why i disappeared || sand from the dunes

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

just look. JUST LOOK AT THAT. the water horizon curves to the shape of the earth. IT IS SO BREATHTAKING. Pictures just don't do it justice. You can totally feel the power of our God when you stand on top of those dunes and just stare, breathless, at this...amazingness.

oh, yes. well. Some of you may have wondered why I haven't posted for over a week. Well, I'VE BEEN ON VACATION. (yes I didn't tell you *hides* sorry)

This has been on my bucket list forever. To see the real blue water that seemed only something in the pictures. ITS REAL PEOPLE. REAL. SO BLUE.

A while back Julia, Bree and picked out some glass jars for the purpose of sand for our trip. So when Julia and I got there we started filling our jars with sand and stones and such

p.s. climbing dunes is the best

have you ever climbed sand dunes?
have you ever just seen something so beautiful you are just breathless?

A week or so ago we went tubing down a river WHICH WAS SUPER COOL. So we got to the place and ended up having to wait 45 minutes because a large group just went in and they were out of tubes

Part of the time going down the river it was around 4-5 ft. at the deepest

also. filling cracks in my driveway with tar stuff? well, I can check that off my bucket list. We live in an old country home (around 100 years old), and fixing it up is actually really fun. The other day I spent a couple hours filling in cracks in the driveway while listening to a ton of audio books lol

do you do a lot of projects?
have you ever gone tubing down a river?

major nerf gun war || summer reading party

Monday, August 8, 2016

(so these photos are completely unrelated to this post but yeah).

There were many options at our summer reading party--such as, a bouncy house, games, obstacle course and...nerf guns.

I don't know about you but what's better than running around in your library after hours with 50 other kids and teens shooting each other with Nerf guns. I mean, COME ON? The bucket full of ammo was about 5 gallons. I kid you not. Everywhere you looked on the ground you could pick some up. *whispers* it was epic. SHOOTING AT STRANGERS IS THE BEST. lolol

Halfway through they brought the pizza out (which I didn't end up eating. Yes, I know. too much adrenaline). And then, they had the drawings.

So neither Julia and I won anything this year--but I think 2 hours of nerf gun warring was totally worth it.

The only bruise I got was on my hand, (yes, seriously), I put my hand up to shield myself and got shot. Not to mention the fact that for the past two days since I can barely walk--let alone walk up and down stairs.


have you ever experienced a major nerf gun war?
what are your summer reading parties like?

persevering after nano || chocolate donuts

Thursday, August 4, 2016

There's nothing better then spending a car ride talking with your sister, (HEY YOU), about plotting and books. << Bree is seriously the person you go do if you want a plot. but you can't have her. sorry.

AND THEN going to your friend's house, (HEY YOU GUYS), and making chocolate donuts. AND THEN taking a walk. and doing boho braids. and swapping writing. and writing together (AND FINISHING UP NANO). and all sorts of cool stuff that you can do in 7 hours.

like, awesomeness. Plus, it was the last day of July (IT'S AUGUST NOW. GAH.) so I got to finish up nano there and made 30k. LIKE WHAT. IT'S OVER. *goes into corner to cry*

BUT DON'T WORRY. Julia and I decided that even after NaNo we would persevere and continue on, (since we are both only halfway). And so we have been sticking with our writing rituals each night.

Hopefully I'll get to 50-60k. like what. NOVEL LENGTH PEOPLE. *hyperventilates*

guys. the summer reading drawing is FRIDAY. *trys not to scream* wait. that's tomorrow. GAH.

 have you done a boho braid?
do you ever just spend a whole day hanging out with friends?
