Moments of laughter with your family. That knowing look your husband/significant other gives you.
A new experience. The journey.
The little things in life...
Its not about the biggest house. The most expensive car. The biggest TV.
What is it really about?
Those that were affected by this disaster in Oklahoma weren't concerned with those big things.
Not their house. Not their cars. Not their belongings.
They were concerend about their family and friends. Were their loved ones safe? Where were they.
All they wanted was to hear from them, see them, and hold them close.
Take the time today to smell the roses. Cherish those moments with your loved ones, and hold them close to you.
Pray for those affected by this disaster, and be thankful every day for those that you have around you. There may be fights between loved ones, strife, anger, whatever it is... love, forgive, and move on. Mend those relationships, for that is what matters the most.

Tomorrow is graduation dayyy! OMG. I have one more project to finish by tomorrow AM and then I am done! Yes. I am alive. And I've been sleeping. Crazy, right?
*note* I may not sleep much tonight depending on how this project goes. #smh
But, I started celebrating a day early!
As you all know I am a TOMS addict. And I am a hugeee supporter, in that.. I won't buy any of the "knock-offs" that are out there. The reason behind that is a huge story that I will have to tell you later.
But right now, I have found a new website that I love! Pura Vida Bracelets.
Pura Vida Bracelets: The Story Behind The String from Pura Vida Bracelets on Vimeo.
I love them because they support local artisans in Costa Rica. And they always have bracelets that go to good causes! Like on the front page, you will find this...
Well, I finally made my first purchase today, and after I made the payment they sent me a link to share with all of my friends to give you 25% off! So, I knew I had to blog about it and share this code with you guys!
Oh yeah, you want the link? Here it is! ----> http://curebit.com/x/auYF5

First off, because I am wearing amazingly bright neon colors and it makes me super happy. :) Neon pink watch, a nude sweater with neon yellow accents, and neon yellow flats.
Oh here, I'll just show you...
Second, because I just got done with an award show at my school where I won two awards!
Award winning graphic designer? Yes. I am. *woohoo!*
And third... because it is one of my blog besties birthday today!! She is not from Houston, sadly, but I did get to meet her last year when she came here to visit. And we both have it planned that when she comes to visit next time we are running away to Austin for an entire day and we will have the best day ever! :D
Love you Rachel! Happy 21st birthday, I hope you have an amazing day. xoxo
Go wish this awesome gal a Happy Birthday for me! Rachel's Blog

When you set goals then need to be SMART. Specific. Measurable. Attainable. Realistic. Time Specific. Otherwise, you are just going to set yourself up for failure. Make smart goals so you won’t beat yourself up later!
- Freelance vs. Getting a job? Both? Figure that out.
- Go to a new networking meeting
- Get website up and running how I want it to look
- Order Pixel and Pair business cards
- Workout more this month than last month
Hopefully, I’ll be able to look at this one month from now with everything accomplished!
What are your goals for May?
