Pumpkin Contest

pumpkin2018

My pumpkin this year is definitely scary, and it just so happens to be one of the most abstract pumpkins that I have ever carved… Honestly, I was quite disappointed with it at first, but I have thoroughly enjoyed laughing at myself and other people’s interpretations of what it is suppose to be. Therefore, I am hosting a fun contest on Maysa Rose to see if anyone can correctly guess my pumpkin carving. The winner and answer will be announced in my next post; will it be YOU? Drop your guess in the comments section below and have a safe and Happy Halloween 2018!

Homecoming Memories

Memories flood back from Homecoming 2017 when the five of us made our grand entrance to the school in a minivan with string lights and loud music. We danced until we lost our shoes, laughed until our stomachs hurt, consumed more sweets than we should have, and fell in love with the NYC themed courtyard…

After the dance ended, we were escorted back to my friend’s house where we all enjoyed a bonfire and stayed up until 5:00 AM. That night was definitely one to remember, and memories continue to race through my mind as this year’s annual event comes to an official close. I watch as decorations are taken down from the high school, and I flashback to last year… Homecoming 2017

Great Grandpa

I never knew that last hug would really be the last. I never knew that goodbye truly meant goodbye… I thought I would see him again very soon.

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”

~Philippians 3:20-21

I am so lucky to have known my great grandfather, and I know that he is smiling down from heaven right now as the entire family recalls all of the great memories he gave us. Huntin’… Fishin’… Talkin’… Laughin’… He is definitely someone worth rememberin’.

We love you grandpa!

I missed it!

“The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout and hands full of flowers.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I realize that the first day of Spring was yesterday, but it is never too late to share the adoration and happiness of this beautiful time of year. As the flowers transform the world into an array of color, never walk past a single petal without recognizing how fortunate you are to witness such a magnificent gift from God.

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring. 🙂

Family

“At times, we fight.

At times, we hug.

Sometimes, we are arguing.

Sometimes, we are laughing.

The relationship is complicated.

But one this is for certain…

I will always love my Family.”

~Maysa

We dance

“We dance for laughter,

we dance for tears,

we dance for madness,

we dance for fears,

we dance for hopes,

we dance for screams,

we are the dancers,

we create the dreams.”
