With pineapple wallpaper...

Dear Jamie,

I'm glad we got to fly away together, for a short, but special time...

I loved sitting with you in the taxi, and walking through the city streets.  I enjoyed our conversations, about big, and little things - you always interest my mind and soul.

I loved having breakfast with you in a room that had stripy chairs, and pineapple wallpaper!  Which, between your smiles and such decor, made my scrambled eggs and fried tomato taste even more wonderful.

I loved us getting inspired by, and discussing marvellous "chandeliers" in shops, and various paintings, and sculptures we passed by.  I loved the way we sang, and danced along to whatever music we heard, as though we weren't in public...

I was glad to know you got onto the plane alright, I was sad to go home alone.  I was glad we were given the chance, for a last goodbye.

Yours patiently,


Shell xx

  3. Beautiful Shell. It's so heartwarming to see a young couple in love after years of marriage (and not afraid to show it):-) xx

  4. Oh sweet friend, your love for Jamie and his for you inspires my soul - it is good and true - and it was obvious from the very first time we meet. I am sad we will miss him when we come to visit; but expect an especially big hug from me!

  5. And I finally watched Once a few weeks ago; it is one of Alex's favourites... I adored it. And everything about The Swell Season!!

  6. Thanking and blessing you special and kind women.

    End Emily, I have it on good authority that The Swell Season will only grow and grow on you! So glad Alex loved the film too! I think I'm going to love love your husband as I am now extra confident of his good taste in wives and film! Looking forward to your visit.

  7. What a beautiful post, so much love ♥ xx


Thank you for your thoughts...
