Free Hugs!!!

I think this is an incredible idea. I love hugs!!! I mean, who doesn't love a good hug?
Here's my take on it. If we each gave out a couple "free" hugs each day, I think the world would be a better place! You know when you smile at a stranger or a stranger smiles at you... That warm feeling you get? You think "Man there is some good left in this world"
Imagine what they would feel like if you gave them a "free hug". Despite the fact it may be slightly awkward, they may think your mugging them or worse... Let's give out free hugs.
Instead of just running up to people and freaking them out...
Lets grab some sticks and cardboard, love em up with glitter glues and hearts... And stand on the corner. WHO'S WITH ME??

What carpet??

This is a sad attempt at organization.

Background: I love crafts. Glitter's, glue's, sequins, buttons and the like. I have a three bedroom apartment, with yes... Just me so...

If it doesn't move or go bad, is a color or sparkles... It ends up in this room. Cardstock, tissue paper, paints, decorations for every holiday imaginable and a little extra nonesense.

Now that I have had to consolidate another bedroom into this one (Im getting a roomate in a week, YAY) This is the outcome of a big huge mess of crap. Sparkley colorful crap that I now have to organize. At least this will keep me busy until the roomie moves in.

Im going to make him craft with me :)

The Break Up Bottle.

It has been sitting there...
Haunting me.

The Break Up Bottle.

A 2004 Vintage bottle of merlot. It has gone untouched for many years... Until

-Insert Dramatic Music Here-

The Breakup.

I know I know, It doesn't sound that bad; but as soon as I twisted out the cork, major guilt set in.
This bottle was a gift from a dear friend. A friend that had been overseas for years. It has been wrapped up tight and handled with care, each time I moved; Hidden away from roomates, dusted and admired. And now in one moment of weakness and pure desperation for a drink of fantastic grape comfort...

More tears, more sobbing. I did it. It is opened... Can't turn back now. So what did I do? Yeah, You guessed it; I drank a glass every night last week. And the last glass I poored still rests in my favorite amber colored wine glass.

Does that mean I am over it?

A new beginning.

Today I start fresh. I start new.

Where today ends and the rest of my life begins. I will now remember that there are bigger things in this life that I can wish for myself.

In life we long to love. I long to live & love myself.
