heat wave.


who doesn't enjoy a nice light brew or two...or three....?

cucumber water is THE BEST beverage to refresh yourself during the hot hot heat.

I've had the WEIRDEST craving for fish tacos all week.
I'm obsessed.


hanging poolside<face planted in pool.

sleep=sleep. always a good thing.

despite the heat, i love you summer. i'm sorry that you're ending soon.

* I do not take credit for any of the above photographs. they are beautiful and wonderful :)

a dream, within a dream, within a dream...

Saturday night, J and I went and saw Inception. I will add to the majority when I say this is by far the best movie I have seen in a very, very , long time. Having bought our tickets just in time, we arrived with minutes to spare, while others had to settle with seeing the later show. SOLD OUT. Due to our lack in promptness, we rushed in to search for the best seat, and as the movie gods would have it, us tardy kids got what we deserve-- the FRONT ROW.

Just when I thought I could explode from aggravation, the movie began and I was quickly immersed in Christopher Nolan's world, and what a mighty and intricate world it was.
Any and all previous thoughts had been immediately erased and I was soaking in his universe.
Commence multiple brain explosions.

If you haven't seen this film yet, please, run, summersault, rollerblade, or hitch-hike to your local theatre.

yes, it's that good.

the quiet girl, in the back of the temple.

after many many failed attempts, we got our video chat to work!!

this has rejuvenated my soul. :)

I have been reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert for over a year & a half or so now..having started it way back when I was dealing with all sorts of emotions and loss.

to dropping it.
then picking it up again.
to now, sticking to it, until I am finally finished.
I particularly enjoy this one quote , " Your treasure--your perfection--is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the busy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart."

this is what I'm learning to do.

today I spent the day with my parents, wrote letters to my dearies that are miles and miles away, & reorganized my life. ( or really, just unpacked my bags....for now that is)

Now, Becky is coming up to see ME!! I am beyond excited. It seems it's harder when you grow up to hang and stuff...that part sucks. but knowing we are all still the same , and have the same hearts...that's what matters..

at the end of the day atleast.

Florida Forever.

last week i was able to take a much needed , long awaited vacation through florida with some of my favorite people.

through georgia, we started the trip off with a stay in Lake City, FL.
9 hours down, we arrived just in time for the hotel's social hour, we mingled, and sipped on free beverages, ALL poolside.

from there, we drove 3 hours south, to Orlando, FL.

thanks to my parents, we were able to stay in some of the nicest resorts for FREE!
(thanks mama and daddy!)

during our stay in Orlando, we went swimming, indulged ourselves in great random conversation, rediscovered our "inner child" at Universal Studios & Islands of Adventures...

and YES, we par-took in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

mid-week we drove to daytona beach, where we played and tackled the waves.
my nephew , parents , & grandmother joined up with us, making this day perfection!

on up the road 2 hours,we went to explore one of THE oldest towns in the U.S., St. Augustine!
this city is one of my absolute favorites!

i'll let the photos explain themselves. there are more to come, my friends...

needless to say, i did not wanna leave. but the road is open & my heart is answering its call.


brand new.

the time has circled 'round again, folks.
for the sake of my sanity, i have decided to write again.

i'm unsure how long it's been exactly.
but boy, oh boy, am i estatic!
