A new home – a story that is to be continued

new home the island

I mentioned in my latest posts that we have moved. But its not only story of joyfulness topped with stress of packing up a household. It is more a continuing struggle and some legal issues on the horizon. So what happened you may wonder. Well, grab a coffee of coffee or tea and continue reading.

When we returned from our vacation in summer 2021 from the Baltic Sea we were hit with a loud city, a real reality check. Within just a few hours I had developed a migraine, Mr. ♡ was anxious because of the noise and we fled the city around dinner time to enjoy the evening at the lake. It made us think and we figured it’s time for a change.

Slowly slowly trying to get back. Did you realize I have been absent for the past two months? It was definitely not planned. I knew with the move early April it will be tough to blog but I didn’t expect a two months break. But you know… sometimes life just throws you a curveball and adds a bow on top. I think I will tell you all about the happenings in two separate posts – just for my own sanity. But todays post is a fresh start. A new beginning and I am happy to restart. So let’s dive in and see how I celebrated life in March and April.


February Celebrations – Monthly Recap

Just typing the title feels wrong when you look at the last few days and what is happening in Ukraine. How can I celebrate? How can we be happy? How can we carry on? Not sure but we will somehow. And maybe to keep living is especially important and that we keep on celebrating and enjoying life. Here is my attempt of February celebrations and the monthly recap.


January Celebrations – Monthly Recap

How has the first month of 2022 already flown by? How was it for you? Still trying to ease in or already stomping your way through projects goals and life? For me 2022 took off in high speed. Job projects kept me on my toes. The hunt for a new home is getting serious. The health is off to a rocky start. But I am feeling good and able to keep the balls up in the air – for now. Let’s hope it stays that way. Let’s dive into January Celebrations.

I plan on celebrating my way through this year as it is fitting for my word of the year. I decided to still keep my goals and intentions post but spice it up a bit. Having intentions for the upcoming month is very helpful to keep track on were I want to end. up by the end of the month. It is not really a to-do list (some things are though) but more guiding me to the right direction. I don’t stress about not having it all done but I do believe if I only take on step to fulfilling a certain thing I am one step closer. I may still be lightyears off from achieving but yeah I am moving and not on a standstill.


My new favorite Spot

I finally did it. It took me only a total of eight years. To find my new favorite spot? No, that is only the final result. It took me eight years to finish my “craft lab” aka my now home office. The first time I talked about this space here was back in 2013. I was writing my blog in German back then. My thinking process about the color scheme is one of the most visited posts.

In one of my previous NaBloPoMo postings I talked about the fear of a blank space and why I think I can not tackle this project. The project of having a blank room and can do basically anything. I had put this task on my to-do list. On my yearly intentions list and even on my 1000 in 101 bucket list. This year I gave it another go. Probably because of Covid and I was staring at the chaos every.single.day. during my video calls. So I finally fixed the ugly corner.
