And me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not some place you can look for, cause it's not where you go. It's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something, and if you find that moment it lasts forever.
Truly this is a weekend of love, and what do I love?
Sunlight pouring through, kissing your face and bathing its glow throughout the entire room
Dior and Chanel's Haute Couture SS 2010
An American in Paris film
Balloons in the sky
Sitting under a big willow tree with a book in your lap... my grandmother used to have these two great willow trees in the front yard with a big swing underneath in her previous home and a small forest in the backyard... it was my escape to my own little world. I'll never forget those summer days I spent when I was a child there.
Jane Austen's works - i remember from somewhere that mentions how in her own life, she was not able to find her own happy ending, but that her characters in her novels she would give them that love and such beautiful endings that would make up her own.
Treehouses. My grandmother's neighbor had a huge one with a latch in the bottom of the room and slides, a bridge, and on the wooden front door, we painted "Our Club" on it. Adventures never ceased there.
Beautiful big open windows with white curtains being lifted from the breeze and the scent of lavender surrounds you on a summer's day
Going on a hot air balloon and having a picnic there
The English countryside
By the seaside in a white cottage
Painting with watercolors
The sound of a cello against the melodic keys of the piano
Flowers in beautiful vases
When a guy has an accent...(it melts my heart, and I don't think I'm the only one who agrees)
Delicate perfume bottles (i've kept all of the ones I had)
Beautiful old journals
Old- fashioned feather pens with ink bottles
Walking along the boardwalk near the Harbourfront on a bright and clear day and watch ships sail by.
Dancing badly (on my part). I get so blissfully giddy when I do that with someone I love.
Midnight chats with friends
Beautiful ballet-inspired dresses
Seashells and hanging them up with satin ribbons
Going to the art gallery and stand among the greats and their proof of the extraordinary.
So here you go, a glimpse of what I love, what are yours? I'd love to know!
Take care and that's all for now, ciao!
