Surprise Visit

I’ve been meaning to post for the past two weeks, but I got really busy. That means I will be writing a couple of posts today. One reason I was so busy is because my sister came home for a visit. She was on spring break from college. I didn’t even know she was coming home until she surprised me at work Friday night (the 6th). She and my mom had kept her visit a secret for a month. Since she was only here a week, we spent a lot of time together. We mostly just hung out and watched Netflix. Last Thursday we ended up going to the beach. I found a bunch of big chunks of shells that I’m going to use to make jewelry with.

I couldn’t really find any whole shells and the ones I did find were to thin to make jewelry with. I like these pieces though and they are nice and thick. Even thought I’m not really a fan of the beach, it was still nice to being there and feeling the energy of the ocean. Another thing I like about the beach is that it’s where all the elements come together; earth, air, water, fire. The elements plus the salt in the water make it a very healing place. The only thing I didn’t like was that it was really packed.

One morning we ate breakfast at a 50’s diner because my sister really likes 50’s memorabilia.

After breakfast that day, we went thrifting. I found some really nice things. I found this beautiful wooden box that I put my crystals and gemstones in:

I also found this awesome filo-fax style planner. This was my favorite because I had been really wanting one of these about a month ago. The only ones I could find online were $40+. This one was $2! The down side is it smells like cigarettes. I’m going to have to figure out how to get that smell out.

I also found these cute little jars for my herbs:

I didn’t find these jars during this trip, but I really wanted to show them:

I’m going to use these to put my baking ingredients in.

All in all, it was really nice seeing my sister again. The last time she had been home was Christmas which is a long time because we are really close. Now I just have to wait until summer to see her again.
