Fall into me.

Happy first day of fall, loved ones! I am so excited that my favorite season is finally here. The weather is beautiful, my brother’s birthday and Halloween are next month, and my birthday is in November. Last night, the weather was so gorgeous for the first time in awhile that my boyfriend and I danced outside to some random house party’s music that we could hear. I was shivering a bit, but I was happy to be shivering!

Anyway, yesterday was Paul Mitchell the School Fresno’s “Super Service Saturday”. We were able to completely book ourselves out with clientelle and have a “salon reality” kind of day. I was supposed to be my teacher, Stephanie’s assistant for the day without any clientelle, but ended up completely booking out! First, I had a walk-in bridesmaid that wanted an updo. She was extremely picky, but I really appreciated it. I haven’t really had that picky of a client before, but it made for great practice. Not only was she picky, though; she gave me about fourty five minutes to finish her updo as she was running late for the wedding. I curled her long, beautiful hair in a short amount of time, we tried a few different styles, and this is how it turned out:

She was very happy with the way it turned out and so was I. To keep the curls in for the wedding, I sprayed her hair with Paul Mitchell’s “Hot Off the Press” quickly after I blowdryed her hair, right before I curled it. After each section that I curled, I sprayed Paul Mitchell’s “Spray Wax” all over and let them set. I can guarentee that those curls didn’t go anywhere!

Shortly after my bridesmaid client, my cousin’s girlfriend came in and wanted to be a blondie! We’re taking it slowly, though, and starting with highlights. I haven’t done highlights like that, though, and I was so excited to test my skill level. We did some vertical slices with teasy lights in between, and some random hand-painted highlights every here and there. I had the greatest time doing her hair and I can’t wait for when she comes back in six weeks!

Isn’t she beautiful?

Anyway, I want to talk about life. My life, on September 12th, 2013 at 4AM, changed drastically when I lost my beloved Papa. I never realized just how important truly ‘living’ is until now. My grandfather loved fishing, going to the casino, smoking his cigarettes, and being a husband, friend, father, and papa. He always smiled, laughed, and made sarcastic stabs at me that I loved dearly. I actually think that I may have gotten my sense of humore from him, and I will forever be proud of that. He was just an all-around gracious, loving, and hilarious soul that I love more than words can say. My brother is fortunate enough to carry on his name and looks, and I am going to do my best to carry on his love for life and his infectious smile.

Life, to me, may have changed in a negative way, but I am learning to see the positive in everything. I have been giving my all to get even closer to The Lord and I couldn’t be happier about that. It’s unfortunate that it took the death of my papa to motivate me to do so, but I’m thankful either way. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved and followed Jesus, but I’ve never been more compelled to love and cherish The Word of God each day. It’s a beautiful feeling knowing that I’ll be reunited with my papa in Heaven someday.

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth
That we will enter in this rest with wonders anew

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

There will be a day with no more tears
No more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

I know the journey seems so long
You feel youre walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where youve walked out all alone

Troubled soul dont lose your heart
Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty thats in store
Outweighs the hurt of lifes sting

But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering

There will be a day with no more tears
No more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

I cant wait until that day where the very one
Ive lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that Ive faced
To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery
O, this is why, this is why I sing

There will be a day with no more tears
No more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

There will be a day with no more tears
No more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face

There will be a day he will wipe away the tears
He will wipe away the tears
He will wipe away the tears
There will be a day
