One more, because I just have too many great memories from this time not to share. 💚 This is the summer that I moved to London, completely on my own, to be an au pair for a family that I’d only met via Skype. I knew no one apart from the host family that I lived with, but I luckily connected with a French au pair living nearby, and met this hilariously fun Aussie gal to my left through her. I had the most incredible summer with my new friends, exploring London, taking solo trips to Oxford and Cambridge, staying in Suffolk with my host family, and traveling to Portugal and Ireland for the first time. I still think that those four months spent in London and beyond were the best and most adventerous thing I’d ever done, and I’m so grateful for the memories and friendships made there. ❤️❤️ #alltheadventures#allthefeels#ireland#london#aupairlife

Little known fact- when I was a kid, the three wise men in the Christmas story were my favorites. In my preschool Christmas pageant, I actually got cast as Joseph- probably the most important male part not played by a doll, and I was so bummed I couldn’t be a wise man.
Maybe it’s because I liked the tall crowns they got to wear, or that their job description was literally wise man. Or maybe because they’re often kept multi-ethnic, even in ancient European depictions. Plus I could kinda relate to them knowing that they saw the star and we’re like, “How long will it take us to get there? Two years? Whatever. Still worth showing up to, even if we’re a couple years late.”
Anyway, here’s a picture of me playing Balthazar in Tecate a couple months ago as a reminder that, even if it’s decades later, dreams can still come true.
Me sigue sorprendiendo y a la vez me encanta que esté nevando tanto en España. Hay zonas de #Guadalajara que están completamente blancas.
¿Reconoces la imagen? Si has pasado por la N-II recorriendo la provincia, seguramente alguna vez te fijaste en ella. Rodeada de nieve llama aún más la atención.
Se trata de una torre de vigilancia medieval que recibió el nombre de Torre de Saviñán. Quedó destruida durante la Guerra de Sucesión Española
“I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous and already here...
The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.” 💕 // 📷: @scottishbryan
