It’s been a long time since my last Visual Diary, so I think it’s time for an update. These type of posts really help me to understand my current state of mind and get a new perspective on the state of my life. Sometimes it’s easy to become wrapped up in whatever thoughts or worries you have at the moment, and you forget that you’re actually living a pretty decent life.
The past couple months I’ve been preoccupied with a babysitting job that left me feeling tired and sometimes stressed out every weekend. I tried to get out and do things, which certainly helped my mood, but didn’t yield very much good blog content. Time has almost felt non-existent, like a blur, like I was only half-awake through May and June. Leaving my last day of baby-sitting, I almost felt like a kid leaving school for summer vacation again, except that it was cold and rainy that day. Is it summer yet??
I did manage, however, to spend some time with a couple California friends who were travelling through Paris. I also managed to share some lovely meals out at restaurants, sprawl out in the grass under the sun with my sweetheart, explore the gardens and smaller palaces of Versailles, and have a few walkabouts through Paris. It hasn’t been the most exciting couple months, but I really needed a break in the monotony of unemployment I was wallowing in before.
In the coming months, we are going to have a couple exciting guests! First, Erik’s sister will be visiting. I’m very excited to finally meet her in person! Then, my best friend Natalie will be visiting for 2 weeks! We’re planning to visit nearby cities such as Rouen, Chartres, and the Champagne region. Exciting stuff, people!!
I may also be getting a haircut soon, perhaps bangs. Also, since we now have an oven, more cooking will probably be happening, and I’d love to invest in some more home wares to make this place feel even more comfortable.
à bientôt mes amis!
Such a lovely post! I get the exhausted work-rut; few things worse! Seems like you’ve got a good plan to finish summer though :)
Thank you! And yes, one of my biggest dreams is to like what I do for a living, I hope I can make it happen!
