"the city looked like a diamond, finally lit after years of darkness.."
It just feels like everything is great right now. I think I’ll just freeze time where it is right now :) I can’t remember the last time I have felt this content. It’s amazing.
Today, ive been able to write letters to my boys at camp, I got to talk to a nurse from ww2 (which was so cool to hear about her experiences), and I got to spend time with my best friend and just talk about life…
so i dont exactly cook.. but i have to make these for someone, so i thought this would be perfect :)
PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. combine flour, oats, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into creamed mixture alternately with pumpkin. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-13 minutes or until lightly browned.
i like: smores, baseball, painting, shopping, traveling, big dogs, nommin’, laughing really hard, jam sessions, photos, museums, people who are laid back, the color green, printmaking, cartoons, the beach, girls nights, waffle house, and life in general.
i dislike: BIRDS, people who freak out over small things, negativity, olives, pollen, an uncharged phone or ipod, obnoxious people..etc.

its weird that ive been getting ready to apply for college… getting things in order, taking my ACT, sifting through college mail one by one, applying for scholarships so i can pay for school..
i feel like everything is happening so fast! on one side, i just want everything to stop where it is, enjoy the moment i have. but at the same time, i am SO excited for my future. i really think i am ready. im going to have to work my ass off for it, and there might be some frustration and tears involved, but its time for me to be on my own. out there doing what i love. theres only so much you can do in one place.
now that ive rambled a sufficient amount, i think ill sleep <3
