Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!
Photos to come later but I’m about to crash and I was only staying up later to keep my mom company until my dad and sister get home but 48 Dashboard pages later she’s still out on the couch by herself. Time to cuddle.

havent-got-a-prayer: setsailrachel: This year has been crazy… A rollercoaster of emotion, a year of loss, pain, regret, triumph, love, courage, and definatly a year full of life lessons. There have been struggles with families, losses of close friends, sour relationships, and everything in between. I am so greatful to be where I am at this point in my life. I may not have everything I want but I...
looking over my shoulder.
havent-got-a-prayer: If you had asked me one year ago where my life would be now, I wouldn’t have had much to say. I probably would have told you to fuck off, and gone right back to my empty existence. I would never in my wildest dreams have predicted that I would be in the spot that I am in today. I am still broken, but I am slowly gathering the fragments back together. I am still confused,...

How to quit a job, break up with a man and confront a friend without ruining the friendship. 4. When to try harder and when to walk away. 5. How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next. 6. The names of: the secretary...
Whatever you’re celebrating, I hope it rocks. xoxo
Can't Leave Soon Enough....
Not only did I not portion out enough wine to enjoy a glass my last night before heading home for festivities, I also did not leave myself enough toilet paper. Oops.
I’m so tired. I still haven’t packed. I did, however, clean my shower, which is a pretty big deal. In other housekeeping-before-I-go-away news, there’s a several(?) month old acorn squash in my cupboard I’m scared to go near.

elizabethanne: I hate it. I switch my outfit at least 3 times before leaving my house on a daily basis - how am I supposed to pack for my indecisive self? Just got off the phone w/ my mama, telling her I would be home tomorrow, not tonight, because it would be too late by the time I got packed and showered to make the drive. I overpack for weekends back at my parents when I have no plans to...

I live near a post office, and those big mailboxes are right in front of my building. I know, from experience, that they are not marked “Local” or “Out-of-Town,” though I don’t recall if either of them is marked with anything (pretty sure they’re not). So I pull up in front of my place this evening and see two people walking across. The area where I live is...
Good Hair Day
I was at my parents’ house this weekend and I took a photo of my sister and myself to hang on my fridge because, as I told my mom, “My hair looks good here!” (Obvi not always a given that my hair will cooperate.) Today didn’t start out looking like a good hair day, but my tresses seriously look awesome right now (at least from the front, which is really saying somethign...

And that is why I generally don’t drink caffeine after 5 pm. Cuz a football game + more than 50 Dashboard pages and I’m still not tired. Gotta say though, without that Coke Zero I probably would’ve fallen asleep on the drive home and definitely wouldn’t have turned on the bowl game, which turned out to be much better than I would’ve expected. Southern Miss beat...
beautiful and forgotten.
havent-got-a-prayer: Do you ever wake from a dream and wish you hadn’t? It had been such a nice scene, and then your eyes were open and your mind was pulled out of sleeping bliss. Perhaps you were in love, leaning in for that sensual touch or a beautiful kiss. Maybe your heart was pounding with the thrill of the chase, and the adventure was ended all too soon. Perhaps you even found yourself...

georgiegirlnyc: Julia has a bunch of lovely emails on her blog about ‘paying it forward’ or what I would refer to as ‘random acts of kindness’.
