Today, was a wonderfully slow Sunday filled with an afternoon at the park, movies in bed with Dauphine and sunset views of the city with Jack. Now, I am ready for an evening reading a novel and writing poetry & prose.
Name a better duo... I’ll wait
I woke up this morning with a lot of love and support for my recent blog post “Hello Old Friends” and my heart is filled with so much gratitude for the remarkable humans I have in my life. Today is going to be a great day!
Traveling always puts my life back into perspective because I actually have the time to hear my own thoughts and I’ve realized I’m going to grow in a way I’ve never grown before and I’m excited for this journey. 📷 @strutz
Coming home after traveling to new cities & countries is always a bittersweet feeling, but I’m grateful for the experience and the marvelous memories. I am also ready to kick this sinus infection in a familiar place and a cozy bed.
here is to the start of your twenty-fifth year around the sun my love ♥️ I love you & I look forward to another year of adventures, laughter, love & growth with you.
I have been spending a fair amount of time with myself and my thoughts, and as I’ve stated before, I’m slowly getting to know myself more and more because I’m taking the time and putting in the work. It’s not easy—oftentimes it’s difficult, frustrating and heavy, but when you sort through everything, create a plan and allow time to pass, it gets easier... even lighter.
I feel like we use the excuses of life to push this type of work off and don’t deal with things or displace the blame. Maybe it’s out fear of what you’ll discover or the fear of not having the strength or courage to handle it. If that’s the case, know that you’re not alone. I am here if you need a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen or a safe space to escape. I am here to offer love, support & compassion because the journey to self is a tricky one, and no one said it had to be done alone.
I have a thing for the doors of Cadaqués
when he develops a cold & then gives it to you, so you spend most of the afternoon laying in bed taking naps and watching movies. at least we got to explore lots yesterday and this morning, and have another day and a half here!
This afternoon, Jack and I explored the town of Cadaqués & reveled at the beauty of the white buildings against the bright blue Mediterranean Sea.
Jack came to life in Fès & it was truly beautiful to witness ♥️ I can’t wait to look through the rolls of film upon our return at the end of the week.
Mosaics around the Médina in Fès
I am grateful for the opportunity to come to Fès and learn about the culture and history. I am grateful for the phenomenal Riad we have chosen to stay in and the owners who make us feel like we are at home. I am grateful for a partner who is always down to trek across the globe with me. My life is good, and today was a great day ♥️
We also visited a tannery where leather goods are made & I purchased a couple pairs of beautiful Moroccan slippers.
Today, we took a tour around the Médina & boy oh boy were we blown away.
Upon landing in Fès, we immediately treated ourselves to a traditional Hammam spa treatment and massage. The glow is r e a l & self-love is vital ✨
The light shone beautifully through the stained glass windows at Sagrada Família this afternoon.
Did you know George Lucas found inspiration for Darth Vader & Stormstroopers from the chimneys that sit atop La Pedrera - Casa Milà? Dreams achieved.
