Favorite season

Good afternoon to my favorite people!
I spent my entire weekend locked in my room crafting, then spent today baking.
I felt so creative and productive!! I made at least 5 Christmas presents.
All in all it was a lovely weekend... How was yours?

What is your favorite season?


the little flowers popping up from the snow
Bringing out all your sundresses

the feeling of the sun against your skin
lying in the fields of flowers
tea parties in the grass

What season could beat all that beauty?

What is your favorite season??

3 favorite colors

Good afternoon you beautiful person.
Todays topic is my three favorite colors.
I thought I would cheat (only a little) and add a fourth, because if you know me
you know it is almost impossible for me to choose! whether it be bands, colors,
people, food, anything. I have a very hard time choosing.

My first color is called Fern.
It is such a calming color.
I will always be the most fond of greens.

My second is mustard yellow.
This is the most recent addition to my color pallet.
It is just so moldable, it works with everything and really can make
an outfit pop!

The third color is this lovely turquoise.
this is one of the most fun colors because it really brightens up any mood or room.
Also if you were born with those baby blues it really brings them out!

the last and definitely not the least color on this list is this dusty rose.
Another newer addition to my wardrobe, it is so soft.
I feel as though i am being super feminine when i wear it!

There you have my favorite colors. But, todays blog is not finished.
It has been one of those mornings, so I decided to reward myself with a cup
of tea and some knitting.
While I was knitting I came across this picture featured below.
It made me realize what I truly dream about, a world filled with books!!

May your day be filled with books.
May you find the color that makes you feel beautiful.
Now, go out and color the world.
I'm off to make my mother a blog!!

What is your favorite color?
How does that color make you feel differently when you see it?

My favorite person (times 2!)

Good morning my beautiful people!!! How was your evening? Mine was quite nice actually, I got to have a lovely meeting and talk about some issues that were really bothering me.AND!!!!!!!! Tonight is the night i have been waiting for quite some time! HARRY POTTER MIDNIGHT RELEASE!!!! Do you have your tickets yet? I hope you do.


Who is your closest friend?
Ok first of all I had a very hard time with this post at first. I have aways been one to have many friends and not one very close one. That changed this summer. I had some enormous family trials that resulted in my learning to lean on people like i never had before. Today I'm gonna talk about those two amazing people.

First, my best friend Jana!
Isn't she beautiful?
She was there the night that all the stuff went down with my family
She stayed with me even though she had class very early the next morning.
She will bring me sunshine when I'm blue.
She gripes me out when I'm being stupid
She even dressed as me for Halloween!!!

(below are Jana, Megan and me!)
She is one of my closest friends
I don't know how I could ever live without her now

Next up: My boyfriend BRETT!!!

He came to be in my life at just the time I needed him.
He is my protector, my rock.
He hugs me when I feel alone.
He makes me laugh when I'm down
He tells me I'm pretty on my ugliest days
He encourages me to be better than I am
He makes me strive to be the woman he deserves

He is my daredevil
He is my smarty pants
He is my genius
He is my pilot
He is the only one in my life who I know feels as deeply as I do
He truly is the love of my life
and even though miles may separate us
We can still look up at the stars and know we are sharing the same experience!

I love both of you, and couldn't do this thing called life without you
I am more than blessed to have you in my life and thank God for you every day!

You're turn!!
Who is your favorite person?
The one you wake up every day for.

Day 3- Favorite TV show

Good evening loyal followers! Today was pretty gloomy outside and in
my house so I took a note out of a friends playbook and decided to make
a list of things that would shake those down home blues. I thought it would
be nice to share it with you!!

And next on the agenda is the day three blog!!

What is your favorite TV program?

Ok so as most of you know I watch way to much tv for me to admit on here! I love
everything Joss Whedon has even touched (Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse,
Dr horrible etc.) I love Jepordy, weeds, Community, Castle, and How I met
your mother! But those all really pale in comparison to the show I want to
talk about today.
Boy Meets world has been my favorite show since I was a
little girl. It was our family program and we watched it every day! My sister and I
really bonded over some of the story lines, and we still have inside jokes and
quote lines from it to this very day. So, thank you boy meets world for keeping
our bond strong and giving us a movie about family friendship and the pursuit
of graduation!!!

love LYDIA

PS: What was was your favorite show growing up?
The one that got the whole family around theTV to watch it??

So.....I would like to apologize for the lateness of my newest post. I had a bit of a computer problem, and by a problem I mean that I have a huge crack across the screen! Oh joy! Do not worry fair followers, the problem has been remedied by a purple acer netbook! (its so pretty!!) Soooo onto day three!!

Talk about you tattoos and piercings.
Well this is an interesting subject, and I love that its number three. These are usually something kept private. I know for me my tattoo is only for me because I am the only one with whom it would have any meaning. (which is why I am not including a picture) It is of a sparrow done all in black ink with the words "you're free" written in script below it. I got this tattoo during a very hard period in my life. I had basically turned my back on my faith, I was deep into depression and alot of other things that i was regretting. I couldn't really see a way out.
One day I was at a group meeting with some friends and we were doing guided meditation. We were told to find our token animal and let it send us a message. It took me a few minutes to really get it. A sparrow appeared in my line of vision and told me simply "YOU'RE FREE!" I knew at once what it meant when I felt as if a great weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I knew that it was telling me that forgiveness is there if i would only take it. My guilt and shame, my burdens and struggles were just lifted from me. Birds will always be my favorite animal because of the freedom that they represent to me.

How about you? Do you have any cool tat stories, or fun piercing dittys??
