Thinking of #London and We are the World #WATWB

Almost one year ago, I walked the streets of London, and spent time with good friends, along with working harder than ever on my writing.

What Object Do You Cherish and Why? #CBF16 #blogging

I’ve stared at this photo in the past years, and imagined her growing up, growing older, falling in love, getting married, becoming a mother.

I was traveling through half of April, not in the best of conditions, and most days I almost didn’t write the story. But some of my blog friends made this all worthwhile, so I’ll simply devote this post to them.
