Roads of France

Will I ever finish posting the pics from our trip to France that we did more than ONE year ago?! Waiting for a signal from the universe to answer that question! hahaha So maybe I still have two or three posts to write about…oh, I was already forgetting about the food post that I want to write as well, so maybe there are still four :O So maybe until the end of this year I’ll be able to finish them…we didn’t travel this year, but could you imagine how long it would take to write about that if we did?! There is always a positive side of everything…hahaha

Gosh, I don’t even remember the last time I was around here to share something with you guys, I know that it’s been probably almost a month, and I’m not proud of it…I always say to myself that I want to write more posts, but in the end that doesn’t happen. So here I am again trying to make this happen! I’m currently sitting at my dinning table and looking outside the window, and for my surprise, it’s snowing! I think this is the first time that I’m actually seeing snow in March since I’ve been here…..I am so ready for Spring, but this winter does not want to go away! haha and baby, it’s cold outside! Several days ago, it felt like -20 degrees celsius, I didn’t want to leave the apartment! haha So of course I’m reminiscing this time last year, I was dreaming of our trip to France that happened in the end of March….sun in the sky, nice warm feeling, french language, breathtaking views and oh, the baguettes! People can tell you about the baguettes, or you can read about how it’s good, but you can only fall in love with it after you have eaten it in France! Believe me, I have bought baguettes here in Berlin where it says, made like the ones in France, but friends, that ain’t no french baguette, and will never be! hahahahaha

Hello you, that’s right I am talking to you, the person that is reading this post, I’m happy you are here, enjoying this experience with me 🙂 This is the first time that I’m writing a post from bed….caught a nasty cold this week, so in bed I shall stay! Can’t believe we are already in the middle of November, I am so excited for Christmas!!! (who’s with me?!). Yesterday I couldn’t help myself and started listening to Dean Martin’s and Bing Crosby’s Christmas albums on Spotify, oh how I’m dreaming of a white Christmas! Even though I haven’t seen one since we arrived in Berlin in 2015….but hope never dies! hahaha

I still have a few posts to right about our trip to France, and I hope that I will finish until the end of the year, ha! This time, I wanted to share a few pics from the city of Nîmes. Do you remember the posts that I wrote about the city of Arles?! You can find them here and here. The day that we visited Arles, we also visited Nîmes, the cities are so close, and it was already on our list, and since we stayed in France for seven days, we wanted to make the most out of it 😀

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.

The Beginning of our Adventures in France

Happy 1st of August, you guys!

Can’t believe how fast this year is going, is it crazy to think that there is just four months until Christmas?! 😮 Is it possible to slow down time somehow?!

Sorry for the last week’s silence around here, it was a crazy week! The renovation in our apartment is finally done…YAY!!! So last week we painted our bedroom and put some things in order around here, also, I did a ultimate cleaning around here, there was so much dust in here after the construction worker sanded practically every wall…that kind of dust that goes into the tiniest little space…I spent two days just to clean the entire kitchen, cleaned every cabinet and drawer, and had to scrub the floors to get every spot of paint out….but it was worth it, now my kitchen is flawless!!! We still have a lot of things we want to do around here, buy some furniture, paint the living room and maybe the entrance hall…we were also thinking of putting a little colour in the kitchen as well…but now I’m changing my mind about that, I think that I want to put a lot of plants and some nice pictures there, but I still don’t know…let’s see how it will turn out. So in the end, it will still take some time to share the pictures around here…baby steps, you guys 🙂

Besides that, I want to finally share the story and pictures from our little trip to France, I was totally procrastinating this post, we uploaded the pictures from the camera a while a go, truth is, I was feeling a little bit lazy to write all about it, since there is so many details and things that I want to talk about….if I knew you (reader), we would probably spend days talking about it…hahaha
