AND ON THE WAY HOME:
There we are :) this was my yesterday! I’m so happy with my life, so incredibly happy. This guy does so much for me, I am truly blessed:)
Also got to see my boys and Rachael. They’re getting so big I feel like I’m missing out sometimes, but when I do see them it’s so precious.
I want to live here
I am so incredibly blessed and thankful for everything in my life. I think about it everyday and I don’t know what else to do to show it to everyone in my life. I have the best friends and family who love me and are always there.
My boyfriend is absolutely everything I could ever want in a man. (Why aren’t they called manfriends anyways?) He’s constantly putting me first in every situation, even if I sometimes don’t deserve it. He’s caring and compassionate and knows the right thing to do in every situation. I look forward to seeing him everyday and am so excited for my future with him. I get butterfly’s when I’m about to see him still, and my heart is so full of love I could burst into high pitched awkwardness at any time. I FEEL pretty and happy with him.
You know all the cheesy sayings and poems and quotes on tumblr and Pinterest? Totally me. I laugh and smile and think of how happy I really, truly am.
You know you have a good guy when he’ll rub your neck/hands/back/feet even after a long day of his own. (Pick wisely tho, more than one rub down of a body part usually doesn’t happen haha).
With that, I hope you have something to be thankful for. Something to wake up and look forward to, and to strive for in the future. Everyone deserves this kind of feeling. And once you have it, don’t let it go.
I’m stuck between wanting to shelter and hide my [future] children from the awful things that are happening in this world, and educating them so they can go out there and change it for the better.
I start out every Spring thinking and hoping and planning out my life for the upcoming Summer. For some reason I feel like I have to have a picture perfect time or it’s not going to be good. In my head the perfect summer is probably sort of like a movie; I have to spend time with ALL of my friends, the majority of it with my man, be at the lake, go to WEfest/ribfest/Red River Valley Fair/parades/street dances/lake day, spend ample amounts of time with my family and cousins, go down the river, hit up the river once or twice….
You can kind of see how all of this could never happen, since I also work full time and have a part-time job. Usually towards the end of the summer I start reminiscing about all the things I’ve checked off this impossible list, & conjure up plans to tick the rest off.
Basically, I have to shut the fuck up. I need to STOP the planning and being so uptight. I used to be way worse, but I am striving to be better. Sometimes I just think about all the things I’m missing out on at once and that’s when I get super upset.
I just got done with a super fabulous 4-day vacation, half of which I spent with my awesome friends at the lake and the other half I spent with my man:) (This was a some-what-of-a-planned thing, but we [John and I] needed some time together, and we both needed time requested off from work. So I guess some of the planning wasn’t all bad!)
Here we are at the lake! Basically played yard games and floating beer-pong all day. Lake by day, bar by night.
Sunday we hit up Zorbaz and made it back just in time for me to absolutely crash from the crazy weekend. Monday we wandered around Fargo and found the cutest little hole-in-the-wall restaurant, went to the park and READ, (yep, as in a book.. more on that later!) and later went to a movie in the park. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. A little cliche but I wouldn’t have changed it for the world.
Tuesday was probably the most beautiful day yet. It wasn’t too hot, not windy, no rain. We went to Detroit Lakes for the day and sat on the beach, went for a swim, got some nachos and then went back to the beach. I wished it never would have had to end!!
John hunted down a lady to take this picture because I got crabby when he didn’t want to take one. (My phone has 2,000+ pictures and will not take anymore, so everyones’ phone is my personal camera haha)The little girl that was with the mom was like “She doesn’t know how to use that!” haha! I think she did alright:)
Moral of my story, take life as it comes, and definitely not too seriously. Opportunities will come and go, just be prepared to be spontaneous at all times! These are the things that will be the BEST memories, trust me!
