take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life... you were only waiting... for this moment to arise.

Blackbird fly...

Whenever I wear my bird necklace, I cannot get songs like "blackbird" and "free bird" out of my head! I have a really big affection towards birds and have often considered getting a tattoo of one. I really like their connection to freedom and spreading wings. 

I also really like trees and dream of getting a tree tattoo as well. It would be so neat to have one crawling up your ankle or the side of your back. I'm not sure if I will ever get another tattoo but it's always fun to dream! 

How was your Tuesday? I'm so glad the sun popped out for my drive home today. It sure was a nice break from the steady downpour of rain we've been having!! 

xo, allie

  6. agreed Allie and i think your tattoo idea is splendid! way to make it a lasting impression for sure. i love those photos; you look beautiful and the light saturations, very rad effect! your lamp is ultra cool too, i bet it casts interesting shadows.

    pea ess: thanks for your wonderful comment doll, made my day! thanks for clarifying the sweater sitch, it's such a good idea and i will be incorporating it immedz!!!

    also, the look-a-like (in my opinion) is my gf Chessa and you can see a couple pics of her here but the lighting that night was poor so forgive the quality. she's the one in the 5th pic of the collage where there's a poinsettia and she's wearing the scarf. what do you think? yes or noooo? ♥

  7. Wow, I love that wicker-like piece you have in your room, there! And very cute style :) You have a new follower!


  8. Love your bird necklace! Actually, I think I was a bird in a prior life, there's just something about me and flying, and freedom!

    Love the bird tattoo idea!
