thanks. just kidding, embrace yourselves, I'm about to get real sappy: I'm thankful. I'm thankful for this life I continue to live, continue to figure out, continue to embrace & continue to wander. Thinking back on a couple of years ago, Thanksgiving Day was doomsday for me. Having an unhealthy relationship with food crushed me & on this particular holiday i lived in the midst of shadows trying to stay as far away from food possible which WAS impossible. Fear, I was overwhelmed with it.. But, I'm thankful. I'm thankful for past experiences..trials, that shaped who I am today. I'm blessed to have experienced life happenings to strengthen me. I'm thankful for the life that was slowly drifting away from me. Now, I'm still thankful but with a different perspective. Life, it's beautiful & I love food. I'm am thankful for friends & family who support me, encourage me, & love me continuously everyday. I'm thankful for the education I have although it has been kicking my ass recently. I'm thankful for strangers, my home, my health, & the little things.. I thank God for it all. I think about all this, I'm soooo thankful. GAH. I'm thankful to have woken up on this beautiful day, smell the food baking & cooking to soon be in our tummies, I'm thankful to love my siblings & be loved by my family unconditionally, & I'm just so thankful for "it all'
It's life. Life, I'm thankful for life! I'm thankful for YOU & food & wine. yeah, all that. . Also, food. Eat, eat, eat & never let food be the enemy because y'all are such beautiful souls & deserve to be happy with food. It brings us together, fuels us, & it's yummy. I can ramble, go on and on but I'm about to feed myself some yummy pie with a cup of coffee. All in all, I'm thankful, I'm blessed & I'm about to be in a food coma. Happy Thanksgiving {2014}

valbui •mini rambles on life•

am I the only one who is ready for this school semester to be over? With countless hours of studying, many cups of coffee & minimal hours of sleep, yeah, I'm done. Aside from this hectic semester, life has been pretty sweet & I am so thankful for that. Life is sweet in the littlest of ways, from morning thunder storms over the weekend to nice walks home during the week, from people I talk to & the moments I share with them filled with love, laughter & vulnerability. It's the little things that get me, the little things that seem to outweigh the 'bad' in most cases. It's so nice. It's so nice to just look back on life or look at how well things are actually going for you in this moment, maybe. It's nice to be mindful of your surroundings, noticing the things that bring you even the slightest of joy & appreciating them: the little things.//On another note, I'm excited for Thanksgiving. It's funny to see how each year my perception on this particular holiday has changed: from being so restrictive & not wanting to sit at the dinner table because food was everywhere to wanting to cook & eat errrrrhang. It brings me such an abundance of jubilance 😬 that rhymes, somehow in someway. & hey, it's Monday & I have a crush, wait, whut lol..just kidding but.. Happy Monday!

valbui afternoon drinks, food, shared laughs, conversation & shopping//appreciating day hangs with a beautiful woman after one of the most stressful weeks of school.

I love her so, so so much. My heart is whole. Here's an obligatory selfie. I can go on and on about how much she has impacted me, but I just want to appreciate these precious moments instead. I'm so thankful to have her in my life, as my mom, as a hero, as a best friend.

valbui One of my favorite feelings is going to a live show. Hearing the music, feeling the beat, being surrounded by people, dancing & appreciating the sound of sweet tunes. Seeing Vance Joy with great people made it even better. I feel more than content & it was fun. my heart is happy, dancing with 'Joy'

see what I did there?!

valbui today I woke up in an extra great mood, as I walked to campus, I thanked God for his trials & all things great.
after class, I headed to the grocery store & made some homemade butternut squash soup!! It was so yummy, my roommates even thought so! I'm happy for Fridays, I'm happy for autumn, & I'm thankful for my friends, family & life.

valbui snail mail & lovely friends I want to take this time to thank & appreciate a kind soul, @chachaishawt. I was surprised by this package of goodies when I was woken up from a nap. Miss Becca, you're so dear to me & everyone else. You have such a BIG heart, a silly personality & radiating spirit which expresses both love & Joy of life. I'm so thankful to call you a friend because no matter what, I know you would understand. We both have the busiest of lives but when time is shared together, it's quite eventful! Love you&thank you. My mornings will be even better️ my heart is so happy! 1mon

valbui «birthday weekend recap»

my weekend was marvelous & my birthday was great & the people I spent it with were even greater. Milestone birthday? Sure. yesterday I wrote to myself in an unused journal (especially for this age), things I learned within the past year & things to continue living by. Love, is number one. Love & allow myself to be loved. It was interesting to see the growth that has occurred & it'll be neato to live life & see what happens! I thank everyone for the birthday wishes, blessings & many more!! Also, I thank my beautiful roommates for my surprise party, gifts & just them for being them. ️ my heart is whole, it is full. I am blessed. I am 20, hazaah!

valbui I was peer pressured to open this early, packages from home are the best! & my mom is THE BEST!//inside this box that was light as a feather was money filled balloons, with notes in each one of them. Cards from family & some makeup, but I can care less about the money..it's from the people, from THE PERSON that sent this to me & sent/filled it with love. This has by far been one of the best packages I have opened just because it was from my momma, one of, if not, the most important person in my life. I miss her dearly, she's awesome. 2mon
