How Do I Love Thee?

22 Sep

How do I love thee on thy 30th birthday??

Let me count thy ways…

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of every day’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love with a passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life!


And, if God chooses,

I shall but love thee better after death.

A Touch of Heaven

26 Jun

So my Dad is an avid amateur photographer.

He is also a complete gentleman, and appreciates beauty in life.

On his current three month whirlwind, romantic trip of Europe, with the love of his life, who also happens to be my Mum (high-five for 28 years of crazy in love marriage) he has taken some photos which have taken my breath away.

It is no secret that I adore flowers. Anyone who knows me even remotely knows I have a love for anything floral, and dream about owning my own little florist one day, overflowing with pretty blooms and foliage.

These photos were taken by my Dad in Monet’s garden in Giverny, France.

I hope they take your breath away, as they did mine.
