it's when...

it's when mi casa es su casa...

it's when you have a little piece of paradise...

it's when you enjoy a little piece of magic...

it's when you can wake up with a cup 'o joe on a park bench...
it's when you have heart to hearts...
it's when you don't want to leave...
it's when your heart is full...

it's when it's easy like sunday morning...

{happy sunday}

{sea} green...


WOWZA!

you know you have done it...those silly little quizzes on FB...
and with some of the results you hit ignore and don't post....
we've all done it. but some....
they are a must post!

and here are the results...

People with green eyes have the most passion put into relationships, honest and trust worthy, they have long lasting relationships. People with green eyes are also the most beautiful, are fun, outgoing, love to make people laugh, and random as ever. They long for the touch of another. They are very laid back. People with green eyes are very VERY sexy and very attracted towards other people. L.O.V.E.S to have fun. They are always up for a challenge. As a fire ball this person will always have you guessing. Yet they draw you in with their
A.MA.ZING personality.
THE BEST KISSER YOU WILL EVER MEET.
You never want to let go of this person. They tend to cover up true feelings, get scared over relationships. Very curious. Tends to be a little jealous. Intelligent.




so true.
and well...they are like {sea} green.

free...

free
{zac brown band}

So we live in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you
We'll end up hand in hand
Somewhere down on the sand
Me and you
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Drive until the city lights
Dissolve into a country sky
Me and you
Lay underneath the Georgia moon
Do all the things that lovers do
Just me and you
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Ever be
----------------------------------
{breaks into: into the mystic}
van morrison
We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when this fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it
I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float into the mystic
Come on girl...
-----------------------------------------
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
No we don't have a lot of money
All we need is love
Free as we'll ever be
Just as free
Free as we'll ever be
Ever be
So we live in our old van
Travel all across this land
Me and you.


{hence what you are listening to}
live it. love it. play it. loud.
repeat.


...because we are all free to live. laugh. love...
