dark eyes

I would suggest listening to this song: Dark Eyes, by Iron and Wine & Calexico, covered for the I'm Not There soundtrack. I believe it's my favorite on that album!


We were snowed in this week, and I enjoyed it. Now all the trees are lined with ice and it glistens in the sun and when backlit by gaslight streetlamps.


The garland was one my mother wore on her wedding day in St. Thomas, saved for me although missing lots of its dried flowers and adding some ribbons instead. My hair may look short here but it's actually shoulder length! Just Heidi braided. I won't go back to short for years, I miss being able to do amazing braided hair styles =/ I'm on my way.

    still loving your style... I've stopped with looking for time zero for a while... it was getting to be a little expensive plus there was one package that didn't get to me... =(

    I'll be content with looking at yours... =)

    I won't go back to short hair for quite some time now. I too miss to do lots of things with it :) and you look beautiful with that hairdo.

    That album is great and that is a very nice song indeed.

    My other favorite is "You Ain't Goin Nowhere" by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová...their voices harmonize so well!

    Thank you, everyone! If you have snow where you are, I hope you enjoyed playing in it too.

    Beautiful photograph. I'm jealous that you got out and took pictures. I'm really ashamed that I didn't take out my Diana. I spent those 2.5 days working straight through.

    I agree about Dark Eyes being one of the better songs from that album—it basically solidified me as a fan of Iron & Wine—but I'm also very partial to Wicked Messenger and Goin' to Acapulco.

    Brian took this! It was fun, though, but we got cold fast. He doesn't even have snow boots! My gloves became soaked....I didn't really do much homework during the snowdays, too much fun to be had and too much hot chocolate to make! And then I whipped cream myself. Senioritis???
