in September | freedom lies in being bold | momentstolivefor.com

working…
on blog posts, our secret project, video making, my photo archive and some other small projects.

weathering…
windy, sunny, rainy. A normal September.

crafting…
paperflowers, a minibook, Project Life cards and several little projects.

listening to…
party music. We went to two big parties, one 30th birthday and one silver wedding, with dance music.

watching…
Dr. Who, Emergency Room, Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy.

reading…
Der Schrecksenmeister“ by Walter Moers and still „The Happiness Advantage“ by Shawn Achor, and the first pages of „The Happiness of Pursuit“ by Chris Guillenbeau.

planning…
our next Denmark vacation and our big secret project.

drinking…
some tea again and corn coffee.

eating…
pears and plums, mostly on cakes.

wandering…
through shops to find gifts for friends and some decoration for our home.

wearing…
scarves and my fall boots again.

enjoying…
the last really warm days of this year, time to craft, thanks to my new challenge #365craftingtime and lovely times with friends.

wanting…
all kinds of crafty stuff, like embellishments, PL albums and cards, beautiful papers… but holding myself back, because my craft challenge, to use up most of my crafty stash before buying new things, is still running.

photographing…
some photo walks, the Berlin marathon, party people and making little movies of this beautiful fall.

thinking…
about friendship, bravery, challenges and blogging.

wondering…
how these last nine months could have past so quickly and what the last three of 2014 will bring.

 

looking forward to an exciting month

in August | I miss the sea | momentstolivefor.com

working…
on many new content-heavy blog posts. So amazed, what I came up with and ready to share it with you guys soon.

weathering…
a little bit colder than expected, not really summerly, combined with some heavy rain showers. But mostly sunny with little puffy clouds of white.

crafting…
a travel journal, a travel art journal, art journaling, Project Life pages, pictures for our kitchen, living room and corridor.

listening to…
the breaking of the waves and the call of the sea gulls.

watching…
much less TV and therefore have much more time for crafting and taking walks.

reading…
Jeremy Clarkson’s ‚The World According to Clarkson‘ – from time to time I’m watching Top Gear with my man and lerned to love Jeremy’s humor.

planning…
our vacation (the last bits), the new year (counting from my birthday) and a little bit of 2015. There are some big events coming up, but I can’t tell you right now. But I’m so excited and happy about it.

drinking…
a lot of coffee, water and dark beer, my new favorite.

eating…
most delicious food on our vacation. So much, that we were both fed up afterwards and now trying to eat less meat and more vegetables.

wandering…
along the beach and around Stralsund and Rostock.

wearing…
for two weeks almost only my bike clothes, because we were riding our bicycles every single day on our vacation.

enjoying…
our vacation to the fullest. After an awkward, miserable start, we had one of our best vacations ever.

wanting…
to simplify again. After living two weeks with so few stuff and being happy about it, it’s about time to get rid of some things again, which are cluttering the apartment.

photographing…
the beach, our bicycle trips, the Baltic sea, hanseatic architecture and much more.

thinking…
about how happy I am, what crafting really means to me and how to be more in the moment than thinking about future and past.

wondering…
what this exciting new year will bring.

 

now I’m up for one of my favorites month, September

in July | pretty butterflies | momentstolivefor.com

working…
on my art journal for Get Messy and several awesome new blog posts. So excited to finally have time and the free mind again to work concentrated on the blog and new craft projects.

weathering…
way too hot. This is so not my weather. 30°C and more on a regular work day. When I came home, there was nothing I could do but lay on the sofa and watch TV, a cold, wet towel on my side.

crafting…
art journal pages and finally many new and old Project Life pages.

listening to…
music of the summer and my favorites playlists on Spotify.

watching…
the football World Cup. We are world champions! What a party in Berlin and all over Germany it was! 🙂

reading…
The Night Circus, and finally finished it. The best book I’ve read in a long, long time.

planning…
our vacation. The next big bike tour is coming. But this time together with my boyfriend to the Eastsea.

drinking…
Aperol Sprizz and Rhabarbar prosecco, very yummy. The in-drink this year in Germany.

eating…
lots of (water) melons and ice cream.

wandering…
along the Havel river in Berlin and the streets of Berlin.

wearing…
my new flip-flops. So happy that I found this pretty, comfortable ones.

enjoying…
some free time playing Playstation with my boyfriend – Marvel Lego game. So fun and hilarious. finally a game we can play together, not against each other.

wanting…
cooler weather. 5°C less would be more than enough and some rain, to dance in the summer rain.

photographing…
several photo walks and round & round’s.

thinking…
a lot about our vacation and if we can manage it. And about the blog, the amazing group of creative vixens on Get Messy and many, many new blog posts. My brain is working like mad.

wondering…
when we finally settled in in our life and work in Berlin, if we can build something of a routine with more free time now.

looking forward to a awesome, exciting August
