Writing 101 – Day Twenty


It’s the final day of Writing 101!

I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, learned a lot, read even more:) and connected with some amazing people!

Today’s assignment: ‘The things we treasure’ – It’s the final day of the challenge already?! Let’s make sure we end it with a bang — or, in our case, with some furious collective tapping on our keyboards. For this final assignment, lead us through the history of an object that bears a special meaning to you.

‘Hidden treasures under our feet’

Thinking about things I treasure…

Throughout our life we collect things, moments…with time they become memories, we hold on to them and turn them into treasures.

I can’t count all the objects I’ve kept and locked in the memory box…each and every piece has a sentimental value and it’s a proof of wonderful moments that I was lucky enough to be part of.

…but if I look closer, it’s not the things I treasure… it’s the memories that come with them! So, today…the last assignment for this writing challenge I will open my memory box and share with you my most-prized possession:)

“…the sun never felt so warm…it was 7 o’clock in the morning and all I could think of was him. I know we always said that today will be like any other day…we didn’t need to prove anything…we knew each others souls, we knew we belonged, but even so, today was the day we will pledge our love in front of God, our family, our amazing friends and somehow everything will become more real.

I don’t know why I’ve said that…it was real before, but it was missing something…our hearts were longing for something…the blessing.

Now, thinking back, everything it’s a blur…I have all these pictures to remind me of that day and I treasure them dearly but my soul values the vows we took…those unforgettable moments when everyone and everything is in perfect line with the Universe and the land and the sky celebrates the union of two spirits.

My heart was racing, I’ve spent the morning crying and I wondered why people say that this is the most amazing day of your life…surely I am not the only bride who feels this way on her big day?! I wasn’t crying because something was wrong…I felt flooded with all these emotions and they all came at once…happiness, love, hope, peace, relief, fear. 

…walking down the ail…it’s like being in a boat, in the middle of the sea, desperately looking for land…

…but then, I saw him and my heart was filled with love, endless love…he was my light house, guiding me towards the rest of our life…”

Final note from the author:)

I was, I am and always will be in love with love…a hopeless romantic, you may say:)

The truth is that I value feelings more than anything, emotional experiences through which the world uncovers its beauty and leads us towards the unknown…the amazingly beautiful unknown, which awaits to be discovered.

The secret to uncover our destiny it’s simple…don’t walk the path alone, because together we are stronger, better and happier!

‘A walk in the clouds’


This weekend I was slightly out of ideas of what movies to watch…but going through my collection, I’ve found an interesting one! Guess what…it’s another love story:)))

This movie had all sorts of reviews, but at the end of the day, you decide if you’ve liked it or not!

I remember enjoying the story and honestly I would watch it again:)

Director: Alfonso Arau

Writers: Robert Mark Kamen, Mark Miller, Harvey Weitzman, Piero Tellini, Cesare Zavattini, Vittorio de Benedetti

Lead actors: Keanu Reeves, Aitana Sanchez-Gijon

1995, Drama Romance

The story it’s about love and the fascinating way that we can find what we need in the most unpredictable ways.

Paul is a returned soldier trying to overcome the horror of the war and a heart-break, when he meets Victoria, a beautiful traveler returning home with a secret.

Their story revolves around a selfless and quick decision that Paul takes to help Victoria by posing as her husband for her family. When both find themselves in a situation that none of them could have foreseen, their life will change in a way they couldn’t have imagined.

This movie it’s another way of telling a love story…a way that is random and surprising …a way that we realise what it means to be in the right place at the right time… a way that love teaches us how to find it…

Some believe in destiny, some…in luck and some live their life comfortable without knowing what will come…

This movie has it all…faith, surprise and a written story for two people brought together by chance.

Love it’s there when you need it the most…it’s never asking for more than you can give and it’s always your decision if you want to follow it!

Hope you enjoy your weekend and relax with a mug of hot chocolate watching a memorable movie!
