A song for you

There is a heart on the wall of my bedroom. It is a red cutted heart from a plastic sort of paper. I got it from my best friend (A) on high school. There is a sentence on it, she once wrote, that has almost been disappeared because it's almost 15 years old. The most intense friendship I ever had was with her. The day she came over to my camping in a summer during our friendship we made memories I will never forget. She sang for me on a climbing frame. It was the song 'Breakfast' from K'S Choice. We swam without our bikini tops for the first time in a lake. We played badminton. We talked 'baby skill' French under an umbrella while it was not raining at all. And we lay for ours listening to music of the cassette in the gettoblaster in a room of the tent, the tent we shared with my brothers. While I was hoping the moment would never stop.
These memories are the foundation of my blog and the key name 'Camping Grown Ups' that I've made up which you can see a lot on Hola Bola Babes. 
And than: there is this moment of last night. I was checking my Facebook and an article of the website 'Vice' came by with the photoshoot of Olivia Lonsdale and Eeva de Frel. It caught my attention immediately and brought me back to her (A). Yes I miss the way life was at that time. And I miss the friendship I got with her. The intense synergy we got made us strong and joyfull. The first time I saw Olivia Lonsdale (online) she hypnotized me, I must say. She is my newest favourite Camping Grown Up.

Have a great countdown!

Keep on dreaming and realizing your plans for 2015!
Already looking forward to create and discover more camping grown ups!
*movie quote: It's a wonderful life(1946)*

G: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Justsay the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary.
Mary: I'll take it. Then what?
G: Well, then you can swallow it, and it'll all dissolve, see... and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair...?
This last image is one of my favorite 'camping grown up' for ever and everlasting. If 2015 can beat it, it must be like heaven.
