Celebrations are sacred when you get to spend them in your favorite place, and timeless when you get to be surrounded by your very loved ones, sharing their laughter with you.

Unknown-12The invitation.

Last week I turned 40 in one of the most magical places on earth, Marrakech, with my family and friends, who joined me in my journey. My love story with the city of Marrakech started when I traveled there for the birthday of my very close friend Francesco Carrozzini last year.

From then on, I knew I wanted to go back with everyone around me to celebrate life, colors, people, chaos, kindness, summer, and, above all, purity. I will always remember the long weekend of May 22 to 25 as a new step into a life full of surprises and joy…I wish everyone these same feelings and a lifetime of shared happy memories.
