I love escaping back home to Spain. Olive groves that roll on forever, almost always sunny skies and dogs that will happily romp around with you all day long. Coming back here is good for me, its a place I quietly slip to when city life starts to rattle me. I pride myself on being very high-energy, its probably my best trait – I have incredible passion for what what I do, both creatively and professionally. But for a few weeks last year, I woke up everyday and felt completely lackadaisical about everything. I was diligent at work but with robotic indifference. So when I boarded my plane back home, I knew something needed to change. Two weeks later and I’m totally reinvigorated. Despite the holidays, I’ve been beavering away on my freelance work, reopening my little Frassy Rags shop as well as pursuing a few creative projects I have been meaning to start for a long time now. Life can be tough girls, especially for us, I think women are susceptible to a whole array of crazy emotions that consume us completely, and we feel things we can’t really even explain. I guess what I’m trying to get at here, is that its important to give yourself a break sometimes. Take some time, get some distance – sometimes its best to simply sit and think rather than do anything.And with that said, I am ready to tackle Paris and every other city that comes my way this year! I hope you are all as feeling as positive as I am!
