Closing year! | My faves of 2014

Now is that time of year when we reflect on everything that’s happened the past 363-4-5 days and we make extraordinary resolutions for the next year arriving (the one when I'll get rich and famous). I want to say that i’m so grateful for everyone of you who visited this blog. THANK you! This is the year when I could go back to photography - I finally decided to buy a simple basic reflex and everything changed. Now I realize how much I was missing it.  Anyway, ...even if I'm a few words person..., I hope I could say something with my photos (maybe you're thinking it was better without photos and even without words) and I hope I could bring a little of inspiration to your day with my posts. 

Here’s some of the photos/posts I enjoyed most making this year…

Holiday DIY | Waiting the New Year

Dear friends, how was your Christmas? Mine was hygge, at home, warm, simple, comfortable, as I like it. This was my 14th Christmas with Lizzy - I'm so grateful for this! I found some beautiful ideas to make these days last longer like doing a winter potpourry, planting bulbs or  preparing a past year time capsule  + some diy to celebrate the new year coming.

Christmas good energy | Secret Santa

This Christmas I wish you all  (...ok,) we all could spread good energy around. I just read the story of Secret Santa here - there is also a pdf version for kids (ready to be printed and colored)....

"Larry Dean Stewart 1948 – 2007 was the creator and original Secret Santa. Through his personal example over a twenty year period, he demonstrated and defined the role and mission of Secret Santa.
"Secret Santa's" random acts of kindness over the years had an impact on people throughout the world who either were beneficiaries or who read in media reports his random acts of kindness and giving; especially three months before his death in January 2007 when his personal identity was made public." more

Here and here two last-minute nice inspiring stories to read!
See you next week with Christmas lunch and smart gift wrapping ideas:)
