My happy place

Listening to the thunder on this cozy Friday

Sitting inside grasping my tea so tight for hope that it might warm my soul as much as my chilly fingers

Pondering things like spring, summer, love and sadness

It seems like the perfect day to sit on the front porch steps and let the rain wash over my body in a cooling refreshing wave

Letting it pull away all the things that are bothering me and to let it replace them with smooth wet raindrops, Each drop a little bit of relaxation

Hair dripping wet and drops running down my face moving around the hint of a smile and then back down my neck

time to go back inside. To sit in bed under the blankets and to look out the window as the rain falls. Listening to the thunder once again as a calming lullaby

this rain is my happy place.

warmer, brighter wonderful

These days are getting longer... sweeter, brighter. 

I look forward to rainy days and warm evenings. 

I wait for the day I can once again sit in the park and cuddle up and draw. 

These days are getting warmer.

 Heres a pretty song for your pretty day.

things to smile about...

It's snowing... yet again. 

Yes this can be a downer when you live in canada, or anywhere else for the matter, if your not a fan of cold blustery days. But you know what? Theres always something to smile about...

 Fresh baked goods, long bubble baths, watching friends in fuzzy PJ's, fruity smoothies, live bands playing in local cafes, seeing your special someone in a cute bow tie, doggy cuddles and hot chocolate in your favourite mug.... These are all things that are making me smile.

What makes you smile?

Patti McGee

Hello my lovely followers! 

Today I'm here to talk about Patti McGee. 
Patti McGee was 19 when she became the first professional female skateboarder in history. 
She started out as a surfer and when there was no where to surf her and her friends would go find a hill to skateboard. 
I find Patti such an interesting and wonderful woman for her courage and strength and no fear for doing something different. It was a very big thing being a female skateboarder and she is for sure a role model and ultimate bad ass.

Did I mention she made the cover of life magazine? Yep. 

(all images via google)

I truly adore this woman and am so happy I found out about her (first discovered her in my Tomboy Style book I got for my birthday).

Reading up on her makes me excited for the summer for longboarding and finally getting my board! 

Do you have any inspiring women you adore?

It's Valentines day!

Well happy Valentines day everyone! 
Today is the day for love, eating a lot of chocolate and having your calorie intake a lot higher considering all the wine, cheese, yummy food and candy you eat ;) but don't take that the wrong way! INDULGE in it! It't your time to shine baby! 
What did you do today? I ate pancakes, got a cute chocolate from my dad, went to work and drank tea! 

Love always

What I'm loving this week

This week I have been scrolling the inter webs quite a bit because I have been fighting a small infection and bad cold. And thats certainly no fun, but when you can stay in bed drinking tea and looking up beautiful things it somehow makes it bearable. So heres what I have found this week that I'm simply loving...

Unicorn flats?!?! Yes I want these... you can buy them here 

How sweet is this Summerland photo shoot? 

Kitty leggings! Holy mother of pearl I want these! You can find them at Modcloth 

I have no words other then wow.... Do I ever love chandler and Ross ;) (found on tumblr) 

The Civil Wars are wonderful.

And this song. Because its wonderful.

What are you loving this week?
