I had a lovely Christmas day at my parents’ house today. Lunch and afternoon went by smoothly and so pleasantly. I almost could not believe it!

Just the right amount of delicious food, the four of us all getting along and never in tension-inducing subject matters, good wine, lovely chats with relatives over Whatsapp… Oh gosh, so perfect.

I am SO grateful for days like these. 

I wish I could save the memory and flavor of them so that my Soul can treasure and never, ever forget living them.

I’d like these days, especially the ones with my family, to be the things my Soul will get to keep and look back to because they are the best ones.

The ones that fill your heart with joy and hope.
