|We seem to love short getaways, a day is enough to stroll down the street, grab an ice cream, look around the corner and jump in a car for a ride back home. One day of spontaneousness speaks to us louder than a day of preparation and usually it's never defined on our personalized calendar. Not every choice of trip decided on the spur of the moment is completely washed out of some errands that have to be ran but we always focus on the fun factor throughout. It's the deal. Sealed with a huge dose of positive expectations and right coordination. With Damian in tow we're more on a neatier, organized side. |
Before there was still hope to get Nadia's passport ready before family holiday (those cases take light years to complete especially when you're torn between two countries and no one really knows which one is closer to your heart, let alone residency status in this case) - traipsing at a snail speed on London's busy sidewalks cheered every cell of that tiny body emerging from underneath stores' canopies into the sunshine. Brisk walking, avoiding short showers with a friendly grin was marking our afternoon. As typing this I came to realize how annoying my requests to stop here or capture this might have been. Getting impressed by a window decoration, unusual change of scenery as I rebel around? Everything seems so real to me these days, so within reach if you're willing to touch. The hues, textures are so permittive and I'm grateful for the luxury of noticing and embracing them.
As we drove home I hugged that sleepy head of mine in the car seat next to me (I haven't sat in the front passenger seat since the day she was born and I'm happy never to do that again) knowing how lucky mama I am - her presence is magical, her monologues are wonderfully vibrant so much so that I needn't do anything but melt.
|^^ Fast-paced but productive shopping. Unlike me, she knows exactly what she'd like. I predict a wonderful shopping buddy in near future. ^^|
|^^ Superdry or superwet... make up your mind, London! ^^|
