& now

my new tumblr is no longer private. you can follow me now if you'd like. however, i must warn you that there will probably be multiple photo posts of me, miguel, & miguel & me, & food. always food. haha. also, just a warning that i may make it private from time to time. it will most likely be updated more than the blog since i can do it from my cell phone & posting photos is so much more easier that way. (i still need a new camera to replace my broken one!). anyways, follow & ask away!

thanks for the encouraging comments on my last post. i love that you all are rooting for me : )

this going to be a long week...

i have been homesick for you since we met

 life has been...a bit crazy lately. stressful. sad. hopeful. longing. but most of all, i have felt loved. i've had quite a few visits to the doctor recently. waiting is tough. sometimes finding out is more tough. miguel has been figuratively & actually holding my hand through everything & i love him dearly. i get to visit him once a week if i am lucky. it's tough living apart.
part of the results from my doctor visits have been that i really have to eat healthier. i am a vegetarian, but i do love my cheese & recent trips to local farms have ensued. fresh food is really the best.
i've started a personal tumblr where i mostly blog my own stuff. it's private right now, but i am feeling like i will let you all see it soon : ) peace & happiness to you.

busy weeks

 i've been so behind in my blogging that i decided to make this one post to encompass some of what has been going on in my life. last month i decided that i wanted to get back into writing letters & sending packages. so i contacted jane & asked if she would like to exchange packages & she agreed! i got an amazing package from her:
 she sewed this little zipper pouch out of a toms flag!

 she designs cute graphics & she sent me two cards she designed! i want to send this one to miguel...shh! ;)
 in other news, my sister turned 21 last month & i flew to visit her for a week. we did so many things: whale watching (& dolphin sightings! see below), the spa (i got a facial for the first time & it was so relaxing), & a sunset cruise.
 we also visited the humane society & played with all the kittens! it was two hours of pure glee.
 i'll be teaching my arts & crafts project this year again to school kids. lizzie & i had fun making this flyer together. no one has signed up though...but i hope they do! we have a lot of fun things planned.
 lastly, i thought it was so cute that most of you who entered the giveaway said you wanted more miguel ;) i do too...haha! i was trying to not be one of those girls who blogs only about their boyfriend (even though it's hard not to!), but since you don't mind me blogging about him, i'll keep that in mind : )
here we are, one day after our seven month anniversary!
