a story borrowed…

i just read my sister Katie‘s most recent blog post & read about
my 4 year old niece, Carolyn,
& her attempts to keep my sister {fashionable}.
the best part? Carolyn exclaiming to my sister:
{carolyn, 2008.}
“Mommy! A girl has always got to look her best!”

i love it. i love her. i love such moments.

quote of the week

{Quote of the Week.}

week {Sechsundzwangzig};

“I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”Shana Abe

One day, i’ll fly away.

this summer has been very mellow–really; i have no summer school, no job, & no money. this has left ample time for me to explore the blog-o-sphere & read a plethora of {beautiful stories} & {swoon} over photos from all over the world.
–While most may regard this as a “fabulous way to spend time”, i find myself getting down about my own adventures. don’t get me wrong, i have encountered my fair share of fun adventures here in Kansas, & i {cherish} them immensely.
However, i long to go out & {explore} beyond these coordinates.
i’ve always been longing to return to Europe, & i have always planned to after school. but recently i have been {yearning} to even more so…
i am going to save & save & save my money, once i start getting some. {minor detail…} & i am going to plan a trip there perhaps over winter break. but really, i want to look into this amazing program i have really been wanting to do for a long while now.

so darlings, please think {good thoughts} for me& i shall do the same for you.

..because i believe we all deserve to be {truly happy}.
