the holidays

My grandparents came to town for thanksgiving and I got to spend some quality time with my grandpa Bill Harris. One thing I learned from our time together is that joy is timeless. Even thou he is 55 years older than me we can laugh together and feel the same joy inside our souls. I think that's pretty incredible.

One day while he was here we did the dishes together and hes hard of hearing so we just did them silently next to one another it was kind of a magical moment for me as I only see him once every four or five years so I didn't want to take any moment for granite. I wonder if I'll ever have a moment like this with my grandchild. It was really special to me that I got to take his picture my other grandpa died before I had a chance to.

Then came christmas... which I spent in depoe bay. The ocean too is timeless to me just like joy :)

This is my mom. Isn't she beautiful!? She's taught me so much in my life and gave me an abundance of love :) And she's a pretty good photographer too as she shoot the two shots below ;)

Now christmas is over and a new year has begun. Today I turn 24 with a new year and new job I am eager to see where it will take me. I know its going to be great even better than the last one which was incredible. Happy New Year to all of you I hope its as great as mine is going to be ;)

The world is so different to me now then it once was. So much bigger so much more to explore so much more beauty than i had once imagined. And so much more real which is a great thing but also at times scary. More and more I am realizing the beauty of life. Life is poetry in motion and my footsteps carry the poem forward. I am exactly who I am supposed to be and where I am supposed to be. A friend once told me "You have to learn how to swim before you enter the rapids. If you go in before you learn you'll have too much fear to push through." Well Im learning to how swim and its wonderful. I am enjoying being me. Life is beautiful. Rain or shine. Just thought I'd share that with you today :)
