I'm Gonna Walk A Hundred Miles..

Sunday, 16 February 2014

It seems spring is a' springing up around the corner, daffodils are blooming and the sun is almost blindingly bright today. Spring is one of my favourite months, it's a welcome change from the bitter wind and rain we've been having lately, and everything just seems to come alive. Today, a little old man stood and watched as Marcos took some outfit photos of me. He finally hurried over after moments of watching and smiling and told me that I looked beautiful and had an old soul type of aura about me. He offered to take a photo of myself and Marcos too! He was so sweet and even joined us for a coffee later on in the day, serenading us with Nina Simone on the flute! So aside from how frozen I was by the time I got home (I simply refuse to dress appropriately for the cold weather) it was a pretty wonderful day.

You may have noticed that my blog photos have been of a better quality lately, and that's all down to this awesome guy! I urge you all to check out his photography and architecture website here and find him on instagram here, he's super duper talented, an awesome friend and is the most patient photographer ever!

In more musical news, there are just some songs in life that just fill you too the brim with a dizzying sense of optimism that you just want to shout it from the rooftops and hug strangers. The type of music that put's a skip in your step and has you smiling from ear to ear. Mindy Gledhill's music does that to me, and is one of the greatest things i've found this month, her songs are just so wonderfully refreshing and uplifting. I urge you to give Whole Wide World a listen, i always find myself playing this loudly in the morning before I start my day! Oh, and I'm not sure if you've noticed but i'm posting a lot more frequently lately, ironic considering i'm submitting my dissertation on Monday, but i'm enjoying keeping things regular! And thank you so much to everyone who read and commented on my last post! It's so nice to talk about other things on the blog.
