Making -and sharing- Memories

{Day 8872- Opening the doors of Making Memories}

I’ve always been very into the idea of having a home of my own.

As a teenager, I use to keep a notebook with cut-out pictures of dream interiors and collect disposable flatware because ‘it could come in handy when I moved to my own place’.

It took quite a few more years for me to realise that home didn’t have to be just that.

That building a home was just as much about picking objects to fill your physical space as it is about making memories in said space.

That the travel memories you make half way across the world and the taste of your dad’s signature lemon tart, your favourite breakfast and the little things that make you happy every day are just as big a part of home as, say, your sofa and your coffee table.

So here it is – a digital home for the memories I’m making.

Memories of daily life and extraordinary days, of being home and adventures far, far away, f delicious meals and life changing discoveries – in the hope it helps and inspires you to make your own!

Making -and sharing- Memories

The new blog.

I am at this point of my life where I have no idea what it’s all going to be like. Or how to describe myself, for that matter. Which is both exciting and quite unfortunate.

Especially as I just started this blog and you probably want to know all –or at the very least, something- about me.

What I can tell you is that I am no longer a student, but still struggle to see myself as a young working professional (who pays taxes, errgh!). Not Her Majesty’s subject, but speaking with fellow “expats” has become a bit too complicated to introduce myself as French. More of a Londoner than a Parisian, even if my heart will always belong to croissants and baguette.

There are very few things I am sure about, but my love for food, sleep and a few DYI projects are no secrets. Especially food. My current life pretty much revolves around it. I think it always has. But no cheese or onion soup for me I’m afraid. That’d make me far too French, wouldn’t it?
