On the move!

I won a giveaway! Soo exciting. I won that gorgeous hat from Alanah. Check out her Etsy shop!

Speaking of giveaways, don't forget to check out my Giveaway for our Grow project!

In new news I am moving into Ottawa May 1st! Exciting and scary. I paid the rent, I'm moving in with three guys who seem laid back. I am on the jobhunt for a job in Ottawa now. I hate working at the restaurant here and I'm getting pretty much no hours. So I'm going to hit the city! Wish me luck.

Also a while back I read the book The Five People you Meet in Heaven also by Mitch Albom. (He's the one who wrote Tuesdays with Morrie). I'm not going to say much on it except it's a fantastic book and you should read. And here's a quote I marked because I really liked it. It's about loving someone who dies.

"Love is still love, Eddie. It takes a different form, that's all. You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousel their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it.

"Life has to end," she said. "Love doesn't."

Having had someone that I was in love with die (over three years ago, where does the time go) and aside from that having mortality on my mind so much lately, this passage had me trying to suffer back tears in a crowded Starbucks. Great book, please read!

Also... buy my stuff so I can afford rent? Hahaha. <3
