Exploring Different Shapes

I have decided to let today take whatever shape it desires. Lately I have been exhausting myself by spending energy on things I really can’t control. This photo, in it’s own little way, encouraged me to just let things be. For some reason I love how the bubble changes the way the mountain looks.

When life surprises us with ups & downs I feel it can make what we thought we understood  suddenly appear very confusing. I’m allowing myself some time to reevaluate the way I perceive things. Hopefully that will be the key to seeing mistakes as moments of growth & opportunities to accrue wisdom.

Todays quote helps me realize how incredibly blessed my life is. Despite all the oddly shaped outcomes I’m still so grateful. Cheers to a fresh new week.

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; But remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -Epicurus Greek philosopher (341 BC – 270 BC)

In My Hands

After the wind howled all day & night yesterday it finally began to rain —  it was a relief hearing heavy drops patter against my windows instead of the wind shaking them. I’m not a huge fan of the wind when I’m alone.

It’s quiet in our house today but I still can’t stop playing this (click text). Roman has a new favorite thing: mauling my head/attempting to eat my hair. I just don’t really care enough today to make him stop. All I ask is that my eyeballs stay intact.

When I saw this little piece of heaven on Pinterest something wonderful happened: My Boxcar Children days flashed right before my eyes. They were my favorite books when I was wee and I always dreamed of being a ‘boxcar-child’. The thought of living off of berries, cream, and stale bread from the local bakery was just perfect to me. It’s amazing how our idea of “perfect” changes as we grow. I’ve always had a special place for exploring, especially in the mountains (The Hatchet was also a favorite of mine)

Who wants to meet me there?

I hope you’re having a delicious Sunday & enjoying the first day of April. There’s just something about a new month that makes me feel like I’ve got the whole world in my hands. I hope you feel the same way, it’s pretty empowering.

All my love, Bee

Ps. We didn’t win the lottery. What the hell dude I thought the chances were good?..

Didn’t feel a drop

Today I’d like to sit beneath an umbrella and kiss until the rain stops; Then we can go inside & laugh about how we didn’t feel a drop. How special is it to have someone to do such silly things with and not have it feel silly at all.

I love you Andy. I can’t wait for you to come home.

All my love, Honey 

Never felt so beautiful

After the sun discontinued it’s lovely light supply through our windows I decided to take a step outside. I stood on my porch barefoot with a naked face & a baggy t-shirt on. At that moment I realized I couldn’t recall the last time I felt so beautiful; Yet I had nothing to do with the beauty I was experiencing. Logan sunsets will do that to you.

I Quite Like It

As some of you may know, I’ve been lacking a bit in the blogging department. Normally, I would have done my best to create an inspiring, uplifting, earthshaking post about today, the first day of Spring. But if today were even close to normal I would also be doing what I do every year on the first day of Spring: Enjoying the sunshine with a cold beverage in one hand and more guncles in reach for the other then you can even imagine.

Fortunately this little blog has connected me with some pretty incredible people, Jani being one of them. She honestly makes me laugh my ass off on a regular basis while providing me with the most interesting stuff to think about (good articles, facts, etc.) She wrote this post about the first day of Spring and after reading it I felt like all my weird inner blogger-guilt went away. I didn’t feel so bad about not writing one myself because hers said everything I would tried to put in mine and some. Minus the rambling of course, good lord. Anywho, pop over and read her blog, it’s awesome.

I hope you’re all having a fabulous week so far and that it will only continue to get better. I also hope you’re all shining your light like it ain’t never been seen before. Yes, I did just say that. Yes, I am from Utah. Oh my hell. That’s my que.

All my love, Bee

Flux, n.

The natural state. Our moods change. Our lives change. Our feelings for each other change. Our bearings change. The song changes. The air changes. The temperature of the shower changes.

Accept this. We must accept this. 

Authentic Self

I threw on a big ole’ sweater, leggings, cheetah socks and Lita’s – I was ready for school. Class was going great & I was learning a ton. I’m all about participating in class, but I was interrupted mid-sentence by my Professor. He looked at my feet as he tilted his head – ‘HOW do you walk in those things?’ he said. ‘Well..” I said, ‘I just do.‘ (Bravo on the reply, dumbass.)

Before I knew it the entire class was staring my shoes down. If I knew how to I’m sure I would have felt really awkward. I’m not sure if they were loving, hating, judging, or trying to understand. Either way, I wasn’t quite sure how to react. In a last attempt to explain I said ‘Well, they are boots, so you have ankle support….’  They still didn’t get it.

‘Those are not boots! Those are Pee Wee Herman shoes!” Before I knew it Professor LaPlante jumped onto his desk & danced across it on his toes. Aaaand it was hilarious. Matthew LaPlante is an official badass, if you weren’t already aware.

I may not know how to write flawlessly in AP Style but I can probably run faster then some people in my Litas. It won’t take me anywhere in life other then the front of a line at the mall, but if I’m going to fail I’m going to do it in style with a huge ass grin on my face. It feels good to be different when society pushes us all to be the same.

Cheers to stepping out in nothing but my authentic self today. Logan, meet Lita – Lita, meet Logan. We will meet again.

XOXO B.
