Bucket List Tag: Skills Edition

That's right, I haven't forgotten!

The wonderful Evie at A Period Drama Fangirl tagged me for the "bucket list tag" back in July, so here I finally am after much procrastination and un-inspiration with a freshly made list! :D

Since I can't really think further than a week ahead (haha), and praise Jesus I have too many aspirations to ever write down, I decided to jazz up the tag and do a "skills" or "talent" edition! It consists of writing 10+ things that I wish to accomplish in the very nearby future (or not so near!) that are art or craft related.

I would love to hear about the things that you want to learn, so I tag everybody reading this! Yes, this means YOU! ;) 

Without further ado, here are 15 things that I *will* wrap my brain around very soon!

I want to learn how to...

15th Birthday Pictures

Here are the promised pictures from my birthday! Pardon me for the delay, I've been a little too caught up in reading lately... It's so addictive! You'll understand what I mean in a few scrolls ;)

This is the very skirt that my *super talented* sister, Sara, sewed for me as a gift! ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL?! It's a chevron 'maxi' skirt made for a shortie like me!
Thank You Lord for an awesome birthday!! I am so grateful to my family for making my day unbelievably fun and filling it with laughter and love! Merci, je vous aime tellement! :D

How about crazily good 'iHop' pancakes with homemade strawberry and chocolate syrup to start the day? YES!

And a game of Taboo? This game (along with Apples to Apples!) is dangerously captivating- once you start playing, you won't be able to stop and the phrase "Come on, one more round!" will repeat itself very often!
Wait... A COOKIE DOUGH, VANILLA, AND CHOCOLATE CAKE!?! How is this even possible?

*Drum roll* ... Yes, it's true, my babies- I mean, books, now have a home of their own!!! I received this beautiful bookcase from my parents to house all of the books that were engulfing my closet. They added a lovely touch with the vintage wallpaper in the background, and Sara organized the layout of the shelves, I love it! Psst, there is even some room left in the back of the shelves, so now I have a valid pretext to collect more books! :D 

I am so grateful to Jesus for giving me 15 terrific years with my ever-supporting and loving family! I also want to thank everybody who wished me a happy birthday, in person or online, you bless me so much!

♥︎ Now, dear reader and friend, please know that albeit you might not see it or feel it, you are so incredibly important and worthy to be cherished by the One who loves you more than words could ever say! I pray that you have a wonderful day celebrating whoever God made you to be and walking hand in hand with Him! ♥︎

In love from your sister,

Guess Who's Turning 15 Today?


That's right, today is my 15th birthday! :D I was born on the 10th during a very hot evening in MontrĂ©al at exactly 11:00PM, just before the  end of the 2nd millennium. Boy did a lot happened since then! ;)

Compared to 2013, this year the Lord has been showing me to slow down and simply rest in Him, and I'm very, very thankful for that!

Here is a Bible verse that I think fits my 15th year pretty well:

Psalm 116:7 MSG "I said to myself,
“Relax and rest.    
God has showered you with blessings.    
Soul, you’ve been rescued from death;    
Eye, you’ve been rescued from tears;    
And you, Foot, were kept from stumbling." 

Have you ever had a time like this when your year is the total opposite from the last one? Do you remember why and how it impacted you?

Today my family and I are visiting The Loft Board Game Lounge, and I AM SO EXCITED! Pictures will probably be sneaked here soon ;) I made a long list of games I wanted to play, such as CIS: The Board Game, Settlers of Catan, Clue, Fairy Tale, and a little bit of Blokus 3D, of course! What's your favourite board game or genre?

Alright, I will go enjoy this birthday now! I hope that you have a super Sunday, my dear friend and reader, and remember that it's very good to take a break from the hard work once in a while and savour the journey God has so lovingly given you!

In love from your happy sister,

P.S.: Tonight the 2nd supermoon of 2014 will appear! Keep your eyes open and tell me how it was in your region!!
