Where does the time go?

It passes by so fast, it's almost hard to remember what I have been doing all this time. Sometimes I think I walk through life half asleep. There are dreams, there are nightmares, there are fairy tales and and scary tales. But at some point I always wake up, like days like this and I see what is around me, what is true and what is myth. True stories are mostly kind and sweet, but there are those certain tales, that scare me.

When I can't wake out of those, that is when I really just want to sleep through it.

All in all, as this year comes to a close I will live the next year in our first home. With enough space not only for things, but enough for new stories to be written.

I hope everyone has a very Merry time of year. Don't let it pass you by without taking it all in.

Love.Peace.and a new fairytale.

I feel worn out. I haven't done a lot to merit feeling this way. I think this feeling is more of a mental toll, then physical. Perhaps it is the air, the cold, the bite from the chill.

I feel like I can barely keep my eyes open.

The closing date is looming for the house Scott and I have bought together. I am beyond excited to have out first real home. Although the way my mind works, I am more overwhelmed at the thought of moving, of renovating. It takes way some of the joy, only because I stress more then I know I need too.

But it is who I am, this is how I work.

Christmas is almost here.

I can hardly believe it how fast this year has gone. Maybe that leads to some of this feeling. That I can't fathom how this whole year has passed. I turned 30 this year I am sure that lends itself to my moods, when they go a little off the path.

Despite it all.

I know I am so lucky.

Some really sweet notes I found on lelove blog. 

All the posts she puts up are so heartwarming.

I love good, real, true, filling love. Reading about the up and the down of love and life reminds me just how really lucky I am. Lucky in relationships. 
In love and in my friends. 

My life is so full of love.

From Olsens Anonymous blog. love her blogs.....
I love MK jacket, and the long sweater on Ashley reminds me of high school when I had all these awesome long cardigans that I loved to wear, I felt so unique.. they are long since gone away for someone else to enjoy, but I still miss them, I miss all the clothes that have passed through my life and went to other homes to be loved all over again...

Can someone take me to Paris and take me to Colette?



Monday Morning blues..
Am I right? Are you feeling them? Maybe it is the impending winter, the snow.. the chill in the air that is making my bones ache..

I think the underlying stress of our first home purchase.. and the moving and the packing.. I don't know what this feeling is, the not knowing what is to come...

I am also really tired, so perhaps that is bringing on this slight melancholy..

It will come together.. I am looking forward to warm fires, and bright Christmas lights everywhere.

I love how in his room, it looks like a clothing store. I would love this so much. I think it would make me feel like everytime I went to get dressed, I was shopping for something new.

You know when something is happening to you, something that is so big you cannot begin to grasp the enormity of the moment until it has long since passed. It's like your brain, your body, your heart and your soul cannot take it all in at once. It has to seep into you slowly. I've been feeling that way lately about a lot of things...home shopping, people passing, New York, hospitals stays, moving, staying, coming and going.

At times, it really can seem like too much.

Such a major decision. Buying your first home. Do you buy the first one you love, or do you keep looking? It is the most intense shopping I have ever done. The thought of having a home in mind blowing, and terrifying. But so exciting. The prospect of the amount of space we would have gave me butterflies.

I find home searching to be really emtionally draining, not all bad ways, but it takes such a big part of your heart to invest your life into a building.

At least I have one thing I am sure of. The person who I am going into this with.
He is my real home.

Just when you think you know what is going to happen in life, something actually happens in your life and changes everything.

A few good rules to go by, one, take noone in your life for granted. Ever. Never take for granted that you will see them the very next day. What if it was the last time you say them ever. What would you come to think of the last thing you said to them, are you ok to carry that from then on. Never take those you love for granted. Not ever.

Two, live your best life. You get one, live it the very best you can. Don't hate yourself now, when you are all you have. There is one you, and every single thing about you, is amazing.

Sometimes you just have those nights that remind you more, what you are and who your have. Makes me sad, makes me happy... makes me realize I am not numb inside, that I still have hope to be able to live with it all.

Don't give up. 
Not yet.

Time, time it goes, it passes. It brings, it takes away. It changes, it stays the same. Like all things, it comes and goes like the tide of an ocean. New things are swept into your life as things are swept out to sea. Just when you think you know all there is to learn, something turns your world upside down. Do not take for granted the things you think you know and confuse them with something you know nothing about.

We take steps forward to get back to the place we wish to be at, all the while missing what you finally have in front of you.

All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

I had a dream of a birthday, and the celebrations continue on. It is my boy's birthday tomorrow.. October is the birthday month. Turning 30 wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Looking back at the 20's and seeing how far I have come and how happy I am now, I am really ok with where I am in my life. It is the most amazing feeling and I hope that everyone can have that in there life. We all deserve too, we all need to. To know that where we are in life is good, that it is right. Believe me, I know that it does not come easy, I didn't really think I would ever be at that point, but I am there, getting there, mostly there.. it changes day to day. But I know I am closer then I have ever been, and it is the most beautiful feeling.

The rumors are true. I am waving good bye to my twenties, Kate is waving to me from them, and I am greeting my thirties with open arms.

Things are only going to get better. This I know.

1st post

A new blog...
I started with my Worth blog, and then thought to add another one, it was more of an experiment to try and fix something in my blog and then I thought maybe I would keep this one too...this blog, shine on baby, will be about fashion too, I mean, I just can't get away from how much I love clothes and fashion and shopping and looking... I just get so caught up in fashion. The images, the feeling that is provokes. All the amazing things that designers are doing are so staggering, that I can't even wrap my mind around it sometimes.

The name shine on baby was inspired from the love of my love, Scott. He wrote this sweet inscription in a Louis Vuitton bracelet he gave me as a gift for my birthday. In it he wrote, Keep on shining Baby. And I really loved that, it just summed up everything I had ever wanted someone to say to me. 

I hope that this blog becomes something that people really look forward to reading and loving!

Best, Lisa
