.:A Little About Myself:.

♥ I'd like to think of myself as a very simple type of person, I only need my family and friends and that is about it. The other things life has to offer, such as the material, are nice, but are not the essence of life. As much as I am simple, I am complex. I look at the world with awe and with the desire to learn as much as I can about others and about life. Life has many things to offer us, and it gives us very little time to understand it. So it is with that viewpoint that I try to approach everything that I do. I try to accept what life sends my way, and I try to take a lesson from everything that I have experienced. I believe that every interaction that we have with others is for a reason, and every person we have met will have some sort of impact on our lives. It is our responsibility as humans to learn from each other. As you can see, maybe I read too much into things, or maybe I don't. Regardless, that's me...simple huh?.....*Peace*

What Time Is It?

WE SURVIVED IKE....

Okay I know it's been forever since I last blogged but I've had a lot going on. Well I guess as you can tell My family & I survived Hurricane Ike. We went 5 days without power. It was so hot. I tell you what that made me appreciate all the things that we have here in this Country a whole lot more. I couldn't imagine living that way my whole life. Well below are a few pictures I took. I stayed at my best friends house during the hurricane, but when it got bad we went to Rancho Viejo (yes you read right) Tony's parents know the owner real well. So we stayed & slept there we tried to atleast. Oh and as for my family they stayed at the First Baptist Church. Please just pray for all the families that have lost their homes and for the families that have lost someone due to Hurricane Ike. That's it for now. Later & God Bless!

This is what rancho Viejo looks like with no power.

This was outside the window in the room I was sleeping in at the Alvarado's house.

This one too. I'm glad we got out when we did. It fell in there neighbors yard.

This tree is at my house on the road. It was crazy because the night before this picture was taken my dad had moved his truck from that area where the tree fell.

That was a big 'ol tree.


OH AND BRANDY IF YOUR READING THIS I MISS YOU!!!! =)

What an adorably cute blog- I love polkadots and I love lime green. What a cute combo-

I agree that 5 days without power is a pretty interesting predicament, isn't it? Rancho Viejo in the dark! WOW! Yeh but could they still make a killer quesadilla? !!
