My policy is "Depend on no one". It isn't a very good policy but people seem to be underwhelming and spiteful at times. In the wise words of William Shakespeare, 'Expectation is the root of all heartache.'

I really want a giant dictionary. The ones that have the definition of every word imaginable in them. They are very heavy but very glorious.
(To anyone but myself the image and the post don't really go together, however I like the image and I was posting about something I like, so in a way they do go together.)

So it is thursday afternoon and I am sitting in my lounge room reading a book. Every ten minutes I hear something squeaky ride past my house, this goes on for about half an hour. The sound ceases for a time period that feels like fifteen minutes, then it happens again. The unknown is annoying me when the squeaky sound happens again so I decide to race to the hallway and try and catch the squeaky noise on its return journey down my street. It took about thirty seconds for the noise to return and when it did I saw a small girl on a bike with training wheels. The scene was beautiful.
Shortly after I heard a bell strike three times and the woman that lives a few houses away say: "Thats a lovely new bike!". The scenario made me smile and I returned to life.

I'm very sceptical at times, but lately it just seems as though love only exists in movies, books and song lyrics. Everything feels under whelming. I stumbled across this amazing engagement shoot by Shannon Nicole Smith today (via Ruffled), and it made me reconsider my evaluation. I love that this couple is so stylin' individually and they are engaged, it is just beautiful.
