Many years have passed since those summer days (day 31)

Although this was not my first choice of song to go along with this picture I think it fits. I love this song and it's haunting melody and for some reason, it spoke to me tonight. Fields of Gold by Sting.

That place where you can't remember And you can't forget (day 30)

WOW! 30 days, go me! lol. I know, I know this isn't the best song in all the world but it reminds me of my senior year in high school. (Yes, I'm aging my self here) But I think it's fitting for the photo. Title from the song Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen.

California dreamin' on such a winters day (day 29)

OK so I'm posting two photos tonight. They are both of the same area on the same night. San Diego, California two February's ago. I love it there! Jon goes there about 5-6 times a year for work and this trip I got to go with him. We were on the other side of the Coronado bridge looking at the city. We stayed in the city but went there to a really nice park to enjoy the 68 degree temps that day. Enjoy your day and listen to some good music while dreaming of warmer weather and flip flops.(I know I was just complaining about no snow 2 days ago, lol) California Dreamin' The Mamas and the  Papas.

you are my night sky (day 28)

We, we make believe in a world we rule together (day 27)

First of all, I want to say a hearty hello to my new followers! HOWDY!! ;) Glad you stopped by and decided to stay! You guys ROCK!
          So half of the east coast got pounded by snow last night, but in my little corner of Maryland, barely 1/4 of an inch. pfft, so much for my winter wonderland. So, to continue in my snow-less theme (I'm totally bummed by this man!) here is a beautiful pic, of no snow... Enjoy your snow, or lack there of, and go listen to some awesome music. Blog title from the song Trees by Mary Casey & Lovehammers. *as always click on link to hear the song and click on the photo to see it better*

I believe in the Kingdom Come... (day 25)

I was torn as to what the title should be for this blog. As you have realized by now I use song lyrics as the titles, and for this one there were two that worked well. The one I chose works because when you see something as amazing, and terrifying, as that water you know there is a much higher power than could ever be explained. But also, the line "I was cold as a stone" works because I froze my tukus off  when getting that photo. It was bloody cold! lol. Anyway, go listen to a great song I still haven't found what I'm looking for by U2 and enjoy all the beauty God has given to us.

...Is a smile on a dog. (day 15)

This is Tucker, my friend Deserae's dog. He is a complete love bug and I adore him as much as he adores me :) I was just taking random shots and he smiled for me. Haha! Gave us all a great laugh. Here's your 15 minutes Tucker-doo!  Title of blog is from: What I am by Edie Brickell

As time drifts away... I could stay here for ever (day 14)

As I'm listening to this song, I'm reminded of what pure love is... If you don't know this artist I encourage you to check him out. He has true talent and amazes me every time I hear him. Better Man by James Morrison. Two versions of the same photo. I loved them both so much I couldn't decide which to use. P.s. the pics become slightly distorted on here, so please click them to see the best view.

"I invite you to a world... (day11)

Where there is no such thing as time, and every creature lends themselves to change your state of mind." I highly recommend this band Shinedown. Also this song, from the new Alice in Wonderland film. "Her name is Alice".
  This was my favorite book as a kid and I completely wore out the animated Disney film. But I find Tim Burton's version even better actually. Maybe it's my total fascination with Johnny Depp. Or perhaps it's my love for all things dark and gothic.

In these pages darkness clears... (day 10)

Sixteen Moons, Sixteen Years 
Sixteen of your deepest fears 
Sixteen times you dreamed my tears 
Falling, Falling through the years 

Sixteen moons, sixteen years 
Sound of thunder in your ears 
Sixteen miles before she nears 
Sixteen seeks what sixteen fears 

Sixteen moons, sixteen years 
sixteen times you dreamed my fears 
Sixteen will try to Bind the spears 
Sixteen screams just one hears 

Sixteen moons, sixteen years 
The Claiming moon, the hour nears 
In these pages Darkness clears 
Powers bind what fire sears 

Sixteeth moon, Sixteenth year 
now has come the day you fear 
Claim or be Claimed 
Shed blood, Shed tear 
Moon or Sun- destroy, revere." 

Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness are the first two books in this 5 book series "The Caster Chronicles". Really excellent series if you like the supernatural Southern Gothic genre . Sixteen moons is sort of  the theme song of the first book

Meet me in St. Louis (day 9)

On a cold and windy day like today I thought I'd post a pic from a warm beautiful day in September. I took this with my cell phone while in St. Louis (One of my favorite cities). Meet me in St. Louis by Judy Garland

Buying bread from a man in Brussels (day1)

I was challenged by a friend of mine to start this blog. 365 days of photos. I have accepted her challenge (clearly) and decided my first post would be on the funnier side of things. I received this as a Christmas gift from an Australian friend. She gets my humor ;) Land down under by Men at work
