sitting inside one of my favorite coffee shops with one of my favorite people. it’s raining outside, my dream house is right across the street, i have ben howard playing, and i have time to simply d r e a m. it’s been a while since i’ve had the privilege of time to myself.

i’m dreaming of this house right across the street: it’s wood shake siding, brick chimney, big trees surrounding it, warm lights in the attic, and small front yard. it’s secluded while simultaneously being in the middle of the city. i dream of owning a home just like this very one; minneapolis is good at combining city living + lots of trees and lakes, so i’m thankful that that dream isn’t so unrealistic here. i dream of filling the house with a family and lots of food and laughter and love. i dream of slow sundays where the house smells like warm soup and pjs are worn all day. i dream of waking up early and walking across the street to the coffee shop i sit in right now to have a cup of coffee while i read the newspaper. i dream of flower boxes and cozy friday nights and favorite songs floating throughout the house. i dream of quiet, rainy saturday afternoons where we keep the windows open to hear + smell the rain while we read books and soft, classical music plays in the background. i dream of walking our pup through the neighborhood with friends and then having them over for dinner + wine + real conversation out in the front yard under string lights. i dream of you, of you, of you doing all of this alongside me. my heart hurts with how far i feel from you, with how far all of this dream feels. at the same time, though, my heart is hopeful for this. for you.


Outdoors ain’t really my niche.  How-some-ever, I refuse to use strangers’ pathways, even if I’ll never design as well as say, bibi, because I’M INDEPENDENT, MOM!!!!  It just feels odd.  A stroll down acnlpaths DOES give silly me ideas, though, like setting a fake little newspaper at Shari’s front door, or taking a stab at stone steps.  You judge the results. : /

The Pepper sessions ran from November 1966 to April 1967 and included more than seven hundred studio hours, on top of copious sessions for John and Paul, in which they shaped every song on the album. John initiated ‘Lucy in the sky with diamonds’ after he saw a drawing his son Julian made. He showed that picture to Paul, they both saw the chance to play with imagery like that of Lewis Carroll’s 'Alice in Wonderland’, and they finished the song together. 'I offered cellophane flowers and newspaper taxis’ Paul said 'and John replied with kaleidoscope eyes…we traded words off each other, as we always did.’

I’m sorry I haven’t been writing lately! This is loosely based on a part in Avatar the Last Airbender but I’ll avoid specifying it because it’ll spoil the story~ hopefully if you watched the show you’ll know lol.I hope you don’t mind and enjoy this drabble! <3

“I’m so excited for Y/N and I’s anniversary! I have so many things planned out! I’ve been sending her flowers for a while, though she hasn’t said anything about it yet..” He trailed off as his mind wandered. He heard no response from the rest of the members, no noise except a stifled sob from Jimin as he ran into his room.
“Well, I’m off then! I’ll see you guys tonight~” He smiled happily as he stepped out the door with his coat in his hand, the early spring was still cold enough to need a second layer of warmth.
