Changes.

Changes are happening around here. It seems we have to say good bye to some of the perspectives we had for this year, which is very sad. Just yesterday there was so much sadness in me that I had to leave work early because tears and work do not go together well. When I arrived at home, I took a short walk in the nearby woods and noticed changes happening there, too. A different light, new smells. I don´t think we´re done with winter yet but nature is definitely preparing for spring.

Which made me think that there´s so much in my life to be thankful for. For example this pretty part of the world where I live and which I truly love. Soon enough every inch of the woods will be covered with ramsons which is an amazing sight. And then there´s this tiny house and the not so tiny garden of ours which give me so much joy. I have so many plans for spring and summer already. I want to do lots of gardening. And I want to throw a huge garden party in summer making up for the summer wedding we didn´t get to have. Good things to look forward to.

Life´s all about changes, and I believe everything happens for a reason. I just need to remind myself of this from time to time.

Katrin,
I must tell you how grateful I am that you share your beautiful pictures and thoughts with all of us. I live with my husband and son in a tiny space in a city (NYC) and have been so inspired by your design aesthetic and appreciation for the simple and the beautiful. On the very gloomy days of winter, I can enjoy pictures of gardens and homes with wonderful light (like yours) and it immediately has a positive impact on my day - so THANK YOU!

I hope that the sun shines brightly and the air warms in your part of the world soon. I am looking forward to seeing leaves on trees here again soon. Change can be wonderful!

Thank you so much Marie, this means a lot to me! And yes, changes can be wonderful, mostly are actually. It´s just that I looked forward to this particular plan so much - I´ll write about it in detail soon. But, you know. Onwards!

I imagine NYC must be beautiful in spring. My only trip to NYC was in autumn (October), and it was very special - it seems there was so much excitement in the air? It´s a wonderful place.

Yes, NYC is beautiful in the spring - there is a certain energy in the air - things seem fresh and new! I am in the mood to buy flowers again!

Saying goodbye to plans or dreams can be really difficult and sad, I try to remind myself then that there are new possible plans and dreams that can start to take form when we've said goodbye to the old ones. Garden party sounds really wonderful. Your pictures are beautiful :)
