Fair warning: This blog might be a little lot disjointed.

1. What sounds happier to you?


the beginning of spring or the end of winter



I must admit that I like the sound of the end of winter better. It sounds like it's been long awaited, almost given up on – a hope realized.

2. All my hair is gone! Yep, I got a whopping 10 inches cut off!


It feels funny to run my fingers through it, but I'm loving it so far! I'm having a little trouble getting the ends to stay under rather than turning out, but I'm hoping to get the hang of that soon. It feels quite spring-y to me.

3. Have you seen Phoebe in Wonderland?


I watched it a couple of nights ago, and I highly recommend it. (It's an instant play option on Netflix.) Elle Fanning, Dakota's sister, plays the main character, a little girl who has Tourette syndrome. I was seriously amazed at what a brilliant little actress that girl is.


I have a soft spot in my heart for people with Tourette's because the summer before last I got to work with a little 14-year-old girl who had it. This movie did such a good job of showing what people with the syndrome have to go through.


4. Remember that time I embarrassedly admitted that I really liked Miley Cyrus's then-new song, "The Climb"? Well, I have another confession to make ... I might really like her new song.

And I might kind of want to see her new movie as a result. (I also might have thought that if I were Billy-Ray, I would have told my 17-year-old that she needed to wear more in the way of a top in her music video.)

What can I say, I just really like her voice!
