks a little bit like this.

I crochet while he reads.

Quiet mornings where we can sit close.

The Lonesome, the Loner, and the Lone Person

The lonesome person, the loner, and the lone person; they sound a bit alike, but they're all a little different.

The lonesome person. I see them on the street walking past or sitting quietly watching passer-bys. They may not even be sitting alone, but they're still a lonesome person. I see it in the eyes. They're sad. They live in a different world. Maybe a world they used to know, or a world they've always wished for and never had, but they're lonesome and can't get out of it. They live by themselves even though they may be surrounded by people. Maybe they plug their ears with music to block out the noise in their own confused head. But their lonesome and they don't want to tell you. They do and they don't chose this life. Its not that they like being lonesome, but they just are. Maybe they've lived to long in bitterness and hate. Or maybe it was a life of pain and hurt, so they run from it all and hide within. Maybe their lost and can't find …
