Sometimes it isn't until you have to be, that you realize just how strong you are.
Sometimes in the midst of the chaos, stress, and sleepless nights you all of the sudden find peace.
Sometimes you come out of the other side not even realizing that you have made it through.
When all you want to do is give up, or change direction sometimes you just have to keep going.
To keep going is to fight for your dreams, to keep going is to grow.
It is important to know when to "hold em" and when to "fold em."
But it is also important not to let go of things too soon.
Be diligent in your work, prayer, meditation, thoughts, as hard as they may be.
Be thoughtful in your choices.
You might end up being a strong you never knew you were.

Diligence, Mindfulness, Strength,

The Normal Tag

So Darren and I thought we would test if we were normal or not, and while we are still not sure if we are or not, you can judge the results:

The questions if you are interested in finding out if you are normal or not:

1. When washing your hands do you put soap in your hands first or do you rinse them in water?
2. When you're eating cereal do you pour the milk or cereal in first?
3. Do you wet your toothbrush first or put toothpaste on it first?
4. How do you cook an egg?
5. When you log onto your computer what order of social media sites do you go on?
6. When you go to Disneyland what is the first thing you go to?
7. Bedtime. What's your routine?
8. Do you take showers in the morning or at night?

OC Fair 2014

It is fair season in Southern California! I love going to the fair! This year I went to opening day at the Orange County Fair. I went with my boyfriend and his friend visiting from out of state. The fair can be so fun with the animals, crazy food, rides, and games! It was kinda cute that my boyfriend and I went back since it is where we went on our second date last year. 

Petting zoo ducks- they wouldn't leave each other's side!

Baby goats are my favorite, even when they are gnawing at my boyfriend's shoes.

Baby alligator in the creepy crawly section of the zoo animals,
not my favorite, but he's kinda cute, right?

That would be the boys I went with.
Trying to give me a heart attack riding that crazy ride!

If you can make it to a fair this summer, my suggestion is that you go and have a blast!
