Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Christmas seems to have snuck up on me. The time passed by so quickly, I feel as if it barely happened.
I didn't do half of the things I had hoped to do before Christmas. That's the bittersweet thing about time I guess. You'll never get to experience an exact moment or time again, no matter how much you want to. Cherish every moment because it will be gone just like that. Take pictures. Write your thoughts down in a journal. Tell your loved ones how much YOU love them and how much they mean to you. Remember all the good times. Smile!
The New Year is a perfect time to make a Bucket List (if you haven't already). Or a list of things you aspire to do in the next year. I've already made a Bucket List, but I think that I am going to make a Do All This Within the Next Year List. 
I wish you all the best and I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Here are some "holiday associated" pictures that I've taken during the month of Fabulous December.
~Enjoy!~

Here is my family's Great Gingerbread house. The best one we have EVER made together.
FYI: Those are "melting" snowmen on the sides of the house. :) Hence why they're red.

The sun looked so beautiful shining on the glittering morning frost that I just had to take a picture.

Frost encrusted leaf. Simple but pretty.

This was an amazing spiderweb that clung to our porch one morning. Awesome I know.

Need I say anything more?


~Merry Christmas~
and
~Happy Holidays!~

I Am From Pigtails and Climbing Trees


*This is poem I wrote about a year ago for a creative writing class. I just wanted to share it with you guys.*

               I am from pigtails and rainbow Pushpops
                  From running barefoot, Pocahontas and climbing trees

       I'm from fairies, dragons and magic,
  From where anything is possible  

I am from rainy pumpkin patch trips and muddy jeans
From fall leaves whirling through the cool Autumn air

I am from enchiladas, the greatest mashed potatoes and
homemade bread straight from the oven

From wanting to be like those other girls,
to wanting individuality

I am from wonderful days at the beach with sand in my shorts
and "Do we have to leave now?"

I'm from hot summer days drinking iced tea
and spending the warm evenings looking up at the stars

I am from a world of books and
staying up 'til 2am to finish the exciting chapter

From a school dance with nervousness, a shimmery dress, teary eyes,
and some nearly comfortable heels

I am from a Vampire Weekend concert and
autographed t-shirts

From long car rides with Mom, which created
just as long mother-daughter conversations

I am from photography, where I can freeze
moments in time forever, looking closely at all the little details

Where I come from, moments deserve to be 
cherished and savored

Where moments mean 
~everything~
