just because everything's changing.

Listening to: The Call by Regina Spektor. (title credit.) 
Quote love: "It isn't Narnia, you know," sobbed Lucy. "It's you. We shan't meet you there. And how can we live, never meeting you?"
"But you shall meet me, dear one," said Aslan.
"Are -are you there too, Sir?" said Edmund.
"I am," said Aslan. "But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there." C.S. Lewis (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) 

After tons of hype, years of waiting, and frantic reading in the theater during the previews, I saw the Dawn Treader. I kinda loved it. They radically changed it from the book (which, I managed to finish before the movie began) but in a good way. I missed Peter being there, but it was good to see Edmund step out a little. Susan...well, she was never my favorite character. Lucy and Edmund were always my favorites, and I loved a movie where they were the main Pevensies. Eustace was fantastic. I can't wait till he comes back in the Silver Chair. What did you think about it?

Today was amazing because:
1) I used my favorite mug. A Christmas present, my photos on it, with the quote "Every leaf speaks bliss to me."
2) I wore my new Beatles shirt. It's long enough that I can wear it over my jeggings, which are the most comfortable legwear invented, not including sweatpants.
3) It's snowing outside, and I'm inside.
4) We took a roadtrip to Ohio just to visit Ikea, and had an epic game of hide and go seek throughout the store.

Question: what happened to all the comments? I miss hearing your thoughts!


  1. I loooved the movie. It was definitely my favorite out of the 3! The part where Aslan says that (in your quote up there), was my absolute favorite. It gave me chills!
    And I agree: I also missed Peter, and Susan certainly isn't my favorite either!
    Overall though, the movie was wonderful, I thought!

    -Lauren :)

  2. this is like one of my favorite quotes from the movie/book toooooo!!! :D :D :D
    and i'm glad to FINALLY find someone who loved Eustace. he was my favorite character.. haha :)

  3. I absolutey love The Call. After hearing it on the credits for Prince Caspian, its been a fav. :))
    I loved Dawn Treader, too!
    Lucy and Edmund playing the leads was awesome, compared to the last two.
    And, I just love your blog, Katie. :)


  4. Hi, I just wanted to say I like your blog! You have great photos and I love the little quotes at the beginning of each post. ^_^

    I saw the Dawn Treader over winter break with my cousins and I liked it, too.

    Awesome Beatles shirt! :D


  5. oh the call. perhaps the greatest song ever...don't you love it when you find a movie that you adore? it's a great feeling, right up there with finishing a book series and the first warm day of the year.

  6. I loved "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," though I had some issues with it (which I wrote about on my blog). There were a few things that really bugged me right after I saw it, but now I've calmed down a little. :) I really want to see it again...I hear it's better the second time around. :)


  7. The movie was good, it just didn't move me the way Prince Caspian did. The Call is my all time fave song! Your Beatles shirt rules.


  8. I love the quote and the song!!! I was so happy when Aslan said that! :D I absolutely loved Dawn Treader! Also I believe that Eustace did an amazing acting job. I found out that if they don't make the money that they are needing to with this movie they won't make another!!! So I watched it twice. :P I don't if this has happened to you but people keep telling me that they didn't like it? :(

  9. Hey, that's a great idea! I am so suggesting that to my friends, going to Ikea and playing hide and seek. Wow, haven't been there since I was reallyyy little...

  10. I saw it the day it came out.
    The same with LTWATW and Prince Caspian.
    I come from a family of Narnia fanatics.
    I miss Peter too! I can't even say that without my family joking because I had a tiny celeb crush on him when I was 11. ELEVEN!!!! 5 WHOLE years ago.

    I love your fashion taste. The red tee with the black belt is awesome.

    What kind of camera is that?
    I suggest you put that on your photoblog is you haven't.

    I have a photoblog too, but I need to start updating it more.

  11. Lauren- I really loved it too :) I think Caspian was my favorite, but this one was fantastic.

    Jenna- yeah it's great. ohmygosh I know! he was sooo funny. Edmund has always been my favorite though :)

    Jana- I've loved it since Caspian too :) awwww I love YOU.

    Starr- aww thank you :) I'm glad you liked it :) thank you!

    LF- yes! and I loved what you just wrote :)

    Kristin- I get what you mean. I want to see it again with some of my friends, just because we can. :)

    PB&J- yepp, Caspian will always be my favorite! thank you :)

    Bookworm- oh no! that would be SO sad if they didn't make another. yeah, I keep hearing people didn't like it as much as the others.

    Emii- haha thanks. it was tons of fun.

    Jillian- my family are Narnia fanatics too, but things just got crazy, so I haven't seen any of them on opening day. haha a few of my best friends have celeb crushes on him.

    awww thank you!
