Happy New Year & 2015 in review

End of the year always evokes bittersweet feelings. I’m swinging between happy and sad. It feels good to wrap a year that was as good as this one but a part of me doesn't want to let it go.... I worry. Time. It is passing much too swiftly. I realize my little ones, my muses, my children, are not so little anymore. But here we are again rewinding the year and I'm so happy to have captured it. To have pressed the shutter and saved these memories.

As every year I used Photobox (UK) to print my calendar. Last year was an exception but the quality wasn't so good and returned to Photobox and A3 Simple (which is their best seller). Delivery was late, but it finally arrived - just before new year.

We are sharing our December collages here! Join if you wish.

Here is my 2015 in pictures! 2016! Happy New Year everyone 

My resolutions:
Live simply.
Dream big.
Be grateful.
Give love.
Laugh lots.

A month in photos {December 2015}

As the year draws to a close, it's time to take a look back in December. As you know, we waited for the snow impatiently and did not receive any. We might be getting some for New Year but that remains to be seen. December was good - a festive wait of Christmas. I can't quite remember what it feels like to be a child on Christmas but I think it must be almost as exiting being a mother, making memories for my own children.

a month of lights, snow and feasts; time to make
amends and tie loose ends; finish off what you 
started and hope your wishes come true

And here we are. Putting together our last collage of the year! Thank you for travelling along and I most warmly welcome you back in 2016. See this post to find your 2016 free download Photo Calendar Template.

My this month favorite is taken by my sister. Me & my family on our home road.

Christmas ✮


Happy Christmas everyone!

It wasn't a white Christmas. 
But all those quiet hours we spent together inside were the real beauty of the Holiday.

Your Free Download Photo Calendar Template for 2016

Time really flies and suddenly Christmas is just around the corner. December has it very own spark which has just grown while having two little ones in my life. Unfortunately we are still missing snow.... The darkness is becoming almost unbearable. Every candle and light is appreciated now as we wait the snow to enlighten our days and continue to dream of white Christmas.

It's been a super busy past few weeks at work but today after getting home I took the time to put up the design I had in my mind for 2016 Photo Calendar Template. I hope you like it!

Feel free to download here!

I will continue my month in photos project next year as usual and I invite you to join me to share your monthly collages on my blog in the very end of every month.
