People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow.
It’s like a picture of the tide coming in, somewhere in the Elemental Chaos.
this is beautiful.

I have so much food to eat and I really don’t want to take it with me when I move out in a week. No more grocery store runs. This is difficult.
I think I “have to” make cookies or cupcakes tomorrow. I have so much butter …

Dresses with boob windows are my favorite! ;)
Final birthday hurrah! Off to tioga-sequoia pint night!
Love at first sip: I’ve been losing mad followers lately because I’m become a bit of a beer-blr. But I can’t help all the “birthday” and “going away” occasions to eat, drink, and be merry!
I’ve been lusting after this horchata beer for a while … but can’t find it in 6 packs anywhere. After searching at multiple stores, I finally caved and just bought the seasonal 12 pack. It only came with two of these … but it was SO worth it in my mind.
Honestly, all of this indulging has me pretty over it. Can’t wait to fuel my body with simple stuff and feel better.

This is what 23 looks like on me. Double selfie - dirty mirrors and all. I may not be exactly where I wanted to be by this 23rd birthday, but I am still so thankful for the past year. I’ve undergone so much growth as a person … that is undeniable.
