Let's just skip the part where I grovel about not blogging and try to explain why I haven't. That is getting old, is it not? ;)
I can sum up in three words: Life. Get's. Busy.
Moving on quickly!
Let's just head in with a life dump, shall I?
It's been a really fast year so far. Like, here we are at July (What the freak?) and I feel like I can't catch up with myself!
February brought Disneyland in all it's wild, hectic glory.
March was just March. Though there were a few lovely walks in March. Complete with gorgeous, swampy meadows.
April brought my brother's wedding and a visit with my sister and her freakin' adorable family.
(The only picture I took on my phone! #woops)
(She just had her baby 2 weeks before they came out!)
May brought a lot of work, (Mother's day at a flower shop...) and more meadow-y walks.
(Because I will never not love dandelion fuzz.
It's basically magic on a stem. :)
Then June hit with some days at the beach, wedding craziness at the shop and finally a visit to see my friend.
My best friend and her husband had their first baby this June and I'm the Godmother. It was a blast going out for a week and visiting, holding that baby as much as I possibly could, and just being there.
She sleeps like a tiny boxer and it makes me so happy.
And she's got so much hair!
Paint night. (I mad dis. #beautyandthebeast)
We did some shooting.
And took a beautiful evening walk.
Everything was so golden.
And this series of pictures are my favs. :)
That brings us to the 4th of July, which was very pleasant and involved a trip to Barns and Noble, Hobby Lobby, and a very nice BBQ.
Other than that, I've been juggling work, hobbies and other trivial things like doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom and watching fun TV shows.
Right now I feel like I have so many things I want to do and just don't have time for. I'm plugging away at trying to learn guitar, and though it's coming along, it's definitely tedious.
I want to write and draw and make music. I want to be outside and just sit by the water and listen to the waves and the birds. I want to do more self defense things and go on hikes. I want to cook new dishes and try my hand and making pasta from scratch. I want to learn more about guns and shooting. I want to learn about cars: How they work and how to fix/understand mine.
I want to spend more time with God and less time worrying about things I don't really have any control over.
This year I'm really antsy to have my own home, to create a place that's mine, to have a family and start that part of my life. And that's something that I have to leave to God and His timing.
And it's really hard.
Anyway, I did manage to upload another song to my channel. #ItShouldHaveBeenInJune.
I was all set to post it in June and time got away from me and I failed on that one! Lol. But it's finally up and I'm even hoping to have another video up this month as well.
Let me know what you think and maybe leave me some suggestions if you have any songs you think I should sing. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
