Raspberry Dreams

Bonjour lovelies, how is your week? Hope you're all having sweet moments. This week has been going by so fast for me! I love it. Last night I layed in bed and felt like I needed to get up and jump up and down on my bed because I was still in fast motion. Do you ever have those nights? It seriously felt impossible to fall asleep! My dream boat is back though, and I am so glad. Nathan has been sick the past few days, but I swear Ive never seen a happier and more lovely sick person. He can even make me laugh my head off when he can barely move any part of his body or speak. I suprised myself with how much I missed him, since he was only gone for 6 days, but I came to the conclusion over the weekend with a cup of tea in my hand, that everything is sweeter when he is around.



I felt like a walking raspberry today when I wore these tights. They are one of my favorite pairs. I think they were something ridiculous like two dollars, and im sure they will fall apart any day now, but I am smitten over them. They have this color that is so cheerful. Everytime I wear them I just feel happy...with my raspberry legs. And ofcourse this morning I couldnt go out the door without my new mirror necklace on. Isnt it the sweetest? I love mixing the idea of fairy tales in my head when I buy my jewelery. I like each peice to be different, but to tell a story - this necklace is obviously inspired by none other than the infamous Snow White!



I cannot believe it is already October. I was thinking about it this morning and just got so excited that I wanted to jump up and down (I was alone though - so this might look like insanity to anyone passing!) because I go home SO soon. Two months! Two months and I get to see my beautiful sister, handsome brother, and amazing mom and dad. And snow! And Tim Hortons! And mountains! I am waiting in anticipation for my package from the lovely Tieka because its going to put me in the exact mood for winter - wait till you see what it is, you will be just as in love as I am! Hope you have an amazing rest of your week! Kisses. x
