Hey there, how are you? Have you spent the last four days in a chocolate food coma that you’ve only woken up from to eat some more chocolate? If that is the case, I congratulate you: you have done Easter right. Although my weekend didn’t quite look like that, I still had an absolutely lovely time (and don’t worry, there was still enough chocolate involved. Obviously). Continue reading
I know it sounds absolutely lame and everyone always says the exact same thing, but can you believe how quick another year has passed? It has always been weird for me how time seems to go by faster and faster every year until someone recently told me something, that explains it all and makes perfect sense: relative to the time we have already lived, a year will always become shorter and shorter. So for example if you are two years old, one year is half of your life. If you are twenty, one year is only five percent of your life. Makes sense? It kind of does to me, but at the same time, it’s pretty scary because it means that the years will pass by even quicker. But enough of that now, before I get my brain into a knot.
Merry Christmas Eve to all you lovely people out there!
I hope you are already celebrating, spend time with people and eat lots and lots of good food – I know that’s what I did today!
This evening is not a time to read blog posts that are the length of a short novel so I’m going to leave you with a picture of our Christmas tree. It doesn’t get more festive than that, right?
One benefit that comes with having a blogging-buddy who’s also your buddy in real life is the fact that when it comes to Christmas, you get to exchange presents and then blog about it because on the internet, that’s a totally legit thing.
Woah guys, we’ve almost made it to Christmas! How are you all doing?
Yesterday was another blogmas-fail (I’m so sorry!) so I’m going to publish yesterday’s post today and we can all forget about the fact that I have missed four days of blogmas so far. But hey, these things happen.
Here in Switzerland, we celebrate on Christmas eve. The candles on the Christmas tree are burning, we eat delicious food and that’s also when we get our presents. When I was little, me and my siblings used to – like a lot of children – get toys for Christmas. I also got given quite a lot of books if I remember correctly. We usually wouldn’t start playing with our new toys straight away as there was still the Christmas dinner to be eaten and by the time the last piece of dessert was eaten, we were so tired that we just went to bed. Because of that, the morning after (so on the actual Christmas day) was always very special. We would wake up early, go down to the living room and give all our presents a proper second inspection. I remeber the feeling in the room, the smell from blown out candles and the tree still lingering in the air, wrapping paper all over the floor and a very peaceful, calm athmosphere.
This might not be a grand memory of something spectacular that happend but it’s one thing that I remember best and even today, on Christmas morning, when there’s that exact smell in the air, I get taken straight back to little Anna, looking through her books and playing with her toys.
sorry for the absence of the last few days! Let me give you a little run down of the events I was supposed to be blogging about on Friday and yesterday: Friday, Noemi and I went to see the new Star Wars movie (don’t worry, there are no bloopers in this post). I can’t really say that I’m a big Star Wars fan – before Friday, I hadn’t seen a whole film from start to finish – but I must say that I quite enjoyed it! I love going to the cinema anyway and the film was really good, even for someone who’s not that into it. Continue reading
Today’s blog post was supposed to be a winter outifit. Trith is: I spent the last two days in my pj’s and tracksuit bottoms. Yesterday, I didn’t even leave our flat and today I only went out in order to go grocery shopping. So instead of showing you artsy fashion pictures, I’m going to take a look at basically how much better Christmas is when you are a child.
