Let’s start a book club !

Reading is dreaming with eyes wide open

Views during quarantine

With this Covid-19 pandemic, and the quarantine shenanigans, I’ve started reading regularly again. I mean, I had to find some activities to pass the time, and this is one of them.

I had forgotten how much I liked reading… it’s been a delight. Especially while seating outside, and soaking some sun, no matter the temperatures.

But now that things have kinda come back to a sort of new normal, I have those “busy weeks” piling up and there’s days on end when I don’t find the time for a read. Which actually upsets me.

But I also know that if I set a small goal, like a book club, to share my reads with you every month or so, then it can totally motivate me to find the time for it : which is exactly what I need, and which is why I’ve decided to do this.

Okay, so here’s how it’s gonna work. I give you a book to read and basically a month to finish it. Then I write a small review, and onto the next one ! Exciting uh ? Yes !

So this week we’re starting off with one of my favorite modern day writer Rupi Kaur, who just released a new book made of poems that she named “Home Body”. I just got it digitally, and can’t wait to sit on the patio later in the day, to enjoy it.

I highly encourage you to do the same thing, see you ! xoxox

We’re here in Heraklion, Crete. On our way to the Rocca a Mare Fortress. We were supposed to reach the light house by sunset, but didn’t manage… it is quite a long road over the sea, about two km on foot. And we had many stops because the views were absolutely fantastic. Next time, we’ll go until the end of it ! #BucketList ✨

Do birds ever fly or are they always on some kind of mission

I want summer to be there already #throwback

Do birds ever fly for fun or are they always on some kind of mission

I have some remaining pictures of my vacation to Crete to share… but WordPress has changed their desktop features, and it’s really annoying now. It took me a while to make a simple post, like I used to. I tried to switch to the “classic” layout, but it has disappeared. Well, old school was much better.

Here we are in Heraklion, on our summer vacay, and as usual the views were breathtaking. Crete is a beautiful island, that we totally fell in love with. It’s a perfect destination for couples. I miss it a lot, and I miss the warmth.

Me always : who ??????????

Last evening in Crete

Me always : who ??????????
But not the last of my pictures… I still have a couple to share 😊

The memories are flashing back, this was one of the most incredible trips I’ve had, and I’m so thankful I got to share it with my love. We truly enjoyed our adventures there, and we wish to come back for more.

I wore my best dress for the last night, in La Chania. What a beautiful little town by the way, so colorful, I loved the pier. Nice little shops as well, of course good food. Our hotel was crazy beautiful as well. We ended in a seafood restaurant, with champagne. It was perfect ! ✨

I love to purchase items… but at what cost

Many places of Crete

I love to purchase items... but at what cost
It’s a melting pot of pictures in this post…

The first bit we’re at the Miramare Resort, in Agios Nikolaos. The second bit we’re visiting Lake Kournas, which was a dreamy place. And for the last, we’re at Kavos Hotel,Β not too far from Chania, and we swung by Seitan Limani for another crazy hike down the hill to get to a paradise beach. Unfortunately, I have no pictures from it since we left our things in the car. But trust me when I say, it’s the most beautiful beach I’ve seen in Crete.
