Time for Change


I know, I know. It’s the 16th of January and my layout is still Christmas trees and falling snowflakes. Okay, maybe the snowflakes are gone now, but I can pretend they are still there. I love the feeling of all things X-massy. It’s hard for me to remove anything related to Christmas decor at the end of the holiday season. I find it depressing.

Because I deal with anxiety and depression on a day to day basis as a part of who I am, I find in myself feeling something beyond my usual low recently, and gotta at least make a little fun of it to help me get by. I’m forcing myself to get rid of this layout and some of my own home decor by tomorrow! 🙂

Anyway, on a brighter note, I had the wonderful privilege of going to see Lady Gaga for her Born This Way Ball Tour both on Friday and Saturday at Roger’s Arena in Vancouver. I have to say it was one of the most exciting, interesting and creative shows I have ever seen, and I have been to plenty of concerts in my life (so far anyway!). Miss Gaga was ever so sweet to the crowd, always speaking to individuals in the audience, and at one point pulling a few fans up on stage and giving them hugs and kisses.

Here’s a few pics:

Dedicated to Sandy Hook Elementary Victims


Last night my boyfriend and I were decorating a little gingerbread house village. While we were doing it I was silently thinking about the little one’s who were sadly taken away from the world last Friday. Did they get to make a gingerbread house this year before Friday happened? I’m sure the teacher’s who were killed enjoyed doing fun Christmas activities like this with the kids at school, too. I know as a preschool teacher, Christmas was one of the times I had the most fun at work with the kids. When Sandy Hook happened, I thought of my old preschool students and imagined them in that situation. Horrible.

I’ve decided my Gingerbread town will be dedicated in memory of all the Sandy Hook victims, students and teachers alike. Your lives have meaning, and your memory will live forever in so many hearts and minds around the world.

Whenever I eat a piece of this Gingerbread I will think about you, and hope that you are at peace wherever you are now.
