Happy New Year!!!

How was your Christmas? We had a wonderful relaxing family time! Just hanging out together, playing, eating, snoozing, simply relishing each others company.
Fuer Ronja, Britta and Joerg-Uwe, hier findet ihr alle photos ( Link to our christmas photos )
Lucky me I got so spoiled, yummy chocolates, a beautiful necklace and bag, an embossing gun, woohoo no more burning my fingers with the heat torch;p a fancy fiskars rotary cutter, stamps and other bits and pieces!
Slowly the stress of the last weeks is fading. No idea yet what we’ll do about the house being on sale.. moving? when and where to? Right now we just recharge. Rainer ‘s 4 trips to Aussie in 8 weeks took their toll but now with a lot of R&R he’s feeling his old self again. *yeah baby love it when you’re cheeky and happy*
The weather has been amazing and we are enjoying trips to the various beaches around here. Such a grounding feeling, walking on the beach, the wind in our faces , the smell, the salt on our lips, our hands entwined…. Just makes me feel so centred again.
We just love hanging out together! Right now life is simple, life is happy 🙂 And all else will fall into place.
I’m excited about the year to come!  But I shall save more for my next post ;p

How fantastic it is to have met you all through this blog and shared our stories throughout the year. Makes me feel thankful and blessed!

I’m looking forward to another year with you and wish you all a blessed New Year!

May Love, Light and Laughter abound,
May Fun and Miracles bloom,
And you find Joy in many places
and all you do!
TFL and all your lovely messages 🙂
love, Ilka

    It looks like you had a lovely day on Christmas day, thanks for sharing your pictures with us all 🙂 I hope the house thing sorts itself out soon – very unsettling for you all. I have enjoyed having the opportunity to become a cyber friend via our blogs having met you at Scrap Camp – aren’t blogs just the most amazing things? Take care and I hope 2008 is all you hope and more.
