Who I Am

Down on the farm2048.png

If I live to be a hundred
And never see the seven wonders
That’ll be alright
If I don’t make it to the big leagues
If I never win a Grammy
I’m gonna be just fine
Cause I know exactly who I am

I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It’s all a part of me
And that’s who I am

So when I make a big mistake
And when I fall flat on my face
I know I’ll be alright
Should my tender heart be broken
I will cry those teardrops knowing
I will be just fine
Cause nothing changes who I am

I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It’s all a part of me
And that’s who I am

I’m a saint and I’m a sinner
I’m a loser; I’m a winner
I am steady and unstable
I’m young, but I am able

I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It’s all a part of me
And that’s who I am

I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It’s all a part of me
And that’s who I am
That’s who I am

Lazy Weekends

Some weekends are meant to be lazy. Let the laundry pile up and leave the bed unmade. Just take some time to unwind and say “F*ck it”… ūüėČ We all deserve some time like that.

.Strip it Down.

Snapshot_015edit 2DONE.png

He squeezed her hand tighter as they reached the barn. She had a momentary thought of what is he nervous about, then quickly smirked the thought away. There wasn’t a sense of nervousness between them. There never has been. Come to think of it.. there wasn’t even the giddy butterflies. That thought calmed her completely. “Are you ready?” He whispered next to her ear. She grinned, “Yes sir.” As the doors began to open, her eyes followed the trail of petals to a candle lit dinner for just the two of them.

He led her to the table and went to pull out her chair when she pulled him back to her. He slid his arms around her waist and looked down in her eyes while carefully tucking a strand of hair behind her ear. The music was soft but she heard the words……..

“Let it fade to black
Let me run my fingers down your back”

It was that song. The song. The song that describes how it all should be. How it is. The music was still playing. She felt him begin to move their bodies. Just as the chorus hit, He spun her around and pulled her close, squeezing tighter. That made her grin. She began to think of the words. “Strip it down, strip it down.¬†Back to you and me like it used to be.”

What is it to strip down? Strip down and let everything go. Letting your guard down, allowing the person to see every side of you completely. The good, the bad, and the ugly. To be vulnerable, opening up and laying it all out on the table right then. No secrets, No regrets. Strip it down and bare your heart and soul. Strip it down and let all of the past go.¬†He leaned in close again, the bridge of his nose touching the top of her forehead… “I think the dinner will have to wait”

“Strip it down, down, down
Strip it down, down, down”

Vacation Surprises

Snapshot 2_008

They just arrived at the villa and already Cady was eager to get to the water. “Slow down a bit. I promise it will not go anywhere all week.” Addy smiled and felt the buzz of her phone in her pocket. Opening the text it read, “Be there soon Addylove ” She quickly responded.. “Well hurry up, but be safe¬†” She closed her phone, placing it on the marble counter before heading out to the boardwalk. “WOW!” Squeals echoed through the dunes, “Momma Look! … but what kinda bird is that…,” Cady looked up at her curiously. She smiled back down and softly responded, “That would be a pelican. They eat fish but not Nemo, remember?” She nodded quickly and grinned more. “So who is this surprise persons?” Addy laughed and heard a faint sound of the door closing on a car. “Well let’s go see.”

Snapshot 2_002

Cady raced down the boardwalk and around to the front of the house and squealed louder, “Miss Charlotte!” “Well, Hello Miss Cady. How are you?” “Thank Goodness you are here,” Addy grinned, “She was just asking the millionth question of the day wondering who could also be coming.” The three of them exchanged hugs, helped Charlotte unload her bags from the car and went to explore. While on their walk, they came across a cozy beach cottage and decided to get a photo marking their first day. Luckily, a passing stranger offered to take it for them in exchange for what has brought them all to the island. Addy looked at Charlotte, Cady looked at Addy, and Charlotte looked at Cady…. They all three laughed and said loudly, “Girl time!” “But no baths… Just the baths with the fishes..” Cady quickly added. Addy shook her head.

Snapshot 2_005

The day was coming to a close. Charlotte offered to try convincing Cady that a bath was a good idea so Addy decided to stop and enjoy the scenery for a while. “I’ll be in soon.. and Charlotte…,” She turned around quickly, “Yes?” Addy smiled, “Thank you for coming, and thank you for being you.” Charlotte grinned at her, scooped Cady up, and headed inside. She found a spot on the steps and took in another deep breath, then exhaling slowly. What was in store for them next?

Broken

Just know that everyone is broken sometimes

Snapshot2.png

There are times when we just aren’t okay. It doesn’t help knowing it is temporary. Counting our blessings doesn’t work in those moments either. It’s one minute at a time rather than one day at a time. Breathing may be the best you can do. You don’t need to be fixed.

Snapshot1.png
Maybe.. You aren’t broken.

You are just going through a messy patch. You will find your way through it. We always do. But for the moment.. feel what you want to feel… You are allowed to feel. Then…. we can get up and brave the day.

Heartbeat

I love it when we’re at a party in a down-town crowd
But I can hear you call me baby with the music up loud
Red wine, good times, no I don’t mind being with everyone else
And then there’s nights like tonight that I, I want you to myself

Snapshot11.png

And I wanna feel it like a kick drum, beating faster in your chest
I wanna feel you holding onto me and make me hold my breath
You pull me closer, my head on your shoulder, baby we won’t beat the song
We’ll make a fallen star wish, one more slow kiss, what are we waiting on?

Snapshot3.png

And tonight I wanna drive so far we’ll only find static on the radio
And we can’t see those city lights and I love the way you look in a firefly glow
Saying everything without making a sound
With a river rolling in the background underneath the harvest moon
Standing on your shoes in my bare feet, dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat
And we’re dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat

Heartbeat ~Carrie Underwood
