Last post on my current whereabouts, before I start sharing pictures from Crete !
I originally didn’t want to publish those photos on here, because they’re my boyfriend’s & I summer vacation pics, but I need a little break to work on another project, and in the meantime I don’t want to leave my blog without any content when I know I have some.
The weather in Paris has been absolutely stunning up until now… we’ve entered a period of doom ! It’s been raining every day 😭
But right before that, we’ve had the most incredible sunsets, the sky was on fire most nights. We had red suns setting on the woods. It was insane, and so beautiful ! I captured some moments, when we went for walks in the woods, enjoy 🤗
A little peek into our home ❤️ that I share with my boyfriend.
We live in a wonderful little town, neighboring Paris. We are meters away from the Vincennes Woods, and we have a stunning view on it. I just love the openness into the sky, sunsets here are something else. Every day we get a show !
Even though we love traveling and going away on amazing trips together, there’s nothing quite like coming back home to this peacefulness.
I guess I’m finally ready to talk about what I have…
Been dealing with health issues for the past couple of years, and was not properly diagnosed until recently. The diagnosis was really helpful in a way, because I could begin proper treatment.
Unfortunately it’s a bit late, my body has been in crisis mode since September ’22. At this point for the treatment to kick in, it takes a while. I’ve been home basically since then, you can’t imagine all the things someone can go through dealing with that. It’s like another confinement, with added pain. So that’s great.
For that reason, and because I couldn’t find the necessary ressources for myself online, I decided to tackle on a little finite online project. I’m creating an instagram account I titled @immunediseases.
So I will be sharing anything health, wellness, cooking, fitness, and self-care related there. Because my blog is more for photography, and I don’t want to mix that here. Plus, as I said it’s a finite project, once I babbled on everything I have on this topic, I’ll just leave it be : hopefully by then I will be healed, and able to start working on the actual projects I’ve been dreaming of.
But in the meantime, I’m not gonna sit around and not even share what I’ve learned or experienced through my own issues.
If you are unfortunately like me, living with autoimmune diseases, or know someone etc… go and take a look at my new instagram. I’ll start posting there from next Monday. You can ask me any questions there, regarding those topics. It’s going to be a safe place for those matters. xoxox
These days, being confined at home, I like to take myself on a walk in the woods.
I don’t do it every day, because since it’s winter time we can get some gosh-awful weather. Definitely the worst is the combined winds + rain. Which for me cancels any thoughts of going out.
I have barely mentioned anything regarding my health issues, other than, I need to take some time off to care for myself… I don’t think I’m ready to write about it yet, but basically what I have is chronic. I am learning to live with it, and do the best I can whilst dealing with that. It sure hasn’t been easy but I’m an optimistic, and grateful person.
So, one of the most important thing in my daily life is to walk. Going into the woods gives me such good energy, it recharges me, connects me to the simple enjoyable things, and the importance of life. It also inspires me to look forward no matter what.
Where we live it’s such a beautiful and magical place. We have the woods nearby, and a lake, and also a river down… we get to see people riding horses. It’s very French as well, in the sense that it’s a foodie town, so you can find all the necessary ingredients for cooking amazing dishes. The Farmer’s & Flowers market is stunning, definitely worth going out on a Saturday morning for.
My day-to-day life is actually pretty peaceful, and lovely. I romanticize it a lot, which is easy because the surroundings are quite poetic, and that’s why I absolutely hate getting out of my bubble. I get so much anxiety whenever I have to go to Paris, even though it’s like super close and I’m a Parisian-born. Being here feels like we’re away from that madness, it’s delightful 💗
