my heart

i was tagged by cara for this one, and i really wanted to do it so here i go.

instructions: "with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a disney princess. if you want to join in, tag 6 more blogs."

a picture

a poem
where the sidewalk ends
shel silverstein

there is a place where the sidewalk ends
and before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.

let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends.
past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
to the place where the sidewalk ends.

yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
and we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
for the children, they mark, and the children, they know
the place where the sidewalk ends.

Bolda song
{p.s. jude kissed me once. on the cheek. i thought i was going to faint.}

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones
***update: it looks like they took down they song i had... it was "i know" or "battered broken" by jude. i love strawberry wine by ryan adams too though. LOVE it...not sure how it got up here. ???

a quote
"love the lord your god with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself."

  1. i love the photos you chose! i already did this tag awhile ago but i love the quote too!

  2. This poem is really beautiful. Already did this tag and can't remember why I haven't tagged you then... Silly me.

  3. i like you for so many reasons.

  4. I love Shel Silverstein! What a cute blog idea!

  5. Where the Sidewalk Ends is one of my all-time favorite poems. I hadn't thought about it in years--thanks for bringing back that memory. :)

  6. This is such a gorgeous tag! I adore it! xxx

  7. Oh, I love Chagal!! So beautiful. I think the lace wedding dress is amazing - - what I like most about this tag is the way all the different elements work together to create a complex "picture" of "your heart". So cool!

  8. wow these are amazing...and in case you do not know i am quite taken by goats...they capture my heart so of course i was drawn to that art immediately!

  9. Such a great post! I love the poem and the quote.


  10. Great song pick and I love all of your choices! You are one beautiful person. xo

  11. That is a wonderful poem. Believe it or not, I am a little teary.

    Yeah, I do that a lot. :-)

  12. Hi Jasmine. I am Maddie's http://maddie-thomas.blogspot.com/ (the photogragher's) mom. I love your blog. You are so beautiful and such a romantic. You remind me of exactly who I wanted to be when I grew up. So inspiring. I wish I had it to do all over again. Enjoy it all! It is a terrific ride!

  13. hi there! i'm a newbie to your blog so i thought i'd stop in & say hello :) i love your heart for people & life! it's a bit contagious to read about! oh, & your hair is awesome! congrats on your new house down there! love all the fancy paint colors, too! :)

  14. oh i just love this! i am definitely going to play along.

  15. Agreed! It was so hard to choose one picture, poem, phrase, etc. I absolutely adore Mark Ryden and I wish I had the money to buy one of his works. By the way, as a congratulations-on-moving present I'm determined to send you some cupcakes! I'll let you know in a few weeks when I get the chance to mail them~

  28. jasmine!
    i just adore your blog, i've been behind on reading, and it was wonderful to do some catching up. i did this tag a few weeks ago--i used a poem by shel, too! it was a hard tie between "where the sidewalk ends" and "put something in" - i ended up using the latter, but "sidewalk" is one of my all-time favorites!!

    whoa! long comment! but...thank you for the cute post! i hope the move goes smoooooothly as possible.

    love haley, a friend from

  29. This is a lovely post, lady.
