Happy New Year

My 2013

I don’t think I’ve ever been happier, met more amazing people or gotten to experience more crazy adventures than I’ve done during this year. What started out as a though and challenging year turned out to be the one that had the most exciting events in store for me.

I must admit that I made the best decision I’ve ever made, which was moving back to Paris for an indefinite amount of time. If I wouldn’t have boarded that plane in January, a year ago now, I don’t think these things would have happened to me.

I’ve tried my luck at working as a freelance photographer, and even though it can be extremely hard from time to time I’ve realised that this is what I want to do right now. I’ve gotten to meet (and yes, let’s not forget about hugged) one of my idols Alain Ducasse, bonded with the best of friends over midnight ice cream, explored Corsica with some of the loveliest souls I’ve met, eaten way too many delicious sweets and laughed so hard I eventually ended up crying after hearing some of the funniest stories shared over dinner and several glasses of wine.

I’ve seen Paris completely covered in freshly fallen snow and ended up next to both Cara Delvingne and Miranda Kerr during Paris fashion week. Eaten ridiculous yummy burgers in the best company imaginable. I discovered my love for fashion photography after shooting these photos and I’ve gotten to see Versailles with my own eyes for the first time. I spent the summer at the beach together with dear family friends before heading off to Rome by myself. I’ve had to say good bye to friends who I’ll forever have in my heart and I’ve cried my eyes out before parting ways for who knows how long, which certainly wasn’t the highlight of the year… But becoming a godmother for the first time ever surely was! I still can’t believe it. Congratulations again my sweet Grace! I feel like the proudest person in the whole world.

Needless to say, I get all giddy just thinking about this amazing year. I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for us all! Hopefully it will be just as magical. But the best thing about this year has been meeting people who’ve changed my life forever. And for that, I’m forever grateful.

Happy New Year to you all!
