good morning all, happy wednesday! it’s great to be back stateside and i’m readjusting to my little world. the time change woke me good and early to catch a sunrise and spend some time on the beach playing around and reconnecting with home.
fortunately lots of the stash was waiting when i arrived but my apartment looks like a warehouse of boxes and bubble that’s been transplanted from our paris apartment to miami. truth is the french post office was a great way to ship and i recommend it if you’re sending boxes back when you go. they just can’t be over 50 kilos (whatever that is, it’s a lot) or over 2 meters in size over all). you can get boxes and bubble at bhv in paris. anyway the phone is already chirping and ringing and the inbox is downright mad but i wanted to say hello and thank you for being there throughout the trip. i didn’t get a chance to comment back but it was so much fun to have you with me! needless to say i brought stuff for you so send out as tokens, and i have NOT forgotten about the last batch i was supposed to ship either! it was just that things got crazy. so if you sent me your addy a couple months back and didn’t receive anything yet, you will!
till then it will be unpacking like crazy, i’m sure the it will look like an episode of hoarders in here soon, but it’s my french feast
the phone is relentless so i have about 30 seconds and wanted to pass along something that has been a fascinating new change. i came home to a boyfriend who cut his long hair, dropped 17 pounds and went from eating a despicable diet to fresh juicing. it’s not the kind we do at home, it would be impossible to have this array of ingredients and combinations, not to mention it’s cold pressed. (apparently the shiz)! i fell right into the cult and in two days we’re having these delicious drinks whenever we’re hungry. it’s a thrill to see such a transformation and joie de vivre in him that i couldn’t help but jump on board. we can’t get enough of them, and when we do eat it’s no longer about heavy meals and desserts. so refreshing and an incredible shift for both of us! check out the menu on the link. they ship anywhere in the us.
ok, well duty calls, have a beautiful day!
good morning darling friends! i hope you had a fantastic holiday. it’s absolutely silent here so i have a rare and treasured moment to come by and say hello. as usual the days are moving at the speed of light and trying to keep up is a full time job. i finally have the next few to myself and am looking forward to spending time with my computer which has been severely neglected!
before hitting the inbox i wanted to share a little of what’s going on. it’s been house hunters around here trying to find a new place asap as the construction is amping up outside my window. yesterday we saw what’s probably my favorite so far (above). the view is heaven but the apartment is beyond a fixer upper. i got spoiled having everything brand spanking new. i’ll have to be an on the fly renovation on the wayyyy down low, changing faucets, bath stuff, even kitchen countertops. the hardest part’s been disconnecting from my current apartment. maybe it’s jumping into the unknown vs the comfort of familiarity. this should be an adventure so i have to get into it but i’m watching myself resist!
but i do believe we get what we need, even messages. i found this on pinterest and it’s my mantra for the day. even though i’m not sure what it says, it so doesn’t matter since there’s plenty of clearing and closing to be done. hope you have a great day break through anything holding you back!
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; one life must die before we can enter another.
