I bought this domain 13 months ago. Maybe sooner. Probably closer to the date I met Mister Forêt rather than the date we actually wed. Coincidentally, those dates are only 5 months apart so we'll just say sometime in 2014. Buying and owning christinaforet.com was my top priority after falling in love. We live in an interesting age.
The past 13 months have been everything I never knew how to dream of. We spent our first 3 months of marriage traveling from Nepal to Hawaii to California and getting some rest in the middle of nowhere Missouri- one of our wedding gifts was an amazing honeymoon home in Marthasville, MO. We moved into our first home together in January of 2015 and we are still moving in. We have books in the office stacked against the wall 2.5 ft tall- we discovered the perfect height of a book tower that doubles as a mail holder. Life is never quite as tidy and put together as instagram would like it to be. When it almost is, we start another messy project and and then other before that one is cleaned up.
I was away more often than I was home this year. Traveling is a luxury and I am thankful. But, home is also a luxury. Community is a luxury. So, here we are in Asheville, North Carolina. Writing, photographing, loving and learning. Always learning. This space is where I will document our days, give thanks, share ideas and most importantly where my dreams come to life.
