The smell of my mum's cooking - I don't know what it is with this, it just reminds me of home. There is nothing I love more than when it's Christmas time and mum has a mixing bowl full of glazed cherries, rum and fruit soaking on the counter. That smell is honestly Christmas to me.
Writing - I love setting up my laptop, typing up articles and all things pen and paper. I have chosen the right profession for me I think, sometimes I doubt my writing abilities, but I enjoy it so much. If I could write a blog for a career I would.
Getting Mail - Letters, packages and presents. Checking the letterbox and finding a little envelope addressed to you, is exciting. I wish we all still wrote letters now. I have so many nice writing sets, and I think hand writing letters is so personal.
Mornings - I love waking up to a fresh start, not knowing what the day will hold.
Haircuts - The freshness to a haircut is something you can't describe. You feel like a new person with just one little snip.
Space - My personal space. Spending time with myself, doing things that I love to do. Just sitting, thinking and being alone. It's nice.
Stationery - Call me a geek if you wish, but this gal loves the ol' stationery. I do, I really do. Buying decorative sticky tape, jute string, writing sets, notepads and moleskins is my thang. Maybe when I become a journalist, I can blame my obsession on my need for 'writing materials' ha.
There are so many other things that I could add to this list, and I'm sure I will think of 100 more as I read this post later, however, these are the things that spring to my mind when I think of things that I love that may be simple, but bring joy to my life in a nice little way. It's strange, these things are mostly priceless, 'things' that don't cost much, but mean a lot. x
*I also really love the picture seen above, it is just beautiful. I do however, want to dunk those biscuits into a nice cup of coffee - see! it must be love.
