The best part of the day
is when I lie awake at night
on my bed, body resting
over and over
speak to You
about the plans
You have for me.
We were there, standing by my apartment’s doorway, eying each other with the most surprised expression we could probably wear. He stared at me with his thick dark brows, trying to recognize my face I’m sure he has never seen before. The man stood two heads than me, scratched his curly mane with a tattooed left hand, and asked with a ridiculously snappy tone,
I can only stare. He reeked of beer and he looked a bit tipsy. This man probably got lost his way up in the studio.
“I’m sorry, I don’t know who Yuri is.”
Something happened today that made my heart swell with so much excitement and then anxiety. I believe those two come in pairs, like twin sisters always holding hands. Anyways, I got through the tension, and I am rewarded with a lovely discovery.
It’s something we’ve been waiting for the entire week without any idea it’ll arrive sooner than we expected. Ladies and gents, I now have the confirmation I’m setting foot on another soil. And it’s somewhere really cold.
So, we’re supposed to be going to Amsterdam this Spring. The family has decided upon this since last year and we’ve been looking forward to this quarter to get our passports out and fly, fly away. But some mishaps held us back, like some people in our group backing out the last minute, and we organized our documents a little too late. Tsk. At the back of my mind, we should have decided for ourselves early on. But all is good! I think everything went according to God’s plan, not ours.
Anyways, while preparing for the trip, I was wondering what I can give those folks over at Europe. I mean, economy-wise, their lives are totally much, much better compared to us here. They’re just a few hours’ trip away from Paris and Germany and they can go to amazing places I’ve only seen on print. Talk about envious! And let’s not talk about weather conditions.
So what can I give someone who basically had everything? This idea came out.
I’m not the type of blogger who changes themes so frequently, but there are instances when you just fall in love with the design and you just had to go through the entire day tweaking it for your website. I just had that feeling right now, after stumbling over Angie Makes‘ Mary Kate, a free theme created for hosted WordPress sites. My last theme felt too chic and black for me. I love the pastels, the colors, and the way everything is put together. I’m actually thinking that, if I ever get another itching for a new layout, I’m heading off to AM.
Originally, Mary Kate is a fresh combination of soft gray and pink hues. I love the gray part, but pink is overused for me. So what I did was I made my own accent, thanks to my linear watercolor brushes, and added a few white dots on it. Kind of imitating the former layout, but a bit moony. The result? Moony Miss.
