When life is good, I post less and less, even if I do take lots of pictures. That’s where I found myself this past week. I spent the week with my brother and his family about an hour and a half away. I took so many pictures but we were so busy that I didn’t have much time to post any! Because of that, I am going to share some here today!!! I already miss them so much.

This is the best that I’ve felt in a long time and being an aunt is so rewarding.
This Spring Break has mostly been about resting and quite literally taking a break from all the stress from school. So far my family has gone out to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie in the actual movie theater and I painted my room my favorite color!!! It’s been great, but I don’t want to go back to school!

This year the holidays were a little bit harder without my grandma here with us for our annual Christmas Eve get-together at their house, but through & through it was a very good holiday filled with laughs and good memories.
On the night before Christmas Eve we made Christmas cookies and listened to Disney songs and watched YouTube videos for an hour or more until 1am.
On Christmas Eve my mom & siblings & I all got together before we went to our grandparent’s house and watched old Christmas videos. First we saw some from my mom’s time (1994-96 I believe) then we watched some from my childhood (2002-06). I am so grateful for those videos. I got to see both of my late grandmothers again and hear their voices and see their love. I miss them both.
Then yesterday morning we opened gifts from my mom and watched A Christmas Story and shared laughs and ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast. We then went to my dad’s house and opened gifts from him & his girlfriend which was so sweet of them. We had tacos for dinner and birthday cake for Jesus (complete with candles and singing HBD to him). It’s been a pretty good holiday.
God bless all of you and I hope those of you who celebrate this holiday had a good one!

Today I was able to finally get the rest I’ve been needing this past week. I slept in well past noon, and it felt great. This past week I’ve been exhausted, both mentally & physically, and have been having a hard time focusing on my classes. While I didn’t do any schoolwork today, I did take the time and just rested. We also had our first fire in the fireplace of the season tonight, with Christmas music playing. It was really cozy with all the Christmas lights. I am so thankful.
So I may or may not lose followers by this, but today is an extremely wonderful day for the LGBTQ+ community and those who are in support of their fight for equality.
Today, the US Supreme Court struck down the ban on same-sex marriage nationwide, making it legal in all 50 states by a 5-4 vote.
I might get a little heat because I am both a Christian and a supporter of this community, but what is so wrong about loving someone? It isn’t any of our business what people do in their love lives. I am just glad that now they are able to get married and be recognized in all 50 states, because I think it’s a right.
I am so happy to be in support of this community. Love is love, and today, love won.
See you later for photo Friday!
