crazy town

I love my house in Chelan. I love spending quality time with the people that matter the most in my life. I love how free I feel the minute I drive through Snoqualmie Pass and start to see a change of scenery. The relaxed lifestyle of a small town is so refreshing, so personal and quaint yet so dangerous. After having a house in this small town for almost 13 years, I have definitely created some incredible and not so incredible memories. Some worth mentioning and some that I would pay $1 million to forget. This Summer I feel like I created some of those memories that will last a lifetime. The type that have a soundtrack, similar to the Summer of '98. The Summer of '98 can instantly be recalled to memory within seconds of hearing Santana, Chicago or Brandy "The Boy is Mine." Needless to say, it was a Summer that I'll never forget. Epic failures and even more incredible gains, it's safe to say that I've definitely changed.

the golden rule: needs to be re-evaluated

"Treat others the way you would like to be treated..."

I think, maybe, there's room for adjustment with this rule. Like, say, for example, I treat someone the way I would like them to treat me, yet they treat me however they want (which isn't good). Does that mean I'm going against the golden rule if I decide to be a bitch and cut them out of my life? It's a fine line, I'm not sure I want to cross it, but I definitely don't want to be treated with disrespect.

something sexy about the rain...

It's August. A U G U S T ! Typically the hottest month of the year, I'm usually lounging by my pool every night after work just to avoid my hotter than Haiti condo...... Not this year. This year is completely F'd.

This was taken on SATURDAY AFTERNOON. Instead of tan toes and freckled shoulders, I'm looking at wool socks and knee length UGGS!!!!

Mr. Sunshine, I promise to be a good girl if you promise to come out and fulfill your duties in life.

Everyone has a time of year that reminds them of LOVE. For most its the holiday season, presents, mistletoe, hot chocolate, valentines day hearts, etc. For me, it's always been Summer. The minute the sun starts to shine in this Evergreen, 24/7 car wash state, I immediately feel like I could fall in love. I love, LOVE. I'm obsessed with tan fingers intertwined and freckled noses meeting with a kiss. As soon as I can smell Summer, I am in love.

This Summer, I don't see myself falling in LOVE, maybe LUST? It's not as beautiful, and it usually dissolves before it truly evolves into anything of importance, but it's still fun. All around me I am witnessing the act of falling in love, or being in love. I don't think there is anything more beautiful in life than the act of falling in love. It's impossible not to admire it and be inspired by it.

Burned out, Bruised and Beaten

"and you said I know that this will hurt, but if I don't break your heart, then things will just get worse. if the burden seems too much to bear, remember the end will justify the pain it took to get us there.."

I'm a hopeless romantic, I'm also guilty of over analyzing everything in my life. Two things that seriously cannot go hand in hand and end with success. I have the ability to talk myself into and out of the most ridiculous situations just by over analyzing something. A conversation, a picture posted on facebook, lack of text messaging (yes, it means something when you don't text). You name it, and I will obsess over it until I am blue in the face, or red, seeing as how this stress leads to hours on the treadmill. Regardless, my hopeless romantic bone in my body allows me to fall ever so easily for anyone that crosses my path; granted I am attracted to them and have chemistry. (I'm not talking about a random person who catches my eye, not that crazy!) I am passionate, and with this passion, I put my heart out there for all to see and eventually hurt. I literally have no idea how and why I do this. I don't know how to change it, I don't even know how to control it. I'm burned out, bruised and beaten and I can't seem to do a damn thing to make it stop.
