A trip down memory lane...

Hello world. It's been a while since I have returned to this little space on the web to share my life and heart with you all. It's been a season where I have had to concentrate my time elsewhere. I am sure you understand. Here I am, returning with many things stirring in me heart. This past semester has been a whirlwind...and so has this winter break been also. I have been taking class, it has just finished and then the semester will start officially in just a few days. As I stop to take a breath I was prompted to blog. Many of you have followed me for a while now as I have moved around the world, travelled, studied and explored. What a great blessing it has been to have you a long for the ride, encouraging me as I go and giving advice on places to see, eat and drink coffee on my travels! Today I decided to look back upon my first ever blog post. WAY back in 2011 - way back when I had just moved back to England from the USA, before I had even started applying for University or sat my SAT,  before I moved to the Netherlands, then watched my parents move to Boise, before I had travelled Europe some more and then relocated back to the USA. It has been quite the adventure. I am refreshed and looking forward to many more adventures ahead and I hope to be able to share them with you all as I go. Here is a repost of my first blog post ever....

Who I Am...

I am... constantly learning
I want... a family of my own one day (I hope to raise a tribe of great, adventurous boys and girls!) Give me ten years…five at least….
I have... wonderfully wise parents - their insight amazes me constantly.
I wish...every man had good manners. I also wish that I could experience a studio session with Coldplay.
I knees! Some days they will just not run as far as the rest of my body wants to.
 I fear...wasting time and not marrying John Mayer
I hear... soft soul music and it always warms my heart. The voices of Jack Johnson, Colbie Caillat and Carol King are always adored. I always hear the music in movies.
I search...for a little bit of silence each day. Just to remain sane.
I wonder... how many times God laughs at me each day.
I regret... not being straight with friends when I should have been.
I I also love the idea of living by the ocean and being a beach babe.
I ache...for anyone who does not know Love. And I ache for my Taylor when we are separated.
I always...promise myself I will not be late the next time I have a date….it hardly ever happens!
I ice cream every day (But I also floss and run everyday so that balances that out…right?!)
I am not...fearless! Sometime I get through scary things because I don’t want to look scared to others when I am actually freaking out inside.
I dance...a lot…but hate dancing under pressure. In my mind I’m like JT.
I sing...a whole bunch everyday.
I never...want to let anyone down. But it happens and I am learning. I also never welcome rudeness, I know that I am English but, really there is never any need to be rude.
I sometimes…wish I was a pro tennis player….or a surfer. They just seem like the best jobs ever.
I cry... a bucket load every once in a while.
 I am not always...very welcoming to change. But, once I swallow my pride and get on with it I love the adventure.
I socks constantly.
I am people.
I need...sunshine to be happy. Mountains help also.
I should...start collecting air miles! I just never seen to get round to it and I miss out on free flights!
