Day and Night...

In the absence of any travel adventures - and let's face it, that's most of the year nowadays - I have to be happy with what's nearby. When I say "have to be" I actually mean that I am. Small pleasures and treasures like single pieces of old cutlery found on a market, flowers and the new Elle Decoration. Days celebrating a birthday, eating cake and evenings spent until the early hours laughing and chatting with friends over wine, cheese and baguette. While I always long to visit new places, explore countries and experience new adventures, these things are what make it not just easier to stay put, but make me appreciate what's right here in front of me...
