The Small Ladies in Voluminous Dresses

flower

I used to talk to these flowers imagining they were little ladies with voluminous dresses and many frills. Ladies who, with their many legs danced in imaginary balls and were my company in summer afternoons. I swear I could even hear the music and the sound of their many shoes hitting one another.

So many days have passed since my imagination was enough to entertain myself and be happy. When you are a kid, talking to yourself out loud is no sign of madness.

I used to be so entertained in this process that even when my parents were mocking me from where they were standing, it took me a while to figure it out and stop talking for a while. But, just until they left. And, I went back to that small world that only existed in summer afternoons.

I usually went back home at dusk, when the crickets were echoing their voices, and I just let the flowers scattered on the floor because after all, I could just pick some more on the following day. There was this certainty of continuity…

Today none of this happens. I no longer have so much imagination, there are no imaginary balls or someone forgot to invite me. I cannot even find these flowers that often. There is no certainty of continuity, only fear of what may be next.

No more ladies with many legs and shoes. Just me with two legs…and many shoes! 🙂

What is this seriousness that comes with age? What happened?

I grew up.

An Inspiration Photo Shoot

pregnancy photoshoot pink cherry tree

I have never used to think about marriage and kids. I assumed it as something bound to happen, at its own time, but I have never given much thought to it.

Last year, after 15 years and six months of dating the same man, we finally got married. It was a wonderful day that we have planned together and made almost everything by ourselves. We went on a cruise ship for our honeymoon and almost everything happened to go as planned.

Almost nine months later and everyone is thinking: Why aren’t you pregnant? Well, I am not. And I do not know when I will be. Besides taking the time to know my own body, I have been forced to wait again and again, due to some health issues. One of these issues happened not even one week after we return from our honeymoon!

So, I don’t know when I will fall pregnant… or if I will ever be able to have kids, but one thing I know for sure: if I ever get to be blessed with a child, I want to make a photo shoot like this photo from Pink Peonies. I absolutely love it, it looks ethereal, dreamy, magical, beautiful and innocent. Just got to love it! Congratulations to the blogger and mom Rachel Parcell, for such great taste.

As for me, the waiting continues, but I hope not for too long…

What do you think about this photo? Do you agree it is a great inspiration photo shoot? Are you pregnant or planning to get? Getting pregnant is hard for anyone else out there?

Tchau!

All is Okay…

red & stripes

Often people judge each other by their appearance and the way they present themselves. Well, these are valid basis when you do not have anything besides that.

But, me, like many people, try to hide how we actually feel. Either because we do not want to be asked again and again about what is going on, but also because basically we do not want to look sad and depressed.

This photo was taken a week ago, when I could not wear heels. Actually, a week later and I still can’t. I had a back pain that spread to my leg and, I am having dificulties walking. But I wanted to look okay.

All is okay when it SEEMS okay…

Colored pants, a new look.

For such a long time I did not liked colored pants. Not for me as a woman, even worse if it was for a man. I just don’t know, but I thought it looked cheap and funny. Can’t exactly explain why I felt this way, but I did. But, as we all know, we keep changing our minds as we get old. 🙂

Well, lately I found myself wearing colored pants. And, my babe, as well. These mustard Scotch and Soda pants are just an eye catcher, right? At first I didn’t like it that much, and thought that he wouldn’t as well. Guess I was wrong! So, I couldn’t resist to make my first post about men’s fashion. I think he did well, so the world deserves to know! 😀

We’ve been in a cruise ship for a week and a half. It was our honeymoon. Yes, I got married, even though I haven’t posted anything about it. Just wait for the official (and stunning) photos!

These specific photos were taken at the Vatican City, in Italy. It was a quick stop, and I certainly will go back to Rome some other time in my life.

And, this was my outfit for this day. He did much better than I did, right? Must have been the seasickness! Hehe

Hope you all enjoy these photos!

How do you feel about colored pants? Have you ever been in a cruise ship, what was the experience like? And what about Italy, have you been there?

A Sunset & Shoes Story

Image

 

You never know the little wonders that you can find if you just step outside your door and look around. These photos were taken at Praia dos Anjos, Madeira. The name means Angels Beach. It’s not the common white/yellow sandy beach, but it’s so beautiful and you can wait and see this wonderful sunset.

I was trying to prove myself that I could walk normally with these shoes in the rocks, but it became obvious that I could break a leg.

You can also have a refreshing drink at Zion Project, a small eco-friendly bar inside a container. With re-used materials you can sit on handmade couches, chairs, puffs, tables, etc.

It was a pleasant afternoon, and I am planning to go back to Praia dos Anjos, but a bit earlier, so I can have a proper sun tan!

Have a great weekend!

Tchau!
