insta lately

Relay for Life fundraisers: 1,000 cranes for a cure / homemade sourdough bread our team sold
Jeopardy Magazine, my first time being published / my last day of childcare for these cuties
Mt. St. Helen's Vietnam Band / Metric performing on campus
fake bartending in the cabin / essentials for Memorial Day weekend
relaxing by the lake / being as classy as possible and/or celebrating America w. my sister
getting ready to fish / a quick stop home to give this guy some love

It's been an eventful few weeks! Starting with Relay for Life last weekend, I feel like I haven't had a calm moment since--and I mean that in the best possible way. Life has been full of small celebrations lately, whether we're celebrating the publication of Jeopardy, my university's literary & fine arts journal that I have three pieces in, or Memorial Day, or money raised for cancer research or simply the fact that the sun is out. I spent a perfect weekend on a lake with my best friends, filled with American flags and boating and cheap beer and long bonfire talks. I even got to introduce my pup to my best guy friends on the way home--really, I absolutely cannot complain about life right now. The luckiest. 

I also just found out that a poem I wrote about Seattle is going to be published in the Spring '12 issue of Line Zero and I couldn't be more excited. It's an absolute honor & inspiration for me, as a writer and as a PNW resident. Can't wait to see it!

these are all such pretty photos- look at your pup! and i love all the colors of the cranes. congrats on being published 4 times!! that's such an exciting week! what'd you write your pieces on?

charity victoria said...

@Marlena: They are all on different things. One poem is about Seattle, one is about miscarriage (my mom had two), and one is about a girl meeting her loved one's parents for the first time. And one is a creative nonfiction piece about my brother. Thanks for asking!
