Whoa! These last two months have flown by, literally! I feel like I need to try and explain where I have been these last few weeks and the reasons behind my absence, but all I can say is that work has been the main priority for most of June and July and I’ve decided to take a couple of weeks off too. I’m working at a couple of projects I am planning to launch this Autumn which make me very excited, so I somehow found myself neglecting this little space a little bit just to make sure I could make the most of the time I had to work and tick some to-do things off my list!
On other news, we weren’t sure until last week, but we finally decided to go on our first proper holiday after a very long time made of summers spent at home. I can’t really remember the last time I got this excited to see a beach and the sea in my whole life, which makes me realize, as much as I like to type words and codes at my laptop all year round, I definitely need a vacation too. Hopefully a few blog posts will be uploaded in the next couple of weeks, however, if you’d like to follow our adventures in real time, you should totally check us out on Instagram!
Here is a list of highlights from the past two months…
1 :: Remember when I said we got a little red canary a few months ago? Well, things evolved very quickly! We decided to get him a female friend, a bright yellow slim canary named Anna, only a month later, and passed another month, they started building a nest and just a few days later four small blue eggs appeared in there. Even more exciting, only 14 days later I’ve seen the smaller little canary coming to life on a dark dreary day of June. It was one of the best things I’ve seen, following him growing up day after day, from when he was a pink ball of flesh and big black closed eyes, to when he started putting on his first plumage, be fed from his young mum and, the most exciting day, to see him flying out of the nest for the very first time!
2 :: Mexican dinners. They make me very happy! And homemade dinners made of tortillas, guacamole, spicy peppers and beans have become quite a habit in the last couple of months!
3 :: Our day trip to the lake. More about it very soon (we have some pretty nice postcard-like photos), but I’m so glad we decided to take a day off and step outside toward a place we’ve never visited together, and simply enjoy a day of relax and wandering around, enjoying the view.
4 :: Impromptu Cinema nights. We’ve build a few nests made of pillows and soft blankets on the floor a few times this month, add a couple of bowls of homemade freshly popped butter popcorn, a good amount of movies and TV series to catch up on, and you pretty much have a picture of a standard week night at our place!
5 :: Bikini shopping. I can’t believe I’ve been adding this to a happy list as I’ve always thought at bikini shopping as something stressful and enervating, but I’m actually finding myself enjoy it quite a lot. Finding the perfect bikini for my body type is more a challenge than everything else, and it’s always been, but I’m so glad high waisted bikini has been invented… really!
What’s on your happy list this month? x
