shine bright like a diamond...


this morning i inhaled, what felt like, an entire disc of face powder. 
it was awesome...and by awesome i mean it sucked real bad. 
this week has been tough...for many reasons unrelated to the condition of my sinus cavity 

finally today, i dug deep, looking past all the obvious pooey things going on, and i realized the heart of all my doom and gloom.
 i haven't seen the sun...or my people for days, and my heart is sad for it. 

 oh, how we laughed, and laughed, and laughed over the holidays. it was perfect, and lovely and priceless....i miss it, and i want it back...

our christmas eve {afternoon} was spent on the ice....it was totally baller!
we walked away with only a few minor injuries, including one or two wounded egos.

key to happiness...

DSC_0389 DSC_0392 DSC_0397 DSC_0402

this past weekend i headed to boise 
for a visit with my people 
and to see my beautiful niece, anna, baptized 

 my rock star sister, sarah, came bearing gifts... 
RED VINES...5lbs worth (among other things) 
we enjoyed them thoroughly... 
it was happiness on earth

though your heart is aching DSC_0889
for the past couple of days
i have been looking at the last pictures dad took
for the first time in my life
i have looked---and pondered images
from the photographers point of view

what must have dad been thinking to see us all run and flutter about him?
how he must have longed to chase after the grand kids
to throw them in the air
to dance, to play, to move without pain or struggle

oh, i long for the day when i will be able two-step with my daddy

i miss him something fierce
but his life, his love, and his spirit continue
in our hearts, our minds, and our smiles

love you dad...
