corner view "me"

Well, what can I say. I am a girl who loves music, art, and nature. I am a tomboy at heart.

I love to pretend that I'm an orphan or an animal, or from a different country. That way I can appreciate my life more. I like to sit alone and imagine, write, create, listen.

I love my brother and sister more than anyone could ever know. They are two of the few people I can always count on to be there for me no matter what.

I like to appreciate the little things that go as quickly as they come.

And I like to aim high and set particularly high goals for myself. Even though it often leaves me disappointed, I always end up learning the most.

 How's everyone else's summer going?

Old Friends and Family

Sorry I haven't been blogging! We went on a long road trip and I've been busy.

Lately, we've been hanging out with some old friends. Hayden, Josh and Jordan and their mom, Dawny. Dawny has been my mom's best friend since they were eleven. I've know Hayden his whole life. He's almost twelve. Josh is the middle child, he's really funny. And little Jordan. In fact, they're all funny! We have a similar since of humor.

Little Hayden and Me

 And here's all of the Menge and Marks kids now. We call ourselves the M&Ms!
From left to right: Jordan, 5 1/2, Annabel, 11, Me, 13, Josh, 9, Hayden, 11 1/2, Shawn, 7

And here's what happens when they have to go:

And then there's the cousins, Emma, seven and a half, Elijah, five, and Henry, two.

And we're staying at an awesome house with an electric dirt bike!
 I got a little wild ;)

And all of the kids have gotten into acting. Annabel's kinda the actress in the family. Can you tell?

Happy Summer everyone!
