Finally back down under and all I can say is that winter is as welcoming as I have always remembered it to be. Sure, it rained upon arrival and for the next couple of days but the skies cleared and we were blessed with a sunny weekend where I could put the straw hat to good use and take my favourite new For Love & Lemons cosmic tiered lace dress
for a spin. We headed down south and of course the trip was a fruitful one (any trip spent with the family is always close to my heart) for we found this orchard that was bare but still beautiful. The place also reminded me a lot of Christmas and made me feel fuzzy inside.
Truthfully I didn’t realise how much I missed Perth until I was back in my room making snow angels on the fur rugs that sit next to my bed, only to have my brother barge in and raise an eyebrow. I know it is a great privilege to be hopping on and off a plane every now and then, and chasing the sunsets in every country I visit, but there is nothing quite like having your parents kiss you goodnight every evening instead of sending emoji replies to a group chat two thousand miles away.
I will be off again in a few days only to return many months later, so for now I will embrace the present and feel grateful. Oh how nice it is to be back…
