Feeding the Soul

Tonight I'm curled up in bed with a little head cold. It has been another crazy full week, and to be honest it was a bit of a hard week. Over the last few days I was just feeling a big weighed down by life.  I hadn't felt inspired at all, and was getting so bored of all my tests and assessments at school. All I wanted to do was pull my blankets over my head and watch girly movies. Life was just getting to me.

So this is what I did:

I took myself to Jellystone, my favourite cafe where I ordered my favourite breakfast.

I set some goals. I've decided to run a 10 k marathon. So I spend a lot of my free time running all over town, and clearing my head.

I worked on a cookie order, and invented some new cookie designs.
 These remind me of wild flowers
 I think I had a barbie with this dress once
 I love these lace ones (and I hate to do a sales pitch but all these new designs are now selling at Little Cupcakes in Degraves street!)

I Listened to the Lumineers.......and danced and danced and danced in my bedroom.

But best of all, I took a small trip to the country to a private night market. One of my best friends and I made a little road trip out to this tiny market in a tiny town and it was just bliss. I think I turned to my friend about twenty times during the night to say "I'm just soooooo happy."

Sometimes living in the city can be a little strange after growing up on a big farm and a trip to some clean open air is all you need to heal your soul. So we sat out under the stars eating fresh pizza that was coming out of a wood fired over, while we listened to a few bands play. It was so perfect and lovely to remember that there are so many other people out there who care about feeding their souls with creativity, music and fresh country air. It was the best medicine, and I felt like my old self again.

So now....after such a week I'm sick in bed. The thing is though I feel so happy and filled up with beautiful things again. I think I'm ready to face another week at work and school.

I hope sharing these little lovely things with you make your soul feel a little nourished too. I hope your not feeling too worn out by life or tests at school. I hope wherever you are you are feeling content, and creative, and loved and blessed.

I promise to share a recipe next time too.

For now though this little pastry chef is off to bed.
