Autumn has been MIA in Barcelona this year. Until a week ago we were still on our 68ºF (20ºC), we had our summer wardrobe at full bloom and not many beautiful shades of leaves at sight to enjoy. This lack of autumn specially upsets me because clothing-wise I love the challenge of start layering (with more or less success, that’s always the trickiest part, right? summers are much easier!) and because when I think of autumn only good things happening in my life come up.
I guess somehow my mind directly relates this absence of autumn with the gloomy days I am this season having; too much work pressure (meaning our not blog-related full-time work) that leave us empty, tired, without being able to be fully ourselves. It has been hard to look at the good side of everything else and we nevertheless have to admit that we know we should be proud, happy and hopeful for the news and challenges that the blog and photography is bringing us in our daily lives.
I have realized that although complaining can be a a temporary kind of fake healing, the only thing that works for us is to put a smile and visualize a list of all the good things happening at the same time of those not so good ones, focus while constructing a future with them. I’m sure this will give us tools to keep up with more short sleeves’ autumns, so go ahead keep them coming, we’ll be prepared!
The pictures in this post were taken at Jardin des Tuileries during our wedding anniversary getaway at the end of October. I think showing a moment that definitely makes us smile needed to be in order for this post :)
How was your autumn? Is winter approaching at your home town? I’m extremely looking for it, I’m planning to bring the crafty me back: tremble with fear!
