the magical feeling that I totally don't make you feel

It's been so long since I've blogged that I actually forgot what my blog looked like.  That's a little bit shameful.  In truth, I really don't have any clue as to why it's been like almost a week since I last posted.  I've just kinda been lacking words lately.  

You should probably re-read that last part, cause I NEVER run out of words.  Seriously.  Even now when I say I've run out of words, I haven't run out of words.  Look at me.  I'm still typing.  What am I doing?  I don't even know.  For some reason I just thought of a cow in a meadow chewing on grass.

Let's move on.  I think that would be best for all.

Even though I've said I've been at a loss for words, I haven't been at a loss for picture taking.

headband handmade by me, btw.
"Hey Mattie.  Wanna go on a mini photo shoot?"
Don't you wish you could live with me so I could ask YOU this question every day?
I'm sure you do.


We always walk down to this big lot thing that's about 2 1/2 miles from our house.  Our neighborhood is pretty scarce in terms of picture-taking places.


I was sorta going for a windy, magical feel for this shoot.  Which is probably a good thing since we've been getting some really high winds here.  Seriously.


Embrace messy hair.  This is what I have to tell myself so that I will have enough courage to walk out of my house.  Hey, sometimes messy hair looks good when you're going for a windy photo shoot.  And sometimes it's just one of these days.  Which is usually my case.  Which is okay.  Cause sometimes I like to have birds in my hair.


This is totally not what I had in mind to say when I took these photos.  I'm throwing off the mood you're supposed to be getting, aren't I?


And just to give off some more awkwardness:
Amelia tells me: "your headband sorta looks like Jesus' crown of thorns."
I say: "you think my headband looks like it's made of thorns?"
She goes: "well.  I guess it looks a little better than His crown of thorns."
My family is so encouraging when it comes to my handmade stuff.

Blogging at 1am is never a good idea.
