It is the final week of the semester for me and it has been absolutely the longest week in history!!! I have exactly one more exam and I will be finished. I haven't even attempted to study for it and can't really bring myself to. I'm just to excited! I'm flying out for Scotland on Saturday morning with my boyfriend to visit his family for Christmas and New Years. He hasn't been home in whole year and he is so excited. Its all we have been talking about for the last month. I've secretly been keeping a count down (secret because he laughs at me every time I tell him how many more days it is until we leave). I've never been outside the continental U.S. so this is a really big step for me. I think I might just get lost and not come back. :D He promised to take me to The Elephant House Coffee Shop in Edinburgh (its where J.K. Rowling started writing Harry Potter, yes I'm a total geek but I have to go!!). Its so exciting though to go to a place with so much history when I'm coming from a place that is so young, especially when History is half my major. I'll probably take pictures of absolutely everything and look like a complete and total tourist but I don't care I'm too excited to care. Its going to be so much fun I can't wait!

Hello all! I just wanted to share my latest project. I just finished a lovely slouchy beanie. Its really warm and cozy and will be perfect for keeping me warm when its chilly out. I've been working on scarves, wrist woolies, leg warmers and all sorts of other warm and cozies. Its been really cold where I am and I was in desperate need of stuff to keep me warm so this was just a good excuse to crochet, not that I really need one. But its nice to have a reason. I'll post my next project when I'm finished. Feel free to tell me what you think!

I was absolutely amazed when I saw this photograph. It is incredible to me that someone can create something with so much perspective with chalk! The artist is Julian Beever. Here is a link to some of his other work. http://www.cravingtech.com/julian-beever-3d-chalk-drawings.html
The eyes tell so much about a person. I they tell more than any other part of the body. I read once that the eyes are the gateway to the soul. To look into another's eyes is like opeing a book full of knowlege and wisdom. And there are so many different types of eyes. There are happy eyes, sad eyes, scared eyes, brave eyes, funny eyes, somber eyes, wise eyes, and unfortunately there are many of the times ignorant eyes. Everyone posses each of these types of eyes at least once in the course of their lives. My only wish is that one day my eyes show a deep and concentrated wisdom that this man's possesses. Though he is old and worn with the effects of time, he is beautiful. His eyes give him this great sence of wisdom and power that only a person who is well experienced with tribulations as well as ecstasy that is life.
