As soon as I felt the sun on my skin and the breeze through my hair, I knew that it was going to be hard to leave this place. California. Never in my mind did I think I was going to fall in love with California- let alone fall in love at first sight. Heck, until this summer I … Continue reading just as free…free as we’ll ever be.
As I read Water for Elephants on the bus this morning, one of my all-time favorite quotes and movie scenes from Big Fish popped into my mind (due to the whole circus thing). The line is, "They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that's true." and here is the … Continue reading yeah i saw sparks, and i saw sparks.
It's the little things in life. I say this quite often and think it much, much more. During a staff meeting (Oops!) I decided to dedicate more time on this little blog of mind making mention of the little things in my life that remind me how simple & precious life is. So this is … Continue reading it’s the little things: friday, march 18, 2011

Meet my 7-year old BFF, Michaella. And look at all of that sugar that she surrounded us with! My teeth hurt just looking at it. After a few weeks of making valentines for friends & family members, Michaella hosted a party for her friends- which turned out to be a surprise for me when I came in … Continue reading michaella & me

Anyways, today/tonight i got to spend some time with my friend, Michelle, and the adorable little Max (her son) and I feel like I cannot go to bed tonight without … Continue reading sometimes you just know
I told him that he "made my day", which may not have been entirely true since I spent the evening with the adorable little Marcus (2 months old now). An older gentleman walking behind me into my apartment building insisted on opening the door for me. Without hesitation, after my heart-felt "Thank You" I expressed my … Continue reading news flash, ladies: chivalry is apparently not completely dead.
I'm not an avid American Idol fan, but I didn't have to watch the show to see the amazing story of one of the auditioners, Chris Medina. The alarm went off on Thursday morning and I heard the story from the radio DJs. I opened the free daily paper only to see a little blurb next … Continue reading “that’s why he sings so good because he sings to you.”
~ Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale. ~ One of my little BFFs, Michella, asked me yesterday if there was a boy (in my life), to which I gave a blushing "Maybe...
