12 months & 12 photos (2019)

This has become a sort of a tradition on my blog. Looking back at the year through 12 photos. A photo for each month of the year. The first time I posted my year in review was in 2016. You can check posts for 2017 and 2018 too if you wish so. 2019 is a year our family grew again. We’ve got now a baby girl and a 2 year old boy. And the cat has got used to all the children by now too 🙂

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Future

My dear friend Snow has started Friendly Friday Photo Challenge this year with Amanda. Since Snow has twins and a whole lot of other obligations she has to quit the challenge. So this is her last prompt: Future. This photography challenge will go on with Amanda and a new host Sandy .

This is my take on the prompt Future….

 

I hope we all have a sunny, bright future in 2020!

 

Thank you Snow for hosting the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge!

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge:Secrets

Shhhh… I have a secret to share with you.. But what could it be? You already know that I eat a lot of chocolate and that I love cats. My obsession with London is self-evident too. I have written about myself a couple of times so what photo could I share with you that reveals something personal about me, yet unknown to my dear readers? 😉

 

This photo reveals a part of my past, a place where my life turned upside down..after that nothing was ever the same. And I wouldn’t be what I am now without my experience there.

 

Secrets is this Friday’s prompt from Snow for her Friendly Friday photo challenge co-hosted with Amanda.

FRIENDLY FRIDAY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Tiles from Portugal

beautiful tiles on the houses in Lisbon

 

You said tiles? Tiles immediately remind me of our honeymoon in Portugal five years ago :). We spent a wonderful week in Lisbon and explored the surrounding area as well. We have even visited the National Tile Museum to admire some very colourful Portuguese tiles.

10 Photos to inspire You to visit Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik or now widely known as the King’s Landing from the Game of Thrones TV series is a spectacular, walled ,old town on the southern Adriatic Coast of Croatia. Dubrovnik was a powerful independent merchant Republic in the history and fought against the Ottoman Empire and the Venetian Republic. Everyone should visit Dubrovnik! However, much as Venice or Barcelona, it has become too popular among tourists so my advice is to visit Dubrovnik off-season, in spring or fall or even in the dead of winter.  There’s so much culture and history in this gorgeous city but there are also beaches and fine restaurants. So, if you haven’t already visited Dubrovnik let this post convince you to experience Dubrovnik.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Dreamy.…such a powerful word that conjures so many images to me. Images of seaside holidays, old castles, my beautiful son, my cat when he sleeps in the sun, my favourite chocolate and London. To me London has always been dreamy. But I chose this photo from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England as my answer to this Friendly Friday Photo Challenge:Dreamy. Why ? Because it’s just dreamy, isn’t it?  And because it reminds me of the time of my life when I was full of dreams….

 

Bury St Edmunds

 

My dear friend from the Snow Melts Somewhere blog has launched a new weekly photo challenge Friendly Friday a few weeks ago. She’s hosting it with another great blogger from Something to ponder about blog. Every Friday one of them gives a prompt and this Friday the prompt was Dreamy. This photo is my answer to Snow’s prompt dreamy.

What does dreamy mean to you?
