Who said that the New Year's is the only appropriate time to make life-changing decisions? Definitely not me! This year I have decided to make fall the beginning of my new life journey.
I already hinted that this summer wasn't really kind to me. In fact, I found myself in the eye of a hurricane, forced to rethink all the truths and illusions I was living by. Without delving into too many details, I'm no longer engaged, and I'm happily single again (happily being the important word here). After more than 4 years spent together, Philippe and I arrived at the point in our lives where we were both heading in a different direction, unable to work things out. Fortunately we were able to handle things like two grown-ups, without unnecessary drama and tons of breaking china.
I won't pretend that it wasn't hard. Because it was. It was one of the hardest things I'd ever lived through in my life. But I must say that I was (and still am) impressed by my own inner strength. Just when I was expected to crumple and weep over my sort, I found myself welcoming the change and looking forward to my future and to all the amazing things and opportunities that lay ahead. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and most often the worst moments of our life are the ones that make us grow and move forward. And that's how I feel right now: stronger, wiser and ready for any challenge life throws my way. I'm more determined than ever to focus on my own life, my career and my future, making my own choices and carving my own, unique path towards happiness.
This blog and you, my lovely readers, are a huge source of joy in my life. And since so many things have been happening in my life lately, it only feels appropriate to give my blog a makeover. I want it to be clean and more grown-up, chic and feminine, a true reflection of my style, my aesthetics and my aspirations. I've been working on this new design for days and I couldn't be happier with the result. My goal is to inspire you to seek out and create beauty in your day-to-day life, through fashion, food, home decor and constant creativity. And I couldn't thank you more for following along. You are the best!
