Discovering Magic

I believe Santa has left the North Pole! One more night to wait. If you're mom to little children you must feel the urge like I do. My Christmas would really not be the same without my little girls. I love the sincere faith and enthusiasm that evoke my spirit as well. Once again we've discovered the magic together!

"Children see magic because they look for it.” ~Christopher Moore


With these random winter pictures I truly wish you a Merry Christmas 2014!

A Christmas Wish

Rush, haste and hustle. That's my December. I'm trying to slow down in the evenings, making slow plans, dreaming of quite holidays and family time. Dreaming of brighter days and snow. Finding solace in the lyrics of Christmas songs.

It may happen that this is my only post in December or at least before Christmas.
So I'm wishing you a very merry Christmas! 
Enjoy

November Memories & Pure Picturesque - Free Printable Calendar {December 2014}

The days are getting colder, have a warm heart 

It's time to a look at our November. My month in photos shows bright and white but in fact this month has been darker than ever! The met says we've had about 10 hours of sunshine in November this year. And I feel it, unfortunately. We are desperately waiting for Christmas, snow, peace and longer days eventually.



Here is your free printable calendar template for December.
Thanks for all the downloads - this has been a pleasure and I'll try to find the time to create a free printable calendar for 2015 as well.

First Snow

It's all gone now but I'm happy to have captured it so we can look back and enjoy it. The first snow is always such a miracle.

When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season, I'll know I'm growing old. 
- Lady Bird Johnson





This night time shot is blurry, messy and totally out of focus. And I love it. That's the magic of first snow.

My latest crush {Creating with Animoto}

I've been wanting to do this for so long! I just didn't know how. Until I discovered Animoto. With Animoto you can make videos from photos and video-clips easily and save your life's events in a beautiful and fun way. Animoto is free for personal use with limited features. In the end I needed the Plus plan to get my video done but it's worth it. All plans include unlimited video creation and sharing. 

My video is actually a little gift for my girls. Thus they are surprisingly delighted about it right now; I figure they will appreciate it even more when getting older. Anyway it’s so much fun to watch this together. My little personal photo essay ♡ 

Here is what I created. Be sure to have volume turned up. These things are always more powerful with music!

Let if fall

My Friday Finds... a few beautiful lines. Happy Friday you all 


Whatever we’ve lost
I think we’re gonna let it go
Let it fall
Like snow

'Cause rain and leaves
And snow and tears and stars¨
And that's not all my friend
They all fall with confidence and grace
So let if fall, let it fall

Sometimes I drift

Sometimes I drift. Feeling tired, uninspired or even a little hopeless. I just thumb through my pictures thinking back all the memories I've captured. Recreating collages, reliving special moments, wasting my time in pictures, getting lost in visual comfort. So here I am again. Sharing some of my favorites.

October Memories & Pure Picturesque - Free Printable Calendar {November 2014}

The haste of October has been incredible. And suddenly it's almost November that will be full booked as well. So we’re here, trying to remember to breathe. Luckily we've had enjoyable weekends, some calming nights, a few hours here and there to calm down, bake, read and love. Something to hold tight to. In the midst of this all is the simple fact that things don’t always work out just the way you think they should. Those days may be frustrating, but I’m thankful I’m here to spend those minutes just the same. I wish you happy November 2014!





And here is your free printable calendar template for October.

Today

Rain, sneezes and constant yawns. That's all I hear today. My body aches because of all the raking yesterday and I've allowed myself to do nothing today... expect finishing the second novel  for the weekend. Also a perfect day for wool socks, hot chocolate and editing. 

"The earth has music for
those who listen."
-Shakespeare
