A New Chapter… 2013!

Welcome to my first post in 2013!

Time flies and here we are in a new year, a new chapter of our life. In front of us, there is a new road to pass through and I’m sure there will be many new challenges but P and I excited to make this year is a better year than the last one, amen. We had a good ride in 2012 but we will make it different in 2013 in positive ways and with our new dreams, we could say… it’s going to be a meaningful chapter of our book of journey.


First day, we spent it quite slow. We went back home late in the afternoon after spending new year’s eve in one of our friends house in Gävle. On the way to Stockholm, we just realized that the snow has melted away. Kind of sad because I would like to have the whitey stay a bit longer, I have not enough pictures yet but I only can hope that the white beauty will come again and lights up the ground. I know, when we see the trees, they seemed happy when they can show green color of theirs. It is quite different view when they covered by snow where we can see they stand closer and look cold. Still, I can’t stop myself to dream that new snow will come to Stockholm soon, so I have another day with white carpet in front of me and also a time to grab my camera and capture how amazing winter is. Sitting in the sofa, having my dinner while my hands are typing words by words, I feel so grateful for all chances that we got to face this year in our new nest. Pile of snow occupies my backyard but it doesn’t disturb me at all, as I said before… I don’t want winter ends now, please give me a couple of months more 🙂

01012013The sky is getting brighter and brighter every day, the sun was saying hello to us today and we could feel that it will say hello more often this coming days. We don’t have any new year resolutions but we still catching our dreams one by one. There are a couple of dreams that we couldn’t achieve last year but the fight continues with more energy and better attitude. For me, to make our home is homier is something that I should put on the top list of my every day duty, beside to change my habit in eating and also improve my exercise time from zero to at least something this year. Not because I want to get skinnier but because I feel that my body is needed some movement after 8 hours working in the office which is most all the time sitting in front of computer. I know, to begin something is the hardest part but I’ll try and if I don’t do it, I will never know if I am capable to make a change in my life. I don’t want to be size zero which is I know it is kind of a mission impossible for me 😀 This idea came up after we play softball in the backyard of our friends yesterday. Strangely enough, I missed the time when I played basketball almost every day back in my senior high school! One step at the time!!


We work on our biggest dream and hopefully the universe will help us to reach the most thing we wanted in life, amen!

The other thing that I want to learn more in 2013 is gardening! A thing that I admitted I am not an expert on it. When I sit down and try to think what did I haven’t improve in the last 12 months, I found not one but more skill that I should actually started to dig in the same date in 2012 but it is better late than never. I would make my every day in order, at least to make a note to remind me what I’ve been missing.


Inside my mind, actually I want to capture more with my extended eyes. Tell a story through a picture and shape my ability to capture moment by moment freely. Writing more and fill every page of my book wisely, keeps doing something that I love. I have my little book that I got as a Christmas present from one of my good friends and it will be one of thing that will stay in my bag every time I go out from the house.

The first day of 2013 might be today but the year of 2013 is starting tomorrow for me, for us… for our new chapter, new episode of hope, love and faith! I can’t thank God enough for this opportunity given to us to become a better human being, for our family and loved ones, for our friends, for people around us, for Mother Nature, for the world! One more chance to continue to become a dream catcher!

Welcome in 2013 friends, let’s make this year way more in every aspect!!
