Hello, hi! I am alive just in case anyone was going out of their head with worry.
Many lovely things have happened since my last post. Well, two things mostly: I spent a month in Hawaii, and I have a darling niece named Ella Beth.
First: Hawaii was nice, pretty, sunny, beach-y, etc. etc. But lacking the culture I expected. BUT, I hiked, I swam, I jumped off waterfalls. I drank wine, I ate great food, I slept in. I partook in a few enlightening conversations, fell in love with a Great Dane named Pongo, and ate fresh fish from the sea! I applied sunscreen constantly and came back whiter than I left. It was a nice experience... living in Hawaii for a short while. But, I find myself very happy to be on landlocked Earth again.
A secluded little spot we found on O'ahu:
But the big news is here: I am an aunt to a beautiful baby girl named Ella. She is precious. And, I know, as the aunt and godmother, I am obligated to say nice things about this child. But I really mean it. As a self-proclaimed-not-crazy-about-kids lady, I have found myself completely consumed with this child. She is such a blessing. Yes, a blessing.
I am a 23 year-old college graduate who is jobless and living in one her parents' spare bedrooms. I play with my puppies, I help with Ella, I send out resumes. This. is. my. life. And it's okay for now.
