thank you, thank you

My 21st Birthday was Sunday, May 22nd and it was definitely one of the best Birthday's I have ever had. I want to thank my friends so much for making me feel special and making it so amazing. So many people came to visit me at the beach to give me a weekend that was all about me. I got to have two amazing nights of dancing, karaoke, and obnoxious "Birthday-ness." I wore a crown and was allowed to do whatever I wanted because if it's your Birthday, you can be crazy and it's cool. Thank you guys so much. I love you all!!

lovely love.

how other people have loved you.

So when you love another you are

sharing what other people have

created in you."

no death should be considered a victory.

The death of Osama Bin Laden is all over the news and while I could talk about the courage of those serving our country, or how it saddens me that these hero's are also subject to killing people, or what this means for our country, but honestly it is death and I think this Martin Luther King, Jr. quote my brother in law Scott brought to my attention sums up the event.

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Birthday presents?

I usually don't have anything to ask for on my birthday,(I LOVE SURPRISES) but it is my 21st, which is kind of a big deal, sooo I am going to list some material things that I would be down with.

If you know me....anything handmade, vintage/antique, or something with a story is always a winner for me
-my mom and I recently found this bomb ass 3d turtle stencil used to screen print fabric. It was framed and really awesome, but unfortunately, also pricey.

As for specifics....

-Tibetan Singing Bowl...I just think that it is really cool looking and I like the intention behind it.

-Any mineral or stone with a cool meaning or intention, such as a Poppy Jasper Stone. I really like the pyramid, flat oval drop, and a slab would be really cool to do something with.

-Raw almond butter...mainly because you get a deal when you buy 3 and I think the Living Tree Community is an awesome website with really pure products and dedication...check out their other nut butters, chocolates, (one is made with lavender blossoms!) and alive pestos.

- ANY of the chocolates that are a few posts below.

-Handmade pottery, but I am kind of picky so...I just really want this one awesome speckled bowl I saw at the state fair, it was so cool and an awesome shape.

- Indo Board...ebay.

Mainly I just want to be with my friends and have an absurd time just doing weird things because you are allowed to on your birthday, but my main request for the evening of my birthday, dancing. I also wouldn't mind a little karaoke. Then the next day I want to play on the beach all day and have a picnic with some lovely HEALTHY food.
