Love, Juliebug


Okay, so technically this isn't Wordless Wednesday if I am typing words. But, these words aren't actually about the photo so I say it doesn't count. And, really, what I say goes here. Right? Okay, so do you know how hard it is for me to seriously not write at least a caption about the photo? SOO hard. But, I will refrain. For today. Okay, I'm going now. 
Enjoy the photo and please leave me some love below.



Have you made any resolutions for 2017? I ask because I don't. I'd love to but honestly I don't want to be one of those people who makes them and breaks them. You know, "I resolve to lose 50 lbs and go to the gym five times a week." and then drop off the face of Planet Gym after a month.

But, is it really any better to be the person that is afraid of failing? I don't think so. I mean, at least "those people that break resolutions" are trying. They put themselves and their goals out there. Me? I just sit here crying to myself because things don't change magically on their own.

I've come to the realization that at some point, in order to change, you actually have to resolve to make those changes. My thoughts? Don't jump on the bandwagon or wait to change on January 1st. Start right away, whenever that happens to be.

Change is life.
This week's song is by a group I have loved for years. I won't say I've been a lifelong fan but it always seems I'm getting their songs stuck in my brain.



One of the reasons I like this song so much is that the words are so great. Here they are, just for you!

Can't count the years on one hand that we've been together
I need the other one to hold you
Make you feel, make you feel better
It's not a walk in the park to love each other
But when our fingers interlock, can't deny, can't deny, you're the worth it

'Cause after all this time
I'm still into you

I should be over all the butterflies but I'm into you, I'm into you
And even baby our worst nights
I'm into you, I'm into you
Let 'em wonder how we got this far,
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah, after all this time
I'm still into you

Recount the night that I first met your mother
And on the drive back to my house I told you that, I told you that I loved ya
You felt the weight of the world fall off the shoulder
And to your favorite song we sang along, to the start of forever

And after all this time
I'm still into you

I should be over all the butterflies but I'm into you, I'm into you
And even baby our worst nights
I'm into you, I'm into you
Let 'em wonder how we got this far,
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah after all this time
I'm still into you

Some things just, some things just make sense
And one of those is you and I
Some things just, some things just make sense
And even after all this time

I'm into you
Baby not a day goes by that I'm not into you

I should be over all the butterflies but I'm into you, I'm into you
And even baby our worst nights
I'm into you, I'm into you
Let 'em wonder how we got this far,
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah after all this time
I'm still into you
I'm still into you
I'm still into you

It reminds me of my relationship with my hubby. Cause even after all these years I'm still into him in a huge way. I love that everyone can connect to a song in a different way. We all have our own stories and music is this amazing soundtrack to our lives.
you are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously:

I struggle when things seem to contradict. Sometimes I need permission to feel they are both true. If this describes you as well then here is your permission. We are both God's masterpiece and works in progress. Someday we will be complete but not yet. 
Don't let your status determine your value.


Today I'm going to share thirteen movies I have loved. They may or may not be new releases. They also may or may not be kids movies. Hey, what can I say? I'm mom to an 8 year old!

1. Doctor Strange: I am not by any means into movies based on comic books but this was a great movie. Lots of action and it kept totally awake. Which, these days, is hard to do.

2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: I am, as you might know, a huge Potterhead. This movie was exciting. I loved stepping back into the wizard world. It had a lot of action as well. 

3. Into the Woods: Can I first say I had no idea this was a musical? What planet have I been living on? I loved the music in this movie. And, the premise was imaginative as well.

4. Bad Moms: I have a hard time putting this one on here because man does it have bad language in it. BUT I love the message and the actors in it. So, I am not going to tell you to run out and watch it but I like it.

5. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: I find I'm always drawn to quirky movies. Guess I'm a quirky person. The special kids and the time element kept me interested. There were a few freaky parts that were out of my element however.

6. Pete's Dragon: I don't normally love remakes and was fearing this one due to the fact that I adore the original musical version. However, I just thought this was so well done. It was emotional and hit all the right notes.

7. Now You See Me 2: I just had to love this one because I love the cast and also because I loved the first one so much. It's not the same and I do like the first one more but that's neither here nor there.

8. Clue: Yes, I've just finally watched this movie. I don't know how I've gone so long without watching it. I thought it was hilarious and reminded me of another favorite, "Noises Off".

9. Finding Dory: There was something sweet about this movie. As a mom, I watched it from the eyes of a mom. I think we all look at our kids and wonder how they will fair on their own. Seeing little Dory was precious and her voice was the same. Loved the underlying messages in this movie.

10. Hairspray Live: The live musicals that have graced our tv screens lately have gotten a lot of bad publicity. I have enjoyed them all for what they are....not movie remakes but live versions of musicals. As a former choir geek I am a huge fan of musicals as it is and this one was well done. 

11. Step Up: I don't know what took me so long to watch this. I typically love dance movies and I didn't even know who the main stars were initially. Seriously. I always wish I was born with the "dancing gene" but I suppose I should be happy with the things I've been gifted with.

12. Goosebumps: And to think I was worried this would be too scary for me. I loved the storyline being about R.L. Stine. It was a movie that both me and the kiddo liked.

13. Alice Through the Looking Glass: Johnny Depp. Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway. Enough said.
