thornandsparrow there are just some moments I wish I could bottle up and keep with me forever... sitting on the cliffs with the husband, basking in sunshine, listening to little swelling waves against the rocks... and for awhile, we don't say anything, we're just enjoying the moment + each other. 7d

thornandsparrow "then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? tell me, if you have understanding.
who determined its measurements? surely you know! or who stretched the line upon it? to what were its foundations fastened? or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" [job 38] "it's a good thing to feel small." -husband.
yes, yes it is.

thornandsparrow a quick + easy stress relief tonic recipe is on the blog this morning! since my recent 3 month struggle with anxiety, I've been making more of a conscious effort to de-stress throughout the day... and this is one thing that I've really loved the last week! it smells amazing, helps clear my thoughts, + looks quite pretty on my desk.
hopes this helps you too! [link in profile]
