Lately my head has been all over the place. I can’t help but overthink this online place of mine and it’s just meant that I’ve rarely posted, and yet here we are today. I love writing on this blog, LOVE it. It’s the one constant I’ve had for 7 years and it’s seen me through all sorts of events. Once in a while, it’s just good to step back and take a breather though. What’s that saying?
’If you love something set it free. If it comes back it’s yours. If not, it was never meant to be.’
Or something like that.
I’ve been holed up at a home a LOT lately and so my joys stem from my everyday mundane, just the way I like it. Here are a few of the things that bring me joy:
一. My funny pup. The other morning, I popped into the kitchen to brew another cup of coffee to fuel my email session and Milo had somehow managed to sneak ALL of his soft toys and his entire bed out into the garden! This dog just loves the great outdoors and he’s bloody determined to enjoy the view from his bed with his chicken toy tucked under his arm. A laundry session later… he went on to do the same thing the following day.
二. Sweet, encouraging notes to me, left by my love.
三. My gallery wall! It’s really starting to come along and I couldn’t be happier.
四. Finding a pair of unopened earphones (the free ones that came with my Google Pixel) in my drawer. My old ones were completely dying on me and I could only hear out of the left ear, so it was perfect timing.
五. Drives to the lake, listening to Anna and Lily’s podcast, At Home With.
六. Planning ahead to AW17 at Honey + Chai. (It looks dreamy!)
七. Watching the entirety of Netflix’s Friends from College in one sitting. Highly recommended.
八. Sitting on the bench by the lake and watching on as mother goose and mother duck tend to their little ones. The tiny goslings and ducklings were so tiny and cute a few weeks ago and they’re all already making such progress!
九. Grape soda. Brought to me in bed with ice. Honestly, what did I do to deserve this guy?! Seven years’ wait was so worth it. So so worth it.
十. Absentmindedly browsing our dream apartments in Hong Kong.
What’re some of your petite joys lately?
