life goes by too quickly :: true story

sometimes life is too fast. almost all the time, really. 
we're coming up on 3 years together. 
some days i can't believe it's only been 3 years because it feels like 
this is my life and it's the only way it could possibly ever be.
other times i am amazed that i've really only known this guy i'm married to for 3 years. 
weird. 

life is literally zip zip zipping away from me. 


i think about music a lot. music, is awesome. 
it can change my mood instantly. just two bars into a song and i'm a goner. 

so i wonder, "what's my life's song?" 
sometimes when it's quiet and i don't have music playing (which isn't often) i wonder about what song would be playing to represent my life in those moments.  or what i would have to sing about.

would it be a stellar worship song like one of all sons and daughters or would it be some gungy-janky (made that word up, clearly) song that leaves a no good message to those around me?

this makes me rethink my actions.
 am i weird? possibly
do i watch too many musicals? likely


the photos below are from a while ago. we take a lot of what we call "life" pictures and then i never use them. 
i mostly only use the ones that i've prepared for. 
but you know what's really fun? 
seeing a picture of yourself where you look absolutely terrible, and you can love it anyway. 

life with ethan is really cool. 
i was trying this morning to think of just one word to describe him. 
he has the best qualities. 
it's so hard to come up with just one word. 
he's all the things i'm not but desire to  be.

he's courageous and strong. 
he's righteous.
he's brave and confident. 
he's unchanging and capable of unconditional love. 
he's wonderfully bold. 
but mostly, i think, he's loyal.

oh my. me in the pink pants.
