Midweek Musings

Bank Holiday. So welcome and greatly enjoyed. Midweek holidays always feel more special and appreciated than normal weekends or Sundays. I'm thankful for this special day, the sun and the spring. I found the time to to read, to have tea on the sofa, to bake some surprise strawberry muffins, to write my first action in Photoshop (!) and even to do nothing for a while...

Mothers Day 2015

Happy Mothers Day!

Mine has been so happy with self-made presents, white roses, cheese cake (made by my husband), wood anemones, sunshine, refreshing wind, camera and LOVE.

Sakura love ♡

I'm so excited to see the cherry trees bloom again. I was literally shaking when pushing the shutter over and over again. Capturing these beauties is an annual tradition and always such a pleasure!
I'm overwhelmed by this beauty... I'm so enchanted by their soft delicate petals, the sight that I had almost lost during the long year. This love grows year after year. Sakura love

A month in photos {April 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

April came and so did the spring. Unfortunately we spent most of this beautiful month being sick. Nevertheless we are fine now and this beautiful Thursday on the last day of April is going to be our little spring celebration. And with celebration I mean a little run, sauna with kids, ice cream, TV and and a good night sleep. And a glass of wine ;)

"The only difference between 
an extraordinary life and ordinary one
is the extraordinary pleasures 
you find in ordinary things"
- Veronique Vienne

This picture of me and my girls taking a Saturday walk in the forest was my this month favorite.

Sunshine and smiles

I'm grateful for my photography and how it encourages me to slow down and take the time to notice hat makes today special. My photography is my journal for documenting the daily changes, soak it all in and create these memories for my children. I'm so grateful for these precious moments that go by so fast: Saturdays, sunshine and smiles. And that I will be able to look back at them.

Heavy wind, absent mind and tiny blue flowers

for whatever we lose
(like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves
we find in the sea

Today was a windy day. And yesterday was windy too. I don't remember if it was the same on the day before that, but even if it wasn't, it's storming inside my head anyway.

There are so many things... happening or about to happen. The spring, tiny blue flowers and the whole rebirth of nature. The chaos in the living room, me sitting there on the corner of the couch with poetry or prose and sometimes being unsure about what's actually fact and what's fiction. I'll have to pinch myself to realize that I've actually thrown away those favorite jeans (that haven't fit me for seven years) and that I've resigned from my current day-job.

This is all good. For once in while I really need to blow my own damn mind.

I'll smile in May

I'm restless.
Things are calling 
me away. My hair is 
being pulled by the 
stars again.

-Anais Nin

Past weeks have been disasters. In addition to kids being sick all the time I've personally attained two gastroenteritis, two flues and two sinusitis in past five weeks. No need to say that this really sucks. Being sick is the biggest waste of time in the wold. Especially in spring. There was Easter, warm weekends, canceled plans and million thing to do. The sun isn't a comfort at the time. It just underlines the fact that everything is bright and vital. Everything but me.

And before you say it...
I know it could be worse and there is a new day tomorrow! I'll smile in May.
