October Road

Bonjour everyone!

Let's start with the tag that was given to me by the oh so cute and very kind tea drinking english rose. Thank you!

the rules are: mention the person who nominated you. list 6 unimportant things that make you happy. tag 5 blogs. state the rules. notify them with a teeny comment on their blog that they have been nominated.

1. cuddling with my bunny
2. pink skies
3. watch a polaroid photograph develop
4. driving on the highway while listening to my favourite music
5. being able to stuff myself with what seems to be an endless amount of chinese food
6. planning future travels

And I'll nominate heart in a cage, mila, margot, cleolikesyou and jess!

- birds
There's something about birds I find so beautiful. I just love looking at them. Or at pictures of them. Or drawings. Or whatever other shape or form they come in.
