9/11 though 18 yr old eyes


I can hardly believe how fast the past 10 years have gone by. I remember it like it was yesterday. I had just graduated high school, having an awesome summer, met a guy, had not a care in the world. Summer was filled  with lots of parties and working odd jobs and counting down the days till I would start my first semester of college. I was very excited to be taking classes that I was actually interested in besides Drama and government. 

Although being a sophisticated college girl then, I still had a few friends that were still in high school. One of them being Andy, a friend I have known since 1st grade. Andy and I were pretty close and hung out almost every day and would spend our time watching Britney Spears music videos and eating junk food. 

One day in early September we were hanging out and he had told me he had something strange happen to him. Something that sounded too weird to ignore. He told me that when he looked at the digital alarm clock in his room or any clock that it read 9:11. He said this had been happening for at least a week. We told his mom, whom is a Christian and she said it must be a sign. He took it as a bad sign and that it wasn't going away , he kept seeing 9:11. 

Later that week Andy told me that he had a horrible feeling about why he was seeing the numbers 9:11 over and over again. So he decided he wasn't going to school that day because he was so scared. I believed him when he told me his thoughts on this. I remember the night before 9:11 I was hanging out with the guy I was dating and his friends. When they dropped me off that night I said to them " When you wake up tomorrow, you will find out that something really horrible has happened". They kind of looked at me crazy and I said my reasoning behind it and went inside and to bed. 

My dad woke me up and ...all I could think of is that the world was ending. My friend was right a horrible tragedy  had happened to our country that day.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
