all along

i still have your scarf
after all this time.
i've worn it all along
i wore it when the sun was gone
when the clouds were here, but you weren't
it made me think of you, and when times weren't so hard
it made me feel like you were with me and i could do anything

it smells like you
it feels like you
but it isn't you
come bring back the sun

Everyday I find myself saying i'm not
creative or artistic
elegant, or crafty, imaginative, or cultured.
But sometimes when I play my violin,
I get to pretend that I am.
I get to pretend that Im poised and confident,
that I'm refined and well spoken.

For a page, or two... or three or twelve, I know exactly what to expect,
and all my insecurities disappear.

And then its over. And I loosen my bow, and
go back to the

You've lost that loving feeling
I wish my life was like top gun. With ray bans, bomber jackets,
and rockin skinny jeans. If only there was always a sunset,
and I could fly planes like sparklers on the fourth of july.
I wish I had a wingman like goose, and an enemy like kazanski.
Although I was studying while watching this movie last night, and when
goose died I thought it was maverick... I loved this movie, and
it made me realize I was born an era too late.
"There are hearts breaking wide open all over the world tonight,
because unless you are a fool, that boy is off the market,
he is 100% prime time, in love with you!"

the princess is 2.

saylor jane. i love say. say. because she lets me paint her nails, curl her hair, and gloss her lips. she drools m&m's three hours after you give them to her, and her voice is a constant whisper. she loves her older brother river, and will do anything he does when most the time what he does doesn't make sense.. and she understands that. to most, she seems fragile, but she can definitely hold her own. i love say. say. because she always makes me laugh.

someday i'll do fashion marketing

someday i'll have the cutest little kids of my own

someday i'll live somewhere like this and love it

someday i'll shop at anthropologie till i drop

someday i'll have a husband who'll love doing things like this

someday i will fly a kite in front of my beach house

someday i will take my kids to the happiest place on earth

someday i will get this kiss

and give this kiss

isn't it nice knowing we have a forever of somedays?

Not too long ago, I discovered the website, and book Who What Wear.
It is the absolute most amazing thing of my life. I know that sounds pathetic, but I honestly love it. I have always loved celebrities, and all of that, but the main reason I love it all is their world of fashion. I would watch movies and award shows and choose my favorite dresses/ outfits, then go hunt the designers down online. It got to the point where I could find trends in which celebrity was wearing which designer, and I could find alterations they would make to the runway looks. This site was made for me. They don't worry about who is dating who, or how many kids Jon and Kate are fighting over, instead they know EVERYTHING about ANYTHING ANYONE is wearing. Its beautiful. They talk about trends, and everyday they make a post... except on the weekend (which are very sad days for me) Every morning I wake up and cannot wait to check the site. Definitely check it out, and hopefully it will help you appreciate fashion a little bit more!

Back To Blogging
