This morning, as usual, I woke up to an overfriendly kitty who likes to sit on people’s backs and a sweet boy who is kind enough to oblige her (not to mention the second kitty and the puppa, awfully fond of photobombing). It’s the little things, like these pictures, that fill my heart with gratitude and happiness.
I always have a lovely time when we are out treasure hunting, or having breakfast at a nice cafe, or seeing a movie, but often it’s these silly, cute, totally unplanned moments at home that are the ones to catch me unawares and stop me in my tracks. When we’re in our PJs, surrounded by piles of unfolded clean laundry and sipping our morning coffee. Or when we’re up late at night listening to records, sharing a bag of a licorice and just feeling totally content to be in each other’s company… It’s then, at those perfectly ordinary but truly beautiful times, that I am reminded of how good we really have it. And though we may be a long way off fulfilling our dreams and we may be at just the beginning of our journey, I realise we already have everything we need. In these tiny, joyful moments we are already living our happily ever after.
I would not trade the love in this humble little house for anything in the world.
