I can’t help it.

I’m excited for honeybees, a mailbox and the sun shining through every window. I want a driveway, a garden and a wrap around porch; complete with rocking chairs, and breakfast with coffee and tea. I want to roast marshmallows at night, and paint the fence white. I want to look at the stars with the sound of crickets as music in the background.

I’m happy to be searching for a small little cottage to call home with you.

five happy things

1/ My hair is officially "long". It’s been a long (no pun intended) wait, but I am so happy it’s finally here. 

2/ My husband makes THE best salsa ever. It’s homemade and super healthy. I love it. 

3/ Music of choice lately: Florence + the machine, The Smiths, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford & Sons.

4/ Yoga. I’m about to stretch it out. 

5/ A long reading list. I’m so grateful to live in a world full of excellent books.
