colorful little casa

how gorgeous is this little house?

I love how theres nothing over-the-top about this pretty little house, it even has an odd little shape yet it adds to its uniqueness. The most beautiful thing is the flowers growing around the house, just plain beautiful. The colors of purple, yellow, blue, and beige contrast against each other and pop out complimenting to its beauty.  This picture is by Wil Zoetekouw and he shot it while driving to San Fransisco from Los Angeles.  Zoetekouw explains, he just couldn't resist taking a picture of this beautiful little house tucked in between other ordinary houses, well who can blame him? This picture has been saved as a favorite on flickr and weheartit.com by many people, which makes me wonder if one day it'll reach its owner. I hope it does, and they smile when they see the hundreds of people admiring their gorgeous colorful little casa :)

So since I was little I was in loveeee with the name Isabella. When I was fourteen I wrote on my daily planner all my favorite girl and boy names. At the very top I circled Isabella. I was sure that one day I will have a little girl with rosy cheeks and long hair that resembled me and she would be named Isabella. As the years went by, nothing changed. When my sister was pregnant four years ago, searching for a name, I told her I have always loved Isabella and one day will name my child this. She forgot and almost named her daughter Isabella, but because her husband did not have a good association with the name, they settled for Anabella. I told my friends the story, who have known me for years and have heard of my love for Isabella. Unfortunately, one of them loved the name a little too much. I remember when I told her the story of how my precious adorable Anabella was almost named Isabella, she told me the name was beautiful. She is pregnant now, and her baby girl is due in July and she will be naming her- yes you probably guessed it- Isabella. I can't help but pout like little girl at the thought of it :(
Oh well...I'm far from having a baby so I will have to search for a name when the time comes...Yet I'm still all sour, I feel like I'm ten again- the first time I remember hearing the name and thinking it was perfect. Ugh! :/ I guess I will feel better when my friend gives birth and I meet baby Isabella and see that it was the perfect name for her :)

if I can live anywhere else in the world it would be....

20090316004903I'm just in love with everything about it. I love its old white-washed structures with its blue doors, domes and details. Its arquitecture is gorgeous with so many homes, temples and monuments congested together. And the scenery? There are just no words to describe it, is just breathtaking, and I have not even experience it with my own eyes. I can just see myself walking through its little narrow passages through its mountainous ranges that slice into celestial waterscapes- can you say heaven? I just love its mountainous landscapes and the feeling of looking down and being able to capture so much, opening a window and staring into its sapphire blue Mediterranean waters, and having everything so clustered together. There's so much nature and so much history in every corner. I love how every angel seems to face somewhere, and just by going out to your balcony you can see your neighbor's door, you look up and see another neighbor's balcony, and you look to the side and something else is there, you take a few steps and you are at their place. As much as I love my New York City, I cant say that much about its views. Looking out my bedroom window all I see is concrete and some other tight-closed windows. Looking out through my kitchen I have a decent view of tall and short buildings all around me and a few greens and blues, but mostly everything is shades of brown and gray concrete arquitecture. I most say our nights are gorgeous, with all our twinkling lights and bright signs but I most say I'll give it all up for some clean air, warm-sea breezes and peaceful ethereal scenes. I don't think I'll ever find a place more beautiful than Greece with all its mazes of intriguing little streets with hidden treasures. I need to visit here one day but I need minimum a whole week of strolling around its narrow stone-step streets, and it's charming terraces, gorgeous courtyards, romantic restaurants, and of course relaxing and enjoying its to-die-for celestial sceneries. These pictures don't even capture all the rest you can find of gorgeous Greece.
