Growing up

3 Oct

My family has decided that today’s garage sale is our last one. EVER.

This kinda makes my heart sad in the fact that as a child, growing up, this is something that we did every Saturday morning until the garage selling “season” was over.

At our garage sale today, you could find MY baby bed and high chair, my suitcase that I used when I went to my grandma’s as a little girl, my little mermaid lamp, my little cd player, and assortment of my Halloween costumes, and my prom dresses.

I have realized through this garage sale that the childhood and adolescence stage of my live, they are over.

I had my dream dress. The big POOFY pink one. It was FABULOUS!

I realize that right now is the time to grow up into the Woman that God has planned for me to be. Like, spending my Friday nights in the coffee shop reading my Bible and doing my devotional. And praying that everything will come together for my job in Japan.

Parting with my prom dresses is such sweet sorrow. Also, my mom parting with my baby bed makes her realize that I really have grown up and I am not momma’s little girl. I am 22 1/2. 🙂

What is something that you thought that would be hard to part with?


Favorite Season..

14 Sep


You were good to me. We had a lot of fun. A nice SUN BURN that was oh so painful. Weddings. Job. But, dear summer, I am so glad that you are coming to an end. We had a good time together but, your turn is over.

Dear Fall,

I cannot wait for you to be here. You are my favorite season. You are not too cold or too hot. You are just right. (That just reminded me of Goldie locks and the 3 bears.) You are beautiful. The colors of the trees and the leaves that fall on the ground and I will play in them no matter how old I am. I love to take pictures during this season. I love the feeling of being able to wear a scarf and flip flops at the same time. I love hay rides, bonfires, corn mazes, Starbucks, and that all of the annoying bugs die. 🙂

Oh and my favorite holiday of ALL time is during this season. Halloween. Yes, I know… it is “Satan’s” holiday, butttttttt what other day of the year can you dress up to be whatever you want to be? This is why this makes this holiday WONDERFUL ohhh and all of the free candy. 🙂

But the season following, Mr Winter, I DO NOT like. I am not a fan of being cold or having to scrape the frost off of my car. Or getting my pants wet because I am so short. And many other things I do not like about Winter.

Spring, I like you because then it means my birthday. And well, I have already discussed how I feel about birthday’s. 🙂

What is your favorite season?
