Oh, the happiness!


I've been waiting FOREVER to have a new blog header.
(I feel like I can breathe again! Yay!)


With the help of my good friend, Lindsay, we accomplished this today.

She came to my city of residence and we played all day long and had a super fun photo shoot with each other.

Now we are going to have a sleepover! Just like the good old days.


And as for the quote, "It's just life... so keep dancing through."......

Wicked came to Utah a few months ago and I had the pleasure to attend. I had seen the musical in New York when I was a Senior in high school and listened to the music endlessly. I love this show for the message it gives, but the words to "Dancing Through Life" didn't hit me until the showing in May. Fiyero sings his "mindless and careless" attitude about life, but that one line got me thinking. "It's just life... so keep dancing through." I don't think life should be thought of as if "nothing matters," but I do think people take life too seriously sometimes, including myself. Life is meant to be enjoyed, loved, filled with happiness... We will encounter hardships, trials, sadness, but those only makes the dance more lovely, deep, passionate, and beautiful.



So this is me...


just dancing through.
