Goodbye is a word I refrain from at all costs. I HATE saying goodbyes! See ya laters are really all they are though. I had to bid adue to many of my favorite people this week.
On my last outing with my family we took baby Sol to the Beach and Seth went surfing while Me and Momi chatted on shore.
We also made a delicious crepe breakfast. Jenny is moving to Jerusalem this upcomming semesester! She is one of the kindest people I have ever met. If she were an animal she would be a butterfly as she is so very soft, and gentle yet is so strong in all that she does (butterfilies may seem weak but the ones that actually make it out of the cocoon are top knoch). Jenny is also a graduate of culinary school so I love that she shares her many talents with me!
speaking of buterflies and cocoons. At times there are cocoon moments in my life when I feel anxious at the idea of standing still. It might appear I am just "loafing around" but really, underneath I like to think that I'm being prepared for something big.
“We all must have restful periods of incubation and calm. You’re meant to enjoy this time to relax and quietly grow, or simply catch your breath a while. Inactivity helps you gather energy so that you can take yourself to a whole new level in life. You’ll need these stores of energy so that, in the right time and place, you’ll be able to take off and fly high.”
My friend Brennan left this week too. We had kind of a funeral service for him on the day of his departure. We had everyone sit around in a circle and say a memory of him. RIP BRENNAN MOORE
If Brennan was a food he would be instant noodles. My Brennan memory was : I met Brennan walking to school one day listening to an awesome song, Brennan happened to be walking to school too, so we shared an i pod and were instant friend ever since!
Some things, most are so much better when they are shared. (It even works with Ice cream, which even tastes better when yours isn't the only spoon in the carton. Life is always better with a friend!
Monicas and my favorite pastime is snack time! Exibit A: here we are making the family specialty haystacks. I loved having a little sister here with me, and hate the idea of separation. But what a wonderful thing family is, that we are connected wherever we go.
Aloha oi! La la la la la, until we meet again!
