My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an Ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old grief's, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

one of my best friends is getting married tomorrow. its gotten me all sentimental and wishing i was close to where she is! but i do feel to young i will say that. she is 20 and she is going to be an absolutely stunning bride! im quite excited for the day. when she called me to tell me she was engaged i dont think ive ever been so ecstatic! and it made me cry of course. and just thinking about her standing up there makes me tear up too! the happy kind of course.
all i know about my wedding is that all the money will be spent on flowers :) and a vera wang dress.....the dress is me hoping and praying! they are so expensive. but sooooo beautiful. we'll see. maybe ill marry some rich, out of love of course.

ive had a pretty lazy day today! i have practiced for a wedding im playing at on saturday, lounged in bed, cleaned a little and washed my dress for tonight. im going to see an adelaide band, the temps. im quite excited! i was thinking of not going, and continuing this laziness. but i should probably get out a bit more :)
right now though its coffee time! i love this time of day so much that i drew a label for it!
Yeah, the train left the station, it had two lights on behind
Well, the blue light was my baby and the red light was my mind
All my love's in vain
All, all my love's in vain
daydream lily has alerted me to an amazing photography duo from sweden. waldemar and max. they take the most stunning photos! the models are angelic and the clothes are beautiful. i just wish i could live in these photos.
just a few things that i want to do this year. no resolutions, just things that i want to do better, or that i admire to change!
1. Relax; like proper
sometimes i tell myself that im relaxing, but really im not. i need the cup of tea under the covers with will and grace type of relaxing. or lying on the lawn with frankie type relaxing. i will do this!
2. shtudy hard
boarding college isnt really a motivator for me in terms of study! i got great grades at uni, but i could have spent so much more time and effort and gotten amazing grades. well i hope. so now that im in a house with less distractions, i shall endeavour to get sweet high grades and be proud of my work!
3. family time
pretty simple really. its hard to see them all the time. i just like seeing them everyday! if only i could live at home for the rest of my life!
4. coffee time
say yes, instead of "im busy" when im asked out with friends. if im the slightest bit tired or upset i just say no, whereas they could probably do me some good!
5. say fuji
take more photos. i need to get my digital fixed, although i rarely use it compared to my old slr. but anyways. i love my photos. and i am forever seeing amazing light and colour. so i should be even more snap happy!
6. blush be gone
i blush all the time. i blush when im not even embarrassed. i dont really know why. but i will work on being more confident so that i dont blush when i am embarressed. but honestly i think its just in my genes to be a blusher! its cute.....right?
sounds cliche but id like to drop a dress size. i know i dont need to, but i know i could tone up nicely, which would probably drop me a size and i would still be healthy. so yep. im gonna exercise more. now in search of that motivation....
8. back myself
yeh, someone told me a few times to back myself more. no one had ever pointed it out to me before. but i doubt myself in pretty much everything. its a big thing to work on. ill figure it out.
10. housewife practice
now that i have my own house and kitchen i can BAKE!!! ive made some delicious batches of things already and i cant wait to see what else i can conjur up. just getting in practice for when i have a lovely husband (where are you) ha. and garden :) flowers here i come
11. look book
dress for what i like, not to cover up my love handles. baggy, unneeded clothes be gone. well, not gone. but toned down a notch.
12. bargain bins
i need to save. big time. so its fortunate that i looooove love love op shops and markets. i cant wait to explore more, my new road has loooooads!
for my holiday once i finish uni. its going to be amazing.
theres many more. but thats just a taste.

yep. i can safely say that i feel the need to blog about every pretty thing i see. an immediate thought when sighting a nice object is; "new blog post, yessss". so therefore, seeing as i only recently in the last two months started this blog, there are a lot of pretty things i had saved in the past, which i now will have to blog about. meaning that there could possibly, just maybe, be lots of posts, because i have had no outlet for so long. enjoyyy.
