Things I’m learning to appreciate

Listening to Patsy Cline late at night. 
Inside jokes with friends. Eating fresh sourdough bread at 11 pm. Being excited to see some of my favorite people.

Getting up in the morning  and drinking  fresh Honduras coffee. 
Leaving the cold north and going somewhere warm. Taking a whole stack of books on vacation with me.  Actually learning a song on my ukulele!!

Dreaming of my garden and spring, which doesn’t seem that far off anymore. 
I guess I’m just realizing that the little everyday moments  and dreams are actually the best. 

Life is good dudes! 

What are some moments you’ve
 learned to love and appreciate recently? 


Dreams. They can be sweet and beautiful one moment and the next cause such deep pain. Maybe you’ve  felt at times after so many painful experience  of silently hoping just to have the very thing that your heart longs for become obsolete. You start to question the point of having dreams. They never come true in the end.

Please don’t think that. Your dreams are special, unique, just like you. And oh how very near and dear to your heart they are. So don’t stomp on them. Can’t you see what  beautiful treasures they are!

But here’s the thing
Maybe it’s not that we shouldn’t dream, but rather be able to allow your dream to change, grow, evolve. Adjust the way you looked at it.. 
 Cause honestly our life is pretty much a changing dream.  


Okay so whose ready for a photo dump? no srly i took about 1000 pictures. so i am putting only my absolute favorites on here. lolol

i was in Central America for two weeks in January with 4 of my cousins. we had an incredible time together. so much laughter and good times. guys i know I've said this before but.... 

we literally bused everywhere. i got to see a new part of CA that i haven't explored before. there's this one city had this colonial Spanish feel to it! we went up into the mountains one day. i mean wayy up, searching for coffee. it was an incredible experience. pretty much everything about this trip was amazing. 
 fun fact. when i was ten my family actually lived in Central America for 3 months. 

in some ways it feels like a second home (other than the fact that my Spanish is terrible) everything is so familiar to me. the sights and sounds, all the different food that i crave like coconut water.

This church was built in 1200. And is one of the oldest in the world!Isn’t that cool!


We spent two days out by the beach snorkeling in the Caribbean. SO incredibly beautiful. 

this  probably my favorite coffee shop I've ever been too. their coffee is so good words can not begin to describe. lolol the Dirty Chi is out of this world amazing! And the mint Latte is to die for. 

If you have never eaten street tacos WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR LIFE.. seriously all I’ve been doing is stuffing my face with this incredible food!

 ALSO green mangos with salsa are unbelievably yummy. Just saying. And yes this post is mostly about food. 🙈 and coconut water. FRESH COCONUT WATER. 

I might do another post about what 
i experienced on this trip, and my 
thoughts on traveling. idk

also im home now and my suitcases still need to be unpacked. oh. and its -10 outside SO YEAH THERE'S THAT 
But guys life is so wonderful. and just the simple fact of coming home after an adventure and that feeling of this is where i belong. there's nothing like it.

PS. how are you my friend? 
what 3 things make you happy??
