And here we are, another year has passed, another place to celebrate it, yet different circumstances and more goals achieved ...
But still this pride that doesn’t leave me but grows more and more every day.
Just out of bed, I’ve expressed my gratitude and recognised that hardships in life happen to make us stronger and wiser.

Everything started in Santorini, this magical island in the Aegean Sea, which brought me back to life on May 27, 2017.
I was to marry the man I loved, but I found myself on my own before the altar.
I had no idea of my future, only the present mattered to me then, and my Solo Wedding was my lifebuoy.
The Spanish capital, Madrid, I’ve never thought I would be there on May 27, 2018.
I was preparing for a third attempt to freeze my eggs; I was on hormonal treatment and I was doing the daily injections myself. I was alone and extremely emotional because of the hormones, not to mention the stress of a possible new failure.
Despite this, I’ve celebrated my 1st wedding anniversary with fun, starting with churros for breakfast, or rather porras (Madrid specialty, like churros but bigger)!!
I stayed for several months, which allowed me to spend time in museums, especially in the Prado, my favourite museum. I was also very active on the blog and shared many of my discoveries with you.
I had just left Crete, my book was finished!
So happy with what I had just accomplished. All these months of loneliness and introspection, without TV and sometimes without internet for several days, had just given birth to one of my most beautiful projects, and certainly one of the most necessary.

Since I couldn't travel as planned, I had plenty of time to make videos and develop my social media:
My anniversary day was great, I had a lot of fun and relaxed at home, with pina coladas and sun, especially I ate churros!

I offer you a new Extract from my book My Solo Wedding in Santorini:
"Having a purpose is fundamental after a breakup, especially do not give yourself time to feel sorry for yourself, it does not prevent pain or tears, but it helps not to collapse. Some people take refuge in work, I preferred to focus on myself only. My personal life had just crumbled, I had decided to devote fully to myself for the rest of the year. I was going to put my energy to the benefit of my quest for happiness, all those things that I wanted to accomplish and that I kept postponing. Taking time for me, thinking about what I really expected from life, what would make me happy again, the things I was dreaming of, but also what I would like to do in the near future and more distant, either personally or professionally. Above all, listening to my heart and asking what it wanted, taking the time for my feelings, letting my emotions express themselves." L.
