+ winter’s colour palette of blues and greys: day’s cerulean skies followed by the black shroud of night

+ a Saturday bike date hugging the river, under cloud-flecked skies

+ Friday night fish tacos with my sister (photo booth pictures, included) and the impromptu sleepover that succeeded it

+ finally alighting upon the perfect headline at work

+ reading this haunting novella on the tube

+ the January light, blue, fragile

+ swapping duck down for knee-length wool one day this week; feeling transformed from human sleeping bag to ballet dancer

+ a fridge full of extra-strong cheese (thanks mama!)

+ a spontaneous dinner date with the guy I love

+ on Saturdays I volunteer with a tutoring group housed in a church, and this morning the slate steps were littered with violet confetti – remnants of a Friday winter wedding – and the thought of it made me smile

+ the fact that this list could quite easily be three, five, ten times as long

    This is such a lovely series, just what you need in January 🙂 Your photos are so beautiful too! Thanks for sharing your bright spots 🙂

  • Beautiful photographs (so, do you carry your camera about all the time? These aren’t iPhone pictures are they? I need to get in the habit of using my actual camera more often). And I love the thought of the church steps too 🙂

      They are iPhone pictures – it’s a surprisingly good camera! I’m trying to snap photos on it more often, it’s so nice to have a record of the days. 🙂 x

  • Those shots from the photo booth are so freakin’ adorable. You and your sis look so alike! Sounds like a wonderful week, and the river cycle date is going straight to the top of my list of things to do when the weather perks up a bit more 🙂 x

      Thanks T, I feel like we’re looking more & more alike as we get older. Do you & your sister look alike? Totally recommend the bike date! x
