How do you measure a year?

I'm taking on the "picture a day" challenge for a whole year. Ought to be good.

Cost Plus World Market, I love you.

By any other name would smell as sweet."

Here's your word of the day:
bombast |ˈbämbast|
high-sounding language with little meaning, used to impress people.
bombastic |bämˈbastik| |bɑmˈbøstɪk| |-ˈbastɪk| adjective

And you know what other word I love? onomatopoeia
Just say it a couple of times and you'll begin to feel the magic.


So I just figured out that this marks the 15% completion of this project. 365 days is a long time.


I love this stuff!

I really can't believe I've got this far into the project without taking a real picture of my school. You see, the University of Washington is quite photogenic.


You know what is a lovely combination for a Sunday night? Chocolate milkshakes and the Winter Olympics.

Happy first birthday Charlotte!


I would just like to say that I love this weather! A taste of spring in February is most welcome.


So after classes on Thursday I met up with Emily and Alexandra and we went and hung out at U Village. The weather was beautiful and my company was absolutely wonderful <3 This picture is from when we went into Barnes and Noble and read wedding books. (We couldn't help ourselves!)

This is my valentine from Emily. Jealous much?


This is (part of) my brother Anders. He loves Legos, hates potatoes, likes making up stories, dislikes worms, and is a pretty cool kid.


Monday was President's Day which meant NO SCHOOL! I got to hang out with the very wonderful Emily Birks and my sister. We saw Valentine's Day, made a "sand castle" cake, watched 17 Again, played Mario Kart wii, and has just an overall loverly day. :)

" 'And that same wise person told me that I'm the rule. That I have to stop thinking that every guy will change, that I have to stop thinking that...... I'm the exception...'
'You are my exception.' "

"Say you love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you
Now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you."

-Phantom of the Opera


"You may feel alone when you're falling asleep
and every time tears roll down your cheeks.
But I know your heart belongs to someone you've yet to meet.
Someday you will be loved."

'But how can you be sure?'

"Underneath the moon, underneath the stars, here's a little heart for you.
Up above the world, up above it all, here's a hand to hold on to..."

"I might have to wait,
I’ll never give up,
I guess it's half timin', and the other half's luck,
Wherever you are,
Whenever it's right,
You'll come outta nowhere and into my life....
I just haven't met you yet."
-Michael Buble

(In case you can't tell what this is and just to clarify in general I got the idea from

"The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love."
-Sara Bareilles

"I cannot make speeches, Emma," he soon resumed; and in a tone of such sincere, decided, intelligible tenderness as was tolerably convincing. "If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more."

Tonight the corps had a "Spud Night" Baked Potato Bar as a World Services Fundraiser and Danielle and I got to do Nursery. I had lots of fun with my little pals (Jonas, Eva, James, Mia, and Ella). <3
"(There's) nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be, it's easy. All you need is is all you need."


I went to the Q Cafe for the first time to hear Justin Klump and LOVED it (the cafe AND music that is).
And here's day 1 of 10 days of love. I've decided I'm going to try and have a picture and then a love quote that may or may not directly relate to the picture but will be LOVEly all the same.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Today I decided that February or not, I was wearing my new jacket. "Model" photos ensued.

Now here is something that brightens my day without fail.


So you know this whole celebrity doppelganger thing? Well, I really don't think I have one BUT check this out! These are two things that I have in my room that I think should count for something- especially the second one. My friend Olivia swears that if there was reincarnation, that it would be me in another life. :)

There are roughly 131 days until summer. But who's counting?
