I love Jason Mraz and just bought his latest album “YES!” the other day. This is one of his more popular songs on the album, which he collaborated with the indie-rock-folk band Raining Jane. It’s called “Love Someone”

It’s a beautiful song that I can listen to over and over again. “Love is a funny thing” indeed but it’s the most wonderful thing at the same, both romantically and non-romantically. To you who needs a little lovin’ right now, I love you. Always will be your friend no matter what.

Sorry I haven’t been blogging much lately. School and work and life have kept me quite busy these past few weeks. This quote I find appropriate for the situation a good old friend and me are in right now. Life is good.

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.” – Octavia Butler

The Best First Date

I was listening to 93.3 KGSR this morning and on the show they have a segment called “The Daddy Diaries” where they talk about things dads do with their kids and family. Today, Kelly talked about this video and how much controversy this viral video is going.

I’ve read some of the comments and was disgusted by the negativity some of these people were throwing out there. Everyone has a right to their own opinion but seriously. Calling this pedophilia and saying the FBI is going to arrest this father is crossing the line. I personally found this video adorable and wish I will have a husband like that. One who cares about his kids enough to do something cute and heartfelt that also teaches them valuable life lessons.

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” – Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

 

“Your Way With Words” turns one year today! Thank you to all my followers and all the people who have viewed my posts. “Your Way With Words” has become my little baby and I am so excited to where it’s going this next year. Thanks to my friends and family for supporting this and my English professor for assigning us this as a semester-long project. Thank you!!!!!

Semi-Healthy S’mores Cake (Gluten-,Dairy-Free)

ncacho17:

My sister has just started a blog of her own. It’s called “Fab’s Treats”. She gives classic recipes and recreates it to fit a healthier lifestyle. So don’t feel guilty about eating those marshmallows with chocolate because it’s actually good for you. :) Follow her if you are a lover of food or are thinking of switching up your eating lifestyle for the better. Bon appetit!

A couple things I can’t live without: family and chocolate (sometimes wine). A favorite thing my sisters and I like to do on Saturday nights is renting a movie from the RedBox and making our own healthy version of classic desserts. As we were contemplating what we wanted, the craving for gooey s’mores could leave not our mouths. We attempted googling easy recipes for s’mores but none of them seemed appetizing or healthy enough to fit my lifestyle. So, I recreated my own version of a Betty Crocker recipe to fit my health limitations.

This semi-healthy* s’mores cake is gluten-. dairy-free as well as hassle-free. Note: it is INDEED MESSY. Overall, it takes about 25 minutes to create (19 of those minutes are baking the crust in the oven).

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate: 
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, 
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, 
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d; 
And every fair from fair sometime declines, 
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d; 
But thy eternal summer shall not fade 
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade, 
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, 
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”

- William Shakespeare

Beautiful. Love is captured in a clean, slick way, Shakespeare-style. :)

“Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

- Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

Pour Ma Jolie

Hello everyone! So my good friend Curtis just wrote a lovely villanelle poem the other day and I thought I’d share it with you guys (he doesn’t mind :)). If only there were more romantics like this guy in the world. Hope you guys enjoy! It’s called “Pour Ma Jolie”

10,000 red roses and Italian white wine,
a kiss for the one called mi amor,
all for ma jolie that is divine

Oh ma jolie how you’re one of a kind,
the gifts I’ll give you when I arrive at your door,
10,000 red roses and Italian white wine

The finest Parisian café is where we will dine,
I pull out your chair and gently whisper “bonjour,”
all for ma jolie that is divine

A gondola ride down the Swiss Rhine,
a serenade for you lit by shops of the shore,
10,000 red roses and Italian white wine

To the finest dance halls of Vienna we unwind,
embraced in my arms the one I adore,
all for ma jolie that is divine

For the one my heart does pine,
the finest treasures I’ll lay at your floor,
10,000 red roses and Italian white wine,
all for ma jolie that is divine.

– Curtis Des Marais
