I'M STILL AWAKE --- ( ƅ°ਉ°)ƅ

Hellooo late-nighting-owls, YOU. Before I go to bed I wanted to put together this thought provoking, intense, life-changing GIF of me and my boyfrenn, Juuuuuuuustiiiiin Criiiiiiitz (the way I say his name in public sometimes for embarassment.) It's been January 28th for about 41 minutes now which marks our (yep) 42 months of being together (yes, monthies) and I cannot describe how much of a blessing this guy has been in my life for the past (yussss) 42 months. From adventuring to appreciating everything art and music related to creating art and music to being weird to helping with his photography to disney-ing and everything before, after and in between, I have found so much joy and happiness being at his side and with him at mine. 3 1/2 years, of course has had just as many downs as ups, but by God's grace, we've made it through all of that. A lot of times after we play a show, people will come up to us with compliments on our performance but also at how well we both work together and how we complement each other in music as well as our respective fields (photography & graphic design). No matter how many times I hear it, I don't think I've fully thought about just how amazing that is---to be given someone in your life not only to complement your similarities and differences, but to give you joy and appreciation towards a fellow creation of God and to share an experience and a journey together set by Him. All this to say, I'm just really #hashtaghashtagblessed and lucky to have Justin in my life. :)

LATE NIGHT RAMBLE slash APPRECIATION slash BLESSED: Check. 

Sooo I know I mentioned in my last post that I would update you on the millions of things that have happened in LIFE, as well as post my long overdue photos...buuuut I'm not ready yet! Also, my laptop has been painstakingly slow these past months and it's just so tedious to get anything done on it...so in lieu of showing my creativeness in photos, I will distract you with an awesome cover that Justin made of my favorite Broods song, "Mothers and Fathers." The song is GOOD, Broods is GOOD and his cover is GOOOOD. And I love it because it's a song about growing up, being an adult and how sometimes (honestly, a lot of times) it can be preeeetty hard and confusing. Take a gander with your ears and leave the lovely some love! :)
 

Mother and Father | Broods | Cover by Justin Critz

 

LYRICS:

The nights are getting shorter
I don’t know where to go
I am getting older
And it's starting to show
And ever since I left my mother
It’s much harder to know
How to make my own life here
How to make my own home

I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
Forget what I had in mind

I remember a time when a kiss on the hand was enough
Cause we knew we were free
And we knew what it meant to be loved
But ever since I left my father
It’s much harder to know
How to make my own life here
When all I need is home

I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
Forget what I had in mind

As faces start to fade
They’re slipping through my hands
It's where my heart was made
And where my feet will always land

I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
I don’t wanna wake up lonely
I don’t wanna just be fine
I don't wanna keep on hoping
Forget what I had in mind
Forget what I had in mind
