Being a dad is...
...My Matching Mini Me...

#mymatchingminime
🇬🇧Last year, pretty much around the same time, I started a series of pictures called “Being a dad is...” and decided to stop posting them after a few weeks.
.
Instagram is a tricky things you know? It allows you to be so much more creative...and yet it restricts you to do what truly makes you happy because of engagement, likes, growth and etc...we are a bit obsessed by that, just in case you didn’t know yet haha! 🤓
.
And then, there is intimacy, what is OK to share and what is not...and especially why you want to share a part of your private life on social medias. I didn’t think I was quite ready to do that last year but I am now more confident, more mature and I must say that becoming a dad made me grow up more than I would have thought (and started to give me grey hair too but that’s a different story!)
.
Seeing how people like @allthatisshe or @sienna.and.i can be so creative and still put their kids’ interests and wellbeing on top of everything made me reconsider my choice. I am still not sure if that will lead to anything...but today I am simply happy to share a picture of him and I. That’s more than enough to brighten my days...and that’s all that matters, after all, right?
.
(Je poste la version en 🇫🇷 en story car Instagram ne me laisse pas assez de place pour le faire ici!)

🇬🇧And once again, it’s that time of the year: The magnolias are gone so are the wisterias...next step: Autumn leaves!! Just kidding! Let’s enjoy a bit more spring and summer too (well, if we actually got one this year!)

London is...
...the pink door of Kensington...
•
🇬🇧 The hysteria continues...! You have been quite a lot to ask me where to find some gorgeous wisterias in London lately! My favourite area to look for them would be between Notting Hill Gate and Earl’s Court! I know that’s a big piece of London 😉 but it’s also a beautiful walk to take if you have some time! Kensington is full of them...and if you are going today, you might see me around too! Look for the frizzy guy with a buggy and a camera, that’s definitely me haha!
.
🇫🇷 La folie continue...! Vous avez été très nombreux ces derniers temps à me demander où est-ce que je trouve ces jolies glycines. Mon quartier préféré pour les trouver se situe entre Notting Hill et Earl’s Court! Je sais, ça fait une bonne distance...! Mais c’est bel et bien là que vous trouverez les plus jolies...et en plus ça fait une chouette idée de promenade! D’ailleurs si vous êtes dans le coin aujourd’hui, vous m’y apercevrez peut-être!
