absence makes the heart grow fonder.

November 29, 2011

I've neglected this blog because it's been hard to stay on top of everything, let alone online journal-ing. But since November is ending, and the most wonderful time of the year is just beginning -- I thought I'd share only a few of the happiest of things that the 11th month of the 2011th year has brought to me:

-The oh-so-fateful date of 11/11/11. After years of waiting to make a wish on such a special day, I somehow found myself at 11:11 that night + in my pajamas + in a Wendys parking lot + making a wish inside of a car. But my wish was granted.
-The return of my best friend Max. Words won't be enough for this point, because I don't know how to write about being happier than I've ever been before.
-Christmas decor. I watch Mickey's Christmas Carol every time I set up the Christmas decorations, just because we used to when I was little. Even with family far apart, I still feel at home.
-Thanksgiving feast, naps and Youtube videos with my aunts and uncles and cousins.
-Black Friday shopping. Never had done it before, never will do it again.
-The cuddle couch/Red Robin bottomless fries/stories by the fireplace - all accompanied with friends and family and movies and smiling til our cheeks hurt. I love how people come together so much more often this time of year.
-My tentative (fingers crossed!) planned trip to see my parents (and Samoa!) this Christmas.
-And again: My best friend coming home. Have I ever even talked about being in love on my own blog before? If they say absence makes they heart grow fonder, mine could probably burst at the seams.

i have never gone to black friday and when reading that you will never do it again it just made me despise the whole concept that much more. what better way to kill the holiday spirit right? red robin has my heart for that reason alone: bottomless fries. i pray that the whole absence makes the heart grow fonder statement comes into play in my life here in the next month. mr. major crush of mine is heading to school and it sort of just makes my heart want to die. okaaaay so i'm being over dramatic here but i really am bummed he's leaving.

I've never done Black Friday and I have no desire to. Stay at home and sleep and eat pie for breakfast.

And Kels, I am so so happy that you are so happy. You deserve the very best.
