love this...

"I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter.
We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to prove ourselves to another or compete for love.
For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves."

I saw this on someone else's blog and loved it....always like finding new quotes...

Warning..I'm catching up, so this is a long one!!

All right, once again, I've gotten behind.
So, in the past 3 weeks....
I went to Chicago to see Lisa...who is a very cute pregnant sister with my other sister, Leslie, and my too cute for words niece, Kennedy.

Good times were had by all, especially my brother-in-law, Pablo, who is completely enamored with Kennedy and is going to be such a great daddy.

This past weekend, my friend Jana and I drove to Tallahassee for a college reunion of sorts, with folks who were involved with the Baptist Campus Ministries.
Big thanks to my good friend, Sarah, who worked her butt off planning all of this! I am bummed that I don't have very many pictures, but I'm taking it as a sign that I was too busy catching up with old friends to get out the camera!! :)
Jana and I also drove around campus to see all the new buildings, etc.
Here's my dorm from my freshman year...good old Gilchrist...(which now probably has a/c)

I am still working on all kinds of art projects, from scrapbooking layouts to nursery wall hangings...

I also recently took an online class at SIStv called, "Happiness is...."

Whew! I think that's it....I promise, I am trying to post more regularly!! :)
