la vie en rose... (so very original)

My friend is moving to Paris. I am crazy envious, and can't begin to explain how excited I am for her. So, in honour of her eminent departure, I shall be learning one french phrase a week.

This week's phrase:

"Je suis terriblement jaloux de son."
"I am terribly jealous of her."

Imagine if you lived here...

This is me in Paris! 

the final countdown

I woke up this morning with a knot in my stomach because I realised that our wedding is only a little over 3 months away. I would be lying if I said that planning our wedding has been the most stress-free, smooth-sailing experience! I had really started to consider running away with Lewis and doing it somewhere far away and very fast, however I know that we would both regret not having our families and dear, wonderful friends be part of our day. As the time gets closer, things have really started to fall into place, and we have had such amazing help, but I have to say; I just want to be married to him, to hear the words, "I now pronounce you husband and wife"... because that is all I want. So I am going to countdown to that.

96 days until The Wedding.

"Here I Am" - Air Supply

I wish I could say that my motivation to start a blog was based on a need to share my insightful, witty and terribly clever thoughts with a wider audience other than my darling (poor!) fiance, close family and friends. This is not so. I have been mulling (love this word) over the idea of a blog for some time, and with a lot of encouragement from a certain best friend, I have ventured into the world of blog.

The idea for my blog is not something new, and so I highly doubt that I will have many followers, but that is not of great import. I am in need of a creative outlet. I am, at the moment, directionless. I don't exactly know what I want to do with my life on a personal/career/project level and don't really feel like those decisions will be made any time soon. So, in the mean time I shall warm my heart a little by finding things I love and sending them out into the cosmic void to be appreciated with one thing in common; they will all be, quite simply, 'dear-to-me'...
