It´s January which means it´s time again for my “Walk And Talk” series here on the blog! For my new lovely readers, ( hi by the way! ) I am gonna explain it quickly: It´s a series that I do once every season and it´s all about a walk and a talk, means: I show you some beautiful photos from my wintery walk and we gonna have a nice chat, just like friends catching up on things! It should feel like we are on the walk together and have the best time! I hope trough this series you get to know me a bit better in a fun, new way. So let´s jump right in!
When I was at Uni I sew a lot, it was part of my studies and I LOVED it! We had a whole big room just for cutting and ironing, and another where all the sewing machines stood. My friends and I spent most of our days, especially towards the end of our studies, sewing together and it was so much fun. But then I graduated and after that I tried not to think too much about sewing, because I missed it and all the hours I spent with my friends a lot. It was painful. I had a really good sewing machine at home, but I just felt sad when I looked at it so I avoided touching it. And as time moved on, I kind of forgot how much I loved it back then. But a few weeks before Christmas, I ordered two sewing magazines and as soon as they arrived, and I saw the amazing patterns they had, I was hooked again. Until that day I sew two tops and two trousers and I can´t stop. It´s just so much fun creating something you can wear with your own hands, it´s so rewarding and it makes you proud of yourself as well. You can look at that piece and think: I made this, and it looks amazing! It´s the best feeling!
Where I live, winter has been especially grey and dark so far. We had near to none sun hours and it´s really getting on my mood lately. I just need sunlight to feel happy and enjoy my life to the fullest. That being said, I try to make the most of it and spent more hours blogging and sewing, because I don´t have to feel guilty to be indoors most of the time. And the days are getting longer again, it´s really noticeable, so cheers to that 😉
The new year always starts with Winter ( at least where I live 😉 ) so I associate it with reflecting on the past year a lot. 2017 was a year of personal growth for me for sure! I think I really seized this year to get my mental health back on track. It was incredible hard sometimes, there where days I felt so, so anxious and nothing worked the way I wanted, but I powered trough it and the result was well worth it! I now feel ready to grow even more towards the person I am supposed to be. Bring it on 2018!
Ok that´s it for today, I hope you enjoyed going on a wintery walk with me! I would love to hear what´s going on in your life at the moment, so feel free to share some of it with me in the comments 🙂 See you on Sunday at 8pm CET with a new post….
I wish you the best day ever!
