Man I have not blogged in quite a while. I have been very busy enjoying life. Its a full time thing. he he. I was in the San Juan Islands all last week, crewing on a 56 foot yacht. It was an amazing, beautiful, fun filled time. This week I am with my family vacationing, doing some school shopping, and not at a family reunion! I am so blessed. and later today a special someone is coming to hangout with me! I am very excited! Here are some other things I am excited about:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

Im about to be 20--(wow I feel old)--I dont feel this way yet--and in 20 years I still dont want to feel this way. God help me to live your life. To take risks, to love more, give more, and care more.

I love all things artsy. I love the feel of a textured, heavy weight, printed paper. I love to sew, craft, mix and match, create and dream. I spend my mornings analyzing design and fashion blogs. Grabbing pictures I love, and hurrying over ones that just dont work.--it is simply inspiring, thought provoking and fun for me. Here are some of the fashions, designs, and things I enjoy.

Somedays all is perfect. Things fit together like pieces of a puzzle. Then the next day I wonder, I over think, I worry. How will I ever know for 100% sure? Will I be happy doing that? Will I be happy being this? Or should I fall for that? Is there really something not right? Or aM I just over thinking? Is life really as easy as it seems to be--or am I getting tricked. deceived. confused. Do I have too much time of doing nothing--that my rain starts over analyzing everything? Am I wanting a problem to have to deal with? Who knows. God knows. SO please God--tell me.
