The Last Year of my 20’s


I’ll be honest. I spent most of my adolescence on feeling like an alien, uncertain of how to act, what to say, or even be. But I can say that as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to embrace my quirks and that was probably one of the hardest parts of growing up for me.  Yesterday’s […]

8:30 am, breakfast of soft boiled eggs & cheesecake stuffed crepes. 9:45 am, a clementine snack at the beach. 10:45, swimming in the deep blue sea.   11:30, lounging with J. 12:55 and walking to get a snack, these seagulls can’t seem to fly forward because of the strong gust of wind. 1:30, snack time.

Life Lately


The moment we left home and started driving away, I started bawling.  Like a baby.  I’ll be 29 in 3 months and there I was.  Bawling. It’s been nearly 2 weeks now and it still hasn’t quite sunk in but we’re just about settled in and I’m enjoying the slow pace of the island.  Everyone […]
