Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
until they forget that they are horses.
It's not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it's more like a song on a policeman's radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
to slice into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it's noon, that means
we're inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we'll never get used to it.

I cant even remember what I last updated about, or even what to update about, as my life is pretty unexciting, so this may be all over the place. 

The girls are doing fantastic. Growing up much to fast for me :( I am officially a mom of a 5th grader, 3rd grader, 2nd grader AND kindergartner!! 4 out of 5 of my babies are offically in school. It blows my mind! Angelyna and Ciarra have been spending alot of their summer break with their dad. I miss them terribly, but I really appreciate the fact that Charley has really been stepping up in that department and I can see how much it means to the girls.  Weve been spending as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying the sunshine and me just enjoying them. Mayson is SO big now, ugh. She talks so much and is the sweetest thing.  Slip N Slide, water balloon fights, summer evenings in the park! Its been really awesome.

I started school! Its been pretty amazing, but a bit overwhelming.  Its been a adjustment being away from the girls all day after being home with them for so long, but I honestly really enjoy it too. Its a nice break and so nice to socialize during the day. I have classes fulltime 8-4 monday through friday. I am blessed to have a very supportive family who all alternate taking care of the girls during the day for me. We may not always get along, but its nice to know they realize how important this is to me and to the girls as well and help me out. I know others arent as lucky. Plus, once school starts again, it'll only be Miss Macy during the week. Homework kicks my ASS, since I have 6 classes this semester. It is so hard to find the time to study and do homework every single night. Me and sleep are NOT friends right now!!! But I honestly love it, Im a nerd and I love learning, I love debates and discussions, I love being back in school and the atmosphere and the awesome people Ive met. Its been rad. And it feels so great to feel productive and like I'm finally working towards my goals, you know? I'm so close, I can always taste it!

mm what else is new? I feel like I'm forgetting stuff. Oh, UM CAN YOU BELIEVE ANGELYNA WILL BE 10 YEARS OLD ON THE 21ST!!!! Im serious. How is that possible?! Double digits. Crazy. She is so mature now. Her personality is very...nerdy. Haha. She loves pokemon and sonic and video games and computer games. She loves sports and gossiping to her friends lol She is SO fkn smart. It blows my mind. And very artistic, she loves to draw and is really good at animation type stuff. She has such a good head on her shoulders and I am so proud of her, so so proud.

I  havent had as much time to pick up my camera lately. It makes me sad, I really miss it. I had the most awesome family portrait session earlier this week. Reminded me of why I love doing it so much, which is always a great feeling. I hope once I can get things more settled and in a better routine, I can make more time for it. I also REALLY want to learn film, so I need to work that in as well :)

I miss my boyfriend, alot. I never had any idea how hard a long distance relationship could be, but it is quite possibly one of the hardest things I've done to date.  I  miss him all the time. ALL the time. Everything reminds me of, makes me think of him or something we did together, which just makes me miss him more. You get the drift... lol He is worth every second of it. He is quite possibly the most amazing man ever. And that is a understatement, ha. He really is my "other half". I am, hands down, the luckiest girl in the world. 

Anyways, I shall spam you with pictures now :)

Today, the girls and I took our first trip to the beach! It was amazing. Freezing cold though, which was way lame since the forecast did not say that whatsoever! But the girls barely noticed and were all over it. They had the best time, as did I with them. It really blows my mind how I created such beautiful, incredible children. They are everything to me and I am so blessed to be their mother!













My 4th of July this year was A-Fucking-Mazing! I spent 4 days with Matt in Phoenix and we had the BEST time. Swimming, fireworks show at the lake, dinner with friends, he surprised me with tickets to Thursday && Taking Back Sunday, church, our favorite resturaunt, delicious sangria, lightrails && balloons, romantic  home cooked meal made just for me, ect. I love him more than anything. True story.

Despite getting barely any sleep last night and feeling like a complete zombie all day long, today was a really wonderful day!

It was a beautiful day outside today, we decided to have some outdoor fun! We colored in the backyard, played airplanes with Uncle Alonzo, water balloon fights && slip n slides, ice cream from the ice cream man! SO much fun. I absolutely adore days like this with the girls. I also got some pretty amazing news in the job front world. Its all been kind of a whirl wind, but I really feel....proud. I know that I am my own worst enemy and I tend to really put myself down alot, but to have people WANT me is such a huge confidence booster. I guess it really is all about truly believing in yourself and your dreams. 2011 has been one crazy year, the downs have been serious DOWNS but the ups have been some incredibly amazing ups and I hope they continue(and more frequently!!),

Ive been in a weird funk lately. I think a huge part of it is missing Matt so much. This is the longest we've gone without seeing each other and WOW. Seriously, the hardest thing I've ever done. I didn't think it was possible to really miss someone this much, but every new day proves me wrong. T-Minus 15 days until I see him. It can't come soon enough.

Anyways, blogger is being extremely stupid right now and not allowing me to upload any photos. Of course it would on a day when I have like 50 to upload! So you can just go see them all here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dominicarainforever/sets/72157626527038755/

I wrote out the longest post the other day and my sweet Mayson came up and hit one button on the keyboard and it was gone. Total headdesk moment!

Saturday, Angelyna, Ciarra & I walked a 3 mile marathon for March of Dimes for my one of my good friends Julia in memory of her daughter. It was a great feeling and the girls loved it too, and I'm glad that got to experience it! We had a blast, stopped for cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate along the way. Afterwards, I picked up Rylan & Stormie and we all headed to Julias for a BBQ and swimming. We spent the whole afternoon at the pool and it was so fun.





Sunday, we had a family BBQ. Everyone but my mom came over and we all hung out and drank some beers and BBQ'd. It was awesome to have that family time, its rare when all 5 of us siblings are together under the same roof and I am so glad we got too. I plan on moving within the next year far away from here, so I want to get in as much quality time in with them while I can because who knows when it'll ever happen again. Shayne ended up coming by to pick up the girls and stayed and hung out, which was pretty cool. So growing up, my mom never took pictures. Shes never even owned a camera. So we literally have like 0 pictures of our childhood, or of us kids together. So I was SO fucking stoked to get a shot with all 5 of us yesterday, it means so much to me. And the ones with my grandma. I'm going to frame them for her for Mothers Day :)

My adorable nephew Israel aka Izzy











So the other day I was transferring some pictures from my old computer to my laptop. I have literally thousands and thousands of pictures on my PC, 6 years worth and its been a serious pain in the ass going through all of them. Anyways, I came across a ton of SUPER old pictures. Its such a trip to look back. Thats what I love most about photography. Being able to look back years later and be able to be brought right back to that moment by looking at a picture.




Only 19! Seems so long ago









My birthday is only 14 days away :) Holllar. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to be 25 every year until....well ever. Good plan? Yes! I'm especially stoked this year because I get to celebrate in Vegas! I'm flying to Phoenix and then Matt & I are going to have our first road trip to Vegas for one of my best friends wedding! I have been looking forward to this trip for months now and its finally here. Yayyy :)
