i chose this today for a couple of reasons...
1) this soundtrack is one i can listen to over and over and over again....and quite honestly NEVER get sick of. it my opinion it is one of theeeee best soundtracks i have ever heard considering the music will take you right back to the movie every time you hear it...it is haunting in the way Eddie Vedder was able to capture the essence of this story.
2) on saturday evening, hanging out with some dear friends of ours, we started to discuss this movie and this book and what each of our takes were on it....needless to say it was an interesting and stimulating conversation. Which in my opinion is the best type of conversation to have.
i hope you all enjoy!!! and if you have not read the book or seen the movie...i recommend it!
sending love and happiness on this beautiful monday!
ps...if you are up for a challenge...go to the post prior to this one!!!! come on...aren't you the least bit curious!!??

in light of last night's oscars and my absolute fav hollywood hunk's win...i chose this song! please pause my playlist so you can enjoy the lyrics and this wonderfully haunting voice. i must say to anyone popping by to visit me...go see this movie if you haven't. Jeff Bridges truly deserved his win and his performance is simply effortless.
i hope you are all having a wonderful monday! sending loves!

first of all...i cannot begin to put into words how i feel about all of the love, prayers and encouragement that have rained down on me over the past few days. so... i will be simple and say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart...
It is the day to let go of anything that may be holding you back.
So if you have fear to try something new, just do it...today!
If you are afraid of what others may think of you and that is holding you back...don’t let it!
Life is precious and short....so go out and live it!!!
with all my love and gratitude...xxoo

normally i try not to get very opinionated or even too personal on my blog.
today is going to be different.
today i am sad.
today i am outraged with our judicial system.
today a monster will go in front of a judge for a horrifying crime, it seems he most likely committed.
today i don’t understand why such tragedies happen.
today i am hugging my children tighter and more than usual.
today i am grateful for all the moments i have with them.
today i won’t get annoyed with the messy bathroom sink full of toothpaste from my rushed teenager or the dirty clothes scattered about Soph and Syd's room or the fingerprints all over the fridg from Chandler.
today i will be thankful these messes...this proof they are around...are here.
today i am praying for Chelsea’s mom and dad, our family and friends.
today i am seeking out comfort.
thank you to each and every one of you for stopping by and visiting me and praying throughout the last several days. it is appreciated more than i can put into words. please continue to pray for comfort and ease for Chelsea’s parents and justice to be served.
i only hope this wakes people up and hopefully there will be change to how we handle sex offenders in this country. i hope this makes us all a bit more aware of our surroundings. i hope to someday find understanding in all of this...but know... that will not be today.

i am going back in the vault a bit for today's music inspiration.
this is one of my absolute favorite songs of all time. the lyrics are just so beautiful and raw and real. "so don't be afraid to let them show....your true colors" - this line inspired a sketch i did earlier today. i hope you all enjoy...don't forget to pause my playlist to hear this beautiful version of this amazing song...also
please continue your prayers for Chelsea King.
They have taken a registered sex offender into custody that may be linked to her disappearance but still have not found her. All of your prayers and positive thoughts are desperately needed. thank you all so VERY much for the support and prayers that you have already shown in my previous post! she is our cousin's niece and just a bright, beautiful, precious soul.
happy music inspired monday to you all! xxoo
