Love is...

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

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.

Jasmine tea

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

White chocolate
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!

  10. I stumbled across your blog and feel in love with it instantly! What a lovely post!

  11. Oh my, so many wonderful things in the space of this one post! I don't quite know what to do with myself. <3

    Though I doubt it would ever happen, I someday hope to own a house whose yard has a big willow tree in it. My great grandmother had one i her backyard, and while it didn't have a swing like your grandmother's did, it definitely made me feel like I was in a world of my own. I remember running in and out of the branches and thinking I was going into an alternate universe or something.

    I heard that about Jane Austen once before, too. It's kind of unfortunate really that she never was able to find her own love considering her books are so filled with it.

    Bright Star! <3 I'll spare you the gushing ramble. ;)

  12. I love your blog. And the song that is playing on your blog right now (Always Summer). And most of all, I love all the things you have listed here, they make me happy :)

    @ Krissy0 ooohhhh you!!!! And I know I'm so in a Austenian phase, i never want to wake up from this reverie.. i know, I can dedicate my entire life to Bright Star and Keats ^^
