and here's where i take a moment just to acknowledge how amazing this semester's fine arts was. not only did the performance of shakespeare's "midsummer night's dream" absolutely blow us away and left us all dying of laughter, but it was brilliant to go with such a dapper chap and one of my dear friends.

can i just say how much i hate flying? being in the actual plane in the actual air is lovely, but i absolutely abhor terminals. and airlines that keep you grounded for 12 long hours just to let you know that you have to stay an extra night in florida, when all you want to do is go home and see your family and friends -- yeah, that's not exactly what i call the adventure of a lifetime. but when i finally came home to californian {albeit foggy} skies against a backdrop like this....

...well, i suppose it's not too hard to let the nightmare slip away, especially when i came home to people like this...

what to say about this semester -- about these past five months? it was was full of stressful moments, unforgettable moments, chaotic, dizzying, hilarious, ironic, i-can't-believe-this-is-happening, ecstatic, so-happy-to-be-alive-in-this-place moments. it left me breathless and wide-eyed and oh-so-thankful for the overwhelming grace the Lord is always so willing to show and give. i met so many incredible people who i am now blessed to call my dearest of friends, and i'm so ridiculously blessed to come home to dear souls back in Cali + being able to celebrate my homecoming at the magic kingdom with my family, my bestie, and her family is more than i could ever wish for. 
i also met a dear miss marcia after four years of blogging and guys, she is such a sweetheart. i gave her a tour of the campus, and we sat in the commons for three hours chatting about blogging, life, delight-retreats, moving, designing, traveling, our "californian/coloradian" homes, and just catching up on life! ;) her smile/laugh is kind of the best ever. she's such a gem! 
i want to do life with you too {so come visit me in cali or florida, whydontcha?}. 
postscript // words are coming slowly to me of late, but bear with me. i've got lots of posts coming up soon. ;) i say it a lot at the end of posts, but i really do mean it when i say thanks for sticking around, lovelies. 


  1. Lovely pictures -- it's been a while since I've been here on your blog. I'm totally lovin' your words penned at the top "you never know what you are made of until change rustles in these bones" (beautiful poetry to my ears!)

    Blessings to you!

  2. Such lovely photos! :) Sounds like you had a good semester.

  3. I was so excited to see a post from you pop up in my feed! I'm so glad you had a good year, and congratulations on completing your first year of college! It looks like you and Marcia had a good time together. Hooray for "blogging friends" becoming "real life friends".


  4. these photos are beautiful. My favourite is the second one, reminds me so much of when I studied drama with all of my friends.
