you like death cab for cutie.
best part of my day.

not again

this feeling is so foreign to me; the jitters, the random smiles, the giggles, the anxiousness for time. I've been so protective, so scared, so timid; and all of a sudden, i'm this sassy, spunky new england girl again who i thought I lost a year ago.

But that stupid regret complex of mine; that lesson that taught me to live with no regrets and to take every opportunity as they come. Dang it! And how can I say no to the sass that has been missing for such a long time? I love this girl; I love who I am right now. Don't let it go away because of fear.

Just go with it, Chelsabelle. Protect yourself, but it's okay to go with it. Learn.


May means Marriage!

my lack of posts in the last few weeks was due to serious amount of traveling and MARRIAGE!
Two weeks ago I was in my beloved New England to see my best friend Juli get married to Big Brother Jordan. One week ago, I was on the opposite side of the country to see dear Trishy get married to wonderful Russell. In between all of the marriage, I got to see my families and friends, I got to stand in several cities and see two temples!







Boston Temple!

Portland Temple!

MARRIAGE! Juli and Jordan Bratt 5/15/2010

Beautiful Bride

MARRIAGE! Trish and Russell Dickerson 5/21/2010

 What a wonderful two weeks of airplane rides, friends, family, temples and marriage! I am so thankful for the opportunity i've had to travel to all of these places and I look forward to possible future trips to Cali, Utah and Texas and eventually back home!


i get away with it now. kind of shocking. even you can't read me.
and i'm not sure if i should be happy or sad about that.
either way. i got away with it. and that is the story, morning glory.

in other news, my fhe brother is fixing Cazz's headlight, i talked to a friend of mine today who's voice has been quiet for a while and tomorrow is tuesday, which means I get to breathe.



late for work.

my hair is still drenched and in a towel and i never made it far when I was unpacking last night.
Bed time was supposed to be early but instead, I got to spend the night with my brother because a few hours with face to face time is hard and few to come by and I take them happily when they come. It was good. I laughed a lot. He does that. Makes you laugh. I miss his guts.
Brad came by and we had a heart to heart and I still don't know what he's going to do, but I hope he sees things a little bit clearer now.

I'm exhausted. six hours of work today, 1.5 hours of class, FHE, Groceries and a promised appearance at the Locus event tonight. Tomorrow is Tuesday. Tomorrow means no work, an extra hour of sleep and time to breathe.


i'll see you in the morning

if there is one downside to having a pet...it's having to say goodbye...

especially when you didn't see it coming...

Sleep well, my little mountain lion. You are loved more then you will ever know. Thank you for the laughs, the snuggles, the protection and the friendship you have never failed to provide over the last six years. I've never met a kitty who loved to be rocked like a baby, who would wait at the top of the steps for us to come home, who would get his head stuck in tissue boxes and who would perch on my shoulder like a parrot to get a better view out the window. I hope they have a lot of food where you are, and chipmunks you can actually run after and your favorite feather toy. I'm so sorry I didn't get to say goodbye properly; I'm sorry you got so sick and I'm sorry I couldn't make it better. I'm so sad you aren't going to be there waiting for me in August. I'm so sad. 

I love you, Gin. You are my boy, and the best kitty I've ever known.

Sleep well. I'll be seeing you in the morning. 


new england sets my soul on fire.

home. home. home.



My bags are packed, my hair is washed, my car has a full tank of gas, my boarding pass is printed out. I just have one class that stands between me and leaving Idaho for New England and into the comfort, security and love of my family. Which brings me to..

Because experiencing all of those wonderful things that New England and New Hampshire has to offer just isn't the same unless you are experiencing it with the people you love. 

New Hampshire, here I come.


New England Bound in TWO Days!



East Coast Lovin', and I can never get enough of the 12 beautiful miles of New Hampshire Coast. there s something about the coast that just makes me so content. The smell, the texture of the air and the sand between my toes. The constantly changing weather. The perfect shade of dark blue. The way the sun sets over the marshes. I love it all.

sometimes, you just need the reassurance that someone, somewhere is pulling for you and genuinely cares.
thank you brother, for all of the support you continue to show me. 


New England Bound in 5 Days!


New England is known for Autumn; the smell of soft decay, the weather of low seventies and plenty of sunshine, the crisp air in the morning and the crunchy leaves on the ground, and the first of hot cocoa and high school football and most importantly; the bright, glorious, changing colors.
You don't get a prettier fall anywhere else but in New England.
The White Mountains of New Hampshire was named number 2 in the world for best places to see the leaves in fall.

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
-  Albert Camus

"A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.  The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air."-   Eric Sloane

"The hazy, cloudless skies of Indian Summer. Leaves scurrying down the street before the wind. The cold shiver from an arctic blast. Indian Summer. The last warmth of the sun. Chilly mornings and glorious warm afternoons. The Harvest Moon. The Hunter's Moon. The Rainy Season. Dry corn stalks clattering in the wind. The touch of frost on grass and window pane. The smell of burning leaves."
-   Keith C. Heidorn  

"Autumn begins with a subtle change in the light, with skies
a deeper blue, and nights that become suddenly clear and
chilled.  The season comes full with the first frost, the
disappearance of migrant birds, and the harvesting of
the season's last crops."
-   Glenn Wolff and Jerry Dennis 

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."-   Elizabeth Lawrence

"It was Indian summer, a bluebird sort of day as we call it in the north,
warm and sunny, without a breath of wind; the water was sky-blue,
the shores a bank of solid gold."
-   Sigurd Olson

"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
-   George Cooper, October's Party

waking up to an day with these colors might possibly the best way to wake up.
oh new england.
