Canoe Race!

Just some more photos of the beauty I ignore in PA. Today there was a cute little canoe race that my family was in. Me, my mom, and best friend where the cheerleaders and picture takers of the day. It was a lot of fun!

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us

Hey Boho, Sorry I didn’t mean to scare you…having you think I was abandoning you! I would never! Life has been moving pretty fast since returning home from Florida. It is so nice to be home, on my old stomping grounds!

Lately things really seem to be falling into place. I was able to find a job quickly, I was accepted into a new school nearby, and I feel really happy with where I am in life. Leaving Florida was harder than I anticipated. With my random spurts of homesickness I thought going home would be the best, but saying goodbye to some friends was difficult .

If traveling wasn’t so expensive and the majority of people I had met weren’t transferring I would probably stay in Florida.

Though things are changing for the next school year, I am writing this post with a smile. Florida did exactly what I wanted it to do for me. One things for sure, I feel like I really own who I am since my travels.

I also learned that I can travel on my own, and I LOVE seeing new places around the world.

So I am going to end with a quote:

Joy is not in things, it is in us. 

Happiness is a thing to be practiced like a violin.

The days that make us happy make us wise.

The way to be happy is to make others happy.

Helping others is the secret of all success-in business, in the arts, and in the home.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Snow

It is snowing at home and here in Florida its 70 degrees. I had this vision before moving down, that I would end up spending the rest of my life here, in Florida. But honestly, I love snowy winters. They are apart of me. Things just aren’t the same without them.

At least I got plenty of snow when I was on break…
