Can’t even believe the year of 2014 has come to an end. It flew by super fast and here I am reminiscing. I love the fact that I have this blog, it allows me to look back at the good and bad times. It’s life and it goes up and down. That’s what this year has been for me, up and down. I’ve had some great moments and a few bad ones as well. Thankfully more good than bad, many more good than bad. I’ve learned how to say No and stand my ground, I’ve also learned to put myself first in certain situations. I’ve traveled and spent time with some amazing people. I’ve realized even more how much my family means to me and how much love is there. Overall it’s been a great year I must say because I choose to think about the positives instead of negatives.
I’m looking forward to 2015 and what it has in store for me. I’m turning 30 in seven days and that is a huge milestone in itself.
I wish my family, friends, my blogging friends and everyone else around the globe a happy and prosperous 2015.
I’ll end this year of blogging with some of my favorite pictures of 2014.
Met up with two of my faves this evening. First I had coffee with S. Always a great time! She actually applied for a position at my job and I would love for her to get it. Would make going to work so much more fun! She’d be sitting in the office next to me…it would be a dream come true.
Then I drove across town and met up with Ami at the mall. She was gonna show me this skirt att Zizzi and I ended up picking up three item, I show you what in a post this weekend. 🙂 so check back for that. After a bit of shopping we had some sushi and froyo while catching up on the latest happenings.
We pretty much closed down the mall. It was scary walking in the garage after hours.
So last week I told you about my cousin visiting from the US.
My weekend started by taking the afternoon off thursday and making the 2.5 hour drive to my hometown. We had a fun afternoon/evening and Amira and I stayed up until 2AM just catching up. Woke up early Friday and worked from home all day, before a bite to eat and some shopping in Linköping, my bff Ada joined us aswell. It was superfun seeing her.
That evening we drove to Oskarshamn where our family lives, first stop was my cousin’s house. We sat in the backyard and had a BBQ dinner before playing football and basketball with the kids. Of course we also watched the World Cup games on TV. It was another late night. Saturday morning after breakfast we packed up and headed to the lake. Played there for a while before heading to my aunt’s house for lunch. There I got a major headache because I got water in my ear from jumping into the water with the kids, they dared me, I had to. The next few hours I spent trying to get the water out. I tried every method I could find online. Alcohol in your ear, a blow dryer, jumping on one foot, more water in your ear, laying down on the trampoline while the kids jumped on it. NOTHING worked. Laid down for a while and then took a painkiller before heading to my other cousins house. Another BBQ dinner and then it was time for the Holland-Costa Rica game. At half time we went back to my cousin’s house, where I was sleeping and watched the rest of the game. Woke up around 10 on Sunday and after breakfast headed back to my other cousins house for some coffee before hitting the road and going back home to my sister’s house. Went by dad’s summer-house to mow the lawn and also hung out with my cousins for a while before driving back home to my house. Got home pretty late, jumped in the shower and then went to bed. Couldn’t fall asleep until 2AM.
Great weekend with my family is just what I needed. This coming weekend I’m going to Gothenburg and next week I’m off to Bosnia, can’t wait! Hope you all had a great weekend as well.
PS. Hi to my daily reader from Brazil, I think I know who you are… 😉
“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side.” ♥
A year ago I met this girl called Dina. She came into my life through work. My first impression of her wasn’t totally wrong but it was a bit off, I have to admit. From the first time we said Hi, I knew she was level-headed, strong-minded and could speak her mind. And those are all qualities I love in a person. In the time since we’ve known each other we’ve gotten really close. She has been a great and loyal friend. She’s been there for me through thick and thin, in all aspects of life.
I’m thankful and blessed to have a friend like YOU!
Still sick and that = not being motivated to actually write. Trying to find a way back to posting every day but it’s hard. Hoping everything goes back to normal once I’m better!
A lot is going on and the next few months are gonna be very busy. I’m gonna bring you along.
Also, just wanna state this. My blog is not my main thing in life. I do this because I think it’s fun but I don’t see it as a must or a way of making a living for myself. Therefore, everyone that has an opinion on my updates and when I should do them, or what I should write about. Your opinion doesn’t matter to me. Do you and I’m gonna do me and post when I feel like it and write exactly what I want!
And to everyone that keeps checking back every single day, even when I’m not posting, Thank You!
