AMERICA NOTES | part two

This was New York. 

It was a place that I didn't expect to love at all, but each day that we wandered I fell in love over and over again. It was a place that I expected to take energy away from me with all its hustle and bustle, but instead it gave more and more. It was a place that I would go back to in a heartbeat.

There is something special there. I don't know if its in the food, the thousands of delicious options lining every street patiently waiting for you to come and enjoy. Maybe its in the character of the buildings, beams and stones who have seen billions of faces pass by them and given love. Or maybe its in the parks; unexpected havens of natural love where you can breathe in smells of the earth between the pounded pavement. Or its the people, the wonderful people. So many beautiful hearts racing to and from all day from dawn until dusk, and long after. 

The City is love, an unexpected love. 
A place that I thought would take, but it only gave.

Thankyou NY

AMERICA NOTES | part one

This was Iowa. We began our travels, excited in anticipation of the six weeks of adventure ahead of us. It was spent with close friends and the friends that are more like family. We breathed in air that felt more clean than ever before. We found rivers lined by the most tall and beautiful leaves with lucious leaves that we're beginning to dry out with the end of summers heat. We laughed nightly over meals shared and games played before heading to bed with no expectation of what tomorrow might bring other than more joy in experiencing what life had for us in that moment. 

Iowa was beautiful. I am desperate to not forget any moment of that time.

A few dreamy interiors that I have been drooling over on pinterest of late. I can't wait to finally have a place of my own with the freedom to change a space however I like. Renting is super fun, and I don't have the funds right now. But if anyone has a house they'd like to donate to me for free id love to take it off of your generous hands….please?

How are you all today? My day has involved resting, a cosy home made breakfast with my house mate and her man, and a spot of baking. I have to work tonight (joy) so I'm trying to recharge as much as I can before I go. I had a small vein operation on thursday also so I'm hoping that I can stand long enough at work to be helpful. We shall see how that goes!

It is raining here in Adelaide, and it is lovely.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening!
