There you stand in your Dungarees

I have an eternity with Mr. Murphy.  
I like to dream about what it is going to be like.


This song evokes so many emotions for us. 

It takes you through the life of a young husband and wife and then the years pass them by and when they are old they realized that they never had the time to dream.

What are our dreams?  
What do we do to really accomplish them?



Not to be totally sappy here, but a few weeks ago Mr. Murphy took me on a date to go put-put golfing in 30 degree weather and then we went to go see Tangled.  If you haven't seen it yet, go now.  Close your computer, put on some pants (because i'm sure you're not wearing pants), grab your keys, and go.

Flynn Rider said something to Rapunzel that I will never forget.  She had a dream her whole life to see the lanterns rise in the sky and when she was right on the edge of fulfilling that dream she said this:

Rapunzel: I've been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it's not everything I dreamed it would be?

Flynn Rider: It will be.

Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?

Flynn Rider: Well,that's the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

Brilliant right?
I hope we are always searching for new dreams and trying our best to see them through.


We are living our dream right this very second. 
It is everything we hoped it would be. 
How sweet it is.

My husband and I were just sitting on the couch talking about our dreams for the year and I read your post. Isn't it great to dream and to not know where God is going to take us, but being okay with that because it's God and our life is in His hands anyways!!! ;-) Thanks for this post! You're a peach!

Happy 2011 Dear!

Ashley said...

Just found your blog today and I love it! I need to see Tangled, but I haven't yet. I keep hearing how amazing it is and my hubs and I love Disney movies, so it's unlike us to have not gone. I hope you guys have a great New Year!

I stumbled across your blog a month or so ago and just can't stop checking back to see what you and your hubby are up to. It is very nice to see such a lovely young couple enjoying their life together. I love the video clips of your music...you make an excellent duo.
