Coast to Coast

For the past week I have been nothing but ecstatic for my family's trip to the East Coast. I have lists and lists of places I would love to see and eat. I can hardly stand the anticipation! I've also been packing little by little each day so I am not befuddled trying to pack things the day before/the morning of (I am horribly a procrastinator at times, will expand more on that later). I am so excited that it is almost sickening. I barely slept last night thinking about it all. Which is why I'm here posting about it most rantingly. (I don't think rantingly is even a word considering I see the red line of death.)

Toodles for now, friends. Happiest Friday :)

PS Aren't those prints charming? There are more prints of cities listed for purchase in the etsy link above!

Again, I do realize it has been quite a while since I have posted, but I am just going to accept that that is how I am, making my way in and out of blogging life. Although my inability to post doesn't mean I haven't been up to anything. I think that is the problem. Life has become very busy lately (a whirlwind if you will with everything beautiful that comes in and out of our lives). However, I did want to share the goals and resolutions that I have been working on since the beginning of this year, which I hope also goes beyond 2014. :)

1. Be someone I love.

2. Feel the fear and do it anyway. 
3. Keep blooming.
Stay deeply rooted, but know that growing and blooming can be a painful process. Continue growing into the person God had always meant me to be. 
4. Have the faith and courage to live the beautiful life God has given me. 
5. Become a better listener.
6. Devote myself to the moment.
7. Capture, appreciate and experience the moments as they are. 
8. Live wholeheartedly, and share the love that has been so graciously given to me.
9. Learn to compartmentalize. 
10. Learn to love and appreciate all.

I pray because I can't help myself.
I pray because I'm helpless. 
I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping.
It doesn't change God, 
it changes me.
