I had such a fantastic weekend though!! My older brother, sister-in-law, and the two cutest nephews in the world were in town from Idaho - so I spent so much time with them. Also, on the 24th, it's a Utah Holiday. The pioneers settled that day Days of 47' it's called. So it was BBQ galore and fireworks once again.
My family and I went to an amusement park in SLC called Lagoon. It's nothing compared Six Flags or anything, but it's still fun. Here are some pictures from my lovely weekend!! We were also celebrating my nephew Jaxon's 2nd birthday :)
(Don't worry, it's Root Beer)
(worst Sparkler in the history of Sparklers)
(And the rain begins...)
(Expecto Patronum!! Couldn't resist...)
(And it continues...stupid rain!!)
Sad story though to go along with that: this weekend when my family was in town, my sister-in-law was holding Jaxon, and they were next to all these pictures, and he pointed to them and said "papa" that's what they used to call Greg before he died. Greg was sad because he didn't think Jaxon would ever remember him. So we were all surprised, and she took him closer to the picture and asked where he was, and he pointed directly to him in the pictures. I'm so happy that he will remember Greg. I really miss him lately, but I felt his presence while they were here. It was definitely a happy feeling; nothing to be frightened over.
Now for the exciting tale!! I watched Magic Beyond Words: A J.K Rowling Story, on Lifetime this weekend. Let's just say it really inspired me to really get rolling on my writing!! J.K Rowling is one of my favorite authors because she created such a magical world--that's seriously something I hope to do someday. Well that day came sooner than I thought. I have been trying to force myself to create a story...I wrote some stuff but never stuck with it, because I wasn't excited about it and like I said, it felt way too forced. But then something just clicked, I cannot explain it, but it was amazing. It was there in front of me from the beginning. You can use examples from your every day life and your past! It's something that has never been done with fantasy fiction as of yet...I'm sure once I'm finishing my book it will have been done. I don't want to give too many details - not just yet, but I'm really getting down to writing and let me tell you, this is the one. I'll definitely talk about it more - so keep your eyes and ears open for it!!!
Anyways, have a great Tuesday bloggers!! xo.
