I've spent the last few days in 1925's home turned into a small boutique hotel. If you follow my Instagram you may have noticed that I loved the decor details,  the property and that I want to live in the bathroom. Which, by the way I said to owner, who gave me an odd look. 

I have to say I was so positively impressed. What have you been positively impressed about lately ?

Yesterday morning I finally finished packing my fourteen day trip suit case. I worked on it for three nights in a row, it was a tough one to pack because of the weather and the many activities involved. Regardless, one of the first things I packed were my Kate Spade flats.

I arrived at my first stop, Montevideo in Uruguay today at 1:00 a.m., rose early to have breakfast and walked the 1925's home garden to take these pictures.

When I got into the car to go to work I looked down to realise the bow on one my flats was missing. Later that evening I learned Kate Spade had passed away, when I became aware it was depression I could not comprehend how someone who had sparked and transmitted so much joy could get there. 
Then again we can never really know what goes on behind a smile. We can never know if when we ask someone "How are you?" a reply that says "I'm ok" means the person is really ok.

All I can say is that the moment I get home I am going to call one of my friends who has been without a job since last year and having a tough time and have breakfast with him. See how he really is.

Oh, and I found the bow to the shoe.

Today I thought I'd share with you things you may or may not know about me...

1) I am 5'1 and height is not a concern I have or am aware of. I usually do not notice how tall or small anyone is. 
2) I love being outdoors, getting my hands dirty and planting. I've harvested my own papaya,  granadilla fruit and even pumpkins !
3) I am super strict and disciplined with everything but food and exercise. 

I'd love to know something I may not know about you, share in the comments section.
