Happy Mother’s Day, do all of you mother’s out there. My mom will be visiting in June, and to say the least, I am SO excited. Seeing her once a year is clearly not enough as I just want to hang out with her all the time. There will be many evenings with wine and cheese, strolls along the Seine, late night chit-chats and all of that cliché stuff. I am so grateful to have been raised by a woman so kind and with such a big heart, who taught us to be open minded, passionate, patient and ambitious.
On a sidenote, I am obsessed with Rita Ora’s video.

I love traditions. I inherited this love from my mother. I like the idea of things and moments repeating themselves. It gives me something to look forward to, and to continuously appreciate. I sometimes wonder how lame things could be if it weren’t for traditions.
With that said, my bestie and I are starting a new tradition: random frolicking in Paris on the weekends. This past Sunday was our first Sunday Funday, and we filled it up with vegan cupcakes, a pumpkin spice flat white, a deliciously hoppy pint, quick play of tourist and hot cocoa with Valerie and finished it off with some indian food with more awesome friends.
Sometimes a decently packed day like this one is needed for sanity. What’s better than riding a bike all over Paris on a surprisingly sunny autumn Sunday?
