The one nice day we had with the indians has been bringing american families together with gluttony ever since. I got to join in the festivities of a visit home for the past couple days. I also got to eat my fair share.
One thing I didn't do was join the mob crawling the streets of Abacoa. I've seen the benjamites spend their benjamins in previous years. Instead I opted to lounge at rum bar, play shuffle board at the snug, and catch up with friends I rarely get to see.

Sada, Tam, and my mysterious male model let me experiment with matt's polarizing filter on the beach.

and my delightful dog got a bubble bath.

All in all, I'm thankful this thanksgiving. Thankful for my incredible family. I'm thankful I got to grow up in such a beautiful place and more thankful that I don't live here anymore. I'm thankful that my life is going in the direction I want to take it. I'm thankful that I have choices, freedom, and a lot of lovely people to love.

I wanted to try the new version of iMovie, so I made a little video slideshow. :)

(This is the 2nd version with a sigur ros song in the background)

Matt's boss invented a big tunnel that pushes 150 MPH wind through it to simulate free fall. So, we got free vouchers to float around in one off I-drive! *two thumbs up*

I looked like a string bean in a potato sack, as my flight suit was three times my actual size so as to fit my actual height. This didn't bother me nearly as much as the smell I noticed climbing into the thick jumper, surely housing years of other fake jumpers sweat. While you only fly for two minutes it's quite the little work-out.

The ordeal takes about an hour between training, suiting up, and bumping into walls. The two one-minute flights are to simulate a real jump from 14,000 feet, and the pros confirm the realism. I've never dove from high in the sky, but I'm assuming the way my face felt as if it might peal off my face to be strikingly similar to the real deal.

All in all, I'd say our sky adventure was a great success and I recommend an afternoon in this tourist trap to any and all of my friends. :)


the universe is a joker!

p.s. -> my hair smells of bon fire. :)

2 yrs. in review

What started as a casual coupling has turned to the two of us for two years running.

He comes home with a whistle to attack me with a tickle, it doesn't get much better then this.

After he cooks me a mean meal and fills my heart with kind laughter we rest between the sheets, blanketed by the layers of our love.

Him being so tall makes me feel small and his smile puts me at ease.

This is the brand new edition, no more self-demolition; I let go of the frustration because it's all about creation now.
I've never been happier.
