My Summer List

Hello all who are reading! Today I'm linking up with Sophie @ Capturing it. I've seen a few other bloggers post their summer lists too, so here's mine! :)

  • go on a picnic
  • have a sleepover with friends
  • go to the zoo
  • wash the car (I've never done this, we always go through a car wash)
  • have some sort of a water fight
  •  go to the beach (and maybe get a little bit of a tan to prove the trip)
  • go on bike rides
  • try one of the DIY crafts I've pinned
  • take a bunch of photos (maybe a photo shoot?)
  • go on lots of walks in the woods
  •  make lemonade or ice cream
  • keep on posting (at least once a week) here on my blog
  • get my G1
  • blow glow-in-the dark bubbles (got this one from Cindi @ Cotton Candy Clouds)

What Matters

I love my laptop, my camera, my bedroom, my books, my crafts I've made, my clothes and so many other things I've been blessed with. I use these things everyday and they make me happy. But something I know I have to keep on reminding myself is that they're just things. Yes, they add fun and entertainment to my life, but they shouldn't be what my life is all about.
"All we care so much about the way we look
And the way we talk, and the way we act
And the clothes we bought, how much that cost?
Does it even really matter?"

~B.o.B.-Both of Us
As lovely as things may be, they are more important things that our attention should be directed to. Like our family, friends and other loved ones. And, most importantly, God.

Let's use this wonderful life we have to reach out to others. To make a difference in this world. To be courageous and bold and radiate love. To live a life that will make God proud. Because all these gadgets and toys and 'stuff' are fun, but in the end, what really matters is how we lived our life, not the things we had in it.

"30 years from now, it won't matter what jeans you wore, how popular you were, what your hair looked like, or what sneakers you wore." ~ Unknown

I'm Back!

Hey guys! I'm back from my Europe trip and it was tons of fun! I did all sorts of awesome stuff like seeing Big Ben and the Parliament Building in London, seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night in Paris, and going to the Anne Frank and Corrie Ten Boom museum in Amsterdam! Here's some thoughts and comments about each place:
It rained basically the whole time we were there, but we used The Tube (subway) a lot so that helped with staying out of the rain for some of the time. Also, we found that everyone there is really helpful and nice,especially with giving directions when you're lost. I love the Brits!

The language barrier was kinda tough, especially when ordering food. We were at McDonalds, and my sister ended up getting a burger without any meat in it! On another note, if you go to Paris, you should stop by the lock bridge. Lovers leave a lock on the bridge and through away the key. Isn't that romantic?

Bicycles are big in Amsterdam. Cyclists have the right of way, so you have to be extra careful when crossing the street. The guide said that they emptied one of the canals once, and found over 2000 bikes! Also, I got to see the queen of the Netherlands because she came to the square!
