  1. Ooh, how do you like All The Light We Cannot See? Olivia totally hooked me. Gah CHEESECAKE IS THE BEST.

    1. I'm hooked too! Its a great book!

  2. These pictures are absolutely GORGEOUS! I bet that your piano duet is amazing! I wish I could play an instrument...or sing (why did I have to be born with no musical talent...). I'm getting pretty bored with school as well. I seem to be learning the same stuff day after day. I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER ARGGH!

    1. Thanks, Emily!<3 Your sweet!:) Oh, I know, I love summer, too!

  3. I love the LOTR soundtrack <3 and that CS Lewis class sounds awesome! I read Mere Christianity a little while ago and Im so obsessed with it. lol. I mention it to everyone. I literally believe everyone should read it. haha.

    1. Isn't is just amazing! I haven't read Mere Christianity, but I'll probably get to it sometime! I love his books!<3

  4. Beautiful photos, I love "We'll meet again." My eyes fill up every time when I listen to it!
    Also, don't worry about the piano recital. I play piano also and get so nervous prior to playing to anyone. But you'll be fine, just try not to over think it!
    You have a new follower, I love your blog <3

    1. Thank you so much, Lauren!<3 Same here.....its such a beautiful and romantic song, and I just covet Vera Lynns voice! She's so good<3
      Thanks for the encouragement! You are so sweet, girl! And thank you for the follow!<3

  5. What beautiful photos! I especially love that last one. Did you take them Clara? Where are they taken at?
    I hope you do well at your recital. I have to play for the offering at church in a few weeks, and I am so nervous on the night I have to play. Last time I played, I messed up. I'm memorizing my song, and trying to memorize it so well I can play it with my eyes closed. ;)
    And mmmmm. Cheesecake sounds so good.

    1. Why, thank you, Ashley!<3
      Yes, I did take them:)
      Thank you for your encouraging comment! You are so sweet! I know you'll do amazing on your solo at church!<3

  7. Wow, the landscape in those photos is so pretty. Do you get to enjoy those views often?

    And you're reading All The Light We Cannot See! Are you liking it? I really enjoyed that book. :)

    Oh, I know what it's like to be stressed about music performances... But, I'm sure you'll be fine. :) And the piano duet sounds like fun!

    You have a wonderful week too. :)
