ImEsprit, Esprit, Freddie Harrel. Nicole Hertel

ESPRIT, PURPOSE & FREEDOM

I’m a big believer of signs, especially when it comes to personal reflection.

We’re moving back to London this month (yaay), but with the work trips and tight deadlines, Hugo’s determination to nail his rolling skills (we basically have a restless baby), there’s a lot going on.
