Day 360 – Post Five-Hundred-Fifty-Eight


Inspiration: Oh thiiiiiis is the nightttt.

Today has been great (: I got up early, showered, and bused over to my man’s house to meet up with him for coffee before he went to work. (: It was lovely. Then I bused back to the mall, and now I’m sitting in Starbucks with my Emmaly. (:
I’m so happy. I’m just genuinely happy. It’s amazing. I love Portland. I’m back! It’s wonderful. I haven’t been this happy in a long time. I do, however, miss my family MUCHO.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 359 – Post Five-Hundred-Fifty-Seven


Inspiration: For Carrie.

Sorry for the delay. I was camping all weekend, and then I was at my aunt’s last night. She doesn’t have wireless, so I didn’t have a chance to post. Thank God I’m almost done with this project, otherwise it would probably have to be postponed! Haha. Today I went to the mall and hung out with my best friend (: and then I went to Walmart to pick up a few things and hang out with my little girl, Emmaly. Now I’m at her house showing her Picnik and just relaxing. (: Yay!

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 354 – Post Five-Hundred-Fifty-Two


Inspiration: In between.

Today was good. (: I finished all of my packing, did a family shoot for my friend, Madison, and then finished getting ready for tomorrow morning. All I have left to pack is my tooth brush and my laptop. I stopped by a friend’s to pick up some earrings she had made for me, and boy were they gorgeous! I’m in love! All three of them are feathers; one of them brown with black, another just plain black, and then the third are peacock feathers, but it’s only a few strands! So happy. Thank you, Vicki (:
Just to warn you all: Tomorrow, Saturday, and probably Sunday will not have a 365 post. I might set up a few posts ahead of time tonight, but I don’t know if I’ll have time. Goodnight. (:

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 353 – Post Five-Hundred-Fifty-One


Inspiration: Summer rains/thunderstorms.

Today was great (: We had giant raindrops and thunder with lightning! It was perfect. The lightning is still happening.
I finished editing Madi’s photos from yesterday afternoon/evening, and they turned out so awesome! Now her mum wants me to take photos of all 3 kids, so I’ll be doing that tomorrow (: I went to church and said goodbye to everyone. I also went out for some late night Mexican with a few of my friends from church. That was fun. Madi ordered these ‘carne fries’ or something for me . . . way too much food. Wayyyy too much food. Haha. I ate maybe half, with the help of Madi and my Italian mobster friend. It was a good day. (: I’m going to miss everyone dearly though. I can’t wait to visit.

Au revoir,

Gigi

Day 352 – Post Five-Hundred-Fifty


Inspiration: Shifts.

Today was great (: I cleaned up the house, did something with myself (curled my hair!) and then spent the afternoon and evening with my friend, Madison, taking a bunch of really awesome photos and just hanging out and talking. I’m really sad to be leaving her behind in Redmond. She’s become such an amazing friend. I’m going to miss her a lot. We had a wonderful afternoon though (: Now I’m editing a couple photos and about to go to bed. I am exhausted and my head does not like this bright light. (: Goodnight.

Au revoir,

Gigi

It is Me – Post Five-Hundred-Forty-Nine

So, as you all know, I was a big, major space cadet and missed the 2nd birthday of Red Hero. Seriously? Such a space. I could come up with a million excuses, but honestly it really just slipped my mind. This blog has been infested with the 365 project since my last birthday, and pretty much everything has taken to the back burner on this blog. I really can’t wait for it to be over. Seriously. I know that sounds awful, but I’m excited for my 365 project to be done. Then I can go back to just sharing what I love with you.

So, anyway. I was thinking about what I should write for Red Hero’s 2nd birthday. I was looking at the first post I ever wrote, and I realized that, when I started It, I really had no idea what It was going to be all about. I had no idea what It would consist of, or mean for me. I’m going to tell you what It is.

It means big dreams. It means discipline, perseverance, and patience. It means working hard and going against the grain. It means not listening to people who say, “dream on” or “don’t aim too high”. If I don’t finish It, then I know that’s okay, because I gave It my all, and who knows, maybe my kids will carry on to finish It.
It means adventures. It means going above and beyond, and following what you believe in. It means not giving up, and not saying, “that’s not possible”. It means saying It IS possible. I admit, some of the items on my list are a bit out there, but I know I can accomplish any of those items on there if I just work hard. I can do this.

It is a wonderful thing for me. It has taught me so much in just the past 2 years, and as It keeps growing, I keep growing, I keep learning more about who I am, what I love, what I want to do and the story I want to leave behind. 

It is a compilation of my dreams, my hopes, and what I have my heart set on to accomplish before my last breath. It is an example of what I love in life, and has become how I’m going to live my life to the fullest.

Au revoir,

Gigi
