"the sun is shining, this road keeps on winding..."

Greetings friends and foes.

Life in these parts has been pretty slow. Slow and steady. It wins the race I hear. Nothing much new to report--the floor of my room is still a disaster, I'm still wearing skirts, and I'm still committed to being upbeat in this blog.

To be honest however, I had a good cry* about a week ago. Sometimes life isn't easy, you know? I try to remember it's why we're here; we wouldn't have had to come to Earth if it weren't going to be hard. I had day where I let the "hard" get the best of me -- Mom, in all her infinite wisdom reminded me that every one wants to be me. Where that may not be 100 percent truth, it was a sweet thing to say.

Slow and steady isn't so bad. Now I shall prove it to you. I'm hoping your slow and steady can look this good! I haven't posted photos in a LONG time and I think I'm due. Try not to want to be me too much. HA! (But really don't -- I want to be you on any other given day.) As much as I loathe uploading photos to Blogger, I'll fill yall in on what I've been up to this summer via lens capture.

Yay! I checked this morning and saw no new post and I was sad. I love your picture posts although I already stalk you through facebook so I've seen most of these. hah!

I need to update mine. I've been throwing a few around in my head but nothing has materialized yet. And yeah, I've had a few good crys lately too, which doesn't make much sense b/c I'm getting married soon. But really, being engaged isn't all its cracked up to be. I should have eloped! :)

I'm impressed that you're still wearing skirts! I couldn't do it. I can barely wear something other than jeans.

I would try to share some uplifting words, but I'm struggling to find the positive myself. Although I will say that everyone does, in fact, want to be you!!
