Summer holidays

School is over and it is time for summer holidays to start taking over our minds, specially if you have kids. I remember, when I was little June was the month to pack my bag and leave the city. I spent my summers in the countryside, enjoying nature mostly, having fun with other kids I met, but the greatest feeling was choosing a new book to read, because it was exactly like for Jerusha from Daddy Long Legs… “It’s much more entertaining to live books than to write them. ” And I really lived them – sometimes I was hunting for treasures, other times I was a poor girl finding magic in field flowers, so on and so on.

Here I gathered a list of my favorite summer literature adding photos I shot  on film a few days ago with my children spending an afternoon in our city apartment.
