The manfriend and I are in Melbourne at the moment. Our trip has been a whirlwind of eating and photo-taking and visiting family and friends and penguins, and I’m loving every minute. We’ll be back before you know it, though – with new stories and photos and recipes and dreams to share. In the meantime, I’m sending the best of luck and some fieldnotes for the new year:
Celebrate with abandon.
Work hard. Be kind.
Apply sunscreen mindfully.
Write love letters on hotel stationery.
Wear bright colours. (Pink! Purple!)
Give bear hugs.
Call your mother.
Be beautiful and fascinating and reckless.
Have a lovely 2014, everyone.
