happiness is a cup of coffee and a really good book

things that give me the sweetest feeling of home:

– a cup of coffee at just the right moment.

– watching a snowfall, rainstorm, or simply the leaves as they dance with the wind outside the window.

– a good conversation with someone I really care about.

– the aroma of cinnamon + cloves, or fresh rosemary.

– old favorite films. 

– music by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, or Nat King Cole.

– reading a really good book in a really comforting place.

– cooking + baking.

– the idea of tradition, and all that comes with it.

– happy memories of good moments had with family + friends.

She can’t look at the stars the same way anymore, for all she remembers is his eyes. She can’t make a cup of coffee without serving it the way he always loved. She isn’t able to finish books anymore, because they don’t always have happy endings. She can’t wear her favorite perfume anymore because it only reminds her of his smile appearing when he smelt it on her. Cooking dinner doesn’t have the same good feeling it used to. There are no more words she can write without somehow bringing it back to him. She can’t say “I love you” to anyone, because she never really knows if they love her back.

Quanto è bello dire “buongiorno”? Voglio dire, svegliarsi e sperare che le altre persone passino una buona giornata, c'è forse qualcosa di più dolce e positivo?
Buongiorno a te, buongiorno lei, buongiorno a tutti voi. Spero che passiate una splendida giornata e che stasera possiate andare a letto felici!
Ditelo più stesso!
