I've had such good phone conversations with my momma and sister lately. Now all I want to do is dance with them in the kitchen to this song: I've been practicing each of these dance moves. [thanks to the lovely ashely for showing me this video.]
After getting back from a [wonderful, wonderful] trip to Texas, I came home to Evan's lovely family visiting us. They left the next day and Evan and I both would've guessed that we would just end up sleeping for the following 24 hours. Instead, we went on a little road trip. It was ah-mazing. Just… Continue reading VAN ROADTRIP // november twenty-twelve.
The other day, I had to drive to an appointment across town after work. Traffic in Missoula can be surprisingly frustrating when not traveling by bike. The lights are longer. Which is completely frustrating. Most days. The other day, I was sitting at a light for the third time in a row... I was now… Continue reading like she was. like it was.

This past weekend the ladies [allison and julia] came for a visit. It was ah-mazing. [do i say that too much? whatevs. it WAS.] And, of course, Saturday night we ended up in everything from my costume box and had a late-night dance party. O-M-G. So much fun. Unnnnntiiiiiillll... It was around 4am... yep... 4am. … Continue reading tunes to take down a village.
I am a sucker for free things. I'll take it! I'll do that! Sure, I'll eat that! So, I won a two week pass to The Womens Club from a raffle from a 5k Momma and I did whilst she was in town. I answered the phone call and when they told me I had… Continue reading where wine comes from!
Momma was here for a bit over a week. It was amazing. Wonderful. Everything. Love. We did so much. But most importantly, we laughed, danced and loved. I really had a hard time taking her to the airport. When we hugged goodbye at security, we hugged tight. Couldn't let go. We were quiet, trying to… Continue reading thank you for sharing.
This weekend has been brutal. Why? Oh, because my whole Texas-dwelling family was privileged enough to attend the Austin City Limits Festival. Brutal? Because I couldn't be there with them. Convincing my brother to go see Pretty Lights: ...and getting back a rave review. Having texts sent throughout the days of favorite songs by favorite… Continue reading we embrace our love/friendship and go.
Evan was here [in missoula... my new home] this weekend. Yesterday, after running around, moving things, garage saling things, we had plans to go to the River City Roots Festival. We stumbled in my new [ah-mazing] apartment, with nothing really ready to go in there... except for my new favorite thing. A record player/radio/iPod player… Continue reading the simplicity. the love.
Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River was [hands down] one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Words trying to spell out the laughs, scares, beauty, realizations, breathlessness... would fall short. So, in hopes, here are some photos to explain... [in almost completely random order...] [a week for the books. a time… Continue reading where i’ve been for the last week…
[wull hallo.] I hope you're doing well. I'm doing pretty awesome. "Oh, why?" you ask... from across the room... wondering why I'm dancing like that. [the happy burst that comes from deep within... spurred by the simplest thing.] "Because I got a plant in the mail today... A plant that lives in a dinosaur." HUGE… Continue reading act your age or care.
Bardman is the superhero two year old I hang out with on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He's starting to turn into an awesome chatterbox and, in general, become a quirky personality. Bard always carries his bear around... the one who wears a red shirt... Bard calls him "Bug"... he is a safety blanket x10. Life Lessons… Continue reading it’s time.
My dad has had his moments. By that, I mean he's a quirky, silly guy, but every once in a while, he'll blow you out of the water with sweetness. For the rest of this story to make any sense, you must read this old blahg post: https://rachellaurenmarie.wordpress.com/2010/12/24/love-is-there/ And if you refuse to do so… Continue reading crying, smiling, singing, loving. magic.
I got a text message yesterday morning, that read: "You are going to crack up when you see the cover of the daily!" My first thought was, Oh, no this cannot be good. Especially since there were many pictures of me taken like this... And then I opened an email that read: "I think they… Continue reading it’s okay if your shoes aren’t doing it…
When I lived in Yosemite [the 2008 time], we instated the "One Song Dance Party". It was only one song, and it had to happen every night. It was glorious. Some people would just be sitting at the kitchen table, watching... laughing... And then there we'd be... dancing, smiling, laughing... sweating... It looked something like… Continue reading reinstated.
Allison asked, - Do you cry a lot? - Pardon? - Well, in your blahg, you say that you cried when something happened a lot. Do you really cry? Or do you just say that? - Oh, I dunno... I think I cry everytime I say I do. Maybe I don't. Soon enough it was… Continue reading my true heart.
The best kind of compliment... I Music on Mained last night: http://www.tetonvalleyfoundation.org/music-on-main.php with family [my bro!] and loves [friends!]. Ran into a bud that I see more on the internet than I see in person. We had a lovely little conversation before the dance ground called. When I got home, I got an email from… Continue reading goofy just like you.
