beautiful day at the beach!
Minneapolis is awfully freezing most of the year, but quite enjoyable when it's finally warm,
with a perfect beach tucked into the city.
We watched boats and clouds float, and Kyle collected mysterious rocks.

salut mes amies!

I've had a really lovely summer break so far.
A couple of days ago, Kyle and I went to the most delicious French restaurant called Salut.
The decor was great annnnd they put adorable french flags in your food! C'est super-cool!

Today we went to church with Sarah, and then went to feed the squirrels and birds at Loring Park...which is always hilariously fun.
I'm working on my first real embroidery today...embroidery hoop and all! I've been planning on this being my summer hobby, and I'm already in love with it.

OH and i'm finally mailing letters to eeevveryone I said I was going to...i promise, they're coming!

friday- Sophomore Serminar 9-10:30, Ideation and Process 1-6

I guess this teeny really, really, really, really incredibly adorable deer was delivered via C-section after it's mum was hit by a car. AWW.
Yes, but then he died the day later..or a few days later, something like that.
but all I can say is, It's the cutest thing i've ever seen.

takes away all my worries about deciding where to move!

Monday, May 4, 2009


so, i've been going back and forth back and forth on where to live. When kyle and i first moved to minneapolis, i thought i hated it...but really, that was just because it was somewhere new and different and scary. buuut now i see all the wonders of minneapolis; it's SAFE, it's CLEAN.....and that's all i really care about. Mostly, safety though, which is why i'm afraid to move back to Kansas City. Our plans were to move to kc june first, and i'd go to the kc art institute, which is a really wonderful school. It's cheaper, it's familiar, my friends and family live there, but lately i've just been really worried about being safe. In minneapolis you can go outside in the dark by yourself (in lots of places), you can ride the public transportation alone, and there are lots of 'normal' people out to protect you when someone freaky approaches. .buuut, the apartments are a lot more expensive, and so is MCAD.
In kc, i can get my BFA in photography AND fibers, and save a lot of money.
but if i'm going to be constantly afraid of my safety (my mom was nearly murdered there, and people are shot or stabbed everyday) theennn I don't know if it's worth it. I grew up in KC, so I know it's not all bad. It's just that i've lived somewhere so safe for a year, it's going to be hard to adjust again.

uuggghhhh growing up and deciding things is so hard.
