i should be at camp but i'm posting instead.

{breaking the rules of posting once a day, even if anna did for me.} 
for the past week, i've been in the middle of nowhere, scooping over one hundreds gallons's worth of ice cream for overly-excited children and getting undignified for Jesus Christ. due to changed term dates, though, i'm home for a week, and then it's back to camp again on monday. and get this: fireflight's coming. so obviously i'm a little bit excited.

when i got home, i did the usual. drank a glass of water; put my suitcases upstairs; read all of the blog posts i missed. and then i saw it. four hundred and four. such a funny number that i'm not even close to getting used to; almost like a cupcake just begging for you to eat it. to take that first impulsive lick of the icing and just sink your teeth into the fluffy sweet goodness.

i mean, goodness goshbubbles. that's a lot. a lot of you guys. a lot of cupcake-lovers and goshbubbles-users, and i love each and every one of you. i posted a thank you note before, and i'm doing it again, because without all of you, i probably would've long since deleted this blog.

so now, it's late at night, i've endured my mother screaming over various olympic athletes, eaten a box of blackberries, taken self-portraits of myself in the fading golden hour, and video-taped my parents for america's funniest home videos {yolo, maybe?}. thank you all. so. so much.

-kiss kiss kiss, sherlock-
{pea ess: so, hey. one of my old swim-mates? yeah. her name is micah lawrence. and she's going to the olympics. pretty cool, don't you think?}
{pea pea ess: one of my best friends, audrey, is currently in the hospital for appendicitis and a cyst. she had surgery this morning and is due to be released tomorrow. please lift her and her family up in prayer, as they all need it. i'll be visiting her tuesday!}
{pea pea pea ess: still having my guest posters post this week, and i'll schedule posts for next week. nice to have a break, yeah? yeah.}

  11. great post! i just wanted to comment informing you that my old blog that you followed has been moved to a new blog, www.kelseyarkills.com, and since i can't move all the followers to the new blog, i was wondering if you could think about following the new one. thanks so much!


sometimes i do not understand why you guys like me so much, but the fact that you do (and that you keep coming around) makes me happier than you can even imagine.
