i love fall.
{revisit} the reasons {why}.
i just did and laughed at my bffls comments.
i can't believe how quickly time passes.
i took a drive.
as it is a favorite past time of mine.
driving & listening to good music
while taking in the beautiful colors of 
each year.
without fail.
i am always in awe of this season.
when the trees essentially die for a time.
the beauty and grace they portray
while being stripped bare is 
but let's be honest. 
some leaves are more beautiful than others.
more vibrant.
the more water they get,
the more nutrients they soak up,
the more colorful they will be.
until all their leaves are gone
and they continue just {being} for a season.
faithfully remaining until springtime
when they will be renewed
and brought back to life.
our lives go through seasons like that.
and we get through them because we have the
{living water}
soak it up.
it's what keeps us alive.
keeps us shining from the inside.
keeps us strong & beautiful.
like the trees.
i only hope i can weather the changes
brought my way
as gracefully as these.


.show me.

so this is audrey assad.
i got to work her merch table 
at a concert on friday night.
i'm not going to lie,
i'd never heard her music before.
she gave me her cd
and i played it as soon as i got in my car.
but i didn't get to the last song until today.
this song.
it brought me to tears.
it touched something in my heart.
it whispered feelings i know so well.
i want to be used by {Him}
i want to be known.
i want to live.
i want to love.
but i'm in a place.
a purposeful place.
a place of hardship.
of heartache.
of fears.
a learning place.
learning to trust.
i know i'm here for a reason.
it will be worth it.
so leave me here for right now
and while i'm here,
while i'm learning and growing,
stay with me.
guide me through the darkness
into light.
into life.
{show me}


.brand {new} melodies.

new music.
new artists. 
i love it.
last night i had the privilege of meeting these sweet people.
and hearing music that comes from two beautiful hearts.
this song describes the joy.
the pure joy.
of the day when jesus first came into your life.
don't forget to check out more of their music!
you won't regret it.


.please don't stop the music.

those who know me
know how much i love music.
it speaks to me.
when words fail,
there is music.
i speak in lyrics.
i journal in lyrics.
everything reminds me of a song.
the sister and i watched this movie.
it had been a while.
it gives me chills.
every. time.
this is by far one of my favorite scenes from
{august rush}

{i believe in music the way some people believe in fairytales}


.there is a purpose.

i am where i am {supposed} to be.
i have to tell myself this.
every. single. day.
for i know the plans i have for you, 
declares the LORD, 
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future.
{jeremiah 29:11}


i miss my boys.
i miss my friends.
so many memories.
i ran across something today.
{listened to it a LOT}
it made me laugh.
smile from ear to ear.
and i may have even teared up a little.
don't judge me.
i'm an emotional mess.
not really.
just sometimes.
like today.
so {here} it is.
check it out if you like good music. 
and mountains. 
and colorado.
i sure do.


.who says?.

an autumn weekend.
full of uncontrollable laughter.
giggles with the {bffl}
funny stories.
funny experiences.
{slooooow mooootiooooon}
singing really loud in the car.
and in the aisles of target.
i am not ashamed.
lots of starbucks.
and crafts.
finally checking off some ideas from pinterest.
and just for kicks...

thank you, best friend for a wonderful weekend.
for sharing life with me.
you. are. awesome.
i'm so glad you're my friend.
i wouldn't wanna be anybody else.


.{adventure} is out there.

so throw off the bowlines.
sail away from the safe harbor.
catch the trade winds in your sails.
{mark twain}
i crave it.
i want to travel.
see new places.
new things.
new people.
to explore.
i want to sit by the sea.
climb a mountain.
drive down empty roads.
paddle down a river.
i want to get lost for a while.
i want to keep that spirit of adventure alive.
the one you had when you were a child.
when you were wonderstruck by the world.
by creation.
by the sights, sounds, and smells.
i want to be caught up in the excitement of it all.
i want to be fearless.
i want to set sail on an adventure.
who's with me?

.{country} boy.

i recall a night.
a night of music.
of storytelling.
of laughter.
of tears.
andrew peterson is one of my faves.
he told us a story revolving around this song.
a conversation with his young daughter.
it went something like this.
skye {who was coloring} looked up and said:
"papa. what is this song?"
"this is a song written by one of the greatest songwriters of our time."
"what's is about, papa?"
andrew explains.
"that makes me sad."
{and goes back to coloring}
2 months until andrew peterson in nashville.
2 months until an evening of music.
and storytelling.
2 months.
