Just had to today. Definitely missing Seattle a tiny bit more today after seeing this.
This girl is certainly a happy, happy Coug fan on Apple Cup 2012!
I nearly paced a hole into my floor, probably gave my neighbors several heart attacks – along with myself for that matter, and nearly stopped breathing several times. I forgot how much I absolutely LOVE college football, especially the Cougs, especially on Apple Cup weekend. Nothing matters in a rivalry game. One team could be undefeated, but that wouldn’t matter. Rivalry games are not just like any other game in my opinion. They are something special and it truly does often times come right down to a final play. I am ALWAYS proud to be a Coug and will rock crimson and gray proudly until the day I die, but today my love is just a bit stronger and I am just a little prouder. Today we won the day for crimson and gray!
Go Cougs and xoxo,
So I know I technically missed posting on actual Thanksgiving itself, but I figure that I can be thankful and grateful really at anytime or on any day. And technically it is still Thanksgiving on the West Coast. So here goes…
This Thanksgiving I would like to take a moment to be thankful for the wonderful families that have taken me in no questions asked these last three years. I have been so lucky to have been adopted for Thanksgiving when I would otherwise be spending the day alone with myself. These fabulous people have taken me in sight unseen and for all they know I could seriously be the ultimate crazy. I have been welcomed into their homes, hearts, and family to break bread and share in their special Thanksgiving traditions. So, an extra special thanks to them today. Your wine has been plentiful, your turkey fabulous, and your hearts huge.
To my own family. I really just do not even know where I would be without you. Seriously. I know its been a tough last several months, but your unconditional love and support have helped carry me through my darkest days.
To my favorites out there. The same goes to you. Especially my most favorite Bobsey twin. No way would I be here without you. No way.
To those that have touched my life without even knowing it. I am so grateful for you and am trying my best to pay that forward. Your smiles, kind words, random winks even have brightened my days immensely.
And to my heart and soul. Phew, we have lived some life, but thank you for being as resilient as possible and for helping me find faith even on the worst of days.
Oh yeah, thank you to all the crappy, yet fabulous songs out there for making me smile, bob my head, and laugh.
Finally, thank you to those who take the time to read my thoughts in my own little corner of the web. The random likes, comments, and follows are so wonderful.
It’s funny. Homesickness or the ache to be around someone or something familiar. It’s funny how it comes and goes and when it chooses to come.
I am in a state of missing today. I have an ache in my chest that wasn’t there yesterday or the day before or even the day before that. That ache will slowly go away until the next time it decides to make an appearance, but until then, I will just power through it, like always.
Sigh. Yep, that’s right, it’s a sigh kind of moment and kind of day. Sorry to be a downer.
You know what I love?
Being able to give people directions! It is just a thrilling feeling to know that somehow, in a city that isn’t quite my own, I am able to answer someone’s question about how to get Harvard Square, where Newbury Street is, or what line they need to take to get to Fanueil Hall.
Makes me feel just a little bit more at home…
Happy Sunday lovelies!

I don’t know it it is the rain or the foggy haze outside lately, but I am feeling a bit homesick these days! Not like in a crippling type way, just a tiny little pang of wishing I was experiencing the spring in Seattle. Seeing all of my buddies. Seeing my family. Spending time at all of my favorite places. Eating at all my favorite restaurants. Being with people who know me, like really know me and my stories from before. Begging my mom to make lasagna for me. 🙂
I imagine this is on the normal side. I have finally kind of settled in a bit here. Life is moving along, my routine is in place for the most part. Which I suppose leaves more time to process everything and think about things. Still feel great about my decision to take this little leap of faith and make the life change, but I do miss home and all things familiar. I do however wake up every morning to the Seattle skyline on my wall so that is something I suppose.
Homesickness is a weird thing to me. Something that I think might always be present in some form no matter how long or how adjusted I get here or the next place that my life journey takes me…Texas visit anyone?! 😉 Like everything else, it is just one day at a time, one moment at a time, one large glass of wine at a time…
Love to you all!
