Remember Rome?

Dear Mr.A,

Remember our trip to Rome two years ago? We celebrated our second anniversary & what a perfectly memorable trip that was. Those awe-inspiring sights, long strolls on cobbled streets, that pretty little bed-and-breakfast, fantastic food… everything! Today we just doubled that number, isn’t it hard to grasp how time simply flies? Here’s wishing you a Happy 4th Anniversary, my love.  You are by far the best thing that ever could have happened to me.

Forever yours,

B.

Love and music

‘Love and music last forever’

Sometimes a little thing that might be of no value to anybody else takes a special place in one’s heart. That’s the story of this postcard. A couple of years ago, I was living in Melbourne, that beautiful, vibrant city and enjoying every minute of it. There were many open markets around the city that my husband and I loved to frequent. That day the air was full of lively music floating across the market, with colorful wares on display. Great food, refreshing drinks, quirky nick-nacks, lilting guitar strums. Walking hand-in-hand with him, I was telling myself ‘our life is good’. The postcard was one of many free pick-me-ups at a stall, it was probably an ad for a concert. When I saw it, it kinda summarized the whole feeling of the day for me & I promptly took one home. Then last year I found it in a box after we moved to Stockholm. It still felt special so I gave it a place on a shelf. One winter evening, we had friends over and were having a good time with music in candlelight when I suddenly caught sight of smoke – the postcard had fallen face-down onto a candle and was losing a corner to the flame! Thankfully it was saved, and now it is safely encased in a frame, hanging on a wall in my brand new home, always reminding me of the good times spent in two different, but equally beautiful cities.
