To celebrate the 5th month of the year, I thought I'd make a list of 5 things I am grateful for in May:

1. May is my birth month. I will be turning 24 on the 27th of May. 24 sounds like a big number to me, like really close to 25 which is... you know, really close to 30! Feel like this is a decisive year as I finished my studies and need to figure out my future. And May is the month were i finally get to sit down, think and make plans. i love to do that!

2. Days are finally super long. There is good light till at least 8.30 pm which means I can do so much more once I'm back from work! in other words, Winter truly is over for a good 6 months!

3. In France, May is the perfect month. There are a lot of holidays, 4 to be exact, so no one works much haha. It's usually super warm and beautiful, as opposed to rainy March & April and too hot July and August. There's blossoming flowers everywhere. Pink and white and purple, gorgeous. i LOVE spring <3

4.Inspiration. I think because Spring is the season where everything comes back to life, i have this awesome urge to create. So right now i am working on: a new blog, a photography class (i'm trying to learn how to use my Manual mode thanks to the very talented Kara @ Classes Kara made), lots of layouts, learning a few things about Web Design and i signed up for the next Maggie Holmes class @ Studio Calico (i mean, how could i resist this gorgeous kit.)5. Movies! Cinema, films, movies, call it what you want. It's a big part of my life. And May means that it is almost time for the Cannes film festival! Which also means that a lot of awesome movies are going to be released the same week in the French movie theaters. I absolutely can not wait for the new Winding Refn, Luhrmann, Sorrentino, Coppola and so many more! Not planning on getting a lot of sleep in May. But that's ok! No doubt, May is my very favorite <3What about you? what are you grateful for?


  1. What a nice post - and such a great title for it! Our girl turns 15 this month and she isn't so sure that's a number she likes either

    1. i didn't like 15 that much either. 16 was awesome though!

  2. What great picture and post! The weather is the same here in Southern Ontario :)

  3. It sounds like you have nice month ahead of you. Long spring days and holidays is a great combination. ps...I felt the same way about turning 24. It felt huge but it wasn't too bad. don't ask me about 30 though..LOL have a great weekend!

  4. Great photo, I to am grateful for the sun starting to shine and the longer days :)
