Take a Picture Tuesday (Mostly about my wonderful cousin)

This morning I was wondering what picture to post for today. I was going to take a picture of my delicious breakfast (eggs and turkey bacon) but I ate it before I remember to take a picture :(

And then I was on facebook just scrolling around, when I saw my sweet cousin, Caroline, had posted a link to her blog. As always, I went to it right away. That girl has a way with words, I tell ya! Every time I read her blog I am blown away by how sophisticated and wonderful she is. Since I've moved to North Carolina, her and I haven't been able to see each other as much as we did when we were kids. I used to go over her house and we'd play barbies, or Harry Potter (yes, we pretended to go to Hogwarts. We were always orphaned children who met on the train. My name was always Madison. Her usually varied, but would be something like Aselin or Hoku) for hours.

Since the Barbie days, she has grown into the most amazing woman. She is gorgeous, smart, funny, and incredibly sweet. I just love her :) If you can't tell. Anyway, here is a bit of her writing (which hopefully she won't mind that I stole right off her blog)

"if i were a month, i’d be september. if i were a day of the week, i’d be wednesday. if i were a time of day, i’d be 8:15 am. if i were a planet, i’d be saturn. if i were a sea animal, i’d be an oyster. if i were a direction, i’d be northeast. if i were a piece of furniture, i’d be an ottoman. if i were a liquid, i’d be skim milk. if i were a gemstone, i’d be an opal. if i were a tree, i’d be a white birch. if i were a tool, i’d be a stapler. if i were a flower, i’d just be a daisy. if i were a kind of weather, i’d be sunny and breezy and sixty-eight degrees. if i were a musical instrument, i’d be a cello. if i were a color, i’d be celadon. if i were a fruit, i’d be a nectarine. if i were a sound, i’d be heavy rain on the roof. if i were a food, i’d be buttered bread. if i were a place, i’d be la place des vosges, in paris. if i were a material, i’d be linen. if i were a taste, i’d be pink grapefruit. if i were a scent, i’d be rosewater. if i were an object, i’d be a new notebook. if i were a body part, i’d be collarbones. if i were a pair of shoes, i’d be black ballet flats."

Beautiful, huh? And here's a picture of lovely us!
Okay I couldn't find a good one of just us. But there's me in the blue, and
she's the cute blondie next to me :) Everyone else is my amazing family!
And now...I go to class. Boo.
