Olá, eu sou a Joana - a cara por detrás do The Paper and Ink. Vinte e muitos anos, natural e residente da belíssima cidade do Porto, sou uma fotógrafa e blogger que em 2009 criou este espaço em busca de uma maneira de dar a conhecer ao mundo a minha voz, as minhas ideias e paixões. O TPI é um lifestyle blog, ou seja, é um pouco de tudo o que marca a minha vida, me apaixona e que acredito ser importante partilhar.

Make a Wish

Imagine waking up in the morning, your arm stretched under your
pillow and in your hand a red envelope with your name in it.
Imagine the exctiment you feel, while getting up from your bed, opening up the windows, letting
the sun come right in, shining on every wall and you see the name of a dear friend
in it.

Now, imagine you open up the letter and dozens of stars fall into your arms, your lap
and even on the floor, and the only thing you do is smile. Then inside you have
a folded paper and over it a pretty post-it telling you to make a wish.

Yes,this was real,this happened and it made me smile through the whole day.
You pick up the stars put them back on the envelope and go to peak at them
everytime you feel a little more down and then and there you find an instant smile to
proudly wear for hours or day!

Thank you to Lely, who did this for me, who wrote a letter that made me smile
and put stars inside so i could make a wish.

Now is your turn,make a wish and smile!!!
