"All I Want To Do-oo-ooo-oo-ooo..."

Since my cancer diagnosis I have realized that I have simple wants, obvious wants, out of life. Some folks want to be a movie star or a doctor. I admire those people. However, all of that publicity and all of those extra years of school just do not interest me. I just want to live to be able to experience some major life experiences. I want..........

a picture quite like this with my sisters on their wedding days.

 to marry the one who makes me laugh
even when all I want to do is cry.

to stay at the Biltmore. 
Do I need to explain why? 


To see Ellen do a show on the 
dangers of tanning.

Even when I know I look like a fool.



To play dress up with my future daughter.

I think it sounds like a fun way to celebrate my 5 year cancerversary.


To always aim to be as classy as Jackie O.


To always find joy in the little things.

to have a Little Audrey.

Or a little super hero. 


To learn to do yoga...
and do it.

And when the kids are grown,
we are old and sick,
I want to still be with the one who makes me laugh.

I am sure this list will grow. I simply ran out of time tonight!

Happy Sunday!

What Would YOU Do?

A new year brings new resolutions, or for some of us, old resolutions that we still have not completed. Although a few days behind schedule, I am pondering my 2012 resolution list. Should I go to the gym more often (OK, let's face it, I never go to the gym.), should I cut out caffeine and junk food completely? Should I promise to be more patient with my sweet boyfriend? I already know of the things I will do without a doubt: battle melanoma with a smile on my face, love those in my life even more than I already do, be a loyal daughter, a spunky friend, and a hardworking employee.

However, I saw the above image on the oh-so-addicting (think of the male in your life and his Xbox) website Pinterest, and began thinking. What would I do if I knew I would not fail?

I think I would write. Not in just an online blog that my family and friends read, but in a way that changes the lives of others. I may only be 24, but I have thoughts that I have a burning desire to share with others. I don't talk much, despite what my boyfriend may say, but give me a pen and pencil, and I will keep you reading.

There you have it, my friends, my 2012 resolution: find time to write something that deserves to be read.
