Choices and decisions and plans

a need to vent...

it is tough business planning a future when there are a lot of uncertainties. it hurts my head! 
visas and moving. adjusting and learning. school and jobs and careers. bills and debts. homes and loans. family and babies. good thing i have someone to make these decisions with but still...being an adult has its perks but oh to be a kid again! david and i need to make one of those giant "life" posters to help us get organized is goals and plans. has anyone ever made one before?

i think i found my new project. 


a belated shout out for mother's day

This is a picture of me and my mom, Carolyn, almost exactly a year ago. She was visiting me in Brisbane and I took her to a place called Lone Pine to play with some kangaroos and cuddle with some koalas. Anyways, I had never loved spending time with her like I did on this particular trip. I think it's because it was the first time I was away from home and away from her and the time apart had made me realize how grateful I am for her and how much I really missed her. Mom, I love you and I appreciate everything you ever did for me, and everything you continue to do. You are amazing. You're so strong and kind hearted, and you've taught me one of the most important things I'll ever learn...how to be a good, true friend. Thank you for that! And thank you for being my Mom. Miss you xoxo

Hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day! 

Thailand Part III {The End}

Somewhere in the ocean between Phi Phi Island and Maya Bay. Somewhere that is one of the most beautiful places i've ever been. 

 Maya Bay:

A top a mountain of a climb to the viewpoint in Phi Phi. So pretty and so worth it. Every drop of sweat and mosquito bite.

Thailand Part I - Phucket Zoo

We just got back from an 8 day trip to Thailand with the Hart's. It was my first time there and I completely fell in love with it. The beaches there are unbelievably beautiful, the food is so good, everything is cheap, and there are so many fun things to do! On our first day there we rented scooters and went to the Phucket Zoo. You will never see a zoo like this one lemme tell you! 

david and heath volunteered to be apart of the elephant show...
