I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

This is how I would want my home to be set. A candle lit on a windowsill where the rain is always falling. I want to live in that kind of peace. 

Just looking at this gif and reading these comments somewhat calms me
