Lately//Winter 2018

The task of writing and posting my "Lately" post for winter 2017-2018 has been on my to-do list forever. Since December, I think. So here I finally am. Just in time for spring! :P (ha)
Let's jump right in. Lately I've been....

Well, that is I will be moving. Very soon. My family is in the chaos of another move yet again. Thankfully it's not from totally opposite ends of the country like last time, just to a different area of our state. Nevertheless, it's a whirlwind of mixed emotions—fear and excitement and doubt and hope. My parents have long wanted to move to this new area we're about to call home. And though I have certain regrets and fears about the whole matter, God's hand has been undoubtedly in this process—so I'm trying my best to trust His plan and not my limited sight. That's all I'll say for now. If I go AWOL from the blogging world, you'll know why! (Although I'm hoping that won't happen.)

~I finished reading the Harry Potter series back  in December. I still want to write a post about that series sometimes. *squints into the hazy, far-distant future* Yup. Sometime. (Suffice to say I LOVED the series and I'd definitely recommend them, as far as your conscience allows for it. I know some people have their doubts regarding the series and that's totally fine. I may share my own thoughts on the matter someday. :))

~I re-read An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott and found afresh how delightful and touching this story is. Even with the antique flavor of a by-gone age, this book contains a heroine that is so relatable. She struggles with so many things we struggle with now-a-days--finding joy and contentment in our day to day life, whether it's at home or work, learning how to build healthy, meaningful relationships, and being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. I just...really love this book. It conveys so many beautiful truths and lessons, without being preachy or moralistic. Though anyone can enjoy it, I think it's an especially inspiring read for us girls, because it deals so much with what we women should aspire to be—in any age. It encouraged and convicted me in so many areas, and I recommend it whole-heartedly.

~Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Yeah, this lived up to its name. Because Marissa Meyer must be heartless to write such a depressing story. It was brilliant and humorous and wonderful (ha).....until. That Happened. And That. And That. Ughhhh. If I ever read it again, I may not read the ending because IT'S SO SAD.
(Guys. Jest is so precious. <3)

~I read Meeting God at Every Turn by Catherine Marshall and WOW. This spoke to my heart, touching on many different topics, but mostly on the topic of trust. Trust for God's plan, His purpose, and His guidance. This book was beautiful. I already knew I love Catherine Marshall's writing, but this book cemented the opinion for me. She has such a way of writing that makes you feel you're reading a personal letter from her, not a book published for millions to read. Please put her on your to-read list, especially this one. It contains so much truth and encouragement.
Food for thought... “A Christian has no business being satisfied with mediocrity. He's supposed to reach for the stars. Why not? He's not on his own anymore. He has God's help now.” from Christy by Catherine Marshall

~Courtesy of a very dear friend (*waves*), I was introduced to George MacDonald's writing this winter, with The Fisherman's Lady and The Marquis' Secret. And I'm quite a fan now. ;) His writing is lyrical and full of God's Truth. I love that real, raw issues are dealt with in the story (very carefully, of course) and shown in the light of God's goodness. The hero never conforms to evil, but he never shys away from confronting it and calling it out, either. (Malcolm, the hero, is totally deserving of a the title of "hero". There are very few fictional heroes that truly embody that word, in every sense of the word. But he totally does.)

(For the record, I've been compiling this list of movies as far back as autumn, not winter. So hang on to your hats, it's going to be quite a list.)

(Also, many of these movies were watched on Clearplay, so I can't vouch for the content of all of them. Please use your own discretion when choosing what to watch, but if you have questions, I'd be happy to answer them. :))

The Finest Hours
This movie was so good. It's based on a true story about the Coast Guard in February 1952, in Massachusetts. I loved the tense excitement of the plot, the romance between Bernie and Miriam, and the determination and bravery of those men—the men on the sinking tanker (especially the engineer) and those who set out to rescue them, despite the opposition of their superiors. To me, it was a story about doing the right thing, no matter what the odds. And it was epic.

(Also, hearing Chris Pine and Holliday Grainger and all the actors put on New England accents for the whole movie was too cool.)

Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck), D. A. Brown (Michael Raymond-James) and the rest of the crew of the SS Pendleton struggle to keep their ship from sinking in Disney's THE FINEST HOURS, the heroic action-thriller presented in Digital 3D(TM) and IMAX (c) 3D based on the extraordinary true story of the most daring rescue in the history of the Coast Guard.

Captain America: Civil War
Guuyyyyyss. Every time I watch a Marvel supehero movie I think "YES. THIS IS THE BEST ONE." But then I watched this one.....and I think this may be the best one. Maybe. I don't know. :P

I have a lot of feels about Marvel that would not fit into this post, so I better save them for another day.

Guardians of the Galaxy 1 &2
GROOT. (That's all I'm going to say for now.) (Also, Rocket Racoon.) (And much. <3)
groot, Marvel, and guardians of the galaxy Bild

Naploeon Dynamite
At the urging of some friends, my family watched this movie and....I'm still not sure what to say. It. Is. Hysterical. But weird. And cringey. Mostly weird. Basically, you should watch it but you may hate me afterwards. :P (But honestly, Anna, you were right. It's ridiculously quotable. ;D)

I don't know why this scene cracks me up so much, but it does xD

The Greatest Showman
Short opinion? LOVED IT. Long opinion? Read my review here.

The Last Jedi
*Sigh* This would take much longer to go into than I have time for. Let's just say, there were certain parts I REALLY liked, but on the whole I found the movie much too meandering for my taste. I expected BIG things to happen, especially regarding the characters and the choices they make and the relationships between them all. I feel as if this story is still beginning too much, and how are they ever going to wrap it all up in only one movie???

Poe was epic, though. As usual. Whatever happens, I'm on his side. :P


While You Were Sleeping
Awww, this movie!! This was adorable and funny and just so darn cute. (Also, I may or may not have fell just a little bit in love with Jack in this movie....which is weird and awkward, as he plays Brian Denton in Newsies. :P)

Road to Avonlea
My mom and I are in the middle of watching this show, and all I can say is "where have you been all my life??" This show feels like happiness and childhood mixed together. <3 I absolutely adore it.
Reminds me of Road to Avonlea :)

The Jungle Book
Now THIS was really cool. Yes, granted, it's very different from the original. But I hardly minded, because a) to be honest, The Jungle Book was never one of my favorite Disney movies. And b) I just found this version so exciting and colorful. I really enjoyed it. :) Bill Murray as Baloo was hysterical, and I loved Bagheera. Mowgli was great, too. And though I think it's a little strange that he didn't end up leaving the jungle, I'm glad they didn't have him leave just because he saw a pretty village girl and decided to follow her. I never liked that about the end of the original. :P

(I do  need to re-watch the original, though, to refresh my opinion.)

Pete's Dragon
This movie gets an A+ on the aesthetic. Between the plaid shirts and the towering pines and the varying shades of green, I felt completely immersed in northern wonder and ready to take a road trip to Canada or wherever it is that it's so beautiful. Pete and Elliot were both very cute (also Jack, for that matter) (just sayin') (cough), but my brother and I both agreed that the story was kind of draggy and slow. Still, we enjoyed it.
(And yet the ending made me sob like a baby, I don't know whyyyy)
(Yeah, I do. Because I'm overemotional, that's why. :P)

Petes dragon 2016
Peter Rabbit
Now this I did not expect to enjoy as much as I did! It was hilarious! I loved it. I still am not 100% in approval of the "modern" take on Miss Potter's lovely characters....but it hardly matters, considering how happy I felt walking out of the theater. If you're in doubts about seeing this movie, doubt no more. It's bright and funny and BRITISH. ♥ Go see it. (Then we can talk about the cute animals, the lovely British countryside, the adorable romance, the music...basically everything.)

Thor Ragnorak

The whole plot of Thor and Loki's sister was boring in my opinion. And kind of ridiculous. How many secrets does this family have?? But most of this movie was so hysterically funny that anything that annoyed or bored me didn't really matter. Seeing Thor and Bruce Banner work together was GREAT.  (Tony and the gypsy. xD) And Loki was priceless, per usual. And then there was this scene....

Not much, I'm afraid. Most of my writing-related energy has gone into brainstorming, especially after some tantalizing ideas presented themselves for the characters in the fairytale retelling series I'm planning/writing/editing, etc. But you'll have to wait to find out more..... ;)


This ^^^ is amzing. I only recently started listening to the The Gray Havens, and they have a LOT of good songs, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.


Son of David by Ghost Ship (W O W)

By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North (really encouraging ♥)

Nobody Knows by the Lumineers (I can't decide if this song makes me feel adventurous or sad. :P)

Never Grow Up by Taylor Swift (this is saaaddd)

Newsies: The Broadway Musical Audio (you're welcome ;))

Going to Camp!
This past January, I went to a camp for the first time ever in all of my 19 years. It was a weekend "college and career" camp and I had the company of two friends from church so it wasn't too scary. ;) (All right, I'll admit: I felt a teensy bit homesick by the end of it all, but mostly because I was just so darn tired.)

Despite being exhausted, it was a fantastic weekend. We went tubing in the snow, ice skated late at night, drank cocoa in the dinging hall, among other things. The speaker for our chapel preached a really good message and I can't wait to (hopefully) go again next year.

(Although hopefully it won't be so freezing like it was this time. If I remember correctly, we rarely had temperature above 20 degrees Fahrenheit. :P)
. January . Winter Travel, Adventures & Discoveries

That trusting God isn't something to learn once ~ That whenever my mom scolds me for "wallowing" in my depression over certain issues (because I'm prone to do that lol) I always realize she's right, even if I don't want to hear it at the moment :P ~ That change is okay, even when it hurts ~ That forgiveness is REALLY important and so worth it ~ That just because life has to change, doesn't mean it won't be as wonderful as it was before ~ Being joyful and grateful takes determination

And most importantly, that no matter what changes in my life, Christ is steadfast.

*Sigh*. I guess that's all! I wish I could have gone into more detail on a LOT of the things I talked about in this post, but I really must get this post done with. I'm currently in bed with a cold and tomorrow my family has some tasks to accomplish regarding our move, so I hope I can get better in time to be a more helpful member of the family. haha ;)

Hope you're all doing fantastic and that you're NOT sick like me!! I can't wait for spring at this point....I'm ready for some warm weather. :)

What have you been doing this winter, friends?
Are you looking forward to spring, or do you wish winter would last longer?


  1. I was legit just typing one of these up! Funny how we think alike sometimes! :D I'll be back with a longer comment soon, I'm cooking rice and trying not to burn it by accident as I type this comment!

    1. Ahh, that's so cool, Evie! :D Can't wait to read yours! (I'm dreadfully behind on blog reading...)
      I hope your rice was yummy and not-burned. :D

  2. *ahem* I tagged you with a Liebster tag on my blog ( and you really don't have to do it, but I had to tag people and I only read like, five blogs, but one of the steps was to notify the people that you tagged them. So here I am. But don't feel pressured.
    I loved the Jungle Book! I watched it with my mom and dad, so we are planning on watching it again with my siblings sometime. It's been a year since I saw it, so I'm really looking forward to a rewatch.
    Pete's Dragon was okay, but the sentimental memories I have of the original will cause it to always have a higher regard in my heart.
    I cannot wait to see The Last Jedi. It comes out on DVD today, but we can't see it until we rewatch the first eight, so it's gonna take about three months, at least😭
    I'm actually suprised that Peter Rabbit was good! I haven't seen it yet, but the trailer looked kind of stupid. IDK, it looked like a movie complied of every slapstick gag in the book.
    Did you see Goodbye, Christopher Robin? What do you think about the other Pooh movie that's coming out soon? I feel like it will be too weird to watch 😂

    1. Thanks so much, Victoria!!! Your questions look so fun. I've been super busy right now, so I'm not sure if I'll get around to doing the tag, but I appreciate it all the same! :)

      I hope you enjoy rewatching The Jungle Book! :D

      I get that. :) I'm not sure if I ever watched the original, so I went into the new movie with pretty much no expectations in that regard.

      I hope you enjoy The Last Jedi!!!

      The trailer makes it look way stupider than it is, in my opinion.

      Now, I haven't but I want to! I haven't hear about the other Pooh movie. *looks up the trailer* Awww! The "live" stuffed animals do look kind of weird....but part of me thinks it super cute, too. :)

  3. so this post makes me just so happy because 1) its amazing 2) THE FINEST HOURS AND RAY SYBERT AND JUST YUS. every time I hear about that movie I just want to watch it again it was SO. GOOD (and what they did the accents like that THAT IS SO NEAT)

    and "nobody knows" LOL SAME. its sad and adventurous so I like it XD

    basically just love this post bc it had to many good feels. so thank you <33

    1. Awwww, thank you Sarah Margaret!! EEK RAY SYBERT. Yes. Honestly, he was my favorite in that whole movie. <3 It was a great movie; I'm glad you enjoyed it too!!

      I'm so glad this post made you feel good! :D

  4. Captain America: Civil War is excellent.

    Napoleon Dynamite made me laugh a lot. I should watch it again.

    I think you already know I love The Greatest Showman.

    The Last Jedi disappointed me to. So much of it was pointless. Whyyyyyyyy?

    While You Were Sleeping is one of my absolute favorite movies <3

    Just got my husband to watch Thor: Ragnarok for the first time last weekend. MAN, do I love that movie. I mean, they totally wasted Cate Blanchett, but the good stuff is so good I don't mind her parts.

    1. *chalks TLJ up on the long list of Movies I Adore Which Hamlette Does Not* ;-)

    2. I'm so glad you enjoyed all those movies, too, Hamlette! And YES. Thor Ragnarok was fantastic despite Cate Blanchett's part. :D

  5. NATALIE!!!! YOU WATCHED "THE FINEST HOURS"!!! I was just lamenting the fact that I didn't know enough people who appreciated how amazing that movie was when I read your post. (And, no, I wasn't just thinking about the movie. I've been rearranging my life a wee bit and I had to give the movie a new home on a new shelf--more on that some other time.) Isn't the movie spectacular?!!

    Oh, OH! Last Jedi--Poe was the only voice of reason in that whole movie...which is why I love him now. I'm with Hameltte, there were so many pointless bits in the film.

    I understand your Jack--appreciation, shall we call it? Haha. Adore that movie.

    Much as I trust you, my dear friend, I don't think anyone could really convince me to go and see "Peter Rabbit". Though I laughed at the trailer, I don't think I could take a whole movie with that kind of humor. I'd go mad! Haha.

    Wow, that IS a bit chilly, isn't it?! Not above 20?! Yikes! Thank goodness for cocoa!! :D

    Loved this post!! Hope you get to feeling better soon!!!


    1. Eek, that's so funny, Cordy!! I'm glad you now know me as a fellow fan. ;) (Ohh, hope the change hasn't been too difficult! I relate to the rearranging, due to recently moving myself. ;))

      Poe has been my favorite since the start, but I loved him even more in TLJ. :D But yeah....overall the plot just wasn't my favorite. :/

      Let's call it that. ;) It's such a cute film.

      I must say, I thought the trailer looked stupid, but the film itself was SO sweet. It had it's silly moments, but I was surprised by the amount of depth it contained, considering the movie. :) (Although I do totally understand about going mad with that kind of humor....)

      Thank you! I am all better now. <3

  6. Ohh, YES! Someone else who appreciates "An Old Fashioned Girl" like I do!!! It's just a simple, DARLING book, isn't it?! It's fresh and thoughtful and sweet. I love it. <3


    Oh, wow, that camp sounds like such fun!! *heart eye emojii*

    Ah YES to trusting God. I feel like that's a choice we have to make every second of every day. WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR MY LITTLE SILLY BRAIN TO GET IT INTO MY HEAD THAT GOD'S GOT THIS.

    And amen about forgiveness. That's also something I've been learning. <3 <3 <3

    "That just because life has to change, doesn't mean it won't be as wonderful as it was before" << That. That is a powerful, wonderful thing to realize. I've learnt that time and time again. It's such a painful thing to let go of your familiar comfort and cheeriness and take up a new one. But God knows exactly what we need and what is best for us and what will make our life what He designed it to be.

    I hope your cold gets better. :( *hands you a bunch of flowers*

    1. DARLING it quite perfect to describe it. I'm so glad you love it, too. :)

      SAME GIRL.

      I think you would have had a blast with us. :D

      "Every second of ever day". << Truth. And yessss, it's hard for my silly brain, too. It's ridiculous how easily and quickly I forget!!

      <3 <3 <3

      Awww. I'm so glad you understand and relate, Gabby. And I'm thankful God is teaching us both to trust Him more.

      Thank you! I'm all better now. *accepts flowers though* ;)

  7. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, The Finest Hours sounds really good! I love New England stories, as you know ;-)

    Guardians of the Galaxy. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS. Loved that movie, so, SO much.

    Looks like I'm really in the minority regarding The Last Jedi, here ;-) I absolutely, completely, and whole-heartedly adored it. I WENT TO SEE IT TWICE. This is not something I do, with any movie, ever. I hate re-watching things. But . . . not this time.

    I loved it because it got me thinking for days on end, sort of like Doctor Who and a few other stories I really really love. It was just very philosophical, y'know? It asked a lot of BIG questions about the nature of good and evil, and (I think, anyways) the nature of sin and grace; and my whole family sat around talking about it and the spiritual lessons it offered us. Which felt awesome.

    Plus, I related to Luke in this film more than I've ever related to any other Star Wars character before. Luke WAS LITERALLY ME. It was eye-opening, and it really made me examine my own fear of failure (because that's always been a huge part of my personality, thirsting for perfection, thirsting for success, and being terrified to fail). When he talked to Yoda and admitted everything he'd done wrong and how badly he'd messed up, I legit started sobbing. Just . . . yeah. <3

    Best of luck as you guys move to your new home--I know it's going to be a little rough, at first, but I believe God has awesome things in store for you there. *hugs*

    1. I think you'd really like it!!! And YES. I've always wanted to visit New England, but seeing it in movie form made me wanted to visit it even more. (Though maybe not live there? The winters look insane...and yet I DO live in Michigan. :P)

      YAY YOU TOO. <3 Who's your favorite character?

      I'm glad you loved it!!! <3 I wanted to, very much. And there were things I did love about it...there were just some things I didn't. :/

      Movies that make you think about stuff like that are SO good. I can't wait to rewatch TLJ and see what I think the second time around. :D

      *hugs* Luke is awesome and so are you. (But I get you. I love characters that I relate to but also make me LEARN things about myself.)

      Thank you so much, girl. *hugs back*

  8. Man. Heartless is SUCH a good book and I love it but I also hate it. UGGGGH. SO MANY FEELS. Jest is all kinds of awesome. <3

    I want to see The Greatest Showman! Can't wait for it to be released on DVD. While You Were Sleeping is one of my new favorites and I was a bit surprised at how much I liked Jack 'cause I was biased against him at first because he's played by Bill Pullman (who I didn't like in Newsies). But he's very sweet. Road to Avonlea is quite good, though I don't love it as wholeheartedly as some people. Gus and Felicity are great. I watched The Jungle Book semi-recently and wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did (especially having never watched the original animated movie).

    I went to camp for the first time, too, just this February. It was insanely good. Life-changing, even. <3


    1. I feel exactly the same. I want to hate it, but I just CAN'T, solely because of Jest. Aghh.

      I hope you enjoy The Greatest Showman when you see it! I just rewatched it (we got it on dvd heh) and I loved it just as much this time around. :) Same! I wasn't a huge fan of Bill Pullman in Newsies, either. But he was so great in WYWS.

      That's so cool!! I'm glad you had a great time at your camp, too. :) Thanks for the comment, Eva!!

  9. Finest Hours! YES! <3 absolutely loved that movie. It was so intense.
    And Captain America. ALWAYS. Eeeeeee *fangirl moment*
    cough. Anywho....
    I grew up with Road to Avonlea, so the characters are just like family <3
    The very last episode always makes me cry, but shhhhhhhhh spoilers. *wink*
    I see everyone else leaving long, interesting comments, but mine is going to be dull and short. Forgive me, please. ;)

    1. It WAS intense! :D
      *fangirls with you*
      Awww. I wish I grew up on it, but I love it so much now. :D Haha, NO SPOILERS! :D
      Of course I forgive you! Your comment is great!

  10. Agh we just moved last year, not far, but still. It's a very big thing.

    I LOVE OLD FASHIONED GIRL, and most of Louisa May Alcott's books that aren't as well known. And George MacDonald is an amazing author.

    Finest Hour was a good movie, one of the few movies with Chris Pine or an at sea movie that I enjoyed. Captain America: Civil War *sobs hysterically* so many mixed emotions. You should totally do a post that does fit you feels about Marvel! Oh my gosh I don't know if a week goes by in our family that we don't quote Napoleon Dynamite. So weird and awesome and hilarious. While You Were Sleeping is a cute watch (definitely several scenes needing Clearplay). Ugh I've wanted to watch Road to Avonlea but I've never found it anywhere.

    Okay Thor Ragnarok I just saw for the first time last night AND I SUPER LOVE IT. I agree that the plot withe his sister was boring but I didn't care because the whole movie was so funny and cute. I love Thor and Banner's friendship, and yes that scene is legit the best. I also love when Thor says "because that's what heroes do" and the 'get help' lines are awesome too. Just a great movie in general, in my opinion.

    OOOOH I love the Gray Havens! Idk why they're not more popular. My favorite song of theirs is probably Gray Flowers. Never Grow Up *starts sobbing hysterically again* all the feeeeels.
    Nobody Knows- 'I can't decide if this song makes me feel adventurous or sad.'- both, just both.

    Aw that sounds like a lovly camp!

    Wow... that was a very long comment. so sorry! Hope you don't mind... lol.

    1. It IS a big thing, Lissa. I hope your move went well and that you like your new home! I'm still getting adjusted to mine...

      Glad you agree! And ahhh yes, so many mixed emotions indeed. You think so? I may have to try to do that post sometime then. :D HAHA, our family is the same! Unfortunately it's taken me some years to find a library that had Road to Avonlea, too. I hope you find it someday!!

      I love "because that's what heroes do" too!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed that movie, too. :D

      I KNOW, RIGHT?? Their music is AH-MAZING. Ooh, I haven't heard Gray Flowers. Yet. ;)

      Of course not! Thank you so much for your comment! :D

  11. Hooray for moving. It's a lot of... I guess fun. Among other things.
    I need to watch Road to Avonlea.
    #this is a short comment


    1. It's definitely something. ;) You were moving too, right? I hope it went well. <3
      I hope you can watch it sometime! It's great!
      #no problem :D

  12. First off... Oh my goodness! You read some George MacDonald? I'm so so so so happy! :) :) :) :) I hardly know any MacDonald fans, and I've loved his books for so long! Way to go! :) I'm so glad you liked em!

    and a complete awwww with old fashioned girl... my heart melts at the end ever time.

    quick question... have you ever seen any of the Signed, Sealed, Delivered tv series?

    :) Love your posts!

    1. YAY! I'm so glad you're excited! And yes, I did like them very much. :D

      Me too. <3

      No, I haven't! What's it about?

      AW THANK YOU, HANNAH JO!! *hugs*

  13. Eeee, yay! These posts are always fun. :)

    Yay for new music! I'll need to check out the ones you mentioned -- I already love "By Your Side," the Newsies album, and "Never Grow Up." (By the way, if you want a REALLY sad Taylor Swift song, you could look up "Ronan." But it's actually a little bit devastating, especially if you read the story behind it, so . . . I don't know. I go back and forth on it, hehe. ;-P)

    And yay movies! I think I need to watch Napoleon Dynamite, just to watch it. ;-P

    And amen about all you're learning. We'll get through this life thing. <333

    1. Thanks, girl!!

      I hope you like them! I listened to "Ronan" and read the story. :'( That's so sad, but she did write a beautiful song for him. <3

      You should. :D

      Yes we will!! *hugs*

  14. I've watched while you were sleeping and road to avonlea!! I thought avonlea was a great series!!!! What season are you on?

    1. I agree about it being a great series, Brooklyne! :D We have season 3 out from the library but haven't started it yet. Hopefully soon!

  15. I want to see The Finest Hours, because I love Holliday Granger, but... I can't stand Chris Pine.

    Napoleon Dynamite. My family quotes it all. the. time.

    I loved The Last Jedi, but we all have our own opinions. :)

    I hope everything works out! :D

    1. Aww, that's too bad! He's pretty good in TFH. :) (So is Holliday!)


      I'm glad you did!

      Thank you!!!


I love comments as much as I love hot tea and a good book.....well, nearly, anyway!
Please keep your words kind and edifying.
