a few words about miss chelsea elizabeth...

she likes: making kites, dancing in the rain, adventures, little-while friends, letters, whole-leaf tea, crayons, bare feet, jumping in rivers/streams/creeks/waterfalls, language, catching the clock as it changes numbers, sleepovers, trains (big or small), cuddling & waking up before the sun rises, among other random things.

oregon-born, seattle-raised, bellingham-bred and franco-refined, she had moved back to the states from her affairs across the atlantic & now resides in columbia city with french husband & love of her life rémy. they spend most of their time taming the garden, taking care of their three chickens & two cats, and preparing the urban homestead for a new little chick of their own.

the (US) of a

so i bought a plane ticket from new york to seattle yesterday. for august 5.

i still have no idea how i will get to new york, but i`ll figure it out.

my emotions are out of whack right now. i am extactic to see people i have only been able to love from a distance for so long, but scared to love someone i care so deeply about from so far away for so long. i am extatic and then suddenly burst into tears. i`m scared. deeply scared. love is a frightening thing.

can i do this? i`m a strong girl and i know this, but am i strong enough to deal with more distance?

why do i do this? love people so intensely and then leave them? is this what i`ll do my whole life? i`m growing, i can feel it, and this time i know i`ll come back to once again wake up in his arms, but it doesn`t make leaving any easier.
