I found a few of my boxes in storage.
I hope to one day have all my things out of boxes and in a home of my own.
In those boxes I found a lot of old pictures and they brought back so many memories.
Seriously, where has the time gone?!

What’s so wrong with being happy?
She woke in the morning,
she knew that her life had passed her by.
She called out a warning, don’t ever let life pass you by.

My mom & I drove to Arizona to spend a few days with family.
We stayed in Prescott to spend time with Grandma & her 4 cats.
We watched movies, went to dinner, talked, and enjoyed the great weather.
I spent a day in Scottsdale at Grammary's.
Although it's a sad time for that side of my family it was good to be there and see everyone.
My cousin Kacie showed me around old town Scottsdale, which was fun & artsy.

I loved this

This art tree is made out of jeans

It was good to see Leon again

Yummy White Russian ice cream

On the way we drove by Lake Mead, it was beautiful

I'm loving all the traveling I've been doing and it's been great spending time with friends and family. Next week I'm headed to California.

Because love is all around you.

I love the movie Sleepless in Seattle.
I'm also loving spending time in Seattle/Washington.
Seattle is such a neat, hip, artsy city.
I love everything being surrounded by water and forest.
It's a bit chilly but beautiful.

Dan is working in Seattle so my mom and I decided to visit.
So far we've...

Had lunch in the space needle, it was so cool
and a great way to see the whole city

Saw the space needle at night

Visited Pike's Place Market

Walked over Deception Pass

Had a nice dinner with Mary, her sister Genna, and her boyfriend

& I tried on Big Foot's hat :)

There's still a lot more to see and do...


Early Friday morning my dad called with the news that Poppy Steve passed away.
In April he was diagnosed with lung cancer and a couple of months ago the doctors told him his cancer cells were shrinking so we thought that was a good sign. But unfortunately his heart gave out.
My mom and I had already planned to drive to Arizona on the 20th of this month thinking I would get to spend more time with Poppy.
I am so happy I decided to travel from Guyana to see him and say goodbye back in September.

Poppy Steve was a hard working, good man.
He was a jokester and loved to make people laugh.
He was a teddy bear.
He will be deeply missed and forever loved.

I know he is in a better place now and resting in peace.
