This is why autumn is my favorite season.
Just casually driving past FIVE helicopters HASHTAGMERICA.
This is Yellow Springs, charmful small-town USA.
“And one day the sun will come out and you might not even notice straight away it’ll be that faint and then you’ll catch yourself thinking about something or someone who has no connection with the past. Someone who is only yours and you’ll realise that this is where your life is.” (Brooklyn Movie)
I freakin’ LOVE this candy! One for me, one for Lavanya!
Today we’re driving up to Ohio for Thanksgiving. It will be my very first Thanksgiving. I’m so excited and of course, very thankful. Autumn has been beautiful here! Now, I am looking forward to experiencing some American winter winter and soon, a sure-to-be beaut NZ summer. I say bring on the road trips and the Kapiti ice-creams! Yeah!
My very first breakfast in bed! Hashtagspoilt.
Soroosh and I had the pleasure and blessing of hosting the Bahai 19 Day Feast at his Parents’ house. It was a wonderful night. I will always remember it. Speaking of Bahai, I recommend you see the video below if you’re interested in learning more about my faith:
…look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love. -Zooey Deschanel
I dedicate this list to you. I’m sorry for the whinging and the grumbles. I really am happy and grateful…it’s just so easy to be open with you.
1.Working limbs to walk, run, cycle and explore.
2.Unexpected friends. Like Laura from Belgium who I met through blogging. who came and stayed with me in Japan and who just happens to be blogging about it NOW.
3.My auntie Pouneh – of course for having me here but also for her many entertaining stories, cycling advice and organic salads!
4.Coffee. I mean come on. Ican’teven without it.
5.Art. Art and creative people. Literature, music, Sundance! Thank you for making me feel all sorts of feels.
6.My mama, who keeps messaging me to be careful not to get a cold? And that I’m her little girl and very pretty. Oh my heart. My world. Thank you.
7.Getting paid to travel. Okay so it’s not much (hint hint Savvy Tokyo) but it’s seriously a dream come true. I did it. I blogged for 730 days in a row, annoyed the hell out of you all and eventually landed myself a teeny tiny writing role. Have you read my latest work? You can HERE, HERE and HERE. Cheers and kampai to (fingers-crossed/touch-wood) many more.
