Still catching up on #lovetober, here’s day 16: A big dream. For the longest time, my big dream was my own #yoga studio, but that really morphed into “just” wanting a house. Preferrably an unusual one like this one, in a green and quiet neighbourhood (with excellent Internet reception, hahaha). If I had all the money in the world, I would buy a cool #space and hire an interior designer to decorate it… I can dream, right? ;)

I got stuck on my #lovetober assignment of day 15 - I just couldn’t make up my mind regarding the day’s #payitforward task. Please excuse if this is slightly off topic because it’s not regarding a stranger, but Chris, an old friend of mine. Together with his buddy Lex, he founded tagpacker.com - a free tool that will let you sort and organize your favourite links. Chris and Lex have spent the better parts of their last years improving @tagpacker, and it has become this amazing thing that I have been lucky enough to be part of as digital strategist in the last couple of weeks. Check it out if you have a minute and tell your friends if you like it - we’d really appreciate it! 💙

New #vintage toy. 😍 #Flip has been out of business for a while now, but I was looking for a compact #camcorder to carry around - the iphone just doesn’t do it for lack of memory. Got a reaaaaaaaally good deal on #craigslist for this one. #happycamper #toronto

#lovetober day 14: a beautiful place… There are so many! But I do have to say that I was very positively surprised by #Bonn, a German city I visited for the first time ever in spring. I can definitely recommend a trip, very interesting with some pretty things to see. #germany #rhein #ufer #latergram

#lovetober day 13, the task is ‘I’m obsessed!’ and @thezigsdog’s #squirrel obsession has totally taken a hold of me. 🍂 Every time I see one these days (and there are MANY where we live), I want to run after it. Uh-oh!

Made my first Caldo de Pollo (Mexican chicken #soup) in lieu of an actual #Thanksgiving dinner. I have to say it tasted sooooo good! Definitely a recipe for the keeping. 😍

#lovetober day 11: #jump! Here’s a #selfie from 2007. I took it in my dorm room in #london after I had discovered the #photobooth on a new #macbook.

#lovetober day 10: #inspiration. This one was hard for me, as I believe that word has been awfully overused lately; I get good ideas from so many things and conversations. Since we’ve had @thezigsdog, though, I’ve been enjoying #park walks, and also the runs @icecreamshirt and I go on. I find that once I stick my head in fresh air, new thoughts come up all the time. #canada #oxygen

#lovetober day 9: my favourite colour. It would have to be #mauve… Or #petrol. As seen in this shot from our trip to #switzerland earlier this year. #architecture #mountains #exploreswitzerland #melchseefrutt

Today’s #lovetober assignment: #streetart. Here’s a detail of a #mural created by Diego Rivera. I shot the pic in #mexicocity last January. #art #mexico #travel

Yesterday’s #lovetober task was #thankfulness. Here’s a random list of things I’m thankful for: 🐶 All you awesome people. I’m so #happy I get to #write to an audience. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do. 🐶 My #family - old and new, two and four legs. #Life never gets old. 🐶 The ability to #travel. Being young and healthy is #awesome. 🐶 All things interesting to #read and #see. Thank you for coming up with that. 🐶 My #friends, always. 🐶 Professional #freedom. Not being stuck in a lonely, impersonal office, slaving away. 🐶 New opportunities. Good things come to those who #hustle. 🐶 Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’m behind on my #lovetober list. Two days ago, they wanted a pic of my bookshelf. I’ve posted that on here before (books sorted by colours), so this time I’m going with a detail of this #buddha. A beautiful wedding gift given to us by @mulayogato. Thanks so much again, Hana! :)

@icecreamshirt and I are back on YouTube with a bunch of outtakes. If you feel like having a laugh, go to http://bit.ly/1pOvGmv

#lovetober day 5 asks for my daily mantra. How about another #quote from my upcoming #poetry collection #underwaterdawn instead? #unterwasserdämmerung

#lovetober day 3: #photobooth. Sorry for the recent #selfie flood - this one was too on point not to share, thoughü: me at #13 in #Frankfurt, #Germany. #adidas #oldschool #acne #1996
