May days

This is going to be one of those typical 'lately' posts. To bring me back to reality from my dreaming world where I think up poetry and cloudy pep talk blog posts (My adding 'cloudy' there doesn't mean you shouldn't take them any less seriously. OK?). And to let you know- well, about small inconsequential things that fill in the spaces between the consequential things during my average day. Which doesn't mean I won't mention anything consequential...okay, I'm rambling. But those who know me well know that I'm great at that. 
I'll try and refrain from being corny, cheesy, or cliché. (But c'mon. Everybody loves cliché)  


+ walking around the house in socks (Winter is fast approaching)
+ watching old movies (Pretty Woman; a new favourite of mine)
+ cooking with my dad, now and then (I only recently found out. He knows how to cook? And pretty well, too?)
+ loving going to my youth group
+ appreciating hot tea and this good book I'm reading, 'The Forever Girl', by Alexander McCall 
+ practicing my interior designer skills in my room
+ beach trips

+ loving my friend's blog, 'For me to live is Christ and to die, is gain' (People. She writes so beautifully)
+ and my other friend's blog, 'silent fleeting moments' (Anine, your talent is just...wow)
+ listening to Ben Howard, OneRepublic, and Coldplay ('A Sky Full of Stars' by Coldplay is magical)
+ realizing that there is only one reason why I'm living and why I want to be alive. God. He carries me through all storms, He never leaves me to fend for myself and when I have nothing, I have everything, because I have Him
+ starting a drawing journal as a project in my art class (This is right up my street, guys)
+ beautiful skies

+ finding fresh joy in photography and in my fluffy, cozy, pullover, electric blue jersey (Really electric)

+ going for my first ever facial (If you've ever been for a facial...did you enjoy it?)
+ adoring my little brother's facial expressions and willingness to take selfies (Oh. And my other pullover knit jersey, as displayed in the following photo)

+ loving you for having read all this
