The best part of each and every day





The best part of each and every day here is tea time. The time of day when the world stops and everyone comes together, under the shade for tato dudh chiya.

I remember the first time I went to India, I hated the stuff. I thought it was ridiculously// unnaturally sweet, but now, it is something I crave.

I believe in the quiet moments.

I believe the quiet moments are when Nepal seems the most real. Because, most days, all this still seems like a dream.

My body these days is incredibly happy. Stretched out from all the yoga, strong from the trail runs in the heat or monsoon, full from all the chiya and dal bhat, and covered from head to toe in mehndi.

to the beach we go. . .

tt, juju, & i are off to the beach for the weekend.

the seven hour ride will be filled with mini sewing projects, photo editing and lots of reading {and a good book on tape}. i’ve got lots of new things to share, but it will have to wait until next time!

here’s to the last happy days of summer before the real madness begins all over again:

+ a new song to love

+ a new blog to love

+ a new quote to love:

“it’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

“an adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. an inconvenience is an adventure wrongly considered.”

– g. k. chesterton

this was my first of many incredible sunrises and sunsets in indo.

i’ve been thinking a lot these days about why i am attracted to what i am and what i want out of this life. i know deep down that i was born to wander, take my time, and never take for granted the little joys in life.
