It's another new year. Another new start.
This year is a biggie though. I vow:
  1. My music is now my number one priority - I'm gonna start really trying to make it. and play my guitar regularly. and write more songs. and I'm gonna post them on here ;)
  2. America is the key. I will improve my SAT.
  3. I will learn to understand my boy's depression, and how to deal with it, and how to keep him smiling.
Because it's only doing those three things
that could make this new year
of 2010
be better than 2009
(the year that I fell in love no less)

Keep smiling kids, it's another year of life

4 gifts to do with sleeping
(hint much)
a new pair of my favourite sneakers
ashamedly twilight themed gifts - legacy of twinny and big sis
and lots and lots of books.

I realised it was the last Christmas where I wouldn't be a visitor
and that felt good.

With Love, Beau xx

p.s. we learnt that Albie and Benny struggle to keep secrets...
on them it's just cute.

White Wedding

On the 19th December of the year 2009
my fabulous momma
got married
to graz. or pops. or hammy bear. (he's adored by kids and step-kids alike as you can see)

It really was
the happiest place on Earth.
Plus it was a white wedding = perfection.

my sister suprised my mom with flowers

the 'Brigby' family

The Cast: Pip

Meet Philippa Grace Artus
Pip to me.

She's absolutely beautiful
a party animal
and probably the most entertaining
but also most reliable
best friend
a girl could ask for.

'As long as you love me so, let it snow'

No one expected it
because it never happens to us
but we got a whole load of snow
a beautiful blizzard
and I got to enjoy it
with my boy.

'L.O.V.E's just another word I'll never learn to pronounce"

Happy Birthday
Happy (belated) Birthday.

I love you always and forever.

With Love, Beau xx

Bake Fest

So College has been a little...
of late.

(the problem with friends dating is that if they break up it sucks)

The beautiful Miss Paris, however,
knew just how to make things right.
She brought gingerbread with her
and we painted it.

Absolutely everyone smiled.

"You're so very special, I wish I was special"

When you put the phone down
and your cheeks hurt from the smiles and laughs
(and you bathe in your victory)....

I think that's when you're In Love.

Clear Out

So I figured it was time
to stop drawing out the inevitable
that I would have to stop posting about
and make many many more memories.

These are the pretty little pictures
taken at pretty little moments
throughout our trip
to bubs homeland.

Pas-de-Calais we love you.

With Love, Beau xx

This year is important

This year
is the 18 year
and I'm so very very grateful
that I have the kind of friends
who just go to dinner
share memories
and laugh when they wanna celebrate.

On your birthday you shouldn't have to try too hard.

"Love is watching someone die"

That is my most favourite lyric from the Death Cab album plans
and that's what I've been up to lately.
making plans like these:

for scouts
and Psonar
and for my future.

Scary Stuff.

With Love, Beau xx

Memory Song

I don't really know how.
But this song.
This song.
Became a memory song.

Hearing it keeps me inspired
it keeps me going.

A walk along the coast
Boats, cafes and coffee
Hand in hand
sun and smiles

Picture Perfect really.

Days when you're holding things together (just)

No matter how hard days get
Death Cab
make everything logical
so I can fix things
and smile again.

P.S. Nothing is half hearted

The Cast: Paris

This is my northern lass.
She's so freaking smiley.
She's so freaking blunt.
She's the go-to for straight talking advice.
She's Sarah.
Or Paris.
And I'm ridiculously grateful to know her.

With Love, Beau xx

"Oh mother I thank you, for all that you've done and still do"

My siblings and I committed the ultimate sin:

we forgot my mother's birthday

it has to be small because I'm so ashamed.
My defence is at least I knew the date
(my sibs didn't).

So, anyways to make it up we had to do something beautiful
and the meal pictured below was the result of that.
Candlelight can right even th
e worst of wrongs.

Leek and Potato Soup
Salmon En Croute
Wimbledon Cake

(I made the kitsch little cake. isn't it adorable?!)

Friends Forever (Graduation)

So I've been thinking lately
that if I leave this town for another in England
I will feel terribly terribly trapped.

But equally if it's the USA
that ends up being for me
my heart will be absolutely wrenched
from my chest.

This song may just sum all that up...
I think.

Starter For Ten is a whole load of beautiful.

With Love, Beau xx

Le Touquet
Sun, Sea, Shopping
My Memories
'It will feel like you've been before'
'It feels like ghosts walk the streets'

oh and you'll never have felt more in love

(those little silvery bits? they're fish!)

These memories are the most precious of things.
More Soon.

With Love, Beau xx
