Snapshots


Y'all seemed to have liked my Snippets of Life post, so here I am with a part two because life is full of lovely seconds.



//
The way water bathes everything in a calm blue hue when I dive underneath it, letting myself sink to the bottom and stay there until my lungs feel like they could burst, and I kick up towards the surface.

//

Coffee in the morning, my headache from not sleeping is still here but my fears of last night have fled momentarily.

//

Hearing a friend call me her best friend and realizing that it's okay to love people back, it's okay to be open.

//

The laughter of a friend. <3

//

Driving and not knowing what I am doing but somehow I made it there and back okay.

//

Looking in the mirror and seeing a clear face after months of hives due to an allergic reaction.

//

Soaking in the last moments of summer by staying up late, waking up late, and driving to my friend's pool to swim the afternoon away.

//

Straightening my hair for the first time since I was five and looking like a whole other girl.

//

Making birthday cards for friends.

//

Finding a cute dress.

//

Seeing someone I haven't seen in a while and us both saying, "Hey! How are you?" in unison.

//

Listening to terrible jokes and laughing at how horrible they are and how earnestly they're told by their tellers.

//

Do you ever hear a laugh so perfect or funny that it makes you laugh? Love that.

//

I may be anxious over some things but I'm joyful over many.

//

Somehow my siblings manage to be adorable and annoying at the same time... how?

//

Realizing that next year I'll be a senior and after that, I'll be out of high school and feeling anxious and excited all at once.

//

Baking.... or trying to.

//

Current mood: tired but hopeful.

    It's so encouraging to hear you talk about the positives in your life. I think it can be really easy to dwell on the negatives...at least for me :(((
