Early morning sunshine has medicinal properties for me, I'm certain of it.
Slowly establishing new, positive habits.
The raw, unbridled joy of a new notebook.
Beatrix running away with and hiding my tape measure. Socks. Pens. Hair ties.
Hiding her treats around the house in return.
It's become our favourite game.
She's so smart, she always finds them.
I've only just found the hair tie, hidden inside a shoe. 
Rediscovering Antony and the Johnsons. Anohni's words give me light.
Vanilla everything.
Not allowing myself to be like that hair tie, hidden away for too long. 
Because hiding from the storm clouds means the sunshine would be nothing but a distant memory.



  1. she's so cute!

  2. There truly is nothing better than some early morning sun, it definitely gets the day off to a positive start! Beatrix is so lovely aswell, I love her markings, so unique!

  6. Yay for introducing positive habits, I've been trying to do the same and it's making me feel really accomplished and good! (even if they are small things) The early morning sun always leaves me feeling so hopeful and inspired and ready to try again, to fix all the things that have gone wrong the day before! Also Beatrix is too cute and your writing is always so beautiful!

    1. Small things are often the best things!

  7. She's gorgeous! Totally with you on vanilla everything, by the way <3

  8. Love your writing :) Especially during winter time I need a little dose of early morning sunshine to "feed my happiness" - even quite literally as my vitamin D levels drop quite quickly during the colder and darker months..

    Oh and Beatrix is such a cutie! <3

  9. Beatrix is such an angel! What a cutie <3 I love her markings. I'm really enjoying lighter evenings at the moment and the all around brighter skies! <3 xxx

  11. your words make my heart happy :)
    What's your favourite Antony and the Johnsons song?


    1. Ooh good question, I probably listen to 'Hope There's Someone' and 'Bird Gerhl' the most.
