goodbyes are always the hardest.

this is it friends. a very sad goodbye to set sail with me honey…

i have been debating about this for a while now and i have decided to take a step back from blogging. at present i don’t have the time or energy to devote to this blog like i wish. posts have felt forced and uninspired which is not at all what i want.

for now i will be taking a step back to gather my thoughts and cultivate my creativity. i will be back- i’m sure of it. probably with a whole new blog that i will link to here. hopefully my absence will only be for a month or so, but i have no guarantees. when i do come back i want to make sure it is well thought out, worth-while, and has a clear direction.

this blog, as little as it is, and with most of its followers being my friends and family, has been an awesome adventure that has helped me grow as a person.

i want to thank everyone who took the time to check in here. i sincerely appreciate it.

 

with love,  alyssa

hello february

hello to hugs and kisses and date nights out. hello to midterms and feeling good and trying new things. to being bold and true and steadfast. to missing ones you love who aren’t nearby. hello to candy and dessert just because i can. to resolutions in progress and creative dreams becoming reality. to crazy adventures. to wild animals. to loving one another.

are you ready february? because i sure am!

life lately…

lately there has been lots going on here in santa cruz. here are a few snippits to catch y’all up…

i got an awesome new fishy water bottle (though presently missing, i am sooo sad!!!)

we have had flowers in the house all zee time- beautiful and lovely smelling.

it rained A LOT…

and then it was absolutely gorgeous!

thomas is growing a beard/mustache- to say i have mixed feelings about it is a bit of an understatement

 

we have been going to cheer on our favorite banana slugs (men’s volleyball, obvi!) in their awesome winnings!!!

 

alex and i made brownies for the team! i did a beastly banana slug in the frosting… mustache included in honor of the whole team’s pact to grow mustache’s for the season.

 

i started at the marine mammal center and i am soo happy!

 

i fell down on campus ha!! day 1 (monday) and then yesterday (of my knee, upside down)- you can take my word that the bruise is worse than the pictures show..

 

friday morning our whole little house got up to watch the sunrise for alex’s 20th birthday!!!(she is next to me in both pics). we got up early, well just before 7, and drove up to pick up thomas and then to this amazing look out on the east side of campus. you can see the whole monterey bay from there, and it was all filled with fog and just breath taking! man was it cold though! it was so great and alex was just the cutest! absolutely worth getting up extra early!

hope things have been going well for you as well.
