Snow is a No!

I have this thing I like to do where I stand at the bottom of the stairs and look at the window next to my front door. You know that soap commercial where the guy tells you to look up and then you're some where amazing with the hot guy? Well mine is kind of like that. I look up and see the blue sky and imagine it's warm outside, there's flowers, green trees, and basketball games in my drive way. Then I look down and there's snow (don't worry, I just barfed a little too). Then I look up again and imagine I am about to take my dog to the park, go feed bread to goats, and go to yogurt land. Look down, back to reality and blah, there it guessed it...snow. I seriously am counting down the days until spring. I hate, hate, hate the cold!!! The moral of this story is that I can't wait for it to be warm here. I want the mountains to look like this...

and not this...

See what I mean?

P.S. I have a super special surprise coming! Want to know what I have up my sleeve? Well, you're going to have to wait. :D

I have hit a new phase in my life. Maybe I hit it awhile ago and have been trying to run from it, but now I am embracing it with open arms. I have this prominent urge to become a housewife. You know the kind that wears a frilly apron, and has a baby on the hip while cooking a miraculous dinner?

*courtesy of google images*

I think it's my subconscious' way of telling me "Jaz, it's time to put on your big girl pants." I am ready for a house full of kids, pets, friends, family gatherings, hubby's parties, and more. I have reached that stage in my life where I look forward to spending my day cleaning a house, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and taking care of pets/kids/hubby. I don't know if it is normal to just wake up one day and feel the need to change this much but it happened. If everything works out, we will be growing up. You know the kind of growing up where you have a mortgage, kids, careers, a car filled with random crap the family has left behind, and more. I want that, and I want it soon. So hopefully we can have our "real" wedding like everyone has been requesting, then get a house, start the adoption process, and whatever else comes our way. I don't know when all this will happen, but I know it's coming. I mean hell we have been together for over 5 years, it is about time we get our shit together and be normal. :D

But I promise my blog won't change, t won't become a wedding blog, housewife blog, mommy blog, or anything else. It will always stay the same, this happy little place I call my blog.

What does it mean to you? I have been thinking a lot lately about this insane emotion that can make you cry, scream, kiss, moan, and be a better person all at the same time. How is it that the same feeling that brought to my knees crying is also the one that causes me so much happiness? I think love has multiple personalities if you ask me. Sometimes it causes you to breath deeply, grip the sheets so tight, feel your lover's breath on your neck as it sends chills down your spine, and make the world stop spinning in that moment. Sometimes it makes you do stupid shit that you start to regret until you realize you can't change your past because the truth hurts and love causes a hell of a lot of honesty. Every once in awhile it makes you feel like you dance forever, hug a stranger, and care about every thing in your beautiful world. Just when you think you have discovered every face of love another one pops out and surprises you. In the past 5 years I have learned that I love hard, I have felt some of the deepest love I will ever feel. The same love that had me at hello, makes me bawl my eyes out. They say that love conquers all, but love can't conquer death and loss, don't get me wrong though. Love can't conquer death and loss, but it will survive it, love never goes away. Think about it, what does love mean to you?

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. As some of you know, I am due to have sme surgeries on Thursday. I start my fasting tonight, and continue into Thursday afternoon. I am not so mentally stable when I go without food for too long so I am hoping I can pull through. Anyways, that's why I have been missing. I will be back by Monday for sure, and I look forward to writing something fabulous for you all.

Twigs & Trees

The funny thing about life is that we always seem to be trying to change who we are. Change our identity, become someone else. Why though? Why not grow into a better version of you? I want to share with you all something that I wrote years ago...

"My heroes are trees. They're insanely inspiring. They make me question who I am or what I am doing. You see, trees are a lot like us, they start out little and grow to be big and amazing. We all start out this tiny twig, we get battered by our surroundings, pissed on, dug up and moved, and we just aren't that strong. As twigs poking out of the ground we look at the big strong oaks and birches around us and wonder what it must be like to be so majestic. Some of us can't handle the journey, we give up our fight and slowly die. Slowly but surely we start to earn our inner rings, that tell the world "Hey, I've stayed strong through all the piss, and storms!" and there is no denying that. Some of us get planted in fabulous gardens that are sheltered, where we get fed, and don't have to worry about much. Others are planted in not so welcoming places and have to fight every single day just to survive. No matter where we get planted we all have the same goal, to grow strong and earn our rings. After a long journey, we become these strong amazing trees. When we become these beautiful trees, the piss and storms don't effect us much. And every year we continue to lose our leaves and grow just a bit stronger than the last. Each tree is different, and yet beautiful in it's own way."

For the longest time I wanted to change who I was or what I was born into, but now I embrace who I am, and where I am. I inspire to do a lot, and most people don't think I will ever finish half the things I set out to do, because I am still a very small tree, but I will grow and earn my rings that tell you I finished and became exactly what I wanted to...a big, beautiful, and strong tree.

New (insert word here)!

2011 has been knocking on my door. 2011 wants my amazing-ness (add that to the list of words I have created) to come out and play. I feel it. The awsome-ness (that too) is aching to come out. I am craving change. I don't know what the change will be, honestly your guess is as good as mine. This year is going to be big. There's no stopping me. This cold from hell isn't even stopping me. I am going to stop 2010's revolving door and see what the inside of 2011 has to offer me. New job? New house? New family? New wedding dress? New dolphin? New boobs? New school? New readers? New hair? New spaceship? I have no clue what is headed my way but I am going to embrace the awesome and fight the not so cool with my awesome-ness. I think I have finally reached the point where I can't take anymore it-will-happen's, things-have-to-get-better's, and it-will-all-work-out's. I am going to make my life better. I will make things happen. I will make things work out. Get ready for fireworks and parades, baby! Don't believe me? Watch me. I am going to take the gray parts of my world and splash them with paint, glitter, and diamonds. It's going to be fabulous!

"I, Jaz, take you 2011, to be my fresh and fabulous year, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until 2012 do us part."

Baby Molly & Little Cliff

Hi my lovelies! How were your holidays? Do you all remember little Cliff? I hope so. We have until the 7th to keep raising money for him through the button on my sidebar. We are currently at just over $8,000. The goal is $20,000 so donate if you can! If you want to see more babies you can help out that have special needs jump over to Reece's Rainbow . Thanks so much for your help so far!

I have another baby I need to ask you guys to help out. Meet Molly.
Molly is just over a month old. A few days before Christmas the Campbell family's lives changed drastically. Molly's mom, Rebekah was out shopping when Molly's dad, David called. David went on to tell her that Molly had a high fever and he thinks she should come home. Rebekah comes home, and decides to take little Molly to the emergency room. Both parents are thinking it's just the flu or something along those lines. After hours of waiting and tons of tests Rebekah and David get news that would devistate any parent. Molly was diagnosed Christmas Eve with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells that was rapidly filling her body. Molly's Leukemia is progressing very fast and is extremely life threatening. Molly had to be life flighted to a different hospital (in B.C., Canada) that could handle the serious disease she has. This hospital is far and requires the family to move and David to quit his job to take care of their other children. Put yourself in their shoes, imagine hearing your daughter has a long and life threatening fight ahead of her and she isn't even 2 months old. I am asking you all to donate anything you can to help them stay with their daughter while she fights for her life. They are going to need help financially for housing, food, basic living costs, and Molly's medical expenses. Please click this link ----> Baby Molly's Story and read the full story, send our prayers and any money if you can. Thanks so much everyone, you have no idea what it means to me to have such great readers that offer their help/thoughts/prayers. I will be making a button for Molly that will link to her blog, if you have a blog or website it would be super if you can post it on your page!

On a side note I would like to thank you all I now have 10 followers and last month I reached 420 views! Thanks so much lovelies!!!
