Grow down and open

My dear Rosie Posie has tagged me and i'm quite excited do to this one because it seems fun!
It's called the "Show your Heart" tag and the rules are...
With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in:
1 picture
1 poem
1 song or piece of music
1 phrase or quote
1 item of clothing
1 place
[And just for fun-] 1 Disney princess!
I don't know how exciting my responses will be but here i go:


I just got married in November, this is me and my hubby on the day. I tried to find some other kind of creative picture that sums me up, but really, this was the happiest day of my life and most of who i am is defined by being his wife


Joanna Newsom is a harp playing beauty, check her out.

Phrase or quote:

"Love others as much as you love yourself"- Matthew 22.39.
I want to be moved by love in everything to do. Putting others before yourself and doing things for those in need is the most amazing thing you can do with your time, in my opinion.

Item of clothing:

This outift by Lauren from Lookbook (see more here) pretty much sums up my style. Belted high waisted skirts, a pretty top, gold jewellery and long hair is pretty much me from day to day.


AFRICA! More than anything else in this post, this describes me. And it goes with my desire to be moved by love. And to be authentic in your desire to love people, you have to move on it because words alone mean nothing. My heart is to work and live in Africa. It feels like i'm already there sometimes.

Disney Princess:

And lastly one of my favourite movies and books growing up was Alice in Wonderland. I don't necessarily think i'm much like her, i'm probably a lot less adventurous but she was a childhood favourite that i've held onto.

Now i'd like to see Daydream Lily's answers for these!

    I cannot believe it...reading this amazing post was like looking at myself! really...okay, besides the married thing.
    But what you said about Africa is sooo me. It's exactly what i have been wanting for such a long time, since i was a child myself.
    I desperately want to move there and work there, important work that feels like you belong there to do what you're doing. <3
    One day...

    Also love that outfit you picked!

    Much love,


  18. your wedding picture is so sweet! and i love alice in wonderland as well :)

  19. hey sweetie, I loved reading this and learning more about you. I have always wanted to help people too, I grew up in a family with a long history of nurses and I think I inherited from them...more then anything I would love to do a teaching program when I'm in india..
