I wake up early in the morning feeling rested and peaceful. Through the window I see the overwhelming blue sky and the dreamy pink sunlight, there are no curtains in my bedroom, cause I wanna wake up with the sunrise. I look at the love of my life, lying next to me. He sleeps with a smile on his face and I know why...I kiss him on his forehead before I get up. Everyone in the house is sleeping, this is my quiet time.
After a glass of fresh pressed juice, made of lime, apple, ginger and mynthe, I go outside into the garden, I have a special place for yoga right next to the pool. I stand still for a moment breathing in deeply, feeling the fresh mediterian breeze touching my skin, and I take in the smell of the sea. Our house is located in Spain, in the mountains, overlooking the ocean. Everytime I stand here looking at this view I feel blessed deep in my heart. I do about an hour of silent yoga and meditation, feeling totally in balance with my body and soul.
My kids are up now and already playing in the pool. I am getting ready to go to Barcelona for a photoshoot with Spanish Vouge. They just hired me to take portraits of Penelope Cruze. The shooting location is a beautiful art nouveau style penthouse. I take off wearing flip flops, big dark sunglasses and a hip, but casual dress. After a little bit of driving in my Mini Cooper convertible I reach the city and meet with the crew.
The shoot is fun and we laugh a lot, every one are very friendly and helpful. My creativity rushes through my veins and I feel high and happy. I work completly in flow. After the session I meet with a dear friend for sushi and champagne. We sit in a hip cafe overlooking the Barcelona skyline. We both agree that life is amazing and we talk ideas and share inspiration.
I hug my friend goodbye and walk to a gallery near by, wich is hosting my artwork. The owner tells me, that they just sold 4 of my art pieces to a company in the New York. For a moment I`m thinking about how my life has turned out.... how everything has fallen into place...and in that moment I´m happy that I did dare to follow my dreams and goals in life. I knew already as a little girl that I was an artist, but it took me 35 years to live by that gut feeling and belive in the possibilities for succes.
Back in the house I shower and my personal physiotherapist comes by and gives me half an hour of massage. Afterwood my teen girls and I have fun playing loud music and dressing up. We have the same taste in clothes and share most of our outfits. I go out wearing a stylish Ralph Lauren dress, big earrings and stilettos.
The kids, my hubby and I meet up with friends and their kids in a nearby Lounge and Chillout resturant. The table get´s loaded with georgeus spanish tapas dishes of all kinds. We drink Mojitos and Red wine while enjoying the music and our friends. As we sit there the sun goes down... for a moment I get quiet...stunned by this amazing life of mine.... suddenly but carfully, my husband takes my hand and I look into his eyes... in that moment nothing really matters but the love we feel for each other and our kids....everything is perfect... all is well...
I love my life and may my perfect day never end....
