I have not written in so long. I take that back, I have not POSTED in a long time. A little over a month really. I have experienced sorrow and joy but all I want to say this, hold your loved ones closely. Treat each other kindly. Show your love in all ways whether with words or in your actions. Laugh more. Dream more.
I had a friend pass recently and it left me shocked and heartbroken. I regret not speaking with him more often and missing his summer nuptials.
In that time of darkness God gifted Michael and I with great friends to help us keep our chin up. We were able to take a camping trip and it really helped us keep our minds off of life.
Our first camping trip together.

After our camping trip we were able to take am extra day off of work to show our friend around town while he was visiting. We spent most of the day at the beach getting tan and gorgeous!

Floppy hats :)
Burns so good!

Our third wedding anniversary was on the 16th of June so the Saturday before we had our pictures taken to celebrate us!
These were taken by my sister in law Christina. She is in the San Diego area so if you want to get photos taken with here check out her facebook!
For me, Easter is about celebrating Jesus with my family. A friend told me over the weekend that she doesn’t observe Easter because she celebrates the resurrection every day. I felt kind of bad because she has a point. We have taken the meaning out of these holidays that are meant to observe Jesus and have made it about Santa and a bunny. Lucky for me, I have a great family who reminds me why we celebrate. Jesus is to be celebrated every day.
We recently left a church and are in search for a new one. One where we can find community and love. I was raised in the church and I didn’t really have a say in where I attended. When I turned 17, I rebelled. I told someone recently that I feel like 17 was the worst year of my life (So far. I’m only 24). I fell away from God and relied on others for joy and love. If I hadn’t dated Michael during that time I probably wouldn’t have gone back to church. He insisted we go every Sunday.
I came back to The Lord when I was 19. I met a lot of people while working in the salon that really challenged my faith. I thought I knew so much since being raised in church and now I don’t feel like I know anything. I guess what I’m saying is, I have been questioning everything I have ever learned. I’ve said this before on my blog but I am in such a different place in my life and its scary and exciting. I talk to a lot of people with different beliefs that really interest me. All I know is that I want to learn so much about God I can’t hardly stand it. I hope to find a community of people who challenge my faith and in return I grow closer to God.
Sorry for this random babble, some things just need to be shared.
At every holiday we spend the day eating, playing games and watching movies. This weekend was particularly special because we celebrated my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. On Friday evening we took a dinner cruise around San Diego bay with my family.
After church on Sunday we came home and made breakfast. I am a terrible cook but luckily I didn’t have to do it alone. My sister Mikayla spent the weekend with us so she was able to help prepare the food.
We spent the rest of Easter Sunday with my family; minus my mom, Josh and Jackie.
My Valentine/birthday weekend was so special! All of the wonderful people I love made me feel exceptionally loved! My co-workers made me cupcakes and sang to me Friday. My husband surprised me with flowers, a card, and my favorite candy when I got home from work. Saturday we went to my cousin’s wedding and today I found out she is having a girl! Dinner with my husbands family Saturday evening and my family Sunday. Monday we spent the day at Disneyland with my Mikayla.
I love the people who I surround myself with these days! People come and go but the ones near and dear are here to stay. I have a good feeling about this year!

From my family to yours, I hope this Christmas is as joyful as ever and I pray that you all would have more love in your heart for one another.
