Emma

For my birthday, this past August, I received a beautiful copy of Emma from some dear friends. I've yet to finish reading it, I'm halfway through. I don't even know when I'll have the free time to get to it. Perhaps on a lovely spring evening when I'm not bombarded with schoolwork or anything else? Sounds highly unlikely. Here's hoping.
I'd love to have the complete collection of the Penguin classic books.

He is GOOD.

I've been thanking God for pain. Pain seems to carry this negative connotation with it. But I've come to see, it's a good thing. It hurts, obviously. But what ensues from this pain is a kind of healing. Through pain you begin to see reality better, and you draw nearer to the Lord. It's the best thing to be closer to the Lord. Trials and even minuscule hardships are painful, but God is so GOOD. He is beautiful, the definition of bliss. All praise be to Him; He will never leave us nor forsake us in our weaknesses or troubles.
Thank you, Lord.

happy birfday

I know love is supposed to be unconditional, but I think my sister will love me even more if I make these cupcakes for her birthday. Happy birthday sis!

elephant

I've got an elephant of a to-do list this week.
I'm gradually accepting the fact that life won't really get easier, and that being an adult means having responsibilities.

for Pete's sake


Peter Pan inspired.
This shoot is one of my all time favorites.




p.s. here's a quote I love from Peter Pan:
Mrs. Darling: There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.
Michael: Where did he put them?
Mrs. Darling: He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... he does. And that is why he is brave.

Allosaurus

Apparently, there's a dinosaur called Allosaurus. It's really named after me.
Haven't figured out if that's a good thing, this dino looks terrifying.

Wouldn't you love to have a colossal library at your home?
