dreams



...a dream is a wish your heart makes...
I love this dress. It reminds me of space and I'm wondering if I can make a skirt like this with a slightly darker scheme to look like a galaxy....


...years of dreams just can't be wrong...
Anastasia: The New Broadway Musical



...i walked with you once upon a dream...
Sleeping Beauty. I love this one because her dress is true to form of how the story really went with both pink AND blue

...i dreamed a dream in time gone by...
"Now life has killed the dream I dreamed."

...don't take much to be a dreamer...all you do is close your eyes...
I LOVE THIS MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD


...here's to the ones who dream...

...'cause way down deep inside i've got a dream....
Tangled<3:) All those days, watching from a window. All those years, outside looking in.


...now our dreams...they've finally come true...

I don't have much of an explanation for this post, friends. One day I was ruminating on some of my favorite musical theater songs that all have the word "dream" in them....and then this post was born. I know there are probably dozens of songs I'm missing, but this was still fun to put together. Sometimes I need a reminder that it's good to pursue my dreams. So, if anything, this post is a reminder for me—and anyone else who needs it—to....
"Go. Live your dreams."

PS. If you want to read some really good posts about dreams and the pursuance of them, read this and this. :)

  2. Wow. Never realized so many musicals and films had a line relating to dreams.

  3. I know I'm leaving this Doctor Who quote everywhere, but I don't care 'cause it's awesome:

    "I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes, the dreamer of improbable dreams."

  8. Aw, this was so sweet, Natalie. :) I've definitely noted the theme of dreams in a lot of movies and books and songs...

    Sometimes, I feel like we get confused about our dreams. But I think they're good things, and I think we should have constant gentle reminders to not give up on them. :)

    (Also, some of these. GOSH. <3 <3 The Anastasia one! <3 The Newsies one! La La Land! So many I know and love!!)

    Olivia's posts are beautiful. :) I read a few posts that I absolutely loved on the topic - this one: http://www.melissatagg.com/dreams/ten-tips-to-chase-your-dream-part-1 and this one: http://www.melissatagg.com/dreams/ten-tips-to-chase-your-dream-part-2

    1. Thank you!! Yes indeed! It seems to be a popular subject among us artists. ;) (Which totally makes sense, after all.)

      Agreed. Not EVERY dream we find fascinating is something we should pursue. Only the ones approved by God should be followed. :) Of course, learning which ones are approved can be a messy process...but if we follow His leading we'll find the way. After all, "every good and perfect gift" comes from Him, so it follows that our good dreams definitely do. It would be going against His will to NOT follow them..

      Okay, sorry, I'm rambling. :P

      (<3 Glad you enjoyed them!!!!)

      They certainly are. Ooh, thanks! I'll definitely check those links out. :D

    I find that sometimes posts that just "started out as a feeling" (*gasp* WAIT NO I CAN'T DO THAT SONG) end up being the most delightful! (Also, AAAAALLLLLL the fangirl fandoms in this post! I especially loved the Jack lyric and picture <3 And the very first picture . . . and ALL of it . . . :D)

    Thanks again for the splendid reminder and lovely post, dear one! :D <3 <3 <3

    P. S. Oh my gosh, the pictures really do make me so happy. It's such a pretty, beautifully done post. :')

    Okay I'm going, bye.
