our endless numbered days

hi! things have calmed down a bit since last week. we have the week off from school out of respect for the students that passed and just for everyone to heal a little before going back into classes.

I have been using my time off to pack up everything. I'm almost done packing! I'm moving in next week! I'm excited!

so last friday I went to wheaton college to see iron & wine! it was just sam beam and his guitar. it was really special. I loved every minute of it! I was so happy, it was exactly what I needed to cheer me up a bit :]

I took a few pictures also, of course...philip allen opened, they were very good! he's a local musician, student at wheaton college

tears dry on their own

I spent saturday night downtown. I called Marissa friday night and I was sad so she wanted me to come down and cheer em up. so expectantly we went shopping! we went all around the water tower. it was fun and it DID cheer me up. I spent all my monies though...

here's all my new stuff:
this was actually a present from my mom. I can not wait to read it. 'there will be blood' is loosely based on this story.
I needed pink shoes :]
my new school bag
I love the little strap that holds the sides together
I found a vogue paris at a street vendor. I had been looking for it everywhere.
cute new cardigan with bows all over it. I LOVE this sweater ♥
I re-planted some thyme and mint this morning when I got home.

well, loves, I have to get back to packing. I am moving in a few more days!! its so exciting!!

this is

one of many reasons why I love iron & wine...

"Mother don't worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don't worry, I've got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me?
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying upward over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it, all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me, I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons could be birds, taken broken up to the mountain

Mother don't worry, I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother don't worry, she's got a garden we're planting together
Mother remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry?
Blood on the floor, fleas on their paws,
And you cried 'til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying always over the mountain"

I adore this magazine, lula. there is inspiration on every single page. I thought I would share a little bit of what inspires me:

isn't every single photograph gorgeous? I feel like there is a story behind every one. I love to look at lula and get ideas in my head.
