MOMENTS LIKE THESE

cherry blossom

I've been a little off the radar this week as real life gets in the way sometimes and when those things happen, blogging and social media are at the very bottom of my list. While I'm not really going to go into it, let's just say that it's been a bit of a hideous week.

They say that when life throws you lemons, make lemonade. Well, all I can say that those 'lemons' have made me appreciate the little things too. Whether it's appreciating the pretty Spring blossom (these were taken in Regents Park a week ago), sunny walks, making a cup of tea for your mum, appreciating the fact that your dad can pretty much solve any DIY question, crazy/annoying siblings that make you laugh even in the most stressful situations and friends that just understand unconditionally. A very random post today but hopefully things will be back to normal around here soon!

  13. Those blooms! Pink is my favorite color and no matter how many times I pass by these trees or how many pictures I take of them, I can never get enough! Everything around this time of year feels so pretty, soft, and happy :)

  32. :( I hope everything is well Winnie! Well you can look forward to your winter trip to HK! See if you can sneak in a trip to Seoul as well.

    And dude, cherry blossoms are stunning over there! They're even more pink than the ones I saw in Tokyo.

  33. Thanks Sam! Oh it was a rough couple of weeks but all is well again (some family stuff!) but I am so excited to come back in November. I have the dates! I will let you know yay. Can't wait to see you!


    Cherry blossoms are lovely, lots of different variations here but dude, they cannot compare to anything in Japan?! I so want to sneak a trip to Seoul but my sister is adamant that I should go with her. Total spanner in the works! x
