We're happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland

I am well aware of and terribly sorry for how long I kept you waiting for the second post (by 'you', I mean those couple of readers that actually stuck around). I guess that's what happens when you spend too much time on a blogging break and get too caught up in trying to enjoy the smallest joys in life as of late. Those included a pub quiz, late evening mall runs, shooting funny videos with my roommate and watching the silliest movie we've ever seen until 3am, all wrapped up in our duvets and snacking on an advent calendar. It's been a while since I focused on making memories instead of checking my phone all the time and I'm not going to lie- it felt really good. I'm back in my hometown now, enjoying the presence of my family and doing some last minute Christmas preparations. Today, me and my mum finally got round to decorating our tree to the tunes of typical Christmas songs. This time my mum decided on a blue and silver colour scheme and even though I say it every single year, the tree truly exceeded my expectations.

What I wanted to share with you today are some pictures from 2 weeks ago, when my mum came to visit and I decided to show her the place which is an absolute must-see in the weeks leading up to Christmas. I love the atmosphere of Christmas markets, even if I go there just to swoon over amazing decorations and pretty lights because most of the things are simply too expensive. Every single year they gather artists who offer unique, quality handcrafted goodies and they have food trucks to comfort people after hours spent in the cold- what's not to love?









It was really hard to get a decent photo of me because of the omnipresent crowds and unflattering lighting (hey, we're no photography pros, but we'll get there...) so this one will have to suffice for now. I hope my little recap managed to put you in the Christmas mood at least a bit and you enjoyed it as much as I did sharing it all with you.

Last but not least, I wanted to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas. May this special day be filled with love, joy and peace. I hope being around your loved ones brings you lots of wonderful moments to cherish and Santa ticks off every single point on your wishlist!
