This heart of mine

I was tagged in: "Show Your Heart" by Morgan over at Caution: Redhead Running. As promised, here is my heart!




The tag reads: "with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a Disney princess.


Here goes...hope you all enjoy!


Picture

This photo was taken a few years ago. It's my boyfriend (often referred to as "the love of my life" here in this blog). This might be my favorite photo of us. I love him so!

Poem

It's all I have to bring today
by Emily Dickinson

It's all I have to bring today,

This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.
Be sure you count, should I forget, --
Someone the sum could tell, --
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.

Song

The Day Before You by Rascal Flatts

I had all but given up on finding
The one that I could fall into
On the day before you
I was ready to settle for
Less than love and not much more
There was no such thing as a dream come true
Oh, but that was all the day before you

Now you're here and everything's changing
Suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
And find out this promise is true
I will never have to go back to
The day before you

In your eyes I see forever
Makes me wish that my life never knew
The day before you

Oh, but Heaven knows those years without you
Were shaping my heart for the that day I found you
If you're the reason for all that I've been through
Then I'm thankful for the day before you

Now you're here and everything's changing
Suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
And find out this promise is true
I will never have to go back to
The day before you

Was the last day that I ever needed alone
And I'm never going back
No I'm never going back

Now you're here and everything's changing
Suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
And find out this promise is true
No I'm never going back
I will never have to go back to
The day before you

Phrase/Quote

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"
- Peter Maher, Olympian runner

Item of Clothing

I love my ASU sweatshirt. It's so comfortable. So soft. And it stands out in this town full of Longhorns! :)

Place

This is a road just outside of Austin called Lime Creek Road. It's not necessarily THIS particular place that I love, it's all places out of the ordinary when the love of my life is with me, and I have a camera in hand. I love exploring new places, and even familiar places with a new lens!

Disney Princess


For me, that’s easy. Snow White! Growing up, she was the only Princess with fair skin and dark hair like me! So I love her!
