a little wind.

i keep thinking about those words spilled by steinbeck --

change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.


our treehouse is ours for only a short while more, and i am nostalgic for these treehouse days, even as i live them still.

we are giddy for new days, new ships. even so, it's hard to close a chapter you are still happy inside.


  1. "it's hard to close a chapter you are still happy inside" - what a perfect line, alexa, and one that resonates with me. my love and I recently said goodbye to our little apartment in london, our hearts beckoned by travel and adventure, and cities new, but oh, it was hard to leave. we cried the whole way to our new digs...! wishing you many more happy memories in your last weeks in the treehouse; excited to see what is in store for you!

  2. Your treehouse chapter is such a sweet one. So many memories made, milestones met, and mountains climbed. So excited for you to begin this next chapter but knowing how important the treehouse chapter has been to you. XOXO
