And when I see you I really see you upside down...

You may want to listen to this song while you read the post=]

I have so many things to talk to you about...if you care to listen.  I am simply loving summer!  It is so gorgeous outside.  I am currently reading Peter Pan. I have been reading it outside under the shade of trees, and I absolutely love it!  The way that it is worded makes it so unique.  The Disney movie, although I love it so, does not compare to the brilliance of the book.  I highly recommend it to those who love to read!
Here are some simply inspiring things.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!  Oh, I didn't take any of the pictures just so you applause for whoever did because they are all great!

  This picture pretty much sums up all the reasons I want a brass telescope so badly!   (Rachel agrees=])

I love butterflies!  They are so beautiful and elegant....I could sit around all day just watching them fly.  I think I need to visit a butterfly house.
"All children, except one, grow up."

I love terrariums!  They are brilliant little jars filled with beautiful green plants.  I want to make one and keep it forever, because they of course do keep forever.  That is the magic about them.
One of the things that I long to have, when I grow and have my own cosy little cottage, is a greenhouse.  I think they are so quaint.  It will look a lot like the one in the picture, but it will be a lot smaller and it will be mine. 
This little book is so cute.  It inspires me so much.  That is exactly what I wish my journal looked like.

Some more fantastic things...
These videos are amazing: Lost Things and Blow Away by A Fine Frenzy.  The first one reminds me so much of the Amazon kindle commercials and the second one is really adorable.  Rachel and I found theses the other day and practically fell in love with them.  

Another video that is really cute is this one: In the Sun by She and Him.  Rachel and I love the little skip Zooey Deschanel does at the end of the video.  Oh, how I love Zooey Deschanel!  She is just so adorable.  If you like the song then you definitely should look up other She and Him stuff because it is all really good.   

Since we are on the subject of Zooey Deschanel, let us move on to another wonderful singer/song writer Ben Gibbard, her husband.  First off, I want to let you know that I am so unbelievably glad that Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard got married!  Now that is out of the way we can talk more about how brilliant Ben Gibbard is.  Not only does he sing well, but he also writes songs so well.  He is so clever with words.  If you are interested in listening to his stuff look up either Death Cab for Cutie or The Postal Service.  Those are his two bands...they sound very different in some ways and very much the same in other ways.  I'm not sure which one I like better....Oh! and also the song at the top of this post is a Death Cab for Cutie song.  

Well that is all I have to talk about right now.  I hope all is going well!  Thank you for all the wonderful comments you have given us, they are much appreciated!

Much love to all,


  1. I am so happy it's finally summertime!

  2. Ohhhhhhh I love Death Cab for Cutie and and The Postal Service!! And the song at the top of this post is like my favorite ever!! And love all your pictures.

    Thanks for the comment on my post. I wrote the little poem, but it was inspired by a song by THE WEEPIES.

  5. Summertime has finally come for you :-). It will be nice not to be at the mercy of the clock, if it is even for a brief period of time. Have a ball. I'm so glad you visited my blog today. I hope you will both return. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
