A little while ago VN and I went on adventure to the Tidepools in San Diego. I had never really been to tidepools before. It was so nice! We had a fun time exploring and looking for little critters. We ended up seeing limpets, chitons, goose-necked barnacles, California mussels, aggregating anemones, lined shore crabs, and even a couple sculpins. My camera battery had died as soon as I found the lined shore crabs. Boo!
Our little day trips (both Saturday and Sunday) were beautiful, fun, and relaxing... Exactly what I needed.
This sign made VN chuckle while it absolutely terrified me.
My balance isn't quite what it should be.
The brave boy decided to go closer to where the tide was coming
in. This is the typical face I get when I tell him to "turn around"
and he knows I have a camera in hand. He's a silly one. :)
The day's almost over, but I've got at least an hour left for this post to still make it on Wishful Wednesday... I love patterned socks. I have a whole bunch of them in my sock drawer, but I always love getting new ones. Here are a few I heart at the moment.
Love these vintage daisies!
Birds on a wire.
I love anything Van Gogh. Specifically Starry Night.
This is something I have had to frequently remind myself of. I'm sure you can tell by my last post that I've been having a rough time lately.
I've been battling depression for quite some time now. I was officially diagnosed my Junior year of high school (about 8 years ago), but I'm pretty sure I was depressed way before then. And the lucky girl that I am, anxiety seems to go hand-in-hand with my depression. Two for the price of one! (I love bargains, but this is one time I'd definitely rather not.)
Lately I've been feeling overwhelmed, disorganized, anxious, and rundown. The last few weeks have been filled with ups and downs. The downs being the more memorable of the two. It's been rough, but I'm trying to get through it. I'm a firm believer in the cliche, that "everything happens for a reason." I know that God will never give me more than I can handle, and the hard times are what make us stronger individuals. But really? I just want the craziness and chaos to be over already. Until they are though, I just have to keep reminding myself that everything is going to be alright... Hopefully sooner rather than later.
