What a special night to be out on the ice watching the aurora flicker across the sky. I could still hear the beat of drums from the New Year’s Eve drum dance celebration in town. Happy New Year - I can’t wait to find out what 2016 has to offer. Tulit’a, Northwest Territories, Canada.
“The stars dust gold leafing on his skin. And we are looking at each other, just looking, and I swear there are whole lifetimes lived in those small, shared moments.” — The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I am also maybe a tiny bit drunk. —The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
We are not broken things, neither of us. We are cracked pottery mended with laquer and flakes of gold, whole as we are, complete unto each other. Complete and worthy and so very loved. ― Mackenzi Lee, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
One of my favourite books of the year so far ★★★★★
