Stress, is the word that comes to mind when I think of these two weeks that has passed. After procrastinating for a long time, my to do-list had grown immensely, and it was time to actually do something about it, instead of just thinking about doing things. Along with deadlines came stress, sleep deprivation and migraines, but I finally shortened the list. There are a few things left, but the worst part is over, and soon I can relax.

I have been thinking about things to get for spring, because my wardrobe needs a dose of something new. I definitely want some dresses, other than that I just don´t know. Also, when the ground is covered with snow, and the cold is unbearable at times, spring is nothing more than a fantasy.It feels like it will never be warm again, and the grass will never be green again. Thankfully, that is not the case. The question is when, when will it happen? Sooner than later, I hope.

My little girl is getting big. Today was the first day of her acclimatization period at preschool. It was quite exhausting spending a full day with a bunch of small children, but it was fun as well. Four more days of that, and the she is on her own. I am sure she will have a great time, but as a first-time parent I can´t help but being a bit overprotective. I know she is in good hands though. So, from next week, I will have more time for myself and time to do everything that I have been postponing. Exciting times lie ahead!

It has been really cold lately, too cold almost. If we didn´t have a fireplace in the house, it would have been unbearable. Last week, the snow came. It started to fall during one evening, and continued to do so all night, and the next day. Everything looked so soft, buried under  the snow, and all sounds became muted. Just magical. And the snow was perfect. Dry, crispy and lighter than air. Since it has been this cold, it is still dry and crispy and buries everything underneath it. The days have shown a clear blue sky, and sun that makes the snow sparkle. The perfect winter, if it wasn´t this cold. Thankfully, I have my wonderful christmas present to keep me warm.

Bonne Année

Another year has passed, and a decade has ended. It has been both good and bad, mostly good. It feels very strange to think of it though, that another decade has passed. It feels like such a long time in theory, yet it feels like this decade only started maybe two years ago. It is strange that it never felt like this when I was in school. Maybe it is a side effect of being and adult?

This year I started writing this blog, and it was a new experience. I didn´t really know in which direction I was going with this, and still don´t know. I just saw this as a learning experience, and a way to share my thoughts with other people, and take part of their thoughts. I know I have a lot to learn, and that it is probably better with more updates than less. Next year will hopefully be a better year when it comes to inspiration, but nonetheless I will try harder than this past year.

This post is about something else, though. I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has been reading this blog. It means a lot to me, and I appreciate it very much. I do hope everyone has a wonderful new years eve, and an even better year to follow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Happy New Year!
