Summertime Sadness

The gorgeous and talented Miss Lana Del Ray said it best in that hauntingly beautiful voice of hers:

“I’m feelin’ electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin’ ’bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I’ll die happy tonight”

While my favourite summer tune makes me smile in a close-my-eyes-with-my-head-back kind of way and feel anything but sadness, the lovely Lana insists she’s got that summertime sadness despite declaring she’d die happy tonight. Lyrical confusion aside, I’m feeling rather electric as well, if not solely for having my bad babe by my side, loving me even in my closed-eye-smiling and dancing around kind of state.

Summer is an easy season and I’ve been so busy being in love I haven’t put much time into writing, even though that love of mine is constantly encouraging me to keep up with my passions. I never dreamed of knowing love like this and am so goofily, dreamily, head over heels happily in love; he is so perfect in every way – so patient, charismatic, a natural leader yet still modest, the most fun person in the world, always up for anything AND he’s incredibly handsome (trust me, you’d be distracted too!).

Every time I try to write a piece on my own that hasn’t been assigned to me, I have a really hard time coming up with a topic as all I can think about is my better half. Then I start smiling and daydreaming about him, thoughts wandering of last night’s late-night dinner date, his chivalry and never ending sweetness towards me or simply coming home to the best bowl of fresh made popcorn ever, him knowing it’s my favourite snack. So I though I’d explain why I’ve neglected to write a bit and gush about why I can’t focus on writing as I’m a big mush of love. There really is nothing better in the world than being in love and I’m enjoying every second of it. Je t’aime, Travis! X
