Perseverance and Hard Work

Have you ever wanted something badly? You stayed up studying, editing, working, and crying. One day you know what you are imagining is possible, and then you start having mixed feelings and need a box of Kleenex.  If you imagine it, it will become true. I watched my best friend go through flash cards and pages of notes for something she imagined- dinosaurs, spaceships, and photo booths.


I made it to the wall of fame.


“I’m not scary, but I’m fearless,” Monsters Inc. You are my greatest inspiration, plus I love boys who wear retainers.


Novia I will ride to the moon and back with you in a photo booth, a spaceship, or a flower car. Happy First Day!


Happy Birthday Luke!

I don’t know what it is like to have kids, but I imagine that the love I have for my nephews and niece is a great of a love a parent has for their children. I love that they are so innocent, but sometimes it scares me. Children are like a sponge, and if you teach them good or bad things, they will absorb both. I strive to be a good aunt to all of them and teach them all good things.

The day Luke was born, my whole perspective of children changed, especially when his personality began blooming. I don’t get to see him as often as I would like to, and when I begin to miss him, I begin replaying the Macklemore Thrift Shop song he sings along to.

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is super awesome.

I love you Luke! Happy Birthday baby!



Your Tia,
