One of my favorite memories is when I was a Sophomore in high school and I made the top choir for the following Junior year--a pretty rare and awesome thing. I was so happy and proud of myself and my mom bought me a beautiful little music note charm just like this one to wear around my neck. It stayed on me for what I think was two years until I lost it. I was so very sad then and even now wish I had that. I didn't know how much that memory and the fact that my mom gave me this token of her love meant so much to me. I know how much she cares about me and she is always finding ways to show me how much she loves me.
Sorry for the overload of photos of random shiz I like . . . but I am WAY visual. I'm obsessed with seeing these things not just me rambling about them. I think that's why I was always the annoying little sister that just ended up drawing pictures in her brother's missionary letters as opposed to actually writing anything; and why I can't take notes in a class for the life of me. Which may have something to do with my GPA--hmm. That's something to think about.

Dear Dave Matthews Band,

I get that I'm WAY behind the curve, but no one ever explained the appeal to me. "Oh right . . . those sixty seconds sounded just like ten other bands I can think of off the cuff--woopdy freaking doo!" No no no. Musicality. MUSICALITY at its very finest and greatest. Who knew a popular contemporary band is full of actual musicians with musicianship? News to me. GREAT news. But news. I'm sorry I doubted you. I bleed Dave now. Thanks. :)


I needed this a LOT today

"For what it's worth, it's never too late, or in my case too early - to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit; stop whenever you want. You can change, or stay the same - there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."
*And you know what I love the most? I found this incredible photograph by google imaging "whimsy." My word of this week.

That Game I Sometimes Play

Sometimes I choose a great word or a meaningful phrase into Google Images and I just see what I get. I LOVE it--seriously, bored one night or have nothing to blog about, try this game. This one I Image Googled "sweetness of tomorrow" which I think is just a choice phrase. The ring is so dreamy and delicious with deep serious meaning and truth at the same time. These pics are what I found . . . I love the collaboration of random but wonderful things. Sublime. :)

Let's Try This Again

Remember when I used to get a lot of release and good times out of my blog? Remember THOSE days? I do! I do! I do! Well they're going to be back right . . . NOW! And we're starting with some good friends. My love for the Peanuts gang has been pretty big lately!
