I've been going through lots of my photos for work this afternoon and these two caught my eye as I was scrolling down in iphoto... they date back to our beautiful weekend in Paris in November.

I feel a bit of a void today.
Because my voice is missing. It kind of disappeared a few days ago and is yet to make a complete come back.
But mostly because my 24 students from all over the world, who I have been taking care of since early April, have left today to move on to their new universities... The last four months have been exhausting at times but so rewarding... I am going to miss them all greatly.

Today we are invited at Mel's for a summer party. It feels nothing like summer weather-wise but I have no doubt it will be lovely anyway!
I made her a little thank-you pouch and garland, with soft colours and a bit of fabric I printed just like these t-shirts (except I've now been using bleach instead of white ink as that wasn't that permanent after all...). :-)
P.S. I made the pouch following this tutorial (via here). Didn't think I would have to re-do some of the seams so many times before getting it right with the zipper but it worked out eventually...!

Our tickets for a weekend of sun and heat are booked. Hip. Hip. Hip. Hooray!
I don't expect the beaches in the heel of Italy to be quite like this one (this was in Western Australia in February) but I just cannot wait to see them. And to feel the sun on my skin again. Oh, I'm so excited!!

Our friends Marta and Joe got married today - we gave them a kit for a romantic day together in the country side; we found a cute basket which we filled with a checkered picnic blanket, champagne glasses and polka-dot napkins, and a voucher for a whole day of riding together on a cute vespa.
Congratulations to the newly-weds! We wish you an eternity of happiness together.
