a book to get lost in. a chunky knit blanket. a new pie recipe. flickering candlelight. a hot, hot bath. pretty papers and stamps for love notes. bright roses. a bowl of mandarins. documentaries. fluffy white bath towels, freshly washed in lavender. friday afternoons. fog dancing in the bare branches. devotchka on repeat. a book of mary oliver's poetry, for the train, for the post office wait, for while the laundry spins. strong black coffee with a kiss of brown sugar and molasses. much hygge.
