a little light reading...

this embarrassing display is what is currently on my nightstand.
you're probably asking yourself,
"what's so embarrassing about that, Linds?"
well, i will tell you...
i've started each of these books with excitement and devotion.
i've also heartlessly left each single one after reaching halfway, too excited to start another one.
the most recently acquired and most recently ditched?
Cannery Row.

i think i have a problem with, shall we say, finishing what i start?
uhhhhh... yep.

so long...

... my little ones.

i'm missing you already!
- miss c!

a trip to the east... celebrate the end of a long 8 months of student teaching, i met up with my mom and jonny in Richmond to surprise the darling Mini Cracroft's who, for the last few months, i have been missing more than i can explain. it was the best adventure i could have asked for.

these two are the most darling couple.
8 years later and they're still completely in love...
rosie rose, the love of my life.
if i could spend every single day with this one, i would.
will, my little soda monster.
he's the sweetest boy in the entire world.
some girl's gonna be really lucky to get him some day.
and baby brinners...
the most angelic baby a person could hope for.
she's gonna break a lot of hearts, this one.
thanks for the fun times guys...
... i sure love you!!

Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate...
