My first spring and beginnings of summer after 7 years in our home in Nice, France. A huge garden to plant and grow that I loved! 💝 I think I gardened as much as I can on my Chgo balcony. Vino, now finding a resting spot on the balcony in the sun, rather than a large garden/yard or finding a cool breeze by the all the open doors; now resting on a wood floor (still by the rug that was in Nice 💝). Amazing music playing, sunshine and rose. Trying, but NOT the same. There is no dancing in the garden (even if just me), singing, next door neighbors saying “bonjour”, late nights pondering life with music, chats, St. Roman de Bellet wines and cuddles with a light blanket under the moon...My choice was to leave all these blessings I can’t get out of my grateful heart vs. remain silent and continue in an abusive relationship. I chose to leave and live. #fucklife But sometimes, I must admit, I wish I didn’t. #lifeofasurvivor #whatislife #ihadabeautifuldream #survivor #alone #gardenwasmylife #neverthesame #domesticviolenceawareness #basta #chateaubasta #hewoukdntgotoangermanagement #nochoice #ourfamilymeantnothing #narcissiscm #jerrygerald #thankyounot #Ihelpedcreatethatdream!
