a place I want to visit...

I have this thing where I love going in old churches.
(The Catholic ones are always the best.)
I love sitting quietly in the chapel areas...
I love the building's smell..
the way it feels to be in there...
the quiet...
the echo....
the windows...
it all feels so sacred...
so reverent...

a few of my friends and I always seem
to end up exploring these old type churches 
when we are visiting
other places

I have many very special memories
from some of these adventures.
(I view them as a sort of spiritual pilgrimage.)

so when I saw these pictures, 
I immediately wanted to seek out 
all of the hidden jewels of church buildings 
in Huntsville.

if you know of any, let me know-
maybe you will want to explore with me

(pictures taken by my friend, Kyle)

my favorite food...

May it be known.
I have a favorite food.
And it is Bang Bang Shrimp 
at Bonefish Grill.
I love it.

The end.

Other things I'm dreaming of...

Oh yes... the perfect house....

No, I am not really in a place where I can buy a house right now, but a girl can dream!!
 I inspected this house last year (in my days as a home inspecting assistant), 
and I fell in love with it.

In the country..... lots of land, autumn tress.... cute white house... 

Oh! - and inside the house! The interior was amazing!! Beautiful wood floors, a huge kitchen with lots of windows... The way the house was decorated was inspiring, and I left with my spirits lifted from just being inside. 
   The daydreamer within was quite active. Such a lovely house....

There are a few houses on my drive to and from work that I really like. If they were for sale, I would 
1) hope that I could afford it, 
2) hope that the inside would not be surprisingly horrible, and 
3) have no clue what the next step to take would be. Haha.

I have a lot to learn.

For now, I will continue to enjoy the home I have made for myself in my lovely apartment,
continue to find ways to pay off my student loan debt faster, 
and then begin saving up money for the whole home buying thing.
All in good time....

Sidenote: I am really enjoying my life right now, so really-- no rush. :)

long time gone

So... I haven't updated this blog in over a year. Yes, I am aware of that. I had a myspace blog for a while. I've since deleted that myspace account. I currently have another blog with a dear friend, Annie. I enjoy sharing thoughts with her. 

I want to have a super cute blog. 
Whether or not that happens.... we shall see. 
For now. 
Know I am going to try.
Even though no one looks at this anymore. :) haha
