Random thoughts for you to read

{001} I need somewhere to put notes and quotes.
{002} I had a crying session today, just trying to sort through things in my life.
{003} I randomly wanted some hot chocolate so I homemade some using this recipe. It's good.
{004} I realize that this is the second photo-less post in a row, but I just can't help myself.
{005} I am going to be assisting a photographer for photo shoots in the near future(!!!!).
{006} I read over 130 pages of my book today. And I don't even like it that much.
{007} I did my hair in an upside down French braid with a bun at the top of my head today. And I went to work like that.
{008} I actually wore corduroy pants for the first time yesterday. Whaaat?
{009} I am crazy excited for the new "Les Miserables" movie coming out on Christmas Day.
{010} I played Ludovico Einaudi on the piano today. And it felt fantastic.
{011} I took a nap outside on a fold-out chair today. My mom says I can sleep anywhere like my dad. I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing...
{012} I can't get over how amazing Owl City lyrics are. I am constantly amazed by them, even the ones I've heard dozens of times over.
{013} I almost danced to the Wiggles video that was being played at work the other day. Am I getting younger?
{014} I sometimes get bits of instrumentals songs in my head and I can't rest until I've heard it or played it on the piano. When I do, I feel like it's the best song in the world at that moment.
{015} I had one of my siblings leave home for the first (big chunk of) time yesterday. This year better skadoodle!
{016} I am nineteen years old and I still sleep with a blanket (two, to be exact). Don't judge.
{017} I have been in love with Jesus more and more lately. Just look for verses in the Bible to write on notecards for yourself or someone else, and it will make your love for him deepen. :)
{018} I have been wanting to put together some care packages for people, and writing down things to put inside. Ooh la la!
{019} I stay up way too late than is good for me, and then wonder why I'm so tired in the afternoon. I think my mind is screwed up or something.
{020} I have decided that ths post is long enough and that I need to go to bed. Th-th-th-that's all folks!

small beauty

the small things. a pause in time. a moment suspended in the click of a camera shutter. a frozen second from a few weeks ago that now appear in this humble corner of the internet. an attempt at capturing small beauty.


The youngest two

 This is Lydia

She's a drama queen 

She's also gorgeous 

And she's five

This is Calvin. He is seven.

They're my siblings

And they're pretty cute together.
