When I searchend my blog for my last monthly review, I was somehow shocked finding it in December 2014. The last year was really a slow one on the blog, but my life was filled with events and mile long to do lists. Today I want to bring back the monthly review, because I miss it. It’s a moment for me to pause and reflect on the month behind me, that otherwise would fly by so fast, unrecognized. So without further ado…

 

FOCUS

Trying to be present and simply enjoy the summer and the mostly free time after this eventful, busy year.

 

PROGRESS

Simplifying our home is one step closer to  a medium minimalism. It’s still a lot of stuff and my fingers are prickling, because they want to do more, get rid of more stuff. But at the moment I’m happy how far I’ve come and how good it feels.

Sorting through my photos and purging at least half of it or better two third. It’s a work in progess. But step by step or better byte by byte I’m keeping on going forward and sorting through every folder and deleting gigabytes of pictures.

 

FINISH

Finally wrote all ‘thank you’ notes for all our wedding guests and beyond. It took me several hours with help of my husband, but now they are finally shipped.

 

WEATHER

Changing rapidly between cold and much too hot. One day I have to wear a sweater, the other day I’m dying of heat while only wearing a thin shirt. So looking forward to a moderate autumn.

 

LERN

For a few weeks I tried to take every day another online course on those terrific online platforms Skillshare and Creativebug. It was amazing. In only 15 to 30 minutes every day I lerned so much, from cocking to painting to programming a website.

While editing the photos of our wedding, I lerned a lot about Lightroom and all those little options you can change and that can make an image really pop.

 

FAVORITES

My new favorite TV serie, although a little older, is ‘Lie to me’. Absolutely fascinating lerning about micro expressions and unconscious human behaviour.

I’m over the top inspired by Flora Bowley’s course ‘Intuitive Painting” on Creativebug. There was so much to lern and try. It was like magic on a canvas.

 

DISCOVER

Potsdam is not that far away from Berlin and always worth a visit. Beautiful, charming city with a lot of green and impressive architecture.

Pokemon is fun, even if you don’t play it actively. My husband (still getting used to not calling him my boyfriend anymore) plays it enthusiasticly, so we went on some walks to get him some new Pokemons. I used the time for taking photos or when we stayed at one place for longer, catching up on my reading. So fun & a perfect match!

 

Looking forward to an eventful, travelsome September.
