In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

All women who grew up in the ’90s know that there’s nothing better than looking back and remembering all the incredible music, fashion, toy sand games that made the decade so special.

Sadly, many of our favorite items have either been lost, thrown out, or sold at garage sales and have made it into the arms of someone very lucky. But with Christmas right around the corner, you surely started to think about what to get your sister, girlfriend, wife, or best friend.  Well, what better gift than one that screams ’90s girl nostalgia?

Especially since there are so many incredible ways to do it. From stick on earrings,  to ’90s coloring books,  nostalgic candy, gelly roll pens, scrunchies,  ’90s trivia games,  butterfly hair clips, polly pockets, disposable cameras, lip smackers, and so, so much more.

The internet is filled with nostalgic items that can be ordered on Amazon or Etsy to make your stocking stuffing process as special as can be!
