this is home

To wash your hair, apply your makeup and put on clothes that are well-scented with incense. Even if you’re somewhere where no one special will see you, you still feel a heady sense of pleasure inside. 

-- Sei Shōnagon, The Pillow Book

this is home, now.

it's been six months since we moved in to this place. little by little, things are falling into place. building a home that i look forward to go back to at the end of the day, one i'd spent the whole weekend lounging in my sleepwear - wasn't a few weeks affair (i am sort of convinced it'll take years, but that's okay.) every now & then we'd have this idea in our heads, of what we'd like to add. we moved in to an empty space. one with its own charisma but much work is still needed. but now every corner and nooks scream our names. memories are made. we had our high ups and terrible downs but there's no one else i'd rather spend this adventure with <3

that picture on the wall - we bought it a few months ago & it's finally hung this month. it has almost all the landmarks of the world in one view, kinda curious, imaginary.

p.s i hope everyone's been well. x
