I took Ludwig on a walk yesterday just as dusk set in and managed to take a few pictures despite my terrible dog who was literally dragging me along because apparently when there´s snow one must walk even faster than usual. Kind of makes sense, considering this is how you stay warm. Anyway I thought the pictures make a good last post of 2014.
2014 was a good year for me personally. I feel like we are really getting there with our house and garden. We still have about a million plans and wishes but the foundation is there and now we can slowly but surely add to it. We´ve worked so hard over the past 3.5 years - it is time to step back a bit and enjoy what we´ve created. I hope we can do just that in 2015.
2014 has also been a wonderful year with Ludwig. I am very well aware that we´ve turned into that awkard childless couple who adore their dog more than is probably healthy, but well, so be it. He is a great joy in our lives, he really is.
Also in 2014, terrible things have happened all over the world. It is often hard to write about such relatively insignificant things like gardening or decorating when the world seems to fall apart. However if this is what keeps me sane, and maybe brings you a little joy, then this must account for something - right? Here´s an excellent post on this topic by the way.
I am really excited about 2015. It will be the year when we start traveling again - so far we´ve lined up trips to the Baltic Sea, Vienna, England and Sweden. We didn´t have either cash or time to travel in the past few years, so I am very much looking forward to that. As someone who works from home, I sometimes miss the feeling to "come home". Sometimes you need to be away from home just so you can appreciate it even more when coming back. Does that make sense?
And with that, good bye 2014! You´ve been a fine year indeed. And to all of you, thank you so much for reading, always. It means a lot. See you on the flip side!
