5 Truths To Staying In LOVE

jettedivine:

Ella had this bookmarked and I just stumbled upon it today… so sweet this post is!

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

When I was a little girl, I couldn’t imagine who I would marry but I knew that I wanted to get married. I would envision the wedding, and try to see the man’s face in my dreams. I would fantasize about who he would be and how much excitement he would bring into my life. My oldest daughter is four years old and she said to us the other day “Who am I gonna marry when I grow up?”.  There it begins. A little girls’ quest for the unknown, the inexperience and innocence in not knowing what lies ahead. The sparkle of hope and magical fantasies that comes with being a child. I think back to my adolescent experiences and smile because I had thoroughly enjoyed my journey through life and whatever wild times I had. I experienced much thrill, danger, excitement, exploration and self-discovery. Sure there were many tears…

Blinding

Seems that I have been held in some dreaming state
I tourist in the waking world, never quite awake
No kiss, no gentle word could wake me from this slumber
Until I realize that it was you who held me under

Felt it in my fist, in my feet, in the hollows of my eyelids
Shaking through my skull, through my spine
And down through my ribs

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

And I could hear the thunder and see the lightning crack
And all around the world was waking, I never could go back
‘Cause all the walls of dreaming, they were torn wide open
And finally it seemed that the spell was broken

And all my bones began to shake, my eyes flew open
And all my bones began to shake, my eyes flew open

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

Snow White’s stitching up youre circuit board
Synapse slipping through the hidden door

Poison and Wine

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
Your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine

Ooh, I don’t love you but I always will
Ooh, I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
The less I give, the more I get back
Ooh, your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice but I still choose you

Ooh, I don’t love you but I always will
Ooh, I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
Ooh, I don’t love you but I always will

I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I don’t love you but I always will
I always will, I always will, I always will
I always will, I always will

Do you even know where or to whom your heart truly belongs?

Did you ever?

Recycle, Reuse: two become one

Haha! The title whizzes me back to high school! And I won’t say anything more… :)

Anyway, for this recycled item, I used two old tops to make one dress.

top #1: plain shirt- used for the bodice of the dress.

top #2: animal print top- used for the skirt.

And, voila!

Well, I had hoped the dress would be more flattering on me, but it isn’t. And since I don’t want to get rid of it just yet, I’ll be tossing this into my sleepwear drawer instead. And speaking of sleep, I’m hitting the hay.

Ciao! Thanks for dropping by…
