it's a process :)

all moved in with Marc and his cat Prairie - and Maku and Snow of course ;)
moving in with someone as an adult is such a complex thing or maybe because there are two other little hearts involved.
i have been going through a lot of mixed feelings; a sense of uneasiness within my calmness, happiness tinted with dismay, seemingly content but burdened at the same time.
yep. one of my few gloomy posts...but like i said happy but sad :)

i take solace in friends and family (and a little bit of alcohol here and there), ^.^ i find it soothing to listen, dance, and sing to my favorite music but i somehow find daily comfort in the simplicity and nakedness of what is around me. i like my furniture plain and rough, i like my cupboards barely full, my fridge almost empty. my walls almost bare. unembellished and unadorned. stark and primitive.
i do not like to display machine-made art or one that is suffocating under a piece of glass. i do not like to keep things in case i need them one day.
i am whining, i know. i am quickly learning about compromising. something i never had to do before. i don't know why, maybe because i shared similar views with that certain person i lived with throughout most of my adult life or simply because he spoiled me to death (until he got tired of it and left --heehee).

and now, as i hang framed prints and laminated photos :P, i look at pictures of my old place-- missing how my home was and at the same time feeling a bit triumphant that i am finally growing up and, well...compromising :) --> this is my effort to look at the bright side :D
and no, you will not see photos of my cluttered walls :)
oh hey, i went to las vegas the other week. maybe i should talk about that ;) or how i need to change my header, i've had that sea urchin pic for over a year now :)

family of 13

5 kids
8 grown ups
1 dog
and 10 gallons of water a day :)

it has been 5 1/2 awesome days. and no, i do not keep track by the empty water jugs
but it is so fun how consistent we have been with our water consumption ;)

9 more jugs of water to go...then we have to part once again :'/

we wanted a rumpus

and so we lit some torches

and waited for darkness

we played with fire

and waited some more

soon we saw Captain Jack Sparrow

and made the statue of Liberty run

some of us truly believed they can parkour

the beach, the moon, and the magic that only a summer night can bring :)

looking at old pics

...and wondering why i stopped blogging...

i never posted about Snow's boat and how much she loved it

she took it to the pool

the bay

the gulf

i never talked about Maku's garden

where he rode his giant tree

and talked to his shadow

i never mentioned our mustache

and all the fun it brought to our home.
the boat is now wrecked, the tree chopped down, and the mustache destroyed
but what the heck, we are still here. :)

just another day at the beach

grub :: seagulls :: shadows

boys jumping :: girls chatting :: umbrellas breaking

we dig holes : : we bury our legs

we play :: we hug

the beach :: we heart it :)
