miss this...

It's rained all week.

I miss the days
 like these photos,
when I could go without a jacket.
For that was last month.
When it warm enough to ride a bike, 
without melting into a puddle.
  Lately all I've seen are mud puddles.
Then there's the humidity.
I sat in traffic for more than 3 hours yesterday.
It was only supposed to take 1 hour.

Whenever it rains here, there are traffic accidents.

 I miss petal pink flowers. 
So, I will look at things
 that remind me of spring,
like these colors.

I miss my twin nieces,
 for it's been more than 6 months.
I plan to see them this Sunday.   :)

I smile when I think of them being friends
for each other. 
I've heard that's how it is with twins.
I was reminded of paper dolls, in a book.

The character in the book said, the only thing she liked about paper dolls, was changing their clothes.
That was always my favorite part.

These are photos of my paper doll books,
I've had them for years. I got them as an adult.
I still like to look at their clothes.
I don't know if I ever plan to use them.
  My guy & I are going on a road trip. I don't know if I'll have much time on a computer.

Some things are difficult to predict,
like the weather.

I just hope it stops raining. 


  1. Where are you guys headed? Have fun! I remember Mary E. art/ cards. I used to get frustrated by paper dolls as I imagined it being more fun than it was.

    I too sometimes the sun, but we need the rain to grow those flowers. Not on the dresses though. :)

  2. i miss these kinds of days too! i can't wait until i don't have to bundle up every time i leave the house! xx sylvie

  3. I know how you feel, it's meant to be summer here in Australia but it hasn't gotten over 25 degrees. If it rains on Christmas I will cry

  5. have fun on your road trip! close your eyes and imagine it is Spring season!!! everything is on your mind dear ;)

    love your pictures and your nieces are so cute!!!

    happy weekend,

  6. I feel somewhat opposite.. I miss the rain.. we never get rain here... lately it has rained though.. but only for 2 days and really poor rain... It never rains in here, I like gray rainy cloudy days.. should we switch places so you enjoy the sun and I enjoy that rain?
    ..I appreciate your point of view on my Frida post, I guess we all react differently.. hope you have an awesome week-end gettaway.. stay cool!

  7. I loved those pictures, I love great places and contact with nature, this Sunday I go to a park and perhaps in the second and put the photos on my blog ... I love love love it!

  8. I MISS THE SUN TOO! I just wish it would stop raining too!

  9. So sorry to hear about the weather and you sitting in traffic for so long. Hope you have a great time on your trip!

  10. Teddi, thank you so much for your kind words, they mean so much. I was so exhausted and stressed that I did not remember changing my header until the next morning when I checked it. I must have just passed out from the pain, stress and the wine didn't help. Have a great time this weekend being free and wandering on your trip. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  11. Eww I very much dislike rainy and/or cold days where it is no fun to go outside. They do make you long for far away things.

  12. Well I'm glad I could make you laugh. Laughter is ALWAYS the best :)
    I love laughing 'till I pee (but then after I pee I dont like it so much)

  13. have fun on your road trip!
    ah.. so true! the traffic gets worse when it rains :(


  14. you miss summer and I want to live a winter sometime in my life... jaja a big hug

  15. ohhh they are so sweet! :) Nice Missoni collection for FW 2011 :)


    Have a great weekend :)

  16. Ahh I miss sunny days too D: It seems like forever since it was last warm here! Your photos are lovely but they make me miss summer too much, haha. Your nieces are adorable! Have a fun trip :)

  17. you'd love it here,it's pretty sunny most days.But I'd love a white christmas, instead of a stinking hot Aussie chirstmas.

  18. I miss summer too, winter is just so dreadful xxx

  19. Roadtrips are so much fun. I'm sure that'll take your mind off the rain right away.

  20. Your vintage paper doll books are cute. So are your nieces. I hope the sun comes out for you soon :(

  21. Oh man, I used to love dressing paper dolls! Where are you goin' on your road trip? There's always a part of me achin' to get out on the road. One day!

  22. Your baby pictures really made me smile!
    You were such a cutie person and even till now,
    but you've turned into a more beautiful and ladylike.

    P.S. I have mixed emotions... I wish Mr.Freddy remains a baby but somehow I am very happy witnessing his milestones. It's my joy watching him grow up.

  23. Interesting post!
    Your nieces are adorable!!!^^


  24. all the photos are incredible!! the babies, the nature, and the outfits are all beautiful :)))
