With one ring on her finger, everything changes.

I’ve deleted this first sentence too many times because I do not know how to put into words how happy I am that you are here, with a ring on her left finger and a wedding coming in the late summer. It has been a privileged to live alongside you, to watch you grow in […]


“it may look like i’m surrounded but i’m surrounded by you” Those lyrics, those words of being surrounded have been traveling around my head on and off for the past week. They find themselves in the tiniest darkest back corners and then make themselves the center point of my main thoughts. There is something in […]

a letter to myself.

I found this post, one I wrote 4 years ago. So I thought I would write a response, to the version of me then. Who didn’t really know just how many mountains she would jump off, or rivers she would sink deep into. Who hadn’t really truly seen what it meant to live a life […]

soft snow flakes

  it snowed on christmas day. winter is here. the wood store is going low. the layers are adding up…5 long-sleeves today and counting.  i am simultaneously loving the cosy evenings and dreaming of the sun-soaked spring days that are coming. r/
