"Ulia's birthday!"

It's my birthday! Yup, that happy day once a year that makes you older. Yeek, before I know it I'll be having grey hairs. Hahaa! And, for my birthday I got to go to beautiful the lake. It was such a perfect day! I also got a gorgeous swimming suit from my parents and sister. :D My sister actually made it! *sisterly pride!*  I can't wait to share the pictures we took at the beach with you all!



This morning I woke up to my youngest sister calling from down the hall "Ulia...Ulia!" I couldn't resist her adorable voice! I picked her up from her bed and she snuggled into my neck and said "I love you Ulia." * melts heart!* I was still half asleep so, I laid back down on my bed with her and she snuggled with me. I finally asked her "Do you know what day it is?" She looked at me and said "Ulia's birthday!"

  Okay, perfect gift! 

Me and my little sis! <3

                                                             
Then, I get breakfast in bed, including two of my most favorite things in the world! Watermelon and blueberry tea! And what better a thing to do than sit around for 20 minutes laughing and joking with your sisters? Then go down stairs and see all the beautiful decorations my younger brothers and sisters colored! Ah, such a wonderful day! Now, I'm going to have chocolate cake with fresh raspberries on top. I found this on pinterest and it looked oh, so lovely!



  

What kind of cake did you have for your last birthday?
What did you do for your last birthday?





News! News!

So yeah, I kinda left you all on cliff, hanging off the edge, wondering "what is wrong with Julia??!"

 Okay, okay, so some of you may not have thought that at all, but I like to think that people were worried about me because I just walked out of internet world. ;) Hahaa.


And, no, I didn't take this photo myself! lol! I'd have to be very  talented to do that! ;) 

 But, what honestly happened was:

  A new schedule 

  Starting of a new school year

  Math backfire (I'm a little behind.. But, I'm working on it!)


  New priorities (Not saying you guys aren't great, but I've seen that being on the computer pushes my sibling away from me, rather than bonding with them. I'd rather have a bonding relationship than a blog that will only last so long. Don't worry, I'll still check my email, blogs and post once in a while. I still love my friends, their blogs and keeping up with my pen pals, but, it just won't be top priority in my day. :) )


 Using up every Summer moment! ( I love playing outside with my siblings! Chalkville, here I come!)

 Enjoying learning more about life! 

 And I have found a new love. Coffee! ( I used to drink it all the time when I was younger, but 2 years ago it started to make me feel sick. It doesn't any more! :D )



 What new is going on in your life? Are you excited about a new school year?
Have you been working on anything new?

 I do have something new and exciting to share with you on my next post! 




♪Sunshine, lolly pops and rainbows everywhere!♪


Are you shaking yet? Are you looking at your bare feet and wishing they could be like that forever? Unless I'm the first person to tell you this today, let me inform you. It is August.  Yes, people, August! Only 4 months until December and 5 until the New Year. Yeah, I agree, lets get onto happier topics. =)

 Now that my giveaway is over I'm kind of stumped on what to post about. I've been extreme-busy, so I haven't had time to think up things like I usually do. I honestly don't even know why I'm sitting here when I have a million other things to do. ;) But, I'm in the blogging mood. Summer reading is ending soon, which really stinks because I love it so! I'm feeling a bit down today. Almost all my friends are hurting in some way, and I feel horrible for them. What is even worse, I can't even help them because we live hundreds of miles apart.

 But, then, I saw a rainbow. Yes, a big wonderful rainbow! I took a few photos with my family's iPad, but since I don't know much about computers and how to put photos from the iPad onto the computer, I'll just grab a rainbow photo that was by our house before. 


So, life may not be "♪Sunshine, lolly pops and rainbows everywhere!"♪, but after a storm, there is usually a rainbow. ♥



And, even though at times you may just want to stay in bed all day, remember this;
 " I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. Genesis 9:13

 God won't give you more than you can handle today. Don't worry, all is well with Christ! 

Have you ever had days like these? 
How are you doing? I'd love to know more about my readers! Tell me one fun fact about you in a comment. =)
