all grown up

Hello my name is Aimee and this is a real life adventure...

Despite being 22 and a half I still feel like I'm fifteen most days, and let's be honest I'm often confused for a high school student. Even though I drive, am in college, and having the most amazing internship experience I call my parents all the time and ask their advice on life issues, similar to asking for permission to stay out late. Despite my youthful mindset, every once in a while something will happen that reminds me I am a full fledged adult with big girl responsibilities and real world consequences.

For instance, after work I checked a voicemail asking me to call my Dad back when I had the chance. After hanging up from our two minute conversation I had gathered that my Dad had been experiencing chest pain and was in the hospital overnight for monitoring, but that I should not be alarmed only informed.

While I'm glad this little event can be chalked up to anxiety and stress I started thinking about the scenario had my Dad actually had a heart attack. It was a quick whip across the face for thinking I could be young forever. No more are the days of Mom and Dad taking me to the doctor, but checking in with them to make sure they are managing their blood pressure and cholesterol.

For now I am praying for health and new lives, instead saying goodbye to the ones already here.

hoping for happy things.

pumpkin king

Hello my name is Aimee and this is a Halloween adventure...

Happy Fall everyone!!!

Pumpkin carving 2010 took place in my Momma's and Mike's backyard.

Not only was it a chance for the entire family to become completely slimed in pumpkin guts, but it was also the day the Williams (Aunt Lani and Kaylee included) met Mike's family. An afternoon of chili, cutting things open, and pie it was like we had been family all along.

A few shots of us getting festive :)

Sadly enough, the pumpkins you see here didn't last very long.

Not quite sure if it was the rain we had this week or my awful carving skills (most likely a combination of both) but mold ended up covering my owl pumpkin.
We had to toss it last night.

I hope your pumpkin lives to light fright night!
