I, uh, wrote a bunch of stuff…

And now it is all gone. It’s probably for the better, I don’t think it was very good for me to brood over anyways. I will instead talk about… quotes. If you haven’t noticed by now, I like quotes! I like big quotes and little quotes, green quotes and mean quotes. Curly quotes and straight quotes. I like quotes that jump up and down. I like quotes that make me frown. I like quotes that are sweet and rhyme, quotes are good almost all the time! I like them in my soup, I like them…uh… on a stoop. I like them everywhere! What’s your favorite quote? Do you dare?
So, yes. Comment with your favorite quote, or just one that you like. PUHLEEZE.

June 1st:
Happy June everyone! Jeff and I decided to take Maya to Gallup park (an especially nice one, it has duckies and lily pads).
Can you find us?

June 2nd:
Occasionally Jeff gets weird about his beard and he’ll shave it off in stages. First (this time), is the “Amish man.” Appropriate considering our last name is Yoder. Anyway, I don’t mind this look very much… last time he did the “Chop” which made him look like a crazed motorcycle man- handle bar mustache and everything… yikes, then the super bushy weird 70s mustache, then down to the creepy french villian (I swear I refused to kiss him), then completely off. He looks 17 when he shaves completely, and while I love him forever, I must admit it’s a little weird. He thinks it’s hilarious. HA HA. I will keep you posted with each stage so you can all be witness to this atrocity.

June 3rd:
Maya LOVES to go for drives. Sometimes the wind pushes her ears and face back so much that I think she slightly resembles a polar bear.

June 4th:
My grandpa turned 89! I don’t think he looks a day over… 75. yes. He is the best. I pretty much love everything about him. Jeff and I gave him a bottle of our home-brewed Pinot Grigio. I love being able to give wine for gifts. I made the label and tied sparkly ribbon around the top. Voila! Anyway, tonight we went to my parent’s to celebrate. I feel so grateful to be able to appreciate all of my grandparents into my adult life.

No, I don’t have a favorite quote. I have trouble picking a favorite anything for fear that I might be cheating myself out of something wonderful. This one seems fitting for today though:

“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.” -MLK Jr.

    I don’t necessarily have a favorite, but here are two that popped into my head when I read your entry:
    “‘I see no one on the road,’ said Alice.
    “‘I wish I had such eyes,’ said the king fretfully, ‘to see no one! And at such a distance, too.'”
    –Alice in Wonderland

    “One must first have chaos within oneself to give birth to a dancing star.”

    Love this one,
