Out the Window

Sitting, watching out the window…too cold to feel a single passion.

Dreaming of a kind of Death.

Voices of birds appear suddenly—chanting their spell at me, or Perhaps, not at all.

Take me away from the unknown, for a riddle never sat well in my mind

Finding Myself

I told him of my sorrows, for the pain brought upon himself. I spoke a rhythmic sonnet, of lostness.  He replied from Robert Frost, “It’s not until you are so lost that you find yourself”… as I look through words of those once lost…another comes to mind, “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” -Henry David Thoreau

Staying true yourself is finding oneself.

Crooked Spine

She spoke of my crooked spine, though how is she to know? When one is crooked inside, does not always make it so. The x-rays of the past, might have shown the truth, but my soul is in alignment…forsooth.

Drain Me

Drain me, like the rush of standing up too fast…knowing any moment you might fall.

Drink my spirit for the tingling sensation of overconsumption, without fear of losing me.

For my time here will not understand the meaning of forever, [but will leave you an addict for my soul].

Illusions

Illusions following each day, let me be yours to see…everything you wish to see–trying to solve my riddle.

For the sphinx won’t let you live past its doors, if the questions asked are lost to yours.DSC_0051 (1)

Gianna’s 1st Birthday

February 6, 2015 marks the 1st birthday of my niece Gianna! We celebrated this past Saturday, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

The theme was The Wizard of Oz, so of course I had to make sure and sew her a custom made Dorothy dress! I’m so happy with the result, and the fact that it fit her just right!

My sister worked hard to make sure all the tiny details of the party were practically perfect. The cake was made by Donne (My brother in law’s mom) who spent so much time dedicated into creating such a magical dessert!

I was so excited to be able to photograph my first cake smash session!!! Gianna wasted no time digging in and smearing it all over the place. It was without a doubt well worth the mess! We all had a blast watching her discover the texture and taste of the cake, she even tried to offer me some at one point. After hosing off her piggy’s and giving her a “tubby time” bath, she dressed in her princess crown and poofy dress for one more photo session—phew! It was a tiring day for the birthday princess (and the family)! I can’t wait to see what exciting things (and photo opportunities) I get to experience with my niece for the years to come. She truly is a joy to be around- full of smiles, laughter, and love!
