As someone who loves heights, seeing Sevilla from the top of the Giralda and the setas was just the cherry on top. I spent the first few days wandering the streets-- getting lost among the flower boxes and admiring the brightly painted walls. I had no idea that they'd look so beautiful from so high up.

I've always had an affinity for the bird's eye view but I couldn't really explain it until looking back at these photos. When I'm up close and everything is "normal," I look for the small details-- the moments, the glances, the soft breaths.  I think they all represent something bigger, so I fixate on them, trying to solve the puzzle.

But from up above, it's a new view. A fresh start. I have to look at everything as a whole. As a collection of those small moments and glances and soft breaths. As the "something bigger." And the puzzle finally feels complete.

I can't believe I'm home. I can't believe I'm in my own bed. I can't believe I'm BLOGGING.

Please pardon the unintentional two-month hiatus. If you follow along on Instagram, you might know I spent some time in Dublin and Sevilla, and am now living in Portland for the next few months (I'm cherishing a short weekend at home for a wedding).

I don't have much to say about Sevilla, other than that it was beautiful and I'm so fortunate to have been able to visit my sweet friend, Cecilia. I shared more photos and some words over at The Exploress earlier this week.

I'm saying this is "Sevilla, Part One" with the complete intention of adding a "Part Two." As busy as things have become, seeing my photographs and taking the time to share them has become a mini-vacation in itself-- one I hope to get back into the habit of again soon.

I miss this space! If there's anyone still out there, I hope this finds you well.
