two hundred ninety one

-there is something uncontrollably weird about the moment you find out your ex has found someone else and is engaged to marry them. you're happy for them but it's still just kinda weird!
-there is something hilarious about watching your dog chase it's own tail. it doesn't matter how many times i've seen it before, it's still just as funny!
-there is something about working out so hard that you're shakey all over and it hurts to breathe. it's one of my favorite feelings in the world.
-there is something instantly satisfying about having lunch with a friend and talking for hours about absolutely nothing at all.
-there is something frustrating about the object of your infatuation losing it's grip on you. as much as you're ready to move on, sometimes you wish the facination would never end.
-there is something effortlessly delightful about playing with a puppy. i dont mind getting up in the morning as long as i wake up with rox snuggled up with me.
-there is something about spring sunshine that makes my optimism come out of it's wintery shell.

and there is something about this moment in time that leaves me wanting nothing more than what i already have.

{who knows how long this contentment will last}

darling 3 year old Austin was just diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and is in for the fight of his life. he was just admitted to primary children's medical center last week and will need a lot of blood transfusions over the course of his treatment. we're meeting up at ARUP blood services (near the U) this saturday morning to donate in his name and would LOVE if you could come donate too! when ARUP runs short on blood donations they are forced to purchase needed blood from outside sources and the cost ends up being paid by the family. by donating blood it helps to ensure that his family can have blood available free of charge.

-bring a picture ID.
-it just takes 30 minutes.
-one donation can save up to 3 lives.
-we'll be there at 9am but stop in at any time!!!
-let me know if you need any more info!

two hundred two

sometimes when things are not okay,
an elite group of people somehow manage to make it okay.
and i wonder,
i've always wondered,
where that strength comes from-
that dignity and grace
they put on in the face of everything that's happened in their lives.
because i really want to be that kind of person someday...
