raindrops like diamonds

i love rain.

tuesday was full of showers on and off all day. here are a few shots from when the sun was coming up on that beautiful day. :)

"As for me, I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause, who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number: He gives rain on the earth and sends waters into the fields."
Job 5:8-10

this is good, very good.

so i got home from school one day, and was in the mood to make something delicious for lunch. and that i did. :D

this is just some regular, lightly buttered, sourdough bread. i put two, big slices of freshly cut tomatoes on each piece. some italian herbs, a few pieces of this really, fancy pepperoni (i have no idea where it came from...must have been on sale!), and a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to top it off. put it in the oven for, eh, 2-3 minutes, took it out, and voila! it was quite scrumptious. :)

oh yes, a bit of parmesan cheese would be great with this, too.

another very good thing, is the season of spring. hehe, that ryhmed. :)

spring and summer are my favorite months. and not just because my birthday happens to be in spring, or that there isn't any school in the summer meaning i get to play ultimate frisbee EVERY DAY!

ok, maybe those are the main reasons.

but really, i love this time of year. all of the trees start budding, flowers are popping out everywhere, (meaning lots of photo opportunities!) and the weather is simply gorgeous. :)

i know most people call these weeds, but i think that they are beautiful. when i was little i would pick millions of them, (or maybe like, 20...) and make a bouquet for my mom. she loved them. :)

well, that's all for now. :) happy pi day to all you math fanatics!

"Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all of his splendor was dressed like one of these."

i miss us

so, i have these friends. their names are Haley, Jayla, and Aubree.
let's just say, i'm blessed.

these three girls have been a constant source of laughter, joy, comfort, and love. Haley and Jayla are sisters, but to me, we all are. they recently moved from the south all the way up to the cold state of michigan. that was one bummer of a day. but even though there's quite a distance in between us now, we're still as good of friends as ever.

Haley and Jayla got to come down to tennessee for spring break. the four of us had a blast, as you will be able to tell from the pictures. :) it had been 9 months since we'd all been together.

this past week of being together was way overdue. but we made the best of it. :)

Haley, me, Aubree, Jayla
whenever we get together, it's like they never even moved. we pick up right where we left off. these girls mean so much to me, and i'm extremely thankful to call them best friends.

love you guys,


"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends."
