{grace was born today}

my beautiful new niece grace was born today. that is the most important thing.

went hiking with boise last weekend at mcdowell creek. it was rainy and muddy, but we still had a great time. i was starting to get sick so hiking in the rain probably wasn't the smartest move, but i'm so glad we went.

i wasn't very prepared for the cold weather and mud. had to roll up my sweats and steal a hat.
ready for it to be sunny so we can go back and see what it looks like during a different season.

{this life}

"This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

Sooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. You know when you need a break. You know when you need a rest. You know what to get worked up about and what to get rid of.

Because you know it's never too late to have a life. And never too late to change one.
