love, laughter, adventure

the last few months have brought friends and acquaintances passing on well before their time. it's caused me to pause and reevaluate life.

forever i will move like the world that turns beneath me
and when i lose my direction i'll look up to the sky
and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
i'll be ready to surrender, and remember
well we're all in this together
if i live the life i'm given, i won't be scared to die

the life i'm given. these children..this man...they're all that matters.
once the semester has started i'll rarely see him.
work, class, study, ready
and i have to wonder if it's all worth it.

so much time spent apart from each other.
but he works so we can eat.
and it all seems like such a waste.

last night we went swimming in the dark, nearly 2 hours after our normal bed time.
and i don't regret a thing.

these are the things i believe in

the rest of life is made of all these silly details. details that don't really matter.


  1. I glad you could have such a fun adventure Vanessa. My husband works crazy hours at his job. He works seven days a week and Saturday's and Sunday's are mandatory. I miss him. I keep telling him we need to come up with a genius idea to make a million dollars. Hope the end of your summer is a good one.

    1. when you figure out a way let me know. i'll do the same for you. <3
