little place


I can't believe I still haven't shown you guys my room yet... I guess part of me wanted to save it for when I bought a DSLR but I really liked how these photos turned out so I thought today would be perfect. This is my room (well, one side of it). It's small, cosy, charming and perfect. It's probably my favourite place in the world. It's always there... full of precious things, quiet time for reading, writing and prayers, getting dressed up and being happy and sad. Every night I have a hot chamomile tea with honey and sit it on my bedside table, pull out my diary and write about the good and bad happenings of the day. Lately, I've also improved my relationship with God. I've begun to pray every night like I used to and I'm already seeing a difference in my life. I feel supported and not as helpless. As if my problems can truly be solved in the end.

I've also been going through old letters from pen pals, school friends and my Mum. It's the best way to reminisce; reliving old memories and such.
I hope you have a nice week...
P.S: This song is wonderful...

Such a gorgeous room you have Maria! I like quaint bedrooms best <3

That's lovely how you have made time to pray every night. I really should get back into the calming routine.

Also, I bought a gorgeous card the other week whilst on holiday, I cannot wait to send it to you (which can be added to your pile of letters. I love re reading mine too)

I love everything that's hanging from your wall. Bedrooms are so interesting to look at because they reflect personality and every bedroom is so different. I've been thinking about photographing my room for my blog but I need to add a couple of finishing touches since I've only had it for a couple of months. xx
