summer photo dump + crazy life lately




So. A photo dump. Because I've never done one of these before, and I went kind of picture-crazy one bright, beautiful day. It was all sunshine, long conversations that have no real beginning or end, visits with my amazing grandparents, and an epic battle between me and my sister -- which consisted of boyishly throwing beanbags at each other. (Whoever hit the opposite person the most won. I won.) This is summer in its purist vintage. 

Aaaaand, life lately. Gosh, it really has been busy. And I usually don't even talk about life because it's pretty dull to read. But I know that I love reading all you superstars' ambitions for the coming season, so I'll try and do my best here. Life has been deep breaths of adrenaline. Laughter and staying up till midnight watching Narnia movies with my sister -- naturally rewinding every other line because "oh my gosh it sounded like he said green Susan's sword" or "CASPIAN'S FACE OMG." Lots and lots and lots of tea, writing 3,700 words in one day, obsessively listening to soundtracks and learning new covers on my lovely piano. I'm ready to start running with my dream. I'm ready to jump into this beautiful pool of cold, scary water that promises something awesome if I know how to swim. I'm ready for it. I'm grabbing it with both hands and kissing it hard on the lips. The next few months are going to be filled with making things -- songs, remixes, covers, videos... among other things. I can't wait to share all this stuff with you, my beautiful friends. It's going to be fun. And insanely refreshing. (Yes, Jessica -- even more than watermelon.) 

What plans do you all have for this summer? Are they exciting? Crazy? Maybe even a little scary? TELL ME TELL ME. 

love,
abbie

  2. Yes to photo dumps. I definitely approve. Your photos look like summer itself.

    My plans include a lot of working and (hopefully) writing. Plus preparing to MOVE TO WALES. Yeah, it should be good.

    I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH. They are perfect and amazing deep down in mah soul. Your life sounds interesting and amazing. I love it a lot. I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT. <- it's like a chant. XD

    For my summer, I am going to be a Counselor in Training at Elementary camp and then I will be Activities Assistant at Junior camp. The camps are run by Adelaide Thompson's parents (I don't know if you know her, but she's http://downbythewillows.blogspot.com/). Hannah Joy also goes there. So I will be stuck with them for about two months along with a bunch of kids. :-D It's going to be fabulous God-time. <3

    THANKS FOR TELLING US ABOUT YOUR LIFE. I ENJOYED READING ABOUT IT.

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
