today's randoms.

Hey there: you should enter Libby's giveaway. It's pretty amazing. :) this giveaway too!
Quote love: “My life is a series of changes. A series of hits and misses, ghosts and corpses. I’ve lost a lot and gained what I’ve taken. This time next year I won’t be this girl and more. I create my existence out of change.”

This was going to be a post about my love for Anne of Green Gables, (mainly Gilbert) and a few choice tidbits from my nine year old journal. That post will come, just...not yet, because: I've been working on it for two days. It's time to start fresh.

Well. I have homemade Oreos downstairs waiting to be filled. There is mint chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer. The choice is killing me.

Last night I packed up all my camera gear, blanket, warm clothes, water bottle, book, flashlight, ect. to go take a photo of star trails. Guess what? I went out there, and it was snowing. Tonight I'm trying again. I'm so excited. I love stars. I can handle an excuse to sit out there for an hour. :)

I'm falling in love with Madeleine L'Engle's books again. I'm working my way through the Young Unicorns. It's the last book in an everlasting series that I didn't even know was a series. She is, overall, such a poet. Her descriptions and her characters are real.

I'm currently loving Five For Fighting. They sing my theme song for the year (which I'll write more about closer to my birthday). The lyrics, his voice, beautiful.

I'll be back with a more coherent post tomorrow and hopefully a photo of some star trails!

Happy weekend!


  1. Hmm okay. Love the quote. Love mint ice cream. Love the idea of photo taking with stars above you. Awesome. Have a fabulous weekend!!!

  2. Okay, this post has definitely given me a lot to look forward to! Star trail photos, Gilbert Blythe(!!), your theme song for the year...Oh, the suspense! ;)

    ~Lauren :)

  3. Love that photo! And I'm totally looking forward to seeing your star trail photos. How annoying that it was snowing last night for ya (it was over here, too)! Like, why can't spring just come already??! ;)

  4. There should be a "LOVE" button. Because I LOVE this post! The suspense is killing me, though. Hurry and post Gilbert Blythe *Swoons, then stands up like nothing happened* and your stars :))

  5. I'm so relieved I'm not the only one who has to seriously consider dessert decisions. My mom bought me some mint chocolate chip ice cream a week or so ago. :) I love that because it's my favorite and I'm the only one in the house who eats it (so I never have to worry about opening the freezer only to find that my brother finished the ice cream off! :).

    I love star trails. I also love your new header! Looking foward to your upcoming posts. (I also loved your last post, though I forgot to comment. Today I felt very optimistic as I repeated to myself, "This is my best day ever." :)


  6. I have that exact same cover of Paris, only its one of those boxes that looks like a book! =D
    It's awesome. =)
    And Anne of Green Gables? LOVE it!! =D

  7. awesome. cant wait to see the star trails :D

  8. Madeleine L'Engle is my favorite author/poet ever, and I am also a lover of Five For Fighting. John Ondrasik has such a unique and haunting voice, I think.

    Taking photos of the stars...how dreamy! I hope you get to do that soon.

    Happy Saturday!

  9. I love Madeleine L'Engle books! I, too, haven't read those in forever. Classics they all are. Anywho, enjoy your homemade oreos! They sound so delish and hope you have a great weekend, too!

  10. Hopefully you'll get some pictures of the star trails! Btw your journal is so gorgeous!

  11. Is the song by Five for Fighting called "100 Years"? I love that song. I've dedicated a whole blog post to it.

  12. ohh my! oreos vs mint chocolate chip ice cream... i love em both! and i love your blog! i love the photo. thanks for sharing!

  13. Five for Fighting is awesome and those oreos sound so yummy!
