At the beginning of this year I decided to go easy on the resolutions, so much so that I ended up not having any planned for 2014, I was never good at sticking to them anyway. The only wish I had for myself was to relax more and just be happy. Happy as in finding reasons to smile in even the smallest of things, every single day, no matter what. Giving my past tendency to over-think, overstress and worry about everything, this little exercise of happiness helped tons in improving my general mood, in made me appreciate it all at a different level and I learned to be grateful for every single moment, with all the good and the bad.
“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
This L.M. Montgomery quote kind of defines fall days for me, particularly once the colder weather begins to settle in and all I want to do is hide at home and surround myself with delicious food, coffee, flowers, books and my two favorite boys. It’s days like these when I feel that life is most beautiful when it’s cherished in all its simplicity. It’s days like these when I realize I don’t need much to be happy. And it’s a day like this that I want to share with you today. Because it’s too cold outside to be shooting outfits and because I love it home.
After a few days of rest, of intensively watching “The Killing”, of reading and thoroughly enjoying what felt like short amounts of rain spread over an extremely hot couple of evenings, I finally got my batteries recharged once again. I tend to escape the world like this, once in a while, leave Facebook, instagram, unread mails behind and enjoy nothing but the company of my husband and of our adorable little furball. I cherish these moments, but resuming my activity after such a break feels wonderful nonetheless.
A broken doll, that’s the first thing I thought about upon watching these pictures we shot the other week. It must be the constant movement, the way I walk, something pointing me in that direction. I remember it being awfully hot that afternoon, so I moved a lot out of fear of actually melting. The shoot didn’t last long, hence the small amount of pictures. Halfway to the weekend, I’m wishing you to enjoy the last days of summer ♥
This past week my schedule has been filled to the brim and between work, wedding appointments,shopping and house chores, I didn’t even realize when the days flew by. Suffice to say I haven’t found the time to take pictures for an outfit post or attend the Feeric Fashion Days, although I had high hopes for both. I always knew the month before the wedding was going to be crazy, but I still planned on being around the blog for as much as possible. Sometimes I manage quite alright, at others I struggle and I end up feeling guilty.
In a perfect world, I would probably be doing it all, but if the past few days taught me anything is that I should really be taking things slow whenever possible and enjoy these moments as they are never coming back. So, no outfit today, but instead I decided to share with you little bits of life lately, a few goodies and I thought that maybe you missed Puss, who recently explored endless fields of grass for the first time, which somehow explains his terrified expression. Not so brave in the real world my sweet boy ♥ ♥ ♥
It’s been a while since I photographed stuff for the blog, but instead of an outfit post, today I decided to play upon the spring atmosphere that got me all excited for the past few days. Maybe I should start by admitting that I absolutely love having flowers in the house and I got carried away while photographing these beautiful purple tulips. That’s why they’re present in all the pictures, without exception, not that I mind.
Five days it’s a long time for me to go without a new post and I apologize for the lack of activity here on the blog lately. But since I’m experiencing what might be the busiest time of the year for me, filled with deadlines, projects, to-do lists, visits to the vet and so on, I can hardly find any time to relax, much less to go out and take pictures. I guess I just haven’t figured out the perfect way to balance it all yet, that’s why some days I manage to complete everything with success, while others I feel like the more I do, the farther I get from having it it all rounded. Does that even make sense to you?
Hello everybody! Sorry for the lack of posts these past couple of days, but since getting back yesterday, I was hardly able to find any free time to catch up on everything I’m supposed to. Not to mention how super-tired I feel right now. I guess that’s what happens when you’re having too much fun! The wedding was wonderful, so was the little time I got to actually spend home, so thank you for your wishes Now it’s time to get back on track with work, blogging and the other daily adventures I love so much.
