If the day appear dark, fight it with colour.
Yesterday - 27th October- was my birthday and it was a beautiful bright day. The sun was shining strongly and everything looked like made out of gold and copper. I received letters from Spain that made me cry of happiness and, perhaps, a little bit of melancholy too. I also received a couple of wonderful flower brunches that made my day so much more ornamental. Flowers make me happy... simple as that. I even got a couple of presents! Something I'm not used to anymore.
So I basically spend the day enjoying the red and orange vibes and arranging my bouquets with my presents and more autumn stuff I found around. I have fun arranging things hahaha It is a hobby of mine. I also talked a lot on the phone with my beloved ones that are far away.
We also made two tea parties. One took place in the garden and it was private, just for Manfred and me...well, the cat who lives in our garden was there too.
The second tea party was later, inside the house because it was already cold. I didn't make photos but the room was arranged again with all the autumn decoration. My dear friend Fabia came with her nice boyfriend and they surprise me with a delicious brownie cake - DELICIOUS!! -
The picture below shows the piece we left for dinner dessert. We almost left nothing because it was sooo difficult to stop eating it!!
To end up a birthday properly there must be a Birthday Queen Dinner. I chose to have homemade burgers and homemade french fries. Of course, it is not only about a burger but about The Perfect Burger with everything you desire inside... Yes, I am perverted!
Here you can see all the delicious components of our burgers.
It was just a great day. Exactly how it is supposed to be: special and making you feel shiny and beloved. That's how I felt: beloved, overall. This is the important thing and I am forever grateful to my boyfriend, my friends, my family.... and to life for being so beautiful.
Kisses, dear readers!
At the end of the last August, Manfred and I had to spend some time in Frankfurt. Manfred was working a lot but we could combine it with nice walks through the city. Manfred has told me often that when he was a student in Frankfurt he discovered this little Chinese park which became his favourite spot to spend hours reading or relaxing. He was exited to share this space with me.
When we entered the park I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. And I'm not the only one, of course. Lots of people go to the park to hang around or eat lunch. Every detail makes you think of China, even the rubbish cans are particular. I got a bit obsessed with making photos around and we behaved like tourists -something that I always try to avoid, but in this case it was funny. The combination of the fluffy plants with the dark red of the robust building, the sound of a little water fall, the birds playing around... it all was so peaceful. This place is a big contrast to the urban activity of a big business city like Frankfurt; I understand perfectly why Manfred came here so often.
Lately I'm feeling like I am loosing my self and forgetting who I am. Or said in another way: feeling empty. I watch my last posts and I feel these pictures don't represent who I am. I don't even write much anymore! I wonder what is happening to me. I was so concern to communicate my thoughts and now....nothing comes out of me. So I see this last two outfits that I made photos from and I don't see my authentic personality in them. I mean, I like to dress up with special items I collected along my life and I enjoy it but I'm not this girl everyday. I am not wearing fancy hats neither jewellery as a daily habit.
So, feeling like this, weird in my body and in my behaviour I felt like making other kind of photos. Photos which connect with me, photos that truly represent me. My boyfriend made them and he really manage to catch my body and face expression. The green, my boots, sunlight on my skin..... it all made me feel better. It all reminded me who I am. This photos are more me than any others.
A song that represent my soul below the pictures. Specially chosen version.
