Week 7/52.

Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we're from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.


This week I've spent bedridden. Flu. Not exactly what I'd call perfect timing. This week my husband and I had vacation, our first week off together with no kids this year and also the week of our wedding anniversary. Out of all the weeks of the year I had to get the flu this week, and quite a bad case. So this shot was my view for the week. 


But you know what? That's life. It is what it is. Sometimes life throws us curveballs. It's going to happen, no one can avoid it. Sometimes it's something small like the flu, sometimes it's something big like the death of loved one. It is just all matter of how you handle those curveballs when they come - your attitude, your perspective. Life is short. The more positive you can see it the better it will be.

I knew from the moment we met that it'd be a lasting friendship. Kindred spirits. It was as if we had always known each other. Like family. My dear friend Madalena of my personal coffee break. When she's not busy running her own company, she is out exploring new places, jogging or enjoying a great cup of joe. I am sure you will adore her as much as I do. Please take a moment to check out her "Perfect Timing" photo from this week: "weekend goodness"
