diary | for life in paris is sweet

February 21, 2013

A few weeks ago I was a bit down from being back from Mexico.

Having spent the holidays there, made me realize how much I miss my family and the warmth of my country. So I knew I needed to go to one of my favorite places to cheer me up; the rooftop of Printemps.
Being there with such a magnificent view, next to my love and eating some sweet macarons, was the perfect reminder that even though it’s been tough, that my projects in terms of career are taking longer to reach than I expected and what a huge sacrifice it is to be far from my family and friends… still I am  a very lucky person who gets to live in a city of dreams.

ES: Hace unas semanas, estaba un poco triste por haber regresado de México. El haber pasado las fiestas allá me hizo darme cuenta de lo mucho que extraño a mi familia y la calidez de mi país. Así que sabía que necesitaba ir a uno de mis lugares favoritos en Paris para sentirme mejor; el techo de Printemps.
Estando ahí con la magnífica vista, junto a mi amor y comiendo macarons (que son mis favoritos), fue el mejor recordatorio de que aunque las cosas no han sido fáciles, que mis proyectos no se han dado como esperaba (y estan tomándo mas tiempo de lo que me gustaría) y el gran sacrificio que es estar lejos de los que amo… aún soy una persona extremadamente afortunada por tener la oportunidad de vivir en una ciudad de sueños.

    Parece que cuando andamos decaídas y tristonas el mundo conspira contra nosotras, pero la realidad es que todo lo bueno lleva tiempo y seguro se está cocinando algo grande que hará que tus sacrificios valgan la pena :)

    Lo bueno es que tienes a tu amor, los deliciosos macarons y el bello Paris haciéndote compañía mientas llega ;)

    Ánimo y suerte en todo!!

      Thank you! glad you like them! Yeah I have to stay possitive, sometimes we get lost focusing on the negative the important thing is to have people around to remind you of the great things :)
      Thanks for passing by!

    I feel like going to Paris straight away… all because your photos.
    It seems so close from Poland in comparison with Mexico that I’m starting to wonder what makes me not to go? :)
