September is here!

I cannot believe September is here you realize how fast this summer has gone by? I remember back to June 1st when I just moved into my new apartment with 3 of my friends from the dorms at college…does not seem THAT long ago at all! I have had many up’s and down’s over these past 3 summer months. It all began at the beginning of August when I was starting to think about what I was going to do with my life after college, I mean I know what I am majoring in and what I want to do for a job but I started second guessing where I was going to school paired with this passion I have to move back out west to Seattle…I even almost joined the Navy! I know super crazy. I have to credit my best friend Katie for making me realize how crazy I actually was…when I finally told her this is all she said, “Are you on drugs?” it still makes me laugh to this day when I think about it. As of today though I have figured everything out and am on a good track! I start class (my Junior year babyyyy!) on Tuesday and couldn’t be more excited to get back on a schedule and not have as much free time! (after a while I don’t know what to do with myself ya know?) I personally think 3 months is to long of vacation to have for summer break…now ask me that 10 years ago when I was in elementary/middle school and I wouldn’t believe what I was saying haha! I guess I just want school to start because the sooner it does, the sooner I graduate and get to move on with my life!
Well here is my goodbye to the end of summer and my hello the the great school year ahead of me!

lining my driving where I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. There is much more where these come from!

Growing Old

Is this not the image you think of when you think of the phrase "Growing old together?"
I saw this lovely couple and it made me so happy I just had to take a picture of them! 

Just enjoying each other's company while relaxing and talking by the lake..
how wonderful! 

What is it that you think of when you picture growing old together with the ones that you love?

Last Night

On a Trip 
to Starbucks (the world's favorite coffee establishment!) 
I met up with one of my close friends to catch up
but while on my way home, I pulled the car over and took 
these beautiful photographs!

The sunset over the frozen lake was priceless.

The Simple Things in Life

There are many things in this world where you can look at it and just say "ahh"
to me a picture of yarn depicts a lot.

In its simplicity your imagination can go wild! All of the things you can do with yarn is endless.
It is those homemade gifts that you can provide a family member, or friend that are cherished for years.

What simple things in life do you enjoy?
