Lovely Sundresses

I don't love this song, this band, or this music video (I'm not really a pop country kind of girl) but I loooove the flowered dress she wears in this video. I think I'd like to find one similar to that or make one myself.

Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy

"The world turns and the world spins, the tide runs in and the tide runs out, and there is nothing in the world more beautiful and wonderful in all its evolved forms than two souls who look at each other straight on. And there is nothing more woeful and soul-saddening than when they are parted."
(Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy, Gary Schmidt)

I'm pretty sure the last chapter of this book is one of the most brilliant and eloquent pieces of writing I've read in quite awhile. In fact, I liked it so much that after I finished the book I read the last few pages a couple times more. The ending is just so beautiful and sad and happy all at the same time.  I'd explain more about it but I think you should probably just read it.
