SKYE HATTEN PHOTOGRAPHY: {because sometimes…}

Because sometimes you just feel like you have to get out and take pictures.  And this was that afternoon.

Before you scroll through, though…a few things!

1.  We’ve celebrated three birthdays in our house these last couple of months.  BIG ones too!  We’ve celebrated “5” and we’ve celebrated “8” and I have to tell ya, these are both huge!  “5” is big for obvious reasons but “8” is a little daunting as the way I figure it, it’s halfway down the slide toward “10!”  AND this momma can’t quite rationalize a double-digit yet.

2.  Before I forget, this is a ‘must watch’…I giggled A LOT.

3.  Has anyone heard this song?  The lyrics start out like this…

I was a little girl
Alone in my little world
Who dreamed of a little home for me.
I played pretend between the trees,
And fed my houseguests bark and leaves,
And laughed in my pretty bed of green.

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest swing.
I had a dream.

Long walks in the dark
Through woods grown behind the park,
I asked God who I’m supposed to be.
The stars smiled down on me,
God answered in silent reverie.
I said a prayer and fell asleep.

I had a dream
That I could fly
From the highest tree.
I had a dream.

I couldn’t help it but that little knot in my throat swelled when I heard this and I found myself ugh, a big cryer.  And it’s the line “I asked God who I’m supposed to be” that STILL takes my breath away.

4.  I finally set up an instagram account…yes, crazy.  I am indeed living on the edge gripping with only fingernails.

5.  I DO have a pinterest account as well and it’s weak, so very weak.  I’m going to change that because I really think that pinterest and me could be the best of friends.  I’m going to definitely work on that relationship.  It’s meant to be.

6.  I’ve been on a reading kick lately and I love it.  I’ve read this, this, and this.  All good.  I think that I’m going to read this, even though I saw the movie already.  AND I’m definitely going to read this.  By the way, I joined a book club.  Yes, you heard that right.  Lift chin from floor.  It’s fun actually…I’ve met a heap of new people and I like that. 😉

7.  Speaking of the last meeting, my good friend, Ade, talked about THIS!  This is a documentary called “Nicky’s Family.”  You HAVE to read the description…there are no words.  Wow.

8.  Anyone watch American Idol?  I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was kind of rooting for Kree.  And you know, I’m going to be so very sad to not get to watch Nicki Minaj play with her hair any longer…bleh.

9.  Mr. Hatten and I have been trying to shed some lovely winter warmth we’ve been storing in preparation for some summer weather.  Yes, it’s working but can I just say that eating to lose weight is truly for the birds.  I’m not going to lie, I like to snack and I like to partake in this beverage occasionally, both of which have been stalled.  It’s worth it though…Mr. Hatten will be able to fit into this soon.  Kidding, Mr. Hatten…please don’t.

10.  Anyway, I’m off to a soccer game now so just wanted to pass along some well wishes for a great weekend!
