today i feel defeated. i've been working towards something for weeks now, unadmittedly allowing myself to count on it, and then today, when it doesn't happen as i wanted (needed) it to, i am deflated. my mind's voice keeps telling me that it will all work out, that all my work wasn't for nothing, but at this moment i sure don't believe what i am telling myself.

at this moment,
i am enjoying the quite,
i am grateful for the ache in my quadriceps,
i am loving letting the dogs out without a jacket,
i am worried about money,
i am looking forward to trying a new yoga studio,
i am turning 27 is 2 days,
i am listening to the soft pur of a cat by my side,
i am longing for a day in the sun,
i am comfortable in my own skin,
i am content,
i am loved,
i am happy.

while browsing through etsy the other day i came across this item which again made me wish i was a bath tub "soaker".
images and item via
*and the fact that this etsy seller (pegandawl) creates their products with reclaimed wood makes it even more appealing.

i started a 'tradition' as a bridesmaid in another wedding last year where in i made a little scrapbook for the bride-to-be. i made up a list of questions about the bride and the couple and asked all of the wedding party to respond them. it turned out to be a very sweet and funny compilation of our thoughts of, and wishes for, our friend.
after i got the pictures and quotes put together in her scrapbook i asked zach why i never did anything like this for us and our memories (as if he was supposed to know). as i have said before, i am definitely not the most creative person in the world, but once i finally decide to create something i am usually a perfectionist enough to ensure that it looks decent. i do take more pride and joy from doing things for others, but i have decided that i need to take the time to create things for our memories. heck, our wedding and honeymoon pictures deserve a little more than an kodak envelope, don't you think?
i think the bride liked the final product...

i just love weddings. i seem to be in the middle of that time in life when weddings are occurring in high frequency. all of this celebrating is lots of fun, in fact, i think we should all renew our vows every five years or so to keep the party going! :)
