Hey ya'll, my renters are moving out and I'd oh so love to have someone move in within the next 30 days :) If you're interested, shoot me a text or email, my info is on my facebook page.

Here are the deets...

2 Bedroom
1 Bath
Washer/Dryer included
Roughly 900 sq ft of living space (storage space not included)
Storage areas
Parking spot under car port
Couches and other various furniture (only if you want them of course)
New windows
New kitchen flooring

Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like to check the place out. Unfortunately I only have one picture, it's of the kitchen, I'd take more but there are still people living there :)

Forgot to mention! I ask for a 6 month contract and a deposit and then after that it's month to month. And it's in Orem by Costco.


the need for love

I think it's amazing how important it is for people to feel loved. I've heard it argued that the motive for every decision we make can be rooted back to the desire to feel loved or having a sense of approval/acceptance (which is kind of the same idea). It makes sense... I pick out a cute outfit to be noticed and feel loved, a teenager rebels to get attention to feel loved, etc...
I've been noticing this a lot in myself lately. Sometimes I feel like my life is like walking on a tight rope (or for modern day purposes, slack lining :P) ... I'm constantly fighting to stay in balance, the slightest gust of wind can throw me off. And it all revolves around the need to feel accepted and loved. I fear my self esteem is more fragile than I would like it to be. The stupidest, little things can set me off into a mood of complete yuckiness. I would so love to be "more stable", not this constant roller coaster of emotion where even unintended things make me question my value. I just keep going back to how Jordan left me. It's sticking with me more than I would like.
So my next life project is to love myself. And I'm going to start off this project by doing my best to love others.

“If we are not careful, we can be injured by the frostbite of frustration; we can be frozen in place by the chill of unmet expectations. To avoid this we must—just as we would with arctic coldness—keep moving, keep serving, and keep reaching out so that our own immobility does not become our chief danger.”

A talk I just finished reading and enjoyed, Love Is Life by Barbara Smith, I'd suggest it if you have a minute :)


Have I ever told you how much I absolutely love my dogs? Because I sure do!
That's really all I had to say :)


what do you think?

Lets first start off with Valentines day and this picture...

I had a valentines day party for all my lovely single friends yesterday. It was a lot of fun. My friends brought their friends and I got to meet a lot of new people. We played games, ate food, attacked balloon hearts with swords ... how could you not want to be at that awesome party? One of the best parts though was when the guys surprised the girls at my party with roses that they had bought us. They gave us each a long stemmed red rose and I thought it was the sweetest thing. Really though, I was so impressed and felt so special. They gave me all the extras and I couldn't stop smiling about it. I felt cared for on Valentines day, a feeling I wasn't expecting and it was so nice... Julianne (Jordan's mom) also stopped by some chocolates for me. She is so thoughtful and loving. I will always consider her and the Eyres my family.

My second/last part of this post...
I've been thinking about this lately and I would like your opinion.
Do you think it's possible to be truly happy and be lonely at the same time?
