I originally started a blog called Musings in Red, but I soon realized that I had to split my dear blog in two. My plan was to start this inspirational blog and a book review blog, The Hipster Owl’s Bookshelf.
And, voilà ! “Parasol Dreams” was born.
This name was inspired by two things. First, I live in Seattle where it rains 99.7% of the time. It seems as if I always carry around some sort of umbrella! Second, I never want to be ” too old” to dream about pretty things.
This blog will be a simple corner where I share all dainty things that inspire me. Things like parasols. Cupcakes. A good cup of coffee. Photography. Films. Music. Art.
At the same time, this blog will also be a simplistic chronicle of my adventures since moving into this new city. When I first popped into Seattle almost a year ago, I literally had only two suitcases and about $30. It wasn’t a very well planned decision! I sort of winged it. But even though it’s been harder than I imagined and I’ve lived through a lot of crazy, I believe it was worth it.
Hence Parasol Dreams, my humble attempt to create an artistic interpretation of this, my life. Nothing big, just a little haven of peace and beauty. Welcome.
P.S. If you speak Spanish, my native tongue, I’d love to have you visit my Spanish blog, La Pluma del Quetzal.
