Weekend Reading

Notes in bed by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months) After moving in on Monday and running errands all around the city, calling plumbers and electricians to get all the final things sorted at my new place I've woken up absolutely exhausted – and I'm not done yet! I'm still struggling with getting my wifi and intercom working... Despite that I can't help but smile every morning when I wake up. I'm so happy to have found my little sanctuary after more than 8 (yes, 8) moves within one year. What made me even more delighted was seeing some of my dearest friends drinking, chatting and having fun here during Thursday night when I invited them over for a little "housewarming apéro". I guess that means that I'm officially moved in!

•   Where I'd rather be right now (instead of a grey and rainy Paris...) is right here. I'm just a tiiiny bit jealous Aisling! •   You probably haven't missed this – I mean, how could you? – but I'm sharing it anyway. Just because it's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen and just because I'm convinced that Nicole must be some sort of genius for creating this breathtaking concept. •   I'm off to Italy by the end of next week and I can not wait to get there! The beach, the food, seeing my friends again and getting some sort of vacation for the first time in a year. I'm reminiscing by looking through old photos of Rome from my time there last summer and from our little beach gem south of the city.
