Life Update Summer Edition

    Have an amazing time with your family. You deserve it 100%, especially during uncertain times like these. I completely understand where you’re coming from regarding closing off a bit. You have to protect yourself. Your physical and mental wellbeing comes first.

    I think there’s an unhealthy practice online of calling people out- yes there are situations where it’s appropriate (racism, sexism, any kind of discriminatory practices should be called out,) and politely disagreeing or correcting minor errors is another thing, but all too often I feel like people are coming from a place of trying to make themselves feel better by putting others down. Classic schoolyard bullying. Anyways, I’ve really enjoyed your thoughts and photography and look forward to seeing how you send your summer in France..wishing you the best 🙂

      Hey Georgia! Thank you so much, really appreciate it!
      I couldn’t agree more with everything you said, I 100% agree that for most people it’s a short fix to try and make themselves feel better, coming straight from their ego. Made especially worse I think in these strange scary times. Thank you so much for the support and your kind words 🙂 I hope you also have a beautiful summer, love x

    What a great decision! Living in the south of France with your families now is probably such a dream, especially over the summer. I hope you get to relax and take it all in without rush or thoughts about leaving again.

    As for not wanting to share online at the moment, I get that a lot. "Cancel culture" and all the nit-picking online makes me so sad. I fear that we are losing giving grace to other people, helping each other along on the journey and letting everyone make mistakes. Patience and mercy are skills that I want to keep practicing even though they seem to be getting lost, especially online. I really enjoyed this article by Darling Magazine on the topic: https://darlingmagazine.org/cancel-culture-and-french-fries/ and the sisters from A Beautiful Mess have done a podcast episode on online bullying as well, which was really good.

    I hope you’ll keep sharing bits and pieces online, maybe with more blogposts and less instagram? Or personal newsletters?

It’s that time of the year again when all that matters is CHOCOLATE and HOT CROSS BUNS!!! Now if you can combine the two… then you have a winning combo in my opinion. I can’t quite believe it’s been a whole year since I last made and shared these (they were in a collab with […]
