Big day in New York today as we had an earthquake! If you can call it that. Yes, the ground did tremor, no damage, some felt it and some didn't. If you have to ask everyone if they felt the quake then my thought is that it probably wasn't a legit earthquake. Do you think the people in Japan were like 'hey, did you feel the earthquake?' They were probably more like 'hey can you get this cement block of my chest so I can breathe?'

The news ate this up. There was live, "breaking news" coverage for about 3 and half hours on eyewitness news. It went a little something like this.. there was a tremor in the area from a 5.9 earthquake out of Virginia. No injuries, No damage. No tsunami threat. Story over, right? wrong. This was probably the most repeitive series of news reports EVER. People had to go home because they were too traumatized. I get it, in NYC everyone is afraid of terrorism and I can imagine how scary the initial rumbling probably was for the people in buildings but a mental health day? come on. In the hospitals we don't get that luxury. Even if the world is ending we are not allowed to leave. They shut down airports for awhile, too. I'm no expert but I thought the air would be the safest place during an earthquake.

Everything aside it was my first earthquake, I can say I've experienced one. I've had enough now. I hope it was my last.

I Know

..I know when we are snuggled on the couch watching a movie
..I know when we hold hands as we fall asleep
..I know when I miss you everytime we are apart for even the shortest time
..I know when you make me walk on the inside of you when we are in the street
..I know when we find each other to be the funniest people in the world
..I know when I feel my absolute grossest and you tell me I'm beautiful
..I know when I look at you and I still think you are the most handsome man in the world

All these things let me know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I am exactly with who I am supposed to be with. We are very lucky to have found each other in this crazy, beautiful world. All these things I know..

I feel so blessed to have the friends in my life that I do. Friends come and go but if your lucky you will have a few for life. I have a solid group of girls that I know I can rely on for anything. I feel like I have known them my whole life. I always say I wish I had a sister but I forget that I do in each of them. Like sisters, sometimes we fight but it's comforting to know we will always talk things out, we always make up, learn and move on better people. We have truley grown together over the years. Real friends don't let anything come between them. Like family I also take them for granted at times. I'm making more of a conscious effort to never take them for granted and to remind myself how lucky I am to have them in my life, to live close to them and get to spend the time with them that I do. Afterall, there is no fun quite like the fun you have with your best girlfriends.

This is just a little shout out to my girls..I love you..I want you to know how blessed I feel to have you in my life..thank you for just being know who you are ;)

I dont talk to my father..for those of you who know me well this is not news..we had multiple falling outs and it came to a point that I decided it was healthier for me not to talk to him at all because everytime I would, it ended badly..I struggle every year on this day whether or not I will say happy birthday to the past it has been something that I have done through text message or email with limited response.

This year I struggled even more and I realized it shouldn't be so hard. I've figured out which relationships in my life are worth fighting for and which are is not worth fighting for something that has nothing to is not worth stressing over someone who doesn't think twice about you. So this is the new approach I am taking..I used to care..I used to let it effect me..but from now on I will NOT stress over anyone who does think about, care or love me is simply not worth is simply a waste of time..

Instead I will focus all of my love and attention on those that matter..those that think about, care, and love me back and also those that need me's not worth the time and effort to try and make things happen with those that dont want it..I'd rather look in other places where it matters and fill the void with love, friendship and giving...

there is a new website called It is so much. I have to thank Laura for introducing me..It's kind of like Oprah's dream board brought to a whole new level. You decide on your different themed boards, it can be anything you want and you can take your pins from other people's boards or anywhere on the internet. It is kind of hard to explain so maybe you should just take a look. I only have four boards so far but you'll get the idea :)
