I’ve been listening to a lot of Ingrid Michaelson lately. There’s something about her voice and lyrics that are so soothing and soulful but still quirky and nonsensical at the same time; a perfect blend of light and darkness. One of my favorite songs of hers is “Wonderful Unknown.”
The lyrics go, “Into the dark and wonderful unknown, let us go, let us go,” which, to me, means that we don’t know what twists and turns our life will take–which can be extremely scary at times–but it will all be okay. Perhaps the excitement of not knowing what the future holds is what’s wonderful about the unknown.
Oh these milkmaid braids. If only you could’ve seen them in real life. I love that my hair is getting long enough to braid, but it still has a while to go until I can do milkmaid braids. I put so many bobbi pins in this sucker I felt like a pin cushion!
I must warn you: Don’t look too closely at my hands. They always get SO DRY and wrinkly in the winter; there’s nothing I can do about them! Do yours get dry too? My mom jokes and says they look like an elephant’s skin. I’ve accepted the fact I’m never going to be a hand model. Le sigh. BUT deliverance is near! Spring is nigh!
