The hills fill my ♥ with the sound of music.

Best Valentine's Day ever! This view really took my breath away. It was in the beautiful hills of Pasadena. I know I'm the queen of saying something reminds me of one of my favorite things even though it's mostly in my head...BUT...how much does it look like I should be singing, "When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything"? I speak of "The Sound of Music", of course. :) Well, ok, you got me...it really doesn't look like I should be frolicking with Fräulein Maria...but I know that thinking such things brings immense joy to my life. Who cares if they really aren't true? I truly believe that the more we can think like children, the better! I know it makes my life the happiest it could be. Oh, and you can bet your boots I had to google the spelling of "Fräulein"!

Other than that, I had a cocktail last night with egg whites in it. Gabe told me that's how they did things in the 20's so I tried it so I could pretend I was a part of the roaring 20's but I couldn't stop thinking of a fried egg that wasn't cooked all the way while I was drinking it and it really creeped me out. We did end up having pizza, but it was out at a fun restaurant instead of on our couch. Good decision!

Anyway, comfiest outfit ever. I would even wear this on a sick day. :)

I also can't believe how gorgeous these chocolate bars are that Gabe gave me. Gorgeous AND delicious! PASTELS!




Oh, we have a winner of the Decades Collide contest. Congrats to It's not her, it's me! You were randomly chosen so you should do a lot of things today that rely on luck (lottery, The Price Is Right filming...etc), you just may be very lucky today! Please email me your info! Also, please teleport me one of the teddy bear bags that you made. THX! :)

Alright guys, love you to bits and hope you had a superb Valentine's Day. Also, I hope you still had fun even if you didn't have a Valentine. You at least enjoyed the ubiquitous red, pink, and hearts, right? I know I always used to tell myself that it's better not to be taken by someone who is so-so because then you won't be available when the real mate to your soul comes along (it was true for me so I think it is for you too!).

  6. i agree about thinking like children, i don't like that most of us lose that childlike wonder.. i wish that people would break into a song and dance sometimes. you know, like at the grocery store or walking down the street... :)oh wow, egg whites in a cocktail? i've never heard of that!

    love the photos and yes that hill does seem fitting for a song!

  13. The sound of music used to be one of my favorites when I was little. Tehe. But I was silly and had no idea it was about such bad sad things. I just liked the singing :)

  14. we were given a book of very old cocktail recipes from a friend for christmas, and many include egg whites. i don't know how you were able to drink it, i certainly couldn't! it makes me gag thinking about it, haha. those chocolate bars are gorgeous though - i actually thought it was a little set of books when i first looked at the picture.

  17. These pictures are great, and I love that dress. The gradual tie dye effect is beautiful. And The Sound of Music was the perfect soundtrack for these photos!

    Random Note: I studied abroad this summer in Salzburg, Austria and stayed at the palace where they filmed The Sound of Music! Best experience of my life.
