Content. Satisfaction. Predeliction.





"....Few days went by without some kind of get-together. It was unthinkable that a week would pass without discussing life, love and the universe, in depth, with a variety of people. Friendship was something honoured and prized, almost above anything else, and forming new acquaintances a gift to be encouraged and nurtured."

"I think of how I love this place, this country.......I smelt the salt in the air.....and thought: I am home."

Paula Constant, Slow Journey South



Love my home. Australia, home.

That first quotation is so so beautiful. I really would love to visit Australia one day. Plus the journey is super long, so it really would be an adventure in itself. Hope you're having a gorgeous day dear :)

And yes, I love that first quote. In context it relates to the Aussie culture, but generally applies to everyone and anyone.
