Dr. Seuss Helped Me!

"Be who you are, and say what you feel. Because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." -Dr. Seuss
I read this quote on someone's Facebook page the other day and applied it to my life. As most of you know (through Facebook) the missionaries have been coming to our house every week on Monday for FHE. They are doing this because Grandpa Dragon is interested in learning more about the LDS church. I have found out though, that I would like to know more too! I have been paying attention to the lessons and they all really and truly make sense to me. I think I was told some mixed messages growing up, and I'm glad to have the opportunity as an adult to learn all the new and logical answers to questions about life and death (and life after that) that I have always had! So... The quote... How does it apply? I was worried that I wouldn't have the same friends or that people would talk about me behind my back. But, it turns out, they don't matter, and my true friends will love me no matter what! It feels good to get all of this out.  :)  I'm grateful that I have finally realized this.

What Is Reiki?

Hey everyone! If you are in to natural and spiritual healing... REIKI (Ray-Kee) is for you! Rei means universal, and Ki is the Japanese word for life force (in Chinese it's called Chi). Thus, Reiki is the universal life force which flows through us and keeps us going!
Sometimes this "Ki" can be unbalanced, messing up our Chakras and leaving us to feel just a little out of whack.
   I am a Reiki Master and I am looking for people who feel like something is holding them back, stressed, or just want to be in a better mood! Reiki is purely for meditation and relaxation.I do not claim to be a medical professional, or treat medical issues. BUT! I can sure help you feel better and let go of emotions that can sometimes be the cause of those issues. If you would like to know more about Reiki, please contact me at: with the subject line "Reiki". You should also check out this AWESOME website that may answer more of your questions. Thanks!    Click for more info!

A Poem I Wrote

I wrote this poem after I looked in the window... and saw my reflection. Haha. Deep, huh?

Looking through a window,
And all I see is a reflection.
Difficult to truly look past myself, and in to the world just beyond the glass.
THE WORLD they say, is made of dreams, of freedom.
Maybe it's said because we can't look past this mirror,
all we can see are the nightmares in the dark circles under our exhausted eyes,
or because we can't escape from those long lines across our worried foreheads.
Perhaps our windows are fogged with hot and cruel words on a cool and chilled sheet that we so longingly wish to step through.
If I could only place my toes atop the grass on the other side....
The dew would renew me.
The sun could refresh me.
The air could release me.
The world could REWRITE me.
If i could only look THROUGH this window.

New Blog, New House

Yes people, this time, it's real! WE HAVE A HOUSE. We are not renting, but buying! We have been house-hunting for what seems like ages now... and finally found the perfect home. (I say home, not house because that's what it is!) I've been PRAYING that we would find the right home and that it would find us. It seemed hopeless for a while, all the houses we looked at were either really tiny and ready to move in to, or really gigantic and in need of some major renovation. Yesterday we saw 5 houses and every one we saw, I liked (which is rare on our house hunts) so... we thought about putting offers on a few houses that day. BUT. When I walked into this house, I fell in love. I started tearing up. Yes, crying.... It felt amazing in that house.. just like home. We placed an offer, the owner "countered" it... and came back with a different price, which we agreed upon. NOW WE HAVE A HOME! Woohoo! Its 1560 sq feet, 2 level, four bedroom (2 up.. 2 down)  new tile in kitchen and bathroom, new granite countertops, BRAND new fridge and stove, new carpet, and new paint. I'm so excited to live with my perfect little family in our awesome house. Hope you enjoy the pictures! (The bedrooms are pretty much smaller versions of the living room)
