Life has been so good lately. I'm so happy right now that I'm almost in tears.
This month I have been learning more about who I am as a person and it has been a great little adventure. I have also been getting myself mentally ready for the changes that will hopefully be taking place in the future. I feel like I am in a time in my life where I'm saying "out with the old and in with the new." I am ready to embrace these changes, go with the flow and see what the next phase in this chapter is going to be.
On a totally random note, I want to say that I love all of you who read my blog! I know that it is mostly my friends, family, and occasionally my followers (and maybe some random creepers. Hello creepers!) But I'm so glad that I have a little place in this world where I can share my feelings and life with you guys. I promise that I will start sharing things on here that will be more....umm....interesting for you all.
I love love love you all and wish that I could just give you all the biggest hugs.

Over the weekend I went on a mini camping trip with two of my dear friends. I needed to have a new camping experience because the first time I had ever gone I pretty much thought I was going to freeze to death. That was one of the worst/most funniest memories that I will cherish forever. This second time I had the best experience. In my eyes it was the definition of perfect. Although instead of staying in a tent we slept in a camper. Who cares. We still spent most of our time outdoors making s'mores, telling stories and laughing around the camp fire, exploring the woods, sitting by a lake having my morning coffee, and picking (pretty) weeds...and occasionally a black berry. I need to do it again.
This month I have learned that I love being outdoors. More than I thought I did. Maybe its the lovely spring weather that is making me want to spend more time outside or maybe its because I'm tired of spending my time cooped up in retail stores or Starbucks. All I know is that I am okay if I whined up living in a shack by the beach or a small house in a mountain surrounded by nature. Some of the happiest times in my life were spent outdoors looking at the beauty that the Lord created.
As I was driving to Coldspring, Texas I saw the most BEAUTIFUL place to watch the sunset. It almost took my breath away and my mouth dropped as I drove by. I almost pulled over just to watch it but I was trying to reach my destination before it got dark because I had no clue where I was going haha. I'm promising myself that I will go back to that exact spot to watch the sunset or sunrise sometime in my near future.
Well that was my weekend. Oh and today is Earth day. How convenient of me to have gone camping and fall in love with our Earth even more.
I love camping.

I said "DUH". When is it not a good idea to go to the beach?
Then Friday afternoon we surprised my siblings and picked them up from school. They were so surprised and excited. I loved it.
It's so nice to live an hour away from the seaside. I take Galveston for granted a lot. Not many people can just wake up one morning and decide to drive down to the beach for a bit. I think that it's something that I should do more often. I think I should maybe do it alone sometimes too because sitting in the sand and looking out into the ocean does something to your soul. It awakens the senses and makes you see the beauty in life. It really is a wonderful thing.

I absolutely love the month of April. One of those reasons is because the weather is bipolar...but in a good way. Yesterday it was somewhere in the 80s. Today it's a high of 52. See, bipolar.
Another thing that I love is my mustard cardigan and my polka dot flats. I wear that cardigan pretty much every day. Someone once asked me what was a single article of clothing that I couldn't be without. I said, my black tights. Nope. I was wrong. It's this cardigan.
What is your favorite article of clothing that you cannot live without?

This is just going to be mostly pictures. Let me just begin to say that I felt so blessed this past Friday. My birthday was filled with lots of coffee, sushi, green tea ice cream, a tower of donuts as my cake and love. It was a good day - a good fuuun weekend. I am now 21 and can buy alcohol. I'm more excited to be able to buy alcohol to bake with than to get wasted with. Haha I crack myself up sometimes. But being able to legally drink it is nice too.
By the way, I got everything on my wish list's that I shared with you. Everything but the windshield wipers. I'll just have to buy that myself haha.
Ps - Madie (Girl Named Fiddy), I'll let you know how the "It's Gonna Be Okay" journal cheers me up ;)
You all should check out Madie's blog!

My goodness you guys. This past week has been sooo stressful! It has come to the part of the semester where everything from projects to research papers are due all at the same time. I havent had time for anything other than my school work. I barely even had time to instagram (boooo). You know a person is really busy if they cant even post a picture. BUT I finished everything - and turned all projects in on time.
Well its april and my birthday is tomorrow. I'm going to be 21. hooray hooray!
Last month was probably the worst month of this year. Hopefully I wont have any other months like that for a while. But now I am excited to see what april brings. I have a lot of fun things to share with you guys this month. So stay posted :)
