Last Sunday I was the Action Model for @theartistguildevents where for the first time I was captured live by pencils instead of cameras. I've been blown away by the amazing talent of these artists! Their drawings have captured the essence incredibly well and I feel inspired by every single one of them. The poses were much more dynamic and faster than their previous sessions and I was very happy with the positive feedback of everyone towards this challenge. I would happily model for them again!
Instagram only allows 10 photos in a post, so here are some of the many drawings of that day. Enjoy!
Dear Loch Lomond,
Visiting you was beyond words, but allow me to try anyway. For you have been so much more than just a spectacular view. Unexpectedly and out of nothing, you gave my soul partner a deep sense of returning home. A feeling of recognition and belonging. I've never seen him break this deeply. It wasn't sad, it was beautiful. Intensly beautiful. Seeing him, you and the both of you coming together.
A 'thank you' softly escaped my lips as I humbly walked in your waters. Thankful for this soul experience. Grateful to see him who I love deeply finally truly ground. Shoot his roots and connect to a far away past.
We have all been here before. Long, long ago.
We don't always have the luxury to return to our true homes, but sometimes we do. Sometimes we do.

The Art of Slowing Down
Pancakes for breakfast
Nude swims in the lake
Being kissed by the sun
Pizza, wine and tiramisu
Cuddling tiny humans
Walking the dog
Riding the motorcycle
Drinking coffee on the balcony
Picknick in the garden
Playing the Ukulele
Listening to rain and thunder in bed
Softly singing lullabies
Watching the guys prepare ribs
Reading Winnie the Pooh
Wearing a lucky clover in my blouse
Buying fresh honey from the beekeeper
Inhaling the sweet scent of the forest
Visiting the best ice salon in town
Doing absolutely nothing
Napping under the tree
Warm hugs and soft kisses
Fresh fruit platters
Elegant and sexy Italian dresses
Wet hair drying in the sun
Walking naked in the grass
Listening to singing birds
Drinking tea and eating chocolate
Mark and I are spending the whole week with @marielu1903 & @koehlerm72 in the South of Germany. Making time for those we love as we enjoy the absence of sound. Enjoying a break from the city and becoming comfortable with the Art of Slowing Down, which is (as I re-read the list above) essential in life. Pure and absolute magic.
I would love to know what your best moments of embracing the Art of Slowing Down have been in these past few days.
Spending a week with my moon sister in the South of Germany. Surrounded by tall trees, green fields, songs of birds and mostly: silence. The pace here is different than the one in the city and exactly what I often long for. Yet at the same time I struggle a bit with slowing down. It's hard for me to sit still and do nothing and possibly, maybe, what I need right now.
In this place it's the absence of sound that brings rest to the soul. The sun kisses our skin as we enjoy walks through forest and hills, pancakes for breakfast, motorcycle rides to the village for the best ice-cream ever (dark chocolate & yogurt lime), BBQ on the balcony with a beer and simply sitting on the couch with a book and tea. Being in the absolute present moment. Right here and now.
I remember the moon we stood under that day on the Island. Giving voice to your wishes and hopes. Now nine months later, under a similar moon, we reunite and hold that beautiful dream in our arms.❤️ #dreamscometrue#moon#miracle
