repeating old words.

Listening to: Live it Up by Group 1 Crew.
Quote love: “One was a book thief. The other stole the sky." Markus Zusak, from the Book Thief.

I began and finished the Book Thief this weekend. I was in a van on the way to Chicago when I finished. I sat there with the book in my hands for a few minutes before I put it down; I crawled into the back seat and lay there, debating whether I wanted to cry. It was amazing, beautiful, and sad.

I'm head-over-heels in love with Darcy. He's amazing...he works well, takes beautiful pictures, and he's completely amazing. I haven't had to edit any pictures since I've gotten him.

My giveaway. Yeah, that one. You followers are so disappointing sometimes! I had all of two people enter, one of them being my sister. So here's the thing: I'm postponing it indefinitely. I will probably open it up at some future time, but for now, I'm closing it down. Speaking of my sister, Darcy takes great pictures of her. :)

Fall is finally here. I could go over everything again, but I've said it all: Pumpkin Spice Latte, beautiful fall leaves, You've Got Mail, bonfires, wool socks and boots, comfy old hoodies.

I keep expecting this autumn to be like last year. I get tripped up when I realize how different everything is, and how much I've changed. This time last year, all my time was spent at soccer games and church. I would try as hard as I could not to miss a game. We would huddle under blankets and hoodies against the cold and the rain. Every Sunday and Wednesday night I would be at church, and I loved it. I started my sophomore year somehow expecting it to be like my freshman year: before my friendship with someone incredibly close to me shattered. It's different now, but in a good way, I think.

Darcy take gorgeous pictures, and this one is my new favorite. :)
