Shedding Some Light


I took a little walk at work today. There are some benefits of working on-campus at San Diego State University. One of them is being able to see something like the photo taken above. It’s a beautiful day here in sunny San Diego. The sun is beaming through the green trees, making a picturesque opportunity for me. I couldn’t resist.




I know. I’ve been away for a very long time. Life’s been treating me good, but I’ve also been very busy.

I went to Paris like I planned and it was all sorts of wonderful. I had a blast on my friend’s wedding day last September, and oh, I’m also in another one this year!

More trips are planned for the near future and I can’t wait to explore them!

The photo above was taken in La Jolla in San Diego. It’s a breathtaking place and one of my faves. Sometimes, I just need to remember to stop and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Baby, Just for Thoughts



I feel like everyone around me is either getting pregnant, about ready to pop, or taking care of their little newborn. I mean, it’s nice. It’s great, actually. I love babies; I love kids. It just hurts to see it happening when A- and I are trying ourselves. It’s been about 6 months of trying with no luck. It’s hard to see everyone else going through pregnancy, when we are here dying to have it be our turn.

When I was younger, maybe in my college years, I’ve always thought I wanted two kids, all before the age of 25. I’m now 26, turning 27, and am grateful that I didn’t have little ones yet. We have two dogs and they’re already a handful, so babies, during the last few years, could wait. However, after our wedding, I was full blown with baby fever, and surprisingly, it was A- who wanted to wait. He couldn’t say no to me though 🙂 Nonetheless, we’re still not pregnant, but everyone around us was.

I look at all the Pinterest boards of all the baby clothes, baby showers, and baby gift baskets, and my heart aches a little. When is it going to be my turn to plan these things?
