Today marks the first anniversary of my blog. It has been since then an incredible journey and I can hardly put into words, what this year means to me. One thing definitely: I am most thankful for all of you, readers and followers, supporters and commenter, friends and clients from near and far! Your loyalty means so much to me!
From my first post, a project I had then completed...there was no text!
You all out there have given me so much more then I can ever give back to you: endless inspirations, knowledge, joy, wisdom, friendship, and the patience
to keep writing. It has been a year in which I began to find my way and voice in the world of blogs, found so many bloggers to follow - that list is growing - found hours of entertainment, where I had to force myself to stop and go to bed...or stop and start cooking!
I have not run out of ideas of what to tell you, or show you, something I thought could possibly happen, but my original idea for this blog has slightly shifted. I had planned to write eloquently about design and art, an elegant blog full of glamour and fancy reflections...
as it turns out I am writing about art and design reflected through the lenses of my patch work life. I am simply talking about things that truly touch me, things I see and want to share. And I have learned to write and to express myself better. This is not so easy for me, for English not being my mother tongue. But I adore this language! I have learned from all of you to find my own honest voice!
Here is to my family who has endured hours of motherly/wifely absence, due to blogging, writing or taking endless pictures...
And particularly to my older sons for getting me started and being so incredibly supportive at all times! Many cries for help where answered! I hope you keep being patient with me!
I am writing mostly about all things I feel and know best: my experiences, memories and travels, my work as an interior designer, about being a wife and mother of four completely different children, being a friend, an immigrant - homesick on occasion - about being an artist, a reader, a musician (not good enough), an addict of all things beautiful, lover of nature and creatures.
I am so grateful for all which has come to me during this year: especially a wonderful new friendship!
AND IT'S SUCH FUN!
Thank you all for being who you are!
