This Wasn’t The First Time We Met

This wasn’t the first time we met, but the first I can remember.

We sat in her pastel print kitchen, inhaling the chocolate fudge cake her mum sets down on the light wooden table. Sunlight bores through the windows, bouncing off the white surfaces and floral trinkets. Her home always felt so much more, well, homely than mine.

To look at us, it’s our difference that are obvious. Her slight frame compared to my broad, tall one. Her dark eyes, skin and hair compared to my blue gaze and pale freckled complexion. Little and large, they called us.

Alone in her small bedroom at the end of the hall, we had weird and wonderful chats that can only stem from a child’s imagination; that only happen when it’s just the two of use.

Those talks, they’ve never stopped. They’re what we’re made of. I wouldn’t be alive without her.

  • Thank god for @hbensonx 💜
  • Sleepy baby sunbathing 💔 (she clawed me across the face earlier, do not let this cuteness fool you)
  • I (mostly) stopped wearing makeup months ago and it’s been a game changer. It sounds stupid, but when I see this in the mirror, it actually feels like my face now, rather than what I look like in between coats of foundation. Plus I get an extra 20 minutes of sleep every morning. Why didn’t I do this sooner?
  • Cancelling your hair appointment and using the money to buy a new lens instead = solid life decision.
  • Here’s my cute chubby face to tell you a couple of things: 1️⃣ I had the best weekend with @kimhigson being the most me I have ever been, watching some incredible live netball and finally seeing Avengers: Endgame (still processing), and 2️⃣ My photos from my dreamy trip to Sweden are all edited and live on my photo account @sophslens_, or you can swipe to see a few. Thanks @mathew_curran for snapping this one ☺️📸
  • Hot chocolate break with @mathew_curran before we hunt down more photo opportunities - and meatballs, obviously. 🇸🇪
  • My mum got me this lady cushion and I LOVE it
  • Gripping, poetic, and consistently lightbulb-inducing as it explores a world where women rise to power, I couldn’t get enough of this book. I haven’t read fiction in years, but this reminded me that I ought to, much more often.
  • From Icelandic winds to sunny Spanish rooftops; quite the climate change, but I’m not complaining ☀️ Swipe to see some of my favourite photos from Malaga so far, or I’ll be posting the full set over at @sophslens_ 📸
