I’m Going on an Adventure!

On Tuesday, (April 7) my family shall embark on a 3 month road trip around the states. despite my reluctance to go, I’m excited about it! It will be an adventure. I’m bringing along my camera, and so I might stop by and post some pictures every once in a while. I’m also bringing loads of books and my sketchbook and notebooks and music, so I think I’m covered. I’ll try to stop by and post more than I have been…


This will be my family’s fourth PD trip, as they’re called, and even though the experience has kind of lost its luster, I’m very interested to see what new things I’ll encounter.

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

P.S. Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. (Also apologies if this post was boring.) Though I can’t make any promises, I’ll try to stop by to write posts more while we’re abroad. If there’s anything you’d like to see me post about in the future, comment with your ideas and requests!

The Last Goodbye

The credits song for ‘The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies’ is now out!

Who is excited for the next and final Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies???!!!!! I definitely am. In fact, I have been waiting all year for it! (As have many people)

I was extremely excited when the Teaser Trailer and finally, the Official Trailer came out! But I am the most excited for this amazingly fantastic song! ‘The Last Goodbye’ is so beautifully written! (written by Billy Boyd in fact. He’s the actor of Pippin in the Lord of the Rings) When I heard just the title of ‘The Last Goodbye’ I knew it was going to be super sad, and now that I’ve heard it, it definitely is.

I think that ‘The Last Goodbye’ is not only saying goodbye to the Hobbit movies, but to all the Lord of the Rings movies as well.

This music video is wonderfully put together, and the words to this song are full of feeling. Also, Billy Boyd is a brilliant singer, so sit back and enjoy as you watch and listen, possibly several times. I personally cannot stop watching this video. I think I’ve watched it at least once a day since I first saw it.

Hobbit Day!

“In a hole in the ground, there lived… A Hobbit.”

Today, September 22, is Hobbit Day!

Not only is it Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday, but September 21st, yesterday, marked the 77th anniversary of the day the Hobbit was first published in 1937!

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoards of gold, it would be a merrier world.” ~J. R. R. Tolkien

Have you eaten enough meals today? Breakfast? Second Breakfast? Elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon Tea? Dinner? Supper? Midnight Snack? Hobbits are very well fed.

And Hobbits, although they live very structured lives, relaxing at home, are full of potential!

“It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.” ~J. R. R. Tolkien

We can learn a lot of things from Hobbits. If you haven’t read it, you absolutely should, and if you have, you should read it again! I currently am and I’m enjoying it immensely.

So there you go, and HAPPY HOBBIT DAY EVERYONE!!!!
