An Unexpected Hiatus//Life Update

Hi...remember me?  Yeah, it's been awhile.  Well it's official.  I haven't posted in a month!  What?!  How did that happen??  I mean, it's not like I didn't try to write, I did.  But I never finished a post and thus they never got published.

How has your summer been???  Mine has been going great!!  Busy, but great!  I've been swimming, went to some movies, got to go to Tahoe for the day to meet someone very special...any guesses who I met????  Well, if you guessed Mary, then you were right!!!!  Yes, it is true.  I was blessed to meet the author of Sunshine and Scribblings, Ms. Mary herself.  It was AMAZING!!!  She was super sweet and nice and was such a lovely time.  "I laughed, I cried, it moved me, Bob."  Well, minus the crying part. ;D Kudos to you if you catch that quote!  And of course, we took some pictures.  Here we are together.

And yes, her hair is lovely. <3  And also yes, I'm a little petite. :D

Remember when I told you guys the story of seeing the soldier coming home at the airport?  I mentioned that we were getting a puppy.  Well, technically she is still a puppy, but she is a biggy girl!  Everyone, meet Beatrice.

She is an English Bulldog.  Ain't she pretty?  She's a little love (well, when she wants to be ;)).

A little bit of an update on reading.  I've been working on The Circle by Ted Dekker.  I'm already on the last/first book Green (if you've read them, you know what I mean ;)).  I have also read some of Peter Pan.

I am also knitting a sweater!  It's from a 1940's pattern.  I really hope it turns out.  This is the first time I've used a knitting pattern.  So, we'll see what happens. ;D

And some pretty exciting news...I'm going to be modeling vintage clothing!!!  I am SUPER excited!!  There is this lady I follow on Instagram that isn't too far from where I live.  She is an Etsy seller guessed it, vintage clothing.  After some talking back and forth, I am going to go to a photo shoot at the end of the month.  Eeeepppp.  So excited!

Well, I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!  I guess I'll end this Veggie Tales style.
"Remember, God made you special.  And He loves you very much.  Bye!"



  2. Hello, dear! Glad to see a post! I have neglected my blog too for the past few weeks, sadly. But anyways, that's so cool to have met another blogger! :D I know that would be super fun.
    You're reading the Circle Series?! YAAAYY. I love that one! It is very interesting. Ted certainly has a unique way of looking at things.
    I think, out of all the four books, the first one and the third one are my favorite. Although it is hard to recall everything that happened in each because it's such a weighty series... but do let me know what you think of it when you're done! Or consider writing a post. I would settle for that too. :)
    But I hope you like it!

    THAT IS FROM VEGGIE TALES DAVE AND THE GIANT PICKLE. When I was young, I used to be so scared of that pickle. :D

    A model for vintage clothing? I think you might have found the best job ever! :) That sounds so cool! You will fit right in with the clothes and everything! :D
    I hope you have a great time doing that.
    Until next time!

    AND YOU'RE MODELING VINTAGE CLOTHING?? :O That's so perfect for you! My mom actually commented that you looked like a '40s nurse...and for some reason, that's totally what I was thinking, too. XD You're just so classy and beautiful, and vintage styles suit your very well.
