almost spring.

so i put my hands up!
oh nothing, nothing really. just getting excited because it's almost spring and i'm listening to brooke fraser and adele's 19 album (on vinyl) and coldplay (because i can) and watching pitch perfect over and over and over again and lifeguard training is actually fun and it's getting warmer outside (but not scorching, not yet) and i'm putting my trust in the Lord and i'm just feeling really good about things (including this massive run-on sentence), so. cheers to us, cheers to you.

-kiss kiss kiss, so i put my hands up-
{pea ess: any songs you've been loving recently? i'm looking to make a mixtape and i'm open to suggestions!}
{pea pea ess: a dear friend of mine and her best friend got married sunday! i am SO proud of them. do show some love.}


  1. run on sentences are the best, so is spring, so are those pictures, and so are your hands.

  2. check out "devil in the woods" marah in the mainsail! :)

    and your photos are drop dead gorgeous. :)

  3. ahhhh, you're reading r&j. #THINGSTHATAREVERYMUCHOKAY <3

  4. So glad things are going well for you at the moment. I'm kind of the complete opposite right now... but life is still slowly moving along, and I guess I am with it. I keep looking ahead, knowing that better days will come, but it seems like such a faraway place. Mainly I'm just looking forward to this month being over, but also really really really looking forward to spring/summer, and looking forward to life. It's not exactly where I want it to be right now, and it's seemingly impossible to change it at the moment, but I have high hopes for the future. x <3

  5. You make me smile, Jocee. :) I love people who can be completely random and perfectly lovely at the same time. I also love people who not capitalize everything, and use run-on sentences and be okay with it.

  6. Oh goodness, Romeo and Juliet...and listening to Brooke Fraser and Adele?
    My dear Jocee, you have extremely good taste.

    (and I'm so glad the lifegard training went well.)

    You are - Colton Dixon

  8. Pretty pictures, love! I'm glad you're doing well with lifeguard training! I knew you could do it :) 2 songs come to mind immediately, both by Mumford and Sons because my sister just bought the Babel CD and it's amazing; Below my Feet and Whispers in the Dark. Gah, shivers.

  9. i love this, and you, and your pictures--they just seem to be getting better and better with each post. xx

  10. It's not exactly new but.. The A Team(birdy version!). AND you know my others.. ;)

  11. i am so ready for spring. my camera is begging me to take pictures of something besides leaves and gray skies.

    songs? that's easy :)
    "Hearts Safe" by tenth avenue north.
    "Love Will Be Enough For Us" by brandon heath.

  12. Joc,

    for the mixtape, you can use my picture of my vintage Coke bottle if you want. :)

    For songs recently... ummm... I'm loving: 'Back on the Ground' by Scotty McCreery, 'Breakdown' by Lauren Alaina, 'Someone to Watch Over Me' by Jean Louisa Kelly, and 'Out of Summertime' by Scotty, again. :)



  13. I loved the picture of the sandwich! capitol y-u-m-m-y! My favorite songs for summer are both by Best Coast and you may not like their style and I didn't at first but I've somehow grown to love them the songs are, The Only Place and Summer Mood. I've also been listening to really random music, like One Day by Sharon van Etten, which is great!! I was just wondering, what are your favorite movies?

  14. 19? i love that cd!!! it's so awesome! and pitch perfect is amazing. fat amy- i mean fat patricia [ :) ] is my fav character!

    music... i love c'mon c'mon and little things by 1D. then treacherous by taylor swift is a great song, too. can't wait for the mixtape!

    xoxo (mainly kisses, but no one can have too many hugs! =]) || <a href="http://vanillastudies.blogspot.com/>meena</a>

  15. Romeo and Juliet -- yaay! I loved it; but it's really bittersweet and heart-breaking at the end. ;) lovvveeely photos, dearheart.

  16. Very nice post. :-)

    Just one suggestion: Maybe you should say that you were inspired to take that last photo because of Simi's {from 'in search of beautiful'} post? It really looks like you were trying to copy her.

    1. no, i wasn't trying to "copy" simi. i've just always wanted to do a "hands over my head" photo. and anyway, a lot of photographers do it, so i don't think it's meant to be "copying each other," just a fun pose. :)

  17. gah. THAT LAST PHOTO. asdfghjkl! As for music I've been loving Amanda Falk. (I can only find her music on grooveshark though... she isn't that popular, but her voice is ahh-mazing, and all her songs are so whimsical and pretty. And JJ Heller. Also these:
    Gold - Owl City (Brit Nicole's Gold is awesome too!)
    Something in the Water - Brook Fraser
    The Struggle - Tenth Avenue North
    Hide Your Love Away -Anthem Lights
    C.S. Lewis Song - Brook Fraser
    (okay, I'll shut up now.)

  18. Your ability to take photos astounds me.
    I love it.

    Songs you should listen to:
    "Live and Die" - The Avett Brothers
    The whole Passion 2013 CD
    "Sixteen Saltines" - Jack White

  19. Ahh I'm so glad things are looking up for you! :)
    I'm loving Birdy's songs right now :)
    Kimmy x

  20. I'm really love workday release :) I love simple acoustic tunes.

  21. Okay, I want some toast right now. #carbs4life

    Lately I've been listening to Palma Violets (going to see them in one week!) Little Comets (going to see them in three weeks!) and Beach House (I wish I was going to see them live, but alas not. I'll just stick to listening in my room & crying)

  22. Your run on sentence is divine :)

  23. i love this... its so great. it's like getting into your thoughts :)

  24. I am soooo excited for Spring! Great post.
