you make me happy

He had an uncanny knack to bring a smile to her face while his pupils turned into cartoon-shaped hearts. They sat in his bedroom, folding soft teeshirts, while devouring a plate of nachos. They played hide and seek in a brightly coloured carnival tent.

They spoon-fed eachother peanut butter. They sat and watched an orchestra perform. They watched the stars from the trampoline in his yard. They caught snowflakes on their tongues in the wintertime. They had a sleepover in a treehouse. They sang along obnoxiously to soundtracks they loved and hated. They shared a big brown sweater.

butterscotch and delicate hands

I finally did it. I finally saw Breakfast At Tiffany's. It's quite lovely, and the imagery is nice. I'm glad I saw it. I like seeing things that are older, everything seems to have such charm compared to now. I was looking at my father's old school yearbook, it's weird to see how life has changed and stayed the same.

October has come, and already there is snow on the ground. A thin layer, but it is still upsetting. I was looking forward to rolling in the autumn leaves. I've been sitting in my home, drinking glasses of milk, and eating toast with jam. I've been dreaming of being wrapped up in a blanket with a special someone, and watching movies like Now and Then and Madeline, and maybe even Matilda or 500 Days of Summer.

I've been writing my own Happy Lists in various notebooks. I am in love with writing lists.

paper cranes, cupcakes, balloons, ballet shoes, peanut butter, orchestras, tea, bubble baths, editorial models, trampolines, blue skies, massages, people who write sweet emails, sending postcards, sparkly fingernails, hula-hoops and adventures.

I would like to have this.

— Anaïs Nin

I got together with some friends, and we made crafts, involving tons of glitter! I made a glittery dinosaur that I am planning on giving a very sweet person that I am getting to know. I like getting to know people. Especially people who want to get to know me back.
