Hello there,

Long time no write. I've been busy, you see. I start school again on Tuesday, almost 6 months after taking a break, or as my mom likes to call it, a sabbatical. I'm throwing my net out, I'm trusting the Lord; He'll come through. I'm taking two regular classes, plus three graduate courses, plus a test. Pero, como me dijo una amiga, "...hay que tomar los cursor y hay que laborar." Lets do this God.

I've also been busy sewing a bunch! yay! :) It's been really good! Just yesterday I was able to start and finish a lot of the projects I was excited to work on. I made two pillowcases, one drawstring pouch, a wallet, and a kid skirt. Today I went and bought a lot of new fabric :) So, I'm all set for my next friday, my official sewing day. I'm not taking the second part of my sewing course, because I'll be too busy with school and it's important to me to do well this semester. I'll be, God willing, getting certified as a teacher, and the test I have to take in march is super important for me to pass in order to get certified. Pray for me.

If you're wondering why I wrote hashtags on the title, I'll explain. Why are people hating so much on hashtags. I like it. It's like an, when you say something out loud and in your mind you add something else because you just thought of it.. I don't know..or maybe! a title for what you wrote..#conondrum I don't rightly know..but I support it! :)

As always, here's a little collage of some happenin's...

Mucho love,


Love/Hate relationship right there.

So long 2013.

I wonder, even now, if I'll even miss you. We had our ups and downs, but I must be fair, you did teach me a lot, actually; about God, about myself. Things I'd never notice if they hadn't been slightly painful. I don't regret a single day or lesson learned. "El crecer duele" me han dicho, and I thoroughly believe it. I thank God for you, 2013, but look forward to this new year with more hope than I dare voice. I even look forward to who I'll be, come next year, and what this new year will teach me, painful or otherwise. Because God has it all figured out, don't forget now. 

Mucho love,

In the middle of a janeshoot, as I like to call it.

Oh yeah, thumbs up for paper towel rolls everywhere!
