it's been two

time flies, it does.
 but then again when people ask me if i feel like it's been two years i feel like i don't remember life not being married. 
but it just gets sweeter with time. 

happy anniversary to you husband. 
i love you, i do.

it's been a while

and when i say a while, i mean three weeks. and sadly, it's taken a lot of silly little encouragement from myself to actually get back into posting. not because i don't enjoy it, because i do. but my list of things i've forgotten to document have began to overwhelm me. i'm being completely silly but i'm jumping back in, full force. 

so for tomorrow i'll give a very picturesque update of our life as of lately. the last three weeks have consisted of craziness, real craziness. summertime is treating us well over here and it's barely june. we just pulled in last night after a short trip to husbands other true love: lake powell and it was a treat. this photo really doesn't do justice of how beautiful it was neither does this photo make being back in the "grind" much easier. so for now long live summertime. because what's not to love?

a glimpse

just a couple photos from our adventure. 
(still needing to sort through the 457 i took, but sorting emails for work and laundry at home come first)

i believe that get aways are a must for healthy living, at least for my personal sake. 
i come back energized yet exhausted. 
overwhelmed yet ready to take on the world. 
i love the energy of nyc, it always gives me the desire to do more.
as if i don't have enough on my plate. 
that's another post in itself. 

but i do have to say that seeing the mr.was a happy reunion. 
you may laugh, but it was the longest we've spent apart in over two years. 

since being married we've only spent one night at a time apart.
so i anxiously waited for him to return from his get.a.way. to LP
it was fireworks all over again, 
but i'll spare you the details. 

happy tuesday, short weeks are always a delight.

"i'm the king of new york"

it doesn't matter how many times i've been to the big apple, i always come back amazed
i'll share more thoughts later with you, a time where i am not so completely exhausted.
i can't recall a time in my life where my feet hurt worse, i really can't.
funny stories to tell and memories to relive over and over again.

but for now we are at the jfk airport, waiting for our flight to board
while downloading newsies the movie on the computer.
because we were lucky duckies and won lottery tickets for newsies broadway and now we are obsessed to say the least.

i'm dreaming of it right now and can't stop singing the tunes out loud
(and we may or may have not been dancing on the streets of nyc ever since) 
which is a good thing considering i have a 5.5 hour flight ahead with the sissy club.

two things that have nothing to do with another but i'll tell you anyways

oh my heck! 
this week is slipping out of my hands. 
i don't know where the time has gone from yesterday morning until now and i feel as though i'm going to find myself in a melt down in a few hours. 

i have only a bajillion things to get done before my sissy club and i leave for a new york adventure with our mama. 
i get to go to new york to see my besties with besties, what could be better?
it's come so quickly, and now if i could only grant myself an extra five hours before midnight this could all go smooth. 
so i have no time, i feel like the bunny in alice in wonderland. isn't' it the bunny in that movie? 
i'm late, I'm late for a very important date, no time to waste...

so i'm off to get a pile of to dos done before i go, which i can already tell is not going to happen. 

in the meantime check out this event that i helped put together for the weekend. i know, lame i won't be there but you should most definitely go if you are around. these gals are amaze and i'm so happy to be part of something so great, it's going to be funnnn i'm telling you really fun. so go for me and let me knowhow it all goes. you will not regret it so go spread some shine. 

next time i'm on here i'll be in the city!

rain day

rainy days are secretly a favorite of mine. it's an excuse to be a little lazy and cozy up in the house. perhaps pop a favorite flick in, or head to the theaters for a new show. oversized sweaters and comfy blankets. it doesn't hurt that i got to work from home today and that the husband doesn't' have school. yay for friday and for the rain. the smell of the rain, as i've said before is my absolute favorite. 

happy friday.

a little long thought

life's happiness can easily be altered by the world around us.
you may feel as i do sometimes, 
living with racing thoughts flourishing your mind of things you must accomplish and become.

i'm grateful for the world we live in today
 it's a modern marvel that we live with such technology developments and continuing discoveries.
rapid forms of communication connect us with loved ones and new acquaintances.
those dreams you had of traveling afar become a reality.
answers to nearly any question are given, making life simple in one way or another.
creative outlets provide ideas for your home, a party, your hair, clothing, children, church, the list goes on.
each day and every day.

it's a blessing, yet there is an opposing downside.
we expect people to answer phone calls immeadetly, 
respond to texts and email in the timeliest manner, 
and give no excuse to being late due to taking a wrong turn.

everything we create has an expected level of creativity and originality.
we have the answers at our fingertips, literally.
becoming more concerned about what is going on in others lives
  (those you may not even know) 
then the life you call your own
leaving thoughts of comparisons and sometimes criticism.

it can be overwhelming to think you aren't:
creative enough nor do you dress the part, 
your meals aren't magazine cover worthy
your body doesn't look ready for summer,
and you don't have time to do the two hours worth of exercise you just discovered.
your home doesn't smell like fresh laundry,
your fridge is stocked with foods less then worthy of healthy
family night does not consist of cut outs and brownies
nor does your sunday lesson have a tablecloth and flowers.

although all of these would be nice,
it's not a reality for us to become everything we merely see around us.
there is only so much that can be said with out actually being done.
and what you do, is who you become. 

lucky for us, we live in a time where chasing after your dreams,
and aspiring to what you ultimately want to become is accepted. 
the options are endless, there are not limitations. 
and even with the wild obsessions and crazy expectations
of daily life around us:

today you are you.
and no one alive is youer then you.

life according to the iphone

 i have attempted to take more photos with our trusty camera, but nothing is more convenient nor trusty as yours truly the iPhone. 

so here you have it the iPhone dump of our life in pictures. now if only they could shrink my not so small canon to be the size of the iPhone, all matters would be reconciled. that'll be the day i tell you.
