Healing Rain: A Sad Love Poem About Heartbreak

I thought this was sad, but yet beautiful. Fitting for a gray rainy day.

Healing Rain: A Sad Love Poem About Heartbreak
By Injete Chesoni

I thought my tears would make you love me again,
I thought my tears would fall on the roots of our love
and nourish it like rain.
I thought my tears would pierce your heart,
and help us to make a brand new start.

I thought my tears would make you feel my anguish and pain,
and draw you back into my arms again.
I thought my tears would flow with yours
and create for us a pool of love.
I thought my tears were heavenly showers
with magical healing powers.
A trickling sent from the heavens above,
That would fill our hearts with joy and love.

So I cried when you left me
To ease my pain,
I cried when you left me
To bring you back into my arms again,
I cried when you left me,
Because I thought that tears were healing rain.
But I found out that sometimes they are not,
They are just tears and searing pain.

Changes are coming my way....

Most people can look back over the years and identify a time and place at which their lives changed significantly. Whether by accident or design, these are the moments when, because of a readiness within us and a collaboration with events occurring around us, we are forced to seriously reappraise ourselves and the conditions under which we live and to make certain choices that will affect the rest of our lives.

- Frederick F. Flack

I should have shared these photos yesterday, but I was busy getting ready for a dear friends going away party, and I didn't realize the changing weather to come was also a sign of my changing mood.

Mood: Sad....

Friend has left.....:/

St Marcus Day Festival Party Rockers

Well what can I say about the St. Marcus Day festival party which was held in Forks, Washington during Stephenie Meyer Days 2011?  Well only one word................... 

                                EPIC!!!!  =0)

No really each minuet we had in Forks was EPIC, and if you can I highly suggest, some day, you go and visit this town and surrounding area for yourselves; in order to experience it's wonderful people and charm.   

We had such a fantastic time its to hard to explain everything we saw, did and experienced.

However, the party that was put on by Leppell's was without a doubt the, -well just watch this little video I put together for you.  You'll see it was great! 

Can't wait to go back again next year!  =0)  Enjoy and thanks for watching!

More photos of the party are on our facebook page: Our Twilight Corners 

Wish I was closer to the Hood, Mt. Hood that is...

A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?

Bye Summer

I don't know about you all, but I am sooo not ready to say good-bye to summer. Unfortunately today is the last day of summer and our Northwest rainy season is fast approaching. However, the morning started with another wonderful sunrise!

Had to share. :0)

I just love our earth and all it has to offer us! Beautiful! Make sure you stop to enjoy it every chance you get. :0)

Morning is when the wick is lit. A flame ignited, the day delighted with heat and light, we start the fight for something more than before.

I took these photos off my front porch and had to share there beauty! The lighter one was 10 minuets later then the other two and it's amazing what 10 minutes can make.

Have a great day everyone!! :0)

Breaking Dawn Bella ~ Stephenie Meyer Days 2011 Costume Contest ~ EPIC

Our second day in Forks was not without even more fun and excitement to say the least.  One of the events offered during Stephenie Meyer Days was a costume contest that anyone and everyone could have entered and of course my Corner gals did just that.
Left to right: Lisa, Olivia and Savanna
My little Savanna was cafeteria Rosalie and Olivia was Breaking Dawn Bella.  They looked amazing and what was even more incredible was the fact that Savanna took first place, and Olivia took second.  EPIC!  Yay to Our Corner of the World!!!
I have to say though, everyone who entered the contest looked so unbelievable and it was fantastic to see so many people show up and come out as a characters from one of the Twilight movies.  Personally, I would like to see more of you dress up and enter next year! =0)
However, whats even more surprising, and I wish I had more pictures of Olivia dressed up as Breaking Dawn Bella to show you, but unless you have been living under a rock and have not seen the second trailer, Olivia did a shockingly great job dressing up as Bella the night after her wedding night to Edward.  lol  
Our Corner Bella looks pretty close to Summits Bella if you as me!
Summits Bella
Oh no, lots of feathers. lol 
Well at least our hotels headboard is in one piece because we did not leave the room feather free that's for sure.  Sorry Forks Motel!  We didn't leave much of anything feather free.  We had feathers everywhere after we were finished getting Olivia ready for the contest.  From her hair, to ours, and the floor we had them practically scattered all over Forks, but it was worth it because it was all for the love of Twilight fun!
Our Corner Bella was so good even Aro couldn't read her mind either. He tired and he even tried to sick Jane on her, but nothing worked.  Oh and lets not forget the Groom.
Yes, Edward might have been tight lipped about the Wedding night, but by the look on his face I  think its pretty clear he too enjoyed himself... HA HA  

The whole day was fun and this costume contest was just the tip of the iceberg for us because we still had lots of shopping to do and the St. Marcus Day festival party as well.  =0)  Another EPIC time of our Twi-lives.  

If you want to see more photo check out our facebook page: Our Twilight Corner and I have some video uploaded as well... =0)   

Oh sorry for all the screaming, but I got soooooooo excited! lol 
And the Winner is..... Yay Savanna!
Savanna looked so good!
Olivia Rocked Breaking Dawn Bella!
Lisa was too cute!
James the Tracker looked pretty good too!

Welcome to Forks!

We made it! 

Pulling into Fork and seeing that sign was beyond fantastic.  
Mainly because it was Lisa's dream to go to Forks and it felt good knowing I helped that dream come true.  =0)  
Plus it also meant we could finally stop driving, get out of the truck for a while and start to enjoy Forks and Stephenie Meyer Days!
The Chamber of Commerce is a cool little first stop, and the people who work there are so fun!
Oh Yeah had to get pic's of Bella's truck... I think that truck has been photographed more then a super model don'tcha know... lol 
However, we did not stay in Forks for long..... I know how funny is that. We ran off to La Push for an afternoon of fun in the sun at the beach... Yeah right!  It was booty cold there.. ha ha Duh!

Not enough Starbucks on Hwy 101 North to Forks

Day two of our travels to Forks Washington in order to experience Stephenie Meyer Days was not without a ton of coffee; no it was not without heaps, loads, and oodles of this liquid oomph mover!  We had five women, no we had five Twifans, in a small hotel room and we were all too excited to sleep.  Need I say more?  I think I knocked off around 1:30 am, but my mind and bladder decided to wake up at 3:30am and I could not go back to sleep. Ugh.
Oh word to the wise, pack your own coffee press, if you are a java junkie, when traveling to Forks because once you leave Aberdeen Washington there is not another Starbucks or Dutch Brothers for miles!  MILES!

Oh, another word of caution, if you are addicted to jitter juice, make sure you use the powder room as well, before leaving Aberdeen, because when the nectar of the Gods kicks in there are noooooooooo good stopping grounds along the way... Unless you enjoy being stared at by the local wild life, and that wild life might not always walk on four legs. Just sayin is all..  o.0

Anyway, our trip was filled with a number of awww moments, but one place you must stop at on your way to Forks, headed north on Hwy 101, is the Big Ceder Tree.  Yes a tree.  Don't go there its a cool tree!  =0)
 This tree is a few miles before you reach Forks and its one of the coolest trees I have ever seen, and trust me I love trees and have seen a few very cool trees.  LOL   Anyway, this might not be Epic in your world, but if you like nature and ever get a chance to travel to Forks then make sure you stop at the BIG CEDER TREE.  
Savanna and Olivia look so tiny next to this tree
It was at this tree we really started to feel ourselves get our SPARKLE on for Forks.  We knew we were close and since we were in the woods it was hard not to act a little TwiCarzy.  lol  
Anna from Twili-fye
Anna from Twili-fye thought she was a Spider-Monkey and Savanna and Olivia tried to sparkle in the sun.  Tee hee 
Savanna is trying to sparkle... 
Savanna kept saying, "Sparkle dang it sparkle, but it wasn't working.  lol 
Olivia thought they sparkled there for a minuet. 
Olivia was just so happy to be away from reality, and on a girls Twi-weekend that she couldn't stop hugging everyone.  =0)  It was a very sweet trip to say the least..

Unfortunately, this is what happens when you don't get to Forks before your morning thunder wears off... lol

My Review of Stephenie Meyer Days 2011

I have no words to truly describe how FANTASTIC Stephenie Meyer Days 2011 was this last weekend in Forks, Washington.  Words cannot explain how much I enjoyed the festivities they offered all of us!

We made it!
You see there is just soooo much to see and do I am not sure if I can fully describe to you how freaking fun this all was for me and my group of friends.  We all had a wonderful, fantastic, and amazing time in Forks!!! 

If I had to sum it all up in one word it would be EPIC.  Yes totally cliche I know, but this trip was completely EPIC and I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

Forks was wonderful and it was fantastic meeting a lot of the residents who live, work and help to put this event together!  There was one person in Forks who really made a great impression on me and my group and her name is Whitney Stephens-Flagg.  Whitney is a wonderful Forks resident who played phone tag with me, and I am sure tons of others as well who were all trying to buy tickets, cloaks and get the inside scoop on all the events taking place in Forks.
Yay its Whitney Meyer
The first thing I thought of when I saw and met Whitney, who is this super sweet event planner from Leppell's, is that she looks a lot like Stephenie Meyer.  Well I wasn't the only one who thought this and Whitney told me the other day that she will get to play SM herself in next years SMD's 2012! YAY!!! I sure hope I get to see Whitney play this part next year because you ROCK girl! =0)

I will defintaly say this if you have not gone to Forks for SMD's then YOU NEED TOO!!!! Heck, just go to Forks no matter when or why!!!  Its a great little town with amazing people and its a must see! 
We all look so cute in front of Bella's Truck
Anyway, what made this trip completely EPIC for me was the fact that my TwiBFF Lisa, who I had never met before, came all the way from Florida to live out her Twilighters Dream by going to Forks with me, and my Corner ladies.  Well I am sure we were not part of that dream to begain with, but we helped make it all happen for her that's for sure.
Lisa looks ready to fly for the Pacific Northwest to me!
After we picked Lisa up from PDX, on Thursday evening, we headed off to Centralia, Washington which was our first resting spot for the night.  Usually, SMD's does not start until Friday, but I like to get a head start on things.  Plus this way we can stop in Kalama, WA along the way to see the "Forks" High school as well.   
Its all of us in front of the school.. Yay...
Anna, Savanna, Lisa, Olivia and ME!

Lisa was ready to run into the wood and
have Edward, "Say it Out loud".... lol
It was totally cute to see Lisa's face when she got to the High School that was used in the Twilight movie.  We had already planned to see some of the filming locations after we came back from Forks, but this spot is right off of I-5 so it was a must right away!
Anna was ready for sure!
Some of us have been to the High School in Kalama before, but Lisa of course, and Anna from Twili-fye who was also with the Corner Crew heading to Forks had not see this before, "Newborns," so they were just tickled pink and thirsty for more once we got there...=0) 
We won, we won! =0)
Our first night in Forks and one of the events that was taking place was Bella's bridal shower which was being hosted by Alice, of course, at Alice's Closet. Our group took 1st place in the toilet paper wedding dress contest! Such a fun night!
Angie from Pure Twilight is on the right.. Yay!

Also, we met up with Angie from Pure Twilight in Forks as well, and Vamped it up a bit not only with her,but her mom and her sister too. Look we had Twilight beer in Forks.... Ha ha I love it!!! It was once again amazing to meet them all!
And 1st place goes to..... Our Twilight Corner!
The costume contest was freakin amazing.  Everyone who dressed up looked soooo good.  Our little Savanna, who is on the right, took the grand prize for being cafeteria Rosalie in the costume contest which was held on Saturday. She was so sure she wasn't gonna win, and just entered for the fun of it, that when they called her name she just stood there.. It was classic and fun.  Whoop Whoop!

Olivia took 2nd place!!! Yay!
Aro was trying to read Olivia's mind who was dressed up as Breaking Dawn Bella for the costume contest.  It was awesome that Our Corner gals won something at SMD's.  
Jacqueline and her daughter found Olivia from Our Twilight Corner in Forks
Then just when you think it cannot get any better we actually met some of our page fans in Forks as well... WOW!   =0)  Above is a pic of Jacqueline and her daughter who were the cutest things ever!  Two very sweet people and unfortunately they did not get a hotel room in Forks so they had to drive the 57 miles one way between Port Angeles,and Forks every day they were there in order to participate in all the events.  Such great Twilight fans!   
Oh no Savanna Edward is
eyeballing your neck!
The St. Marcus Day Festival was another EPIC event you all will just have to check out for yourself and pray I can get the video's uploaded before Christmas.  LOL  =0)  
Yay its Hilly and Hannah!
Yep, we even ran into Hilly and Hannah from The HillyWood Show.  Not only did we get our pictures take with them, but we got them to sign our Twilight book... Yay!  BEST TRIP EVER!!!
The look-a-likes were fangtastic!
The look-a-likes who came to Forks for SMD's were awesome!  I know they are not the "real" Twilight cast members however, I do hope they all come back next year because I am soooo getting their autographs!  They were fun, friendly and very gracious to us all!  Our little corner cannot get over how much Alan Mitchell looks like "Edward."  Tall, dark and yummy!  Tee hee 
We are all team Alan now for sure... =)  (Don't worry we know he is taken!)  Its all for the fun of Twilight ya know! That's a team none of us can deny we are all on when you participate in an event such as this one!

So you see it was EPIC, truly EPIC, and I will be counting down the days until next years SMD's 2012 which will happens on the14th-16th of September!!! =)

There are more pictures posted on our facebook page, Our Twilight Corner, and I will try to get our video's on my YouTube site as soon as possible too.  OurTwilightCorner
