I have spent the last few days with my sister and nephew and it has been awesome.
We have been miles apart for such a long time now that it is starting to really hit us how different our lives have become. I am feeling very grateful that it hasn’t separated us even if at times it makes it hard to understand each other.

Only the Channel seperates our two countries (and there will be an ocean soon) but this is enough to make us feel very different. Sometimes it takes a lot patience and tolerance for both of us to not blow fire in each others face but with age comes wisdom and we are becoming rather good at holding it together.

Thankfully what there is most of when we are together are secrets shared, laughter and silliness. It never takes us very much to go back to being teenagers doing each others hair, pinching makeup, painting nails and swapping shoes and handbags.

The new distance will be feeling huge at times but hopefully we will be able to visit each other regularly.



  1. You look so alike! Loving the new blog design too x

    • We do look more and more like each other as we are getting older, that’s quite scary actually 🙂
      Thanks re the blog! x

  2. You look very alike. There’s nothing better than having a sister- my sister is ten years younger than me but even though we have a huge age gap we are still so close. I love her to pieces. x

    • I agree with you, sisters are very special indeed x

  3. So funny, I’m French, born and raised in England, moved to Chicago for 5 years now back in England! Chicago is an amazing place and there’s so much to do! Bonne chance avec tout 🙂

    • How funny! Thank you for commenting and very nice to meet you 🙂

  4. Isn’t she just! We are very much alike now 🙂
    How are you? xx
