July: Falling in love when all i thought i was doing was going out for a coffee with an old friend. Dog sitting & walking Nuno's dog, smiling alone in the street, listening to music all the time, sighing.
August: a beautiful and moving trip with my niece to a place where we spent a lot of Summer vacations, the perfect hot day.
Ending my afternoons writing letters and drinking cider, and for the first time in my life, having intimate conversations online with this boy i could not understand, but could not let go.
September: the month so far i took more photos, i just felt so in love i was in love with everything, including my body.
October : Discovering i was with a serious health problem on my back, experiencing physical pain along with a heart being broken. Finding comfort in my plants.
November: A lot of time resting, some time helping out some friends on a very special shop, go treasure hunting with them, getting close to other people that were already in my life, taking pictures of their cats. Lies coming out into the open, me trying to make sense of it all.
December: Some frustration for having my body in this fragile mode, saying goodbye face to face to the boy, writing a lot for myself, writing him the most honest letter a girl could write, asking for a few answers and guide lines and getting some truth to be said out loud, finding my hardest questions being answered by silence.
January : crossing my favorite bridge, feeling the cold, loving the sense of freedom i get from walking alone.
February : wandering in the botanical garden, small but big enough to embrace me and make me forget about the world outside.
March: Matilde sun bathing in the room, on top of my desk while i was writing letters.
April: Ariana's birthday, celebrating Spring with friends and a lot of food in the city's park.
May: Visiting Raquel at her wonderful house, feeling summer getting close, warmer days.
June: visiting the beach on rainy days, the disclosure of several lies after a sleepless night.
My birthday, celebrated in two very different places. Wearing dresses all the time.
