Here I will document my journey towards inner peace and health!

Christopher and I have been reading each other’s minds lately…

And I love it.

For the past few months Chris and I have been rewatching all the seasons of Boy Meets World from start to finish. We watch an episode or two a couple times of week when we have time.

But, we also love the show “Chopped” on food network, which we used to watch frequently before boy meets world. 

Around 9:00, we decided it was time to wind down and watch some tv in bed, which would typically be Boy Meets World since we only have 5 or 6 episodes left.

I go in our room and he’s getting ready “Boy Meets World” on my laptop. Before I get in bed I say, “Hey hun, any way you’d want to watch Chopped tonight? I’m kind of in the mood for it”.

All he does is flip the computer around, and there it was, the show Chopped, which he already got ready for us to watch.

I just smiled and looked at him and said, “I love us.”

And this stuff happens ALL the time. I wake up randomly one morning craving pancakes, boom without a word Chris randomly gets up and starts making pancakes. Chris didn’t have time to pick up beer after work… boom I just so happened to stop and get him some beer for no reason at all.

Its amazing how the universe works. How LOVE works.

I am so in love and so lucky to have such an amazing man in my life and to have such wonderful relationship with this MAN. We both have our flaws and get on each other’s nerves sometimes, but every day ends with us holding hands and my head on his chest in a warm, loving embrace— no matter what.

Ps. Just realized I will be getting my $300 housing deposit back once I get there… so that helps too! Yay! :D

YIKES!

I’m getting a little nervous about paying for Italy. I have enough money to cover my plane ticket and program costs…

And as of right now I only have about $500 for food and well… anything and everything else. Travel… shopping (i gotta do a LITTLE of it while I am there!)

I am going to try working my ARSE off as much as I can until I go. But i’m still freaking out….

I was kind of relying on selling these stocks my Grandmother remembered she bought me when I was a baby…. they are worth over $2,000. But they were turned over to the unclaimed property division since she didn’t touch them for so long and the claim I sent in is taking FOREVER. I don’t know if I am going to be able to sell them in time.

WELL I know it will all work itself out! I am still nervous though. :P

Always feels good when you get back from the grocery store and feel good about everything you bought. All those produce bags, man!

And I’m still trying to figure out what works. It’s hard, but I’m still trying!

I second that, Missy.

Lets all take a moment to remember the fallen, the survivors, and the heroes that came out of the Boston Marathon Bombing.Lets remember the comradery, the strength, and the beauty of this situation, NOT whatshisface 1&amp;2. They are irrelevant. What matters is how the people, the city, the country, and the rest of the world dealt with the situation so gracefully and beautifully and united. &lt;3

A big shout out to all of the amazing people who ran the Boston Marathon today!One of my coworkers is running to raise money for MS. Last year she was only a half mile from the finish line. A. half. mile. 
I am just so damn proud to be from Boston its not even funny. I&#8217;ve been emotional all day long thinking about the tragedy that happened last year.But I am emotional and crying more out of HAPPINESS. It just makes my heart smile seeing Boston, the victims from last year, and the rest of the world come together and rise up despite the tragedy. It is just so inspiring and heart warming and this day reminds me of how much good there is in the world.

Speaking of Italy and my bank account being drained of my entire life’s savings…

If anybody has a dollar or two to spare, it would be greatly appreciated! I am financing this trip abroad ALL BY MYSELF, and I need all the help I can get! At the moment I am going to get by in Italy on some strings and glue and smiles and good will… lol

Please and thank you to anyone who is willing to donate to my Florence Funds! <3

And PLEASE reblog and pass this on! That would be the greatest gift at all!

XOXOX

Here are some pictures from my little hike this week! Monday my boyfriend, best friend, brother, and I took a little hike up the Blue Hills to start off the hiking season! Its a nice easy hike and it was such a beautiful day despite some clouds and wind! We had lots of laughs and then went out to dinner for my birthday later that night!

And look at the little fella in the third picture! What a cutie! They have a small wildlife center and this is their rescue otter! In this picture he is sleeping and actually SUCKING ON HIS TAIL LIKE ITS HIS THUMB. Is that not the cutest thing ever?

Ahh I am just so happy it is finally spring! :-) Can’t wait to do some more hiking soon! And maybe I’ll do some in Italy too! We will see!
