he is jealous for me
love's like a hurricane, i am a tree
bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy

if grace is an ocean we're all sinking

oh how he loves us.

delights to my ears.

i have been listening to avalanche city pretty much non-stop now for about 3 or 4 weeks. it is lovely folky music, written and played by a guy who comes from my country by the name of dave baxter. if you have a wee visit to the link below you can download the album for free (legally) it is wonderful, do it, do it!
clickity click

this is kimbra's latest which got her a bunch of attention from perez hilton. currently living in melbourne but originally from my city, she used to play songs while we sat on cushions and drank hot chocolates in the dark with tea light candles.

i am so dang in love with this song.

oh and these guys too,

what songs are you loving at the moment? x

hair wraps and picnics. i love my friends.

morning work-outs kick my butt in the biggest way, but just real worth it in the end. so i keep telling myself. thats all.
things i love:

celebrating the 21st birthday of my beautiful friend jess f(middle) in raglan.

the return of the boy after being overseas for a week.

how we fit.

how bad-ass kathleen is.

garage sale-ing with the ladies.

picnics where my best friend is involved.

going out for breakfast and always ordering some form of muesli and a trim flat white.

things i want more of in life.

coffee table books.
photos in frames upon my wall.
hours of sleep without cutting into hours of productivity.
tea cups and saucers.
breakfasts out with favourite people.

Love that will not betray you,
dismay or enslave you,
It will set you free
Be more like the man
you were made to be.
There is a design,
An alignment to cry,
At my heart you see,
The beauty of love
as it was made to be

i love you mumford and sons.

"It forced you to look up at the stars until you lost yourself in their beauty. Suddenly, much to your surprise, time stood still as the sun rose and your broken heart was filled with light."

my heart is very much filled with light. and so so much love.

i would like to drink this many cups of tea.

it's just the strangest thing, i've seen your face somewhere, an early evening dream, a past life love affair

listening to john. 3 sleeps til tonga. (judge me if you please but...) i went to the midnight screening of eclipse last night, and enjoyed it. bigtime. reading and re-reading through itinerary. coffee coffee coffee.

so i took part in this little thing called the 'simply delightful package swap' hosted by the AMAZING (i don't often use capitals) tillie from she waits for whispers

and my package arrived about two weeks ago now but fiiiinally i had a moment to take a few photos tonight to show you how spoiled i was. my swap partner was the lovely tillie herself and my goodness she made my day, week, month, all of it, and it put everyone i showed (i showed a LOT of people) in a good mood too, so...

how nice is her wiriting!? even the envelope was cute.

and inside, all wrapped up in brown paper, fave.

there was a third bow, it was in my hair when i was taking photos, its so so cute.

so incredible! hand made bow hairclips, earrings made by tillie, delish lip balm, a pretty nail file, chocolate, yummy tea, pin up post cards and cards also designed by tillie, the woman is a genius, myyyy goodness! and how amazing is the paper that letter is on!? each piece of paper had a different camera, safe to say my mind was blown. thank you thank you thank you, you lovely lady! eeeep, so much loveliness.

everyone check out her blog, it's a goodie, one of my favourites in fact. xx

i'm taking this writing a thank you note every day on board, in my diary, we'll see how it goes, i'm pretty excited. also, i'm listening to john and it's making me so happy. x

i wish i was daring enough to buy those really high, beautiful heels and to wear the red lipstick my mama gave me.

i have however, had the most beautiful evening, i stayed at home alone for the first time in two weeks, cleaned, ran and did washing. and then sat down with my new cardi on, the heater, lit tea candles and incense, switched on my fairy lights and listened to beautiful music... i have discovered that i am so event minded, but if i make the small things and my relaxing into mini events, i'm way more stoked on alone time. best discovery of the year probably.

edit: purchased the shoes, yeeeee.
