Hey guys! Here I am again…two weeks in a row, how awesome is that?! hahaha It’s Friday night, and I am at home with cramps while Rafael is at a party, but don’t worry, no losses here, when I’m finished with this post I’m going to do some serious Netflix’n’Chill…hahaha I’ve been really hooked up on Jane the Virgin lately, I’ve spent some time neglecting it because the name didn’t appeal to me enough to try and watch it, but then a few weeks back I didn’t know what to watch and decided to give it a try, if only I known what I’ve been missing, it’s so funny (and sometimes sad, if you are watching the third season) and the characters are so great, especially Rogelio! Love that dude, so funny! Legit telenovela! hahaha Anyway, I’m going off topic here, but I could definitely ramble on a lot more about it!

What I really wanted to share today, are the last pictures that Rafael took of the city of Arles. I don’t think I mentioned this on the first post I did about Arles, but we decided to visit Arles, because Vincent van Gogh lived there from 1888 to 1889, and produced over 300 paintings and drawings during his time there.

Arles – Part I

Can’t believe that August is already slipping away, and with it, so is Summer, at least around here…the last couple of days were really sunny and hot, so it made sense to spend the afternoons at the park with Paco (my dog). Now, the weather has changed completely, it’s raining outside…but I’m definitely looking forward for Autumn and its charming days 🙂 I wanted to write this post last week, but I got lazy…I don’t know why, but I tend to get lazy with my personal stuff, like embroidery, the blog, or any other type of project I have in mind…..I’ve been wanting to start a bullet journal since the beginning of the year, but guess what, we are already in the second semester of the year, and I did nothing! Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty organised with my house hold duties, I have a good routine that keeps everything flowing around here, but with my own stuff, I’m just a big procrastinator…don’t know why.

Anyways, I wanted to share some pics of our second day in France (more about it, here and here). It was raining in the morning, but not too much, if I’m recalling it well, so we decided to drive to the little city of Arles. We decided to go there because we discovered that Van Gogh lived there between the years of 1888 – 1889, and produced a lot of paintings while he was there. But there is definitely a lot more to the city than that, especially because it has a long history and was of considerable importance in the Roman province, therefore, there are a lot of Roman and Romanesque monuments.
