 Heavenly father

Is all that he offers
A safety in the end
bon iver, heavenly father

(please listen to this cover)

I'm currently catching up on this weekend's General Conference.
I'm excited to dig in to those spiritual nuggets,
but for now, I'm just grateful for a lot of things.

I'm a writer.

I've been in hibernation for too long and it's difficult to feel the flow. 

There was a time when a sentence would form in one breath, 
but now I breathe hundreds—thousands—before it makes sense.

Journal writing has gotten easier.
I found something that works for me. But it's still hard to be vulnerable in public.
I want to be, though. I need to be.

I'll be around.

if this vacation was a snapchat filter

i had three weeks off of work in june, which was a little blah,
but i got to go home for a week!

i mostly went on runs (which was good cause the abundance of horseflies actually made me run),
went to the beach, and watched hgtv with my mom.
i also cleaned out my old room and that was buckets of fun.
i'm a winner! some of these are for softball & tennis, but most of them are for honor roll, 
perfect attendance, and writing. so now you know how cool i was. 
when i was young and angsty, i loved this spot in my little town.
i accidentally took this on a run one night, but i'm a little obsessed.
my step dad gave me this old camera of his, and one day i'll have enough money to restore it. 
i can't get over how classy it is.
and i leave you with the artistic brilliance of 2.5 year old Erin:

i'm a little bit in denial that it's the end of july and my favorite holiday is way over.

i'm not going to lie, i was a little sad at the prospect of not being in utah for the fourth.
it's a pretty great place to be during the summer.

but i got over it cause, dc, duh.

we went into dc in the morning to catch a parade and eat homemade pop tarts. do yourself a favor and get the peanut butter bacon.

then after a nap and the customary outfit change, i barbecued with my favorite cousins in virginia, and we watched some magical fireworks with the mall in the background and i officially called the day a success.

written on 6/14/13:
I sold my old iPhone on KSL this week. By that I mean, I had it posted on KSL for 24 hours (and 16 calls/texts) when a boy from my freshman ward came over to buy it from me. Because I'm lazy and directing strangers to my house feels weird. No, I will not drive two hours to sell you something. Anyway.

I have two roommates currently planning weddings. It's fun. It really is. It makes me embarrassed that I know so much about planning weddings, and also I wish more people would ask my opinions. Cause I have some real good ones right now!

I'm eating a bowl of mashed potatoes in the living room while everyone around me is doing said wedding planning. So, my life is real exciting.

I cracked my iPhone screen at work last week. It's a miracle it didn't happen before now. So, now I'm shopping for a phone case that I actually like, while open heart surgery is being performed on the kitchen table (for the phone, duh). Ugh, technology.

Friends are still getting married and I love it. Yay, Pinterest. Why am I not a wedding planner?

It's noon and I haven't eaten a single thing today. This random anxiety that makes it difficult to eat is getting out of hand.
