A New Day!

my view on the walk to work every morning... sometimes i pretend that i have woken up on that small island ;)

This year was by far the best birthday that I have had in quite sometime... possibly ever. First of all, thank you so much to everyone who made me feel loved and special and especially to Sean who spoiled me for an entire weekend! Wine tasting was amazing and I even enjoyed napping through the World Cup before dinner and a night on the town. Andy {we had a joint party} also mentioned that this was one of his favorite birthdays... so that also made me feel really good! We love you guys!

A lot has been going on lately. A lot, a lot. First of all... I have pulled about 7 of these out of my hair so far:

Yes, I am saying goodbye to the dreadies. Don't get me wrong - I am going to miss them and I seriously loved them, but 2 years is a long commitment to make when every day your hair looks like crap. I guess I'm not as carefree as I thought... because I really do take into consideration what people say and I also sort of missed running my fingers through my hair. I have a few more knots to untangle and they will be out... so expect pics because I've already planned a pretty crazy come back 'do!

I have also re-found a hobby! I am going to re-join a rock climbing club and hopefully meet some cool new friends who share my love of nature and who I can climb with {this means you jess!}. I have decided to take a personal interest in my health... especially since I need to be more concious since the transplant... and also started a food/exercise journal. I am so excited, because one of my best friends is doing this "challenge" with me, so we have been cheering eachother on constantly! Jessi is also going to help me with cooking... so I can prepare some {yummy vegan} meals for myself ;)

24 is going to be a good year............................ xo


  1. Happy belated birthday, Kara. I hope this year is your best one yet. I too am a Cancer moon girl [but a few years older than you!].

    Sorry to hear about the dreads but it sounds like you did the right thing. Sometimes what you think you want isn't what you really want!

    And yay for joining a rock climbing club and committing to better health. I recently decided to commit to better health too, but swimming is my thing.

  2. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! And wow... I'd have a fit if I was pulling that out of my hair... I'm practically bald as we speak. ha!

  3. aaww, bye-bye dreadies! i'm excited to see your new 'do, though. :)

  4. Hey, sorry to hear about your dreadies!
    I have to say though running your fingers through your hair is so underrated. I missed that too!


speak your mind! always!
