Today is Mother’s Day in Portugal so this is dedicated to my mom, because she truly is the best ever and has A LOT of patience to put up with me! Love you Mom!
These have been my days. I’ve been pretty busy, between editing photos, (trying to) work and dealing with some personal stuff. Y’know, life. I haven’t been taking that many photos with my DSLR, but I’ve made it a point to use my phone to sort of document some of my daily life.
As you see there’s been a lot of delicious food (I’ll come back to that on another post, later this week), spending time with the fam, etc. Nothing too extraordinary.
I’m getting antsy for the arrival of real Spring. Sun, beautiful days, dresses! I think I’ll have to wait till May though.
What about you, how have you been?
Hope you’re having a good monday!
Hey guys! Hope you’re all having a great Easter sunday.
It was a pretty good day here. Lots of food, of course!
After the family lunch, the girls decided to go out since it was such a beautiful and sunny day out. We went to Sintra, which if you’ve never been there you’re really missing out.
I didn’t take my camera with me (it was a last minute decision!) but I did take some pics with my phone so that’s better than nothing.
I’ll be back this week with proper updates and decent photos!
Yesterday was my brother’s 32nd birthday. It was a nice evening, spent with the whole family. There was cake, of course!
Also, a silly photo of us!
I always hesitated about creating a public blog because I know I’m not one of those people that can keep posting all cheerful posts with good quality photos all.the.time. I can’t. Because sometimes you have other things on your mind so you don’t even think about bringing your camera with you; other times you just aren’t in a good mood and who wants to read some girl whining about her problems?
There’s also the professional side of it. I know a lot of people come here to see my photos and that’s it. I don’t mind. That’s what I want. I WANT people to see my photos and like them. Makes sense as I’ve always wanted photography to be my livelihood, right? But some days, like today, I feel the need to write and not be obligated to show you just pretty pictures. Because life happens. And it’s not always perfect. I said I wanted this to be a personal blog and this is, unfortunately, part of it.
So I’m not going to say today was a wonderful day. It wasn’t. Waking up to hear someone you love in pain is something I really don’t wish on anybody. Thankfully, things are a little better now but I’m exhausted. Pretty sure I’m going to spend the rest of the day watching TV shows and trying not to fall asleep before 10pm.
Just one more thing before I go: Call your parents/family today and tell them you love them.
The last few days haven’t been that eventful, hence the lack of updates. A member of my family has been home, sick, and I’ve basically been spending time with her. We’re lucky I can actually be here to keep her company. Today was our first outing in a few days. We went for a little walk and then to a café near the apartment. It’s a beautiful day and we didn’t wanna miss the sunshine.
Hope you all have a great week!
Today’s my father’s birthday.
There’s family, movies and cake. In my book that’s a good day.
Today was a day spent in family. Playing games (we play bingo with money, very serious business, ok?), eating a lot of scones, drinking tea and just relaxing together. I really needed a day like this, being able to disconnect from all the problems and enjoy the moment.
