you are, bloom.
Everything is on fire,
but everyone I love is doing beautiful things
and trying to make life worth living,
and I know I don’t have to believe in everything,
but I believe in that.

This couple is the most soothing content I watch these days on YouTube. Their son films them cooking and gardening. Delightfully slow. (And here is there Instagram account.)
Stay until the kids come on. They are so pure. Heart melts.
Be realistic, expect a miracle.
Yep, I am on a minimal guest bed hunt. Turns out the ones I am into are not available in the US. Like this one from Manufaktum. Love the minimal aesthetic of this brand so much.
I have fallen in love with this very minimal expandable guest bed by Bautier. Wish I could get it here in the US.
“Growing up, I never knew a relaxed woman. Successful women? Yes. Productive women? Plenty. Anxious and afraid and apologetic women? Heaps of them. But relaxed women? At-ease women? Women who don’t dissect their days into half hour slots of productivity? Women who prioritize rest and pleasure and play? Women who aren’t afraid to take up space in the world? Women who give themselves unconditional permission to relax? Without guilt? Without apology? Without feeling like they need to earn it? I’m not sure I’ve ever met a woman like that. But I would like to become one.”

This is weird. And I love it. (The Avocado is my all-time favorite)
“Some things can become true merely because we believe in them–that pessimism becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. When modern economists assumed that people are innately selfish, they advocated policies that fostered self-serving behavior. When politicians convinced themselves that politics is a cynical game, that’s exactly what it became.”
― Rutger Bregman

“The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light.’
– James Baldwin
A 10-millionth visitor to the Rijksmuseum of Netherlands was allowed to spend the night at Rembrandt’s painting “Night Watch” with a bottle of wine and dinner. This is everything.
