I would totally believe that little birds did her hair...

I live with freaking princesses.

Sniff, that smoke!?

Dear Void,

If I happen to die in my bed tonight due to smoke inhalation or some poison gas, please know that I have been all over this house and have determined that it's not coming from us.

It's a chilly night, and cold, damp air outside is heavy with a bad smokey, marijuana smell.

Paranoid sleep is the only option.

Love me,

Shots of the day

Me....and my shadow.

I love how Amara says she'll sing me a "Merm-laid song". I love how she squeals, "Keesten's hew!" in the morning. I love having a mini me!

See Jane Swoon...

It's late, and can't sleep. Bonus for you--here's a silly post in a response to a funny guy I recently met, who claimed that all girls swoon over horses.

I laughed at the time, because all 5 of the girls present shook their heads, and claimed it wasn't true.

The following is a list of things that make my heart go pitter-pat. You'll note that, although I find prancing ponies quite nice at times, they are completely absent from this list.

Basically, anywhere that has sky meeting sea, meeting mountains....My heart leaps!

Cascade Mountains, WA
Kole Kole Pass, HI
Kolob Canyon, UT

I positively glow, at the sight of a new National Geographic. I know just how it will sound as I flip through the pages, and just how all those full spread photos will smell. My pulse quickens--adrenaline rush! It's bliss!

IZZE------------'Nuff said

First snows of the year...Powerful emotion.

You might be thinking to yourself, yes, but these are things that almost everyone enjoys.
Now, lest you think I'm not letting any silliness reveal itself in the reality that is a good girly swoon--allow me to introduce the next thing that makes my eyelashes flutter...

A well designed cake plate. I don't know why. I just LOVE them. Passionate love! Yes, unafraid of rebuke or chastisement---I find them to be most swoon worthy.

Someday, I hope to prove my theory that walking though celestial realms is probably something akin to wading through stacks of silk, and walking on soft squishy green moss.

All of these artists create works that could make me faint dead away.

Brian Kershisnik

Albrecht Durer
Nick Bantock
and of course....P.J. LYNCH!!!!!


Sagebrush before/after a thunderstorm. That is the smell of LIFE!

Cedar...Comforting, spicy, and mesmerizing. I wish my room smelled like this.

BOOKS! Old books and manuscripts. 20 swooning points awarded to you if you can guess what this is from... No cheating. And an EXTRA 20 bonus swooning points if you can read it aloud in the original Old English.
Okay, let's just be honest.... Boy smell. Mmmmmmmm!

Walt Whitman.

A good dance class...My mind goes to another place. Also, somehow my body only feels beautiful when it's moving. Tired muscles, and concentrated limbs, and my heart and head still following the rhythm long after the music is gone... absolutely swoon worthy.

Actually, Singing at the top of my lungs. The act of creating through dance, paint, clay, paper, or camera...that...THAT! makes me dizzy with felicity.

There isn't enough room on the internet for how much music plays a part of my swoony-ness.

What's on your swoon list?
