in him i am thankful

life is crucial and beautiful today.

i am thankful for family, and friends, and the single life. i'm thankful for my brother turning eleven today and an over abundance of cake, even though it sickens me to think upon the subject. i am thankful for hope, the hope that spring will be here soon. (snow will just not do.) i am thankful for a gracious savior that cares far beyond what i could imagine.

i am thankful most of all for a short life. one that we can make our own and appreciate every last bit of it. for you see, if life were longer it would be a much harder task.

thankful heart.

that 'f' in my post title doesn't stand for anything bad if that's what you were thinking. it stands for 'francesca'.

she turns fifteen today. my petite sœur, fifteen years old. (she'll totally kick butt this year.)

joyeux anniversaire to her.

i love.
i love.
i love.

i wish leviticus was as easy to read as the hunger games.

you can feel it when you step out the door. there's still a cold chill, but spring has arrived.

i braid my hair,
when the weathers nice.

(that was slightly romantic, i'm about to ruin the mood though.)

i spent my day reading. i don't read, i never read. it's so foreign to me. i just look at the pictures.
i picked up the 'mockingjay' from the library at 12:21pm today. i finished it at 6:58pm. hooked. i feel like such a dork. is there some sort of secret club i can be in? (note post title)
we are attempting three birthdays this week. maybe if i spent the majority of my time preparing for the over abundance of cake and gift wrapping instead of reading myself to death, i might be ready. but what's the fun in being birthday ready? midnight pinterest parties totally rock my world as of late.

happy mid-week.

but i bet your heart just skipped a beat.

i photographed her wedding veil line today.

that is all for now.

bonne week-end.

you can feel it in the air

are you drunk?

i barely got through the day.
but honestly, the best part was the end.

i was laying on the lawn at the college tonight, saying my thank yous quietly in my head. there was something about being able to smell spring in the air that made me uncontrollably happy. i was then informed by the presence of two young gentleman of which i never knew. "are you drunk?" one of them asked me. "no, just stargazing."


i just want

i just want to make nice things and have a nice husband and be happy.

Life is a bit absurd & feels too difficult. We're alive. That's all we really need to know.
