This week...


has been a rollercoaster...
...I had to say goodbye to my roommate tuesday night. She was leaving for the weekend and it was the last time I would see her before she leaves for her 2 month adventure through Costa Rica. Im gonna miss her so much.
...I also found out that a friend of mine died while serving in Iraq. She was a seriously wonderful person and the world did not deserve to loose her.
...I have been trying to pack for the road trip but it have proven to be quite the struggle. To say the least, it has stressed me out to the max.

But... is the day! When I am off work, we are taking off! The trip begins!
...we will be off to Eugene to spend the night with our families (and my best friend Rachelle). And in the morning...its off!
...first stop... San Fran!  Then down the coastline. I cant wait for the beach to help wash away this week.

Im so excited for our first road trip together!

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
