black velvet lace, and my feet finding space~*

Hello bananas and carrots sitting in my belly. Hello Tuesday. 
I want to send my head to sleep, and dream of a place where chains of tropical color bind the trees together, and the days and nights are equally beautiful.  Instead, I sit here, drinking coffee, losing sleep, watching the fireplace grow, wishing I was somewhere warm.   It's winter here, and it will be Christmas morning soon. The spirits of Christmas make me miss the flowers, sunny sky, and blades of grass a little less. It's Tuesday, and my eyes are open. I'm finding comfort in a cotton sweater and a hot cup of lemon water. The air around is filled with holiday spirits. The scents of ginger, cinnamon, and pine welcome the Christmas feelings.

For the outfit details, I'm wearing velvet boots purchased on my birthday from forever 21. I could count the ways forever 21 comforts my shopping habits, but firstly, they have beautiful, eccentric, and daring pieces of fabric, for pocket change. These boots were only $40..  There's only one cause for frown with these beauts.. The velvet collects the dirt and snow. But I can breath with that.

A week has passed since my birthday. How time goes. It's been a week colored with new beginnings and footprints in new places. On Sunday, I spent the entire day in one pub. It began with eggs on toast, a little gin & tonic that brought me glistening eyes, and the night finished with celery sticks. There's so much alive in this world that escapes the eyes of youth. I've spent 17 years away from pub atmospheres, electric lights, and night owls.

If you put your head on my chest, you'll hear heartbeats. In those heart beats you'll find deep roots leading to sparkles, and lively thoughts.  2010 is saying goodbye, and 2011 is dancing on in.  I think 2011 is the year I'll find gold. By January 1st, I'll be wearing nothing but smiling teeth, and squinted eyes(okay okay maybe I'll dress in clothes too)... But I have a deep sense of happiness for the new year.  
May 2011 welcome glittering sunbeams even on wintered days.
