blue over you

i have had an extremely HAPPY thanksgiving.  From eating with the sweet and FUN nelson clan, to traveling to Tupelo to spend quality time with the Haadsmas, my holiday break could not have been any more priceless.  I saw dear friends Allie and Elena on Friday and was reminded of how special friendship is. I ate delicious food, played a few board games, and now I am getting ready to head back in the morning.

Even though traveling can be tiring, driving from here and there, packing and unpacking, there is nothing like being refreshed by those you love. 

Right now my mom is playing the piano, which she does only this time of the year. .  .which makes me cry.  I was thinking the other day how awesome music is and how it can completely change the mood.  So I decided to make a top five soundtrack of the songs that are so wonderful that you can't help to tear up. . .in a good way of course.  I will try and follow it up some time with songs that you cannot have a bad day to.  Perhaps for that blog post you should check out . :-) Hart is always sunny.

1. Judy Garland in "Meet Me in St. Louis" sings a rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" that makes me weep.
2. The Grand Pas from the Nutcracker, made even more beautiful by the prima ballerinas themselves.

3.  "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele. . .I remember Beef let me listen to her one night in the Go and I rediscovered her recently.  LOVE that type of passion.

4. "Landslide" Stevie Nicks. . .reflective and poignant / "Butteryfly Kisses" It's a TIE.  Granted, it is a little cheesy but you have to admit they are tear jerkers.

5. Mr. Harris singing anything, especially "The Circle Game." Still gets me even thinking about it. 

Anything I left out? much love-em

wow! who knew i could be so behind on my posts! the past few weekends have been amazing time spent with family and friends. i truly needed that relaxation and familiarity.  i have so many wonderful people in my life and i am just wow blessed by them.  each one of my friends and family members are unique and different which i love.  i feel like without all of y'all i am a little incomplete!

no words



honesty &  acceptance & understanding

laughter & encouragement

can't tell where i stop and they begin

gingerness and sass

never two kinder people in the world



hope (for a snow day)

always there
and these were just a few pictures. i had to stop because my sentiment was taking over & i was about to turn a happy moment into a tear fest! ah! so blessed and so grateful and i wish that i could wake up to a house ful of these people every morning!

While you're browsing the internet, listen to this song by one of my fall favorites, "Ingrid Michaelson."  I have listened to this song on repeat to and from the ballet studio for about 1 week straight! It's the harmony.  Can't get enough of that harmony!

"Giving Up" - Ingrid Michaelson
