flower petals

I can't believe the newspaper print already says August 13th. I can still recall the first tulip of the season, and the first thorny shrub I stepped on. Many plans were built for my summer, but few of them came to life. This may sound unfortunate, but it's really more of a "spontaneity built the summer" sort of thing.

Instead of putting my footsteps where I intended them to go, I came upon a different path. You know the one, where instead of following checklists, you're just floating in the wind.  Every morning, the only guarantee has been coffee brewing and the dogs barking at magpies. The rest of the day is uncertain. I kind of like it this way.

Me and my mum took these pictures weeks ago. We went into a beautiful park, and the wind would not stop pulling at my dress. That and I had just drank a bunch of chocolate milk, so I was feeling a bit like a freight train. The dress and earrings were sent to me from my sponsor, Romwe. Just look at the sweet family of deer!  The flower petal wedges were sent from Oasap, and they have won my "favorite pair of shoes" award.

Sorry I haven't been around much. My wisdom teeth have been complaining. They really like to push through my gums and make my days gloomy. Soon, they'll be gone and I will be chewing as I always have.  Except, maybe, with a greater appreciation for those sweet things that are difficult to chew now.

I have about 6 posts coming your way. Please forgive me for being a slow blogger. 
I'm leaving the house now to get the folk festival film developed. I've always been a bit nervous developing film --- you never know what kind of colors or faces you'll find in the end result.

See you soon.

  11. I love how a set of pictures can remind you of a day in time. This was a spontaneous backdrop but it worked out perfectly. You always look lovely ...you always pick the perfect combinations, making the photo taking easy. Don"t fret about the waning days of summer...we live in such a lovely place that all seasons provide the right amount of beauty and serenity. xxoo

  12. I love the little tutu under that dress! It's so girly and pretty. And I love the milk maid braids in your hair. I can't believe summer is almost gone, but when the heat is as bad as it is here, I long for fall! <3
