:: a november to-do list

listen:: the wind rustling the last of the golden autumn leaves; the lonely sound of wind chimes drifting from somewhere down the street; christmas carols; autumn leaves by ed sheeran

read:: holiday cookbooks; the book thief by markus zusak; that novel you've been planning on rereading since forever

inhale:: the hint of snow mixed in with the cool autumn wind; the scent of coffee & whiff of your favourite holiday drink as the barista hands it to you in a christmasy-red paper cup; the trace of cinnamon in the air from that delicious something in the oven

wear:: hoodies, skinny jeans, boots, & holiday patterned sweaters

do:: hang the holiday wreath on the front door; decorate the house with evergreen garlands & put up the christmas tree (because no, it's certainly not & never will be early); bake a batch of gingerbread cookies just because; sprinkle crushed candy cane over your vanilla ice cream; drink tea every day; go christmas shopping

watch:: your favourite classic holiday film; it's a wonderful life; the nativity story; the psych holiday episodes

i have no dear of depths 
& a great fear of
shallow living."

I'm Eve Victorie. My heart is out at sea & my imagination all over the place. I dream in sea blue & turquoise & I like stories more than anything. I believe in the little things in life because they are the ones that can make a difference. Windswept hair & sea breezes & coffee are my favourites.
