familiarity + warmth

April 17, 2017 , , , , , ,

I have had this pullover hoodie since I was 15 and I’m now 36 years old. It comes halfway up my belly, which is hilarious in itself as I barely skim 5 feet. For months I have been telling myself that I need to by a new “comfy slouch-around-the-house” hoodie for the cooler Autumn season, but haven’t.

And it’s because I love the familiarity of this one, the fraying, the worn arms, the smell of it, even freshly washed, smells of comfort and safety. And as much as I love growth and change, innovation and creativity, there are just some things that should be familiar and imbued with warmth. Somehow MORE warm and comforting, even through the edges become MORE frayed, and even MORE haphazardly sewn up!
