Song: of the Day

I've been in love with this album lately.
This was the first track I heard from it- so good.

But now I've made my way through the rest of the album's offerings
and maybe it is the fall weather, but I can't stop listening to the track 'Old Pine'.
You can watch the video here.

I love these lines:

We slept like dogs down by the fire side
Awoke to the fog all around us
the boom of summertime around us

We stood
Steady as the stars in the woods
So happy-hearted
and the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning

I can almost smell the wood smoke
Makes me want to go camping

Happy Friday Everyone.




"Love anything and your heart will be
wrung and possibly broken. If you want
to make sure of keeping it intact you
must give it to no one, not even an
animal. Wrap it carefully round with
hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all
entanglements. Lock it up safe in the
casket or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless,
airless, it will change. It will not be
broken; it will become unbreakable,
impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is
to be vulnerable."

                                --C.S. Lewis


Around the World

I have a small obsession with maps.
Atlas, globes...love em.

There's nothing better than a map, well except maybe a treasure map.

I almost named my dog Atlas, or McNally.
But he seemed attached to the name he already had.
Maybe someday...

One day I want a 'map room' in my home. 
With pins marking all the places I have had the privilege to visit.


Fall Shows Premiere

I can't believe it is already October.

That seems CRAZY.

But that means all the fall shows are kicking off for the season.
I don't watch much TV but I try to catch Once Upon A Time on Sunday nights.
Sometimes its a little over the top but I love the intertwined fairy tales.
We'll see if they can keep it going for another season.

One thing I always love in Ginnifer Goodwin's pixie cut.
Here's hoping I get the guts to try this one day-
I want to try this so much, but when push comes to shove
I'm a big weenie and can't go through with it!

Do you have any must watch shows?
