And the Sky was a Thousand Colors

(Thanks Bri)

Bri slept over again...except this time...we hardly slept. We stayed up all night long...blogging, listening to music....then I looked out the window, and the sky had changed from a dark velvet to a cloudy, almost violet, grey. The sun was rising :)

Brianna took most of the photos...while I watched the sky change to Orange and Pink and Light blue in between.

As I walked out my bedroom door, Bri asked

"won't your mom get mad?!"
I replied

"haha...I dont know...probably"

It was a chance I was willing to take

I tip-toed out the front door and quietly ran down to the sidewalk. I sat down on the edge of the sidewalk and watched the sky. I quitely sang Moon River to myself.

I ran back upstairs and into my bedroom. I jumped beneath the covers and brianna found my "things to get lost to" playlist.

Drifted off to sleep at 6 am to the beautiful melody of a lullabye...and the image of the sunrise still in my mind

Leaning now into the breeze

Watching life pass by from the window of your car...
Have you ever wondered if you could suddenly run out of time?
It all goes by too fast
I really wish I couldn't miss a second
I think knowing this...only makes life more special

Alone with my runny nose and tired eyes

My bedside table
A lovely thing to have beside me while I spend hours coughing and sniffing.
I'll be ok soon enough...
I want to soak up the summer sun as soon as possible
Ice cream, and lemonade...

Swing Music and Perfume

The young girl semi skipped around her room as she got ready. She felt too happy in her brand new dress that she saved up for...all her money.

Frank Sinatra was singing to her straight from her old stereo, she sang along as she put on some blush.

She sprayed on some of her Harajuku Lovers perfume and put on some her her favorite Hello Kitty lip gloss.

She put on her heart neckalace that she adored
and She put her keys into her vintage-looking purse she got from Kohl's for 7 dollars.

she took one last look in the mirror and walked out the door.

Bittersweet Summer

Everyone is posting delightful posts on summer and how it's lemonade and ice cream will bring smiles.

Well, I'll be different, and speak of how I'll miss everything I've been through this year, is that all right?

So much has happened, so many new faces and places I never want to many worlds inside of my heart I never knew existed, some sunny and beautiful, some dark and tragic.

All the poeple, who have somehow made a difference in my life by just being in it...even if they played a seemingly small part.

I'll miss precious him...who makes tiny butterflies flutter in my stomach...who makes me feel happy and sad all at once.

But I guess, for the next two months or so...I can always enjoy lemonade and ice cream.

My Favorite Things

These are a few of my favorite things.
The little bits that make me happy in between the big parts of life.
The simple, pretty things.
Do you have those things? That at any moment, you just feel you must take a picture, because they look sooo pretty and they make you feel happy? Thos timy things...
Last night...I danced, and danced forever. I spent a good amount of time with Him. We kept on "running into" eachother. At one point, he put his arm around me for a photo. I got this feeling, like everything was just perfect. Like in the movies...when the princess finds the prince. If only He knew...
At one point, the song Shake It came on. And we danced right by eachother and sang along. It was Magical.

Im just so happy. I think it was all a dream...

Have you ever just wondered about life...all the small things?
