make peace with the past

Vila do Conde , Portugal

Well this is me, four years ago, when everything felt meaningless and pretty vain. While it looks a cute and pretty scenery, I don't remember enjoying this as I should. Looking back on those memories I want to hug my younger self.

There are more to come, cause actually I'm making peace with the past.
......don't forget, that's the new year's resolution period, after all.

Chistmas around here

to be honest, I am not the most festive person ever. Loving Christmas is one thing, be prepared for the Christmas period and being the one to lead it, is another.

Well I have an issue on being Christmassy before the actuall Christmas day, usually we decorate for the holiday's time, a day or two before Christmas day (yes we do). Set aside that in my family, New Year's eve has all the festive tradition, Christmas is a more religious related topic.

Being part of Double Crochets, and having to prepare stuff far earlier off the season, is not something I am used to, and I hardly do it! That's why you won't seeing any Christmas tutorial or anything over on DC's blog. But hopefully I will, next year?

Although I do festive stuff, and here are some of them:
Clean house is a must, I do help to decorate our tree, I choose nice clothes to be my holiday's outfit (like Sunday's clothes) and do eat all the sweets I can, gifts+wishes are accepted and appreciated (!! very festive) and I am doing New Year's resolutions since 2009.(that year was the festiviest I've ever done it so far, I made a handmade gift for everyone in my family.)

Desclaimer: all photos were taken at the aiport, no Christmas decoration was used for this photoshoot!

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas!
the only thing I hate about Christmas is the late holidays' gifts' shopping.....pukes.

When I tidy up my room, I usually find forgotten things and I photograph them:
