lately i've been pinning a lot of pictures that do with the outdoors & adventuring, while i have been waiting for spring break to happen, which is luckily right around the corner. a break from school is much needed right about now. i'm in the need for an adventure & to not think, at least for a few days, & that's exactly what we're getting. we're heading to joshua tree for some rock climbing & to my moms house in california for the rest of break. i cannot wait to be in the sunshine! also, if you haven't, make sure to check out my giveaway!

Spots is an autobiographical story about Judy's life being raised on a rural farm in South Africa during the apartheid. it is truly such an interesting & captivating story. i loved hearing what her childhood was like being raised in south africa during that time.

don't mind the banana all over his face
guys. cedar has been OUT as long as he was IN. it's pretty weird to think about since those 9 months of my life felt like they were forever long, & these 9 months have gone by insanely fast. i can't believe it. he's such a wiggly worm these days. it's so fun/tiring/exciting. he's a busy body, that's for sure. he doesn't sit still. he's crawling everywhere, standing up when he can grab hold of anything, tries to stand on tip toes, has started to do a funny crab crawl type of thing, has discovered the stairs & is really good at crawling up them.
he has 6 full grown teeth, 1 other tooth well on it's way, & another on the brink of breaking through.
he loves food. all sorts of food. anything he can grab hold of goes straight in his mouth.
& he is constantly babbling a slew of noises that sound a whole like like dada and mama, which is pretty adorable. plus, he just laughs at himself constantly.
i think he got that last part from me.
don't forget to check tomorrow for my first g i v e a w a y!

the thought of it makes me scared, but it will be good. change gives us opportunity to grow, to explore, to learn more about ourselves. changes allows us to become a new version of ourselves. a braver version. & it's important to be brave.
the other night as we were lying in bed i was telling austin all of my worries about moving. some of them are understandable, while the others are laughable. i literally said i was nervous because, & i quote, "where would i get my hair done?" i mean... as if that's a good reason not to move somewhere. it's seriously little things that are dumb like that, that make me nervous. how will i meet people? make friends? i have never really needed to make friends. i'm shy & i think i'm a bit awkward, so it really takes me a while to make friends. but it's figuring out those little things that are part of the adventure, right?
i know that we would both regret not taking an opportunity simply because it pust us out of our comfort zone & we are nervous. we both need to be brave & know that no matter where we choose, it will be an adventure & will all work out. so far we've heard back from 2 of the 3 schools he has applied to. we should hear back from the third within the next week & once we do we'll be able to decide what option is the best for us. it's crazy to think that in 1 or 2 weeks we will have to decide our future for the next 1-2 years. it makes me so anxious. we will just wait & see.
on another note, things i'm looking forward to:
spring break >>> my first blog give away (coming soon) >>>
going to disneyland >>> climbing in joshua tree >>>
finishing our garden boxes>>> summer >>>
