I'm Back!

Ferrara
It's been such a long time! I have to admit, I've never been a consistent blogger, but I really hope that somehow (magically) this bad habit of mine (procrastination) is going to change. One thing I know for sure is that I would never stop blogging completely! I absolutely love this little space of mine on the internet; it has helped me to develop the habit of noticing the details of the world around me; to slow down and savor overlooked occasions and to take the time and capture the little moments in my every day life. I truly believe that it's the combination of the tiny moments in a day that makes life matter and connects you to other people. 
So why did I disappear for a few months? The main reason was that I went through a big change in my personal life and I totally lost all my motivation and couldn't think of anything to write about.
However, a few wonderful things happened in the past couple of months that got me motivated and inspired again; I travelled to Vals in Switzerland and Bregenz in Austria and saw three amazing buildings designed by the world famous architect Peter Zumthor. I went back to Tehran to visit my family and friends for the Persian New Year. I went to Bologna, Ferrara and Florence (first time to Italy) and visited one of my best friends from university (we hadn't seen each other for almost 8 years!). So I prepared this blogpost (which took me forever!) to break the ice and get into my blogging 'momentum' again!
Here's a few photos of my trips... and 10 things that are making me very happy (as of late):
1. sleeping in, then having breakfast in bed
2. friends and red wine
3. unexpected hugs
4. holidays to new destinations
5. surprisingly pleasant people
6. the voice of my parents on the phone
7. sweet potato chips
8. half-melted ice cream
9. hearing a song that brings back a good memory
10. ordering books online
