For those of you that know me you know that I collect rocks from all over the world. So when someone asks what I want them to get me when they go somewhere, I tell them a rock.

Yeh, I'm pretty easy.

I have some really great ones. And one day when I'm back in California I will fit them into my landscaping. Somehow. Anyway, just a cool concept I think.

My latest rock is from St. Martins in Canada (just got it today).

Legend has it the Mi'kmaq believed that a stone with a band of white around it was a sign of good fortune from Mother nature. Today when you find such a stone, make a wish and keep the stone in your possession. Once your wish has come true, pass the stone on to someone else.

10 things I have been slightly obsessed with lately:

1. The amazing way Fall weather makes me feel.
2. Mixing up my workout routine with spin class.
3. Trying to eat mainly organic foods.
4. Being a vegetarian again. Except fish.
5. Completely feeling on top of it, in almost every aspect of my life.
6. My California nest egg that grows larger and larger by the day.
7. Getting a weekend/holiday job.
8. Learning to cook all sorts of yummy non-meat concoctions.
9. My new shampoo and conditioner.
10. Getting the Nikon D300.

I had a thought today as I sat in the bathroom stahl. While doing the usual peek at the shoes in the neighbor stahl I had to take a moment to wonder "who on earth is next to me?" What WAS next to me was the ugliest pair of old lady shoes I've seen in awhile. Hmmmm. I tried to figure out who in our office would wear such a thing. We're all young. Hmmmm.

So, on this 24th day of September, 2008 I do solemnly swear that I will NEVER in my life wear old lady shoes. Do these people not open up magazines and see cute, comfy stylish shoes? I'm guessing no.

Some examples:

(If you own a pair of these, please.....throw them away)!

P.S - I wouldn't mind dressing like this lady when I'm 100. Minus the cigar.

I'm just sayin....

this and that...

hurry up and come.

and then I will be scared. again.

of starting all over. again.

but it feels so natural. like i'm on the right path.

in which i needed a 6 year detour before i went back.

and who knows what will come in the 365 days+ before i jump again.

but it feels so natural.

i can feel it coming together. each little detail. and sometimes i think i am crazy.

for leaving all of this that i've built in the last 5 years.

i just can't help it. i'm supposed to be there. not here.

and who knows what will come. we never do know. we never can predict.

and who knows what will come on this path.

or who.

but i can't wait.


Tengo un corazón grande

I probably should be working, but I like to take a break here and there to brush up a bit more on my studies. ;)

I think the glasses add a nice touch.

Don't you??

I look like I could get away with just about anything in this photo.

So angelic.


One of the many reasons why I am moving back to California.....

To escape this.

They're everywhere down here!!

And I just had to post this shot I took at the beginning of Frank and Courtney's reception.

The most classy wedding I've ever been to might I add. Everything was to the nine.

Including the table centerpiece, which was a must to document....

When an avocado says RIPE NOW does it mean you have to eat it now???

I've had this on my desk for 2 days now and it's getting a bit soft. Avocados are one of my favorite things. And this one.....this one is from Mexico. Where I will be in a matter of months chillin for a week in a villa on the beach with a personal chef and bartender.

I just had to throw that out there. ;)

I'm a little afraid my wandering frame of mind, passport and I may not return.

Time to cut into my deliciousness.....

A feelin' blue kinda day.

The idea of someone you love leaving you without notice, without a goodbye, without anything is hard.

What's harder is when it's a reality.

You have to move on. It's all you can do. Life keeps on going and you can try and try to get some sort of answer on why, but I guess you have to accept that no answer at all IS the answer.

That doesn't make it hurt any less though.....

What is an easy way to blow $30 on absolutely nothing????

Go to the state fair.

You would have thought I had my fill when I went to the county fair a few weeks ago, but I thought I would end my summer with one more. I haven't even been to a fair since I lived in LA and now 2............all in the span of a month. Fairs are so dirty and gross. But there is something so odd about the world of the carnies that intrigues me in some strange way. Such a different world.

Photo worthy.


I flew. Well kinda....

I played the game where they try to guess your age and won!! The man guessed I was 24. ;)

And I tried to dunk this jerk that was making fun of everyone.

I wasn't successful.

Guess what.....

I'M GOING TO PUERTO VALLARTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My niece Kylie won a photo contest and is now competing in the national competition.

I just want to eat her up with two little teeth she has. **Sigh**

Here's the winning photo.

- Proud Aunt.

"have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms written in a very foreign language. don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. and the point is to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing, live your way into the answer."
