life is messy. trust the mess and the not knowing... this is the real part. the most interesting part.
-now i carry with me every fresh new start, and every final drive away. i dont carry the worry of your departure. i dont carry your number any more or your schedule in my mind. i carry the desire to go unnoticed at the same time not to be forgotten.
-i carry the laughter. ...... i carry the dream of you before i knew you and into the days to come. i want to believe there is a bigger plan and a need that is above me for my life. a way that i can trust my deicisions and the way it seems to go.
she quotes may sarton "immitate the trees" let go. cut off excess. prune. wait. watch. grow deep.
in the SWH journal... 6 years ago i wrote "today i carry- a longing to let go + not be scared of the facts"

The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths to it are not found but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.
-John Schaar

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.
-Rainer Maria Rilke

We know finite disappointment, but we know infinite hope.

i love this song....



you better believe it. this is my word for {2011}.


i gotta stop stressing about little things.
i quit my part time after-work job, doing respite one day a week.
now i am just working full time still at houston elementary.
now i can focus a little more on my blueyedesign business.

i have done a total of {12} big (23.5 in tall) letters in the last 4 weeks. crazy. i hadn't added them all up til just now! haha.

i am actually doing 3 of them tonight (finishing them anyways) 7 of the 12 are for the secretary at school! she gives me a lot of business. pretty great!

i still love owls & got 6 owl things for christmas :) none from the hubs. i think he thinks my owl fettish is nutso! :)

so i want to start getting headbands up on my etsy site. its long overdue! but my full time job is quite tiring- therefor... when i get off- i dont feel like doing much! but my goal in the next month is to get a bunch of headbands up! (someone hold me to it please??)

i want to EMBRACE doing the things i love when i have time to do them! i love selling my stuff and seeing people happy & wearing them. its fun because i've sold SO many hair things at work in the last year & i see someone wearing a flower or headband or something DAILY! its fun.

i want to EMBRACE house cleaning & laundry...etc. yeah embrace it. its life.

i want to EMBRACE eating healthier & cooking more meals for the hubbs!

i want to EMBRACE life. love. crafting. sewing. cooking. cleaning. hawk watching. owl thrifting.

what is YOUR word for 2011?

p.s. sorry i havent posted in like 2 mo. man i'm terrible!
