Just stuff that makes me happy

I'm feeling super grateful to be alive today. Here are a few of the things that I'm super grateful for:

Justin was in The Secret Garden, which is one of my FAVORITE musicals. He did an awesome job, and of course, I cried.

I would have loved to record HIS play, but I didn't... So here's my favorite song from the musical.

The lyrics of this whole song speak to me. For a long time it was, "What you have to do is finish what you have begun. I don't know just how, but it's not over 'til you've won," but lately it's been, "When you see a man who's raging, and he's jealous. He fears you've walked through walls he's hid behind for years. What you do then is you tell yourself to wait it out, you say "Its this day, not me, thats bound to go away"

I bought myself some new waders. (The ones I bought two years ago have holes. I spent a bit more money on the new ones.) Summer's coming. The weather is gorgeous. The fish and the mountains and the streams are ALL calling my name.

It's spring!!! There are a ton of trails that I haven't been on yet. Life is just better when I can get out riding.

And this song too:

(I love the video of this girl with her horse, but I was really just looking for the song in a format I could share with all ya'll.)
These lyrics are my favorite:
"And away she rides
To the great beyond
You can wave goodbye
To a girl and her horse with a bond
You can't deny"

Oh yeah, and a new hat. And yes, in case you were wondering, sometimes I wear the hat around the house while I'm still in my pajamas, because I like it that much.


  1. Yay! I love it when I make the list of things that make you happy! ^_^ You should wear the hat around my house more often! :p

    1. Ok. I'll wear the hat to your house. Just for you.

  2. I do that too! I'll wear my favorite hat around the house even in my jammies. Who is you're photographer? Great picture of you on the horse.

    1. BJ took all of these pictures. He did a pretty great job, huh?

  3. Some of the things that make me happy are seeing you happy, seeing Justin in the Secret Garden (and other plays) and playing in my flowers (among other things). Love the pictures!
