paper for days

Oh my god

So during our wedding and before or after we say our vows to each other Michael is going to have Noah (my son) step forward and he’s going to get down and present a box that will have a bracelet with his last name engraved on a small plate on it. He’s going to say a short “vow” to Noah of how if he agrees he wants to be his daddy legally and sign adoption papers so Noah will have the same last name too.

Then he wants to have a signing party a few months or so later and the day he signs the papers will be a day for them to celebrate together in the future. Kind of like a second birthday but just for him and his dad.

I don’t know how I found and became so blessed with such an amazing man who is willing to parent and raise my child as if he is his own and at the same time his family so accepting and loving of Noah.

I’m so excited to marry my best friend. I’m so excited to have our family “officially” come together.

The future looks bright and I’m walking into it with my arms and heart open.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

here’s to the women with fire in their eyes, the ones who sing too loud and love too hard. the one’s who know what they want, the ones who know how to get it, and the ones who will do whatever is needed to get it. here’s to the fighters.

here’s to the women with clouds in their eyes. the ones who hum under their breath, whose smiles can light up a thousand cities, the ones who love gently. the one’s who don’t want for much, but they will take what they do want. here’s to the lovers.

here’s to the women with cities in their eyes, cites of their very own. here’s to the ones who make things before other can even imagine them, the ones in love with creation. the ones who find what they want for themselves. here’s to the dreamers.

here’s to the women with civilizations in their eyes. the ones whose knowledge encompasses galaxies and centuries, the ones who thirst for knowledge. the ones who love recklessly and think rationally, who are the tacticians in a fight. here’s to the thinkers.

here’s to the ones who fight back, every day. here’s to the ones who persevere, no matter what. here’s to the ones who don’t take abuse and intolerance lying down.

here’s to all of us. 

happy international women’s day. keep fighting. 


Happy Day of the Dead heroes!

The halloween update is over and it was amazing, I’m gonna be honest tho…I was expecting a Dorado make over, something day of the dead related, with perforated paper everywhere and maybe a couple altars and ofrendas.

I imagine Reyes would be a little disappointed too so he started doing his own decorative crafts, embracing his inner mexican. Little did he know he’d have to do one for each hero… so expect more of these, maybe.
