Forever has just begun

It hasn’t really hit me yet..I’m engaged. It sounds so odd, like a dream. The best part is that it is real though. It’s one of those things that a little girl dreams about. I guess I still feel like that little dreaming girl. There are aways those things that you dream about when you are little. My dreams were to meet someone who treats me like a princess (which I have), to see this man propose to me (which has happened), and to have a beautiful simple wedding (which I can plan for someday.) I couldn’t be happier. <3 I wanted to marry the love of my life and have a family with big holiday dinners. I don’t know why but I just love family holidays, even though I have a small family. My dreams were simple and the crazy part is that they are coming true. They aren’t dreams anymore. No more wishes or hopes, just reality. Relaxing relaity.

I’m not saying that this journey is simple. Not even close. It is a clutter of ups and downs and starting all over again. This is because, when it comes to dreams you never want to settle for maybe this will work or maybe I don’t have to have that dream. If you want a dream to come true, no matter your age, then make it come true. Fight for what you believe in. Tyler and I wouldn’t be where we are today without each of us fighting for each other. It’s not an easy road, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. You’ll be surprised what you can achieve when you set your mind to accomplishing your dreams.

I still have many dreams that I have yet to make reality, but they will be someday. Right now though, I think baking some cookies sounds like a dream come true. :)

Tyler and I got engaged on Saturday, December 10, 2011. He apparently had been planning this for a while but I had not clue. <3

I created this cartoon design based off of geometric shapes. Unrealistic cartoons were new to me.

With the help of my boyfriend, I am creating a cartoon character for one of my classes. Cartoons are not my strong point so we will see how this turns out. This is just the outline. So there will be a lot more done to this.

Moving in and carring on

Summer is a time that most kids/teens in school look forward too and being in college I look forward to it as well. My summer is almost to an end though. The surprising part is I am ready for classes to start. Each semester of classes brings me one semester closer to graduation. I am moving into my new apartment with three of my friends in less than a week, so therefore I have been shopping like crazy, (which in my opinion is the best part of moving out.) I will post pictures of the apartment as soon as I get everything moved in.

When you are a kid you can’t wait to grow up and move out on your own. Now that the time is here though, my opinions are a bit different. I will be home with my family every weekend without a doubt but it is not the same as completely living at home. It’s kinda funny though, because at this moment in time I can’t wait to graduate, get a full-time job, and get married. I know that when that time comes I will want to slow time down and spend a few more moments growing up, going to classes instead of work.

In all reality we have no control over time though. Time does not care if we are enjoying life or crying over it. Time carries on at the same pace no matter what speed we wish we could make it. There are moments that I wish I could pause and play in slow motion and other that I wish I could skip over and avoid completely. Too bad life does not work that way, but isn’t that a good thing? I think it is. If we never moved past one moment then we would never get to a happier one. If we skipped over the bad times in our life then we would never grow stronger in heart and soul. Without the fluid motion of time today, we would not be who we are.

Rock Pile Bindery
I have been on a search for the perfect planner and I think I have found it. This planner is handmade and I might be able to get it custom ordered with a gray denim on the cover instead of the brown. Another great part of this planner is that the dates are not already filled in, so you can start and end the planner whenever you want to.
