Movie Thoughts: Life of Pi

We watched Life of Pi this weekend.

And I'm just going to say it...I was not a fan. It was sad. Really, really sad.
I read the book while we were on our honeymoon and looooved it. It was such an interesting read. I laid by the pool and read for hours.

For some reason though, the movie just didn't do it for me. I became much too preoccupied with the well-being of the animals, and I just couldn't seem to get past it and get into the story. Maybe it was that I could just skim over those uncomfortable moments in the book but couldn't glaze over them in the movie version? I don't know... It just wasn't the same.

spring break recap (in words)

So spring break is very nearly makes me so sad to write that! It has been a wonderfully relaxing week...full of art projects, neighborhood walks, house cleaning, second (and third) cups of coffee, life group hosting, home shopping, soccer playing, and baby snuggling. 

The weather has been perfect, y'all...perfect! We have entered one of my most favorite seasons of the year...maybe my most favorite since we typically don't have a true autumn season here in Texas. Even though this tends to be my busiest, most hectic season at work, there's just something about spring weather that is spirit lifting. Every window and door of my house is wide-stinking-open, and I am soaking it all in. Every last golden drop of it. 

Today I'm hoping to get some dirt under my fingernails and get our flower beds ready for spring. I'm craving the smell of mulch and fresh-cut grass. I'm also thinking today may require a fresh fruit salad and some barefoot patio sitting.
