There we have it. A little update on my fascinating life. I've hoped you enjoyed your Saturday as much as I have! (no really, my afternoon has been fine.)
Please, please, please stop by Youtopia Blog Designs for a visit. It would make me very happy, you know. So far trying to re-boot my blog design business has been rather pathetic, to say the least.
Friends, I will see you next month.

there and back again // a guest post by abbie

i really hope you guys like lord of the rings. because you're about to be bombarded by LOTR epicness.

to tell the truth, i haven't been a lord of the rings fan for very long. when my parents and older brother watched it in january, my original plan was to go upstairs and watch bug's life alone. but i saw the first minutes of LOTR and knew that i couldn't leave. since then i have been completely hooked on it.

at the beginning of the summer, i bought the LOTR soundtrack. (like, all of it.) and it is honestly some of my favorite music ever. it makes me cry, laugh, smile, and hurt. it's the perfect music for when i'm tired at night, or early in the morning, or when i'm working on something. it gives me messages of hope, victory, pain that will eventually pass. i think that Tolkien wrote one of the greatest fantasy stories ever. lord of the rings has changed my life in a big way. and if any of you feel the same way - well, that's pretty awesome.

and yes, i have read the books. twice.

(thankyou, shadowflower, for asking me to guest post! guys, i've actually met her more than once. we were in the same cabin at camp this year, and she's seriously, really awesome.)

i'm abbie. i'm an artist - photography, music, film, painting,
and just plain creating. i love switchfoot, pixar, and lord of the rings.
most of all, i love jesus.
i write at awakened.
