A few months ago I started setting my alarm for 5am every morning. I’d get up, read a little, drink a coffee, and then take our sweet dog Em for a walk to watch the sunrise- all before starting work at 8am. I did this based on the notion floating around that getting up early is the key to happiness- and I did experience a lot of happiness. I would wake up excited for a mug of coffee and even more excited to see what the sunrise would look like that day. Each morning on my walk through the country roads, I would cross paths with an old man wearing a fluorescent safety vest. He’d say good morning, pet Em, make the same joke about taking her home with him and then carry on. One morning when we crossed paths he had something for me- a fluorescent safety vest.
“There!” he said, satisfied with himself after adjusting it on my shoulders. “Now you’ll be safe.” I’m just not sure if that kind of sweetness exists in the regular hours of the day.
Happy Sunday! Enjoy a little roundup of clickables:
– An Instagram account you didn’t know you needed to follow.
– A quote on the lasting effects of love.
– An article for creatives appropriately titled, You Don’t Get to Decide What’s Good.
“I do not know the weight of time or the texture of happiness. But even still I am grateful because this year I have learned that loving is brave, and being loved is even braver.” – Natalie Wise
Top Left: Did the rest of the world know that this is what Disneyland looks like at night? I’ve been so drawn to magicality (like reality, but where magical things exist) lately. As a kid my interest in going to Disneyland wasn’t too serious but now, as a 22 year old, I find myself itching to stand in front of the castle with mouse ears on my head.
Top Right: It’s no secret that Instagram is my favourite little space (aside from this one, of course;) and I’m constantly screen shotting bits of inspiration from different accounts I find. The other night while on a late night inspo-hunt I came across this: miniature bear rugs! Ah, how I love novelty collections.
Bottom Left: I want to tell you that the significance of this little picture is simply that I now use eggnog in my coffee instead of milk because I am oozing Christmas spirit (true). But I have a teeny confession. I took this picture last Monday. I rimmed a coffee cup in sprinkles the day before I was anticipating great news. This picture was going to be used to announce said good news. I pre-celebrated. The news I was anticipating didn’t come. #tragic
Bottom Right: I love this artist’s scandalous work on the shopping bags for Kara Ross NY!
PS: a cover I had no idea existed (and love!),
the truth about love and a list of mountainous excitement happening this winter if you happen to
live near the Canadian rockies like me. 🙂
Happy Thursday! xo
I had the kind of weekend I haven’t had in years. I stayed in Friday and Saturday night, I did crafts and I baked muffins, my mum and I ate pizza for dinner (twice!), I organized my bedroom, I did … Continue reading →
Woke up this morning with a runny nose, a cranky attitude, an irritating and poorly worded note on my car (RE: my parking..) and not enough time to get to work without being late. So in the spirit of positivity, I’m sitting here drinking … Continue reading →
