Sunshine and smiles

I'm grateful for my photography and how it encourages me to slow down and take the time to notice hat makes today special. My photography is my journal for documenting the daily changes, soak it all in and create these memories for my children. I'm so grateful for these precious moments that go by so fast: Saturdays, sunshine and smiles. And that I will be able to look back at them.

Heavy wind, absent mind and tiny blue flowers

for whatever we lose
(like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves
we find in the sea

Today was a windy day. And yesterday was windy too. I don't remember if it was the same on the day before that, but even if it wasn't, it's storming inside my head anyway.

There are so many things... happening or about to happen. The spring, tiny blue flowers and the whole rebirth of nature. The chaos in the living room, me sitting there on the corner of the couch with poetry or prose and sometimes being unsure about what's actually fact and what's fiction. I'll have to pinch myself to realize that I've actually thrown away those favorite jeans (that haven't fit me for seven years) and that I've resigned from my current day-job.

This is all good. For once in while I really need to blow my own damn mind.

I'll smile in May

I'm restless.
Things are calling 
me away. My hair is 
being pulled by the 
stars again.

-Anais Nin

Past weeks have been disasters. In addition to kids being sick all the time I've personally attained two gastroenteritis, two flues and two sinusitis in past five weeks. No need to say that this really sucks. Being sick is the biggest waste of time in the wold. Especially in spring. There was Easter, warm weekends, canceled plans and million thing to do. The sun isn't a comfort at the time. It just underlines the fact that everything is bright and vital. Everything but me.

And before you say it...
I know it could be worse and there is a new day tomorrow! I'll smile in May.

A month in photos {March 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

March 2015 was exceptionally warm. I'm thankful we got to experience a little bit of spring and sun that normally attains our latitude only in April or even later. Nevertheless March was as long as it always seems to be and watching nature taking baby steps towards reborn and all this wait is once again testing my patience.

I walk slowly,
but I never walk
backward.
- Abraham Lincoln 


And here is my March favorite.

I believe

“I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love...I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

It must the Spring. I’m suddenly alive again. Bursting with ideas and projects, creating, living, being busy and even anxious. Once again, I apologize for the space between posts. I’m trying not to neglect the site, but sometimes it’s hard to find time for everything.

A month in photos {February 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

February: the first peaks of spring sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts, slowing down again and in the end of the day the warm breath on my neck when they curl up on my lap. Enjoy the little things.



My February favorite...

A month in photos {January 2015}

Welcome to share your month in photos!

I wish I could say January was about new beginnings, jolly days and breezy moments.
Instead it was... boring? Yes, but when these short dark days bring thoughts of gloom, I actually find some comfort and insight in my boring. Boring is good. What would be safer than boring?
My dear January - thank you for being boring 


This is my January favorite!

January days...

See, I made a post! I apologize for not showing up more often nowadays. It’s just that I haven’t had much to blog about and I’m still lacking a little inspiration… which does not mean I wouldn't take pictures. I shoot daily and sometimes share on my Facebook page, so if you wish you can follow me there! 

I think we'll all ride through phases of creative lulls and peaks, but sometimes, I worry about not having eager to blog, share or shoot, ever again. And as saying this I also know this happens with a camera, as in life, too. This is just how it goes. I still hope to see you here (or on Facebook) even I’m not as scheduled as I used to be.

But I will be here every last day of the month and I invite you too! I invite you to join me in my month in photos project next year! I'm having a linky party on the last day of every month to share your month in photos - preferably in collage but any other way is fine too. You can use my template if you wish – download here! To see more of my templates, visit my Template Shop.

So, I should go outside and snap in order to get something  for my January collage ;)
We've been spending time mainly indoors and I think these lines speak the best...

Love grows best in little houses,
with fewer walls to separate.
Where you eat and sleep so close together,
you cant help but communicate.
And if we had more room between us,
think of all we’d miss.
Love grows best in houses just likes this.

Here are some portraits that came to exist because of grey and cold January days inside our little house.
