Old fashion blogging

















The autumn sun sits low all day long. It burns my eyes through my window where I sit at my computer keyboard. I'm working on a morning walk routine. Out the door at 7.30 am when the sun is still sleeping, watching it rise over tree, roof and mountain tops just before I return back home from my 5K loop. I was planning on getting a head lamp to navigate myself through the dark mornings (Oh My there have been some VERY dark mornings...), but since turning back the time an hour in October, its not that dark anymore. I think I preferred those cold an dark mornings. It was more private and quiet... Now the sun is already up spreading its daylight all around which makes me feel more exposed in a weird way...

Autumn is blowing my mind with its beauty this year. I've come to the conclusion that it is probably my most favorite season. Saying that, I know I will say the exactly same thing when winter, spring and summer comes around. I love the change of seasons for the simple reason that it brings some diversity to life. You never get bored. There is always something new unfolding around the corner. A reason to change color themes of your cushion covers and bed linen, change your wardrobe, shoes and hair. A reason to throw yourself into new projects, a new start, a new everything. And as many of you know, I am a big lover of new beginnings... There is also the comfort of the everlasting traditions each season bring. Halloween box for October, Christmas box for December, Easter box for April, Summer box for June... and all those mini events in between such as birthdays and anniversaries...

Nelly Bo turned Sweet Sixteen just about a week ago. How did that happen? It was magical and surreal. I made her. I gave this fantastic person life. She was so tiny... I remember her laying there on the floor on the baby blanket in our apartment in Cairns, Australia... Kicking her legs in the air and waving her arms uncontrollably... We stood there and stared, me and Jay, and then we looked at each other and wondered "Ok. What do we do now?" Mixed feelings of fear of the unknown and the fact that life had just taken a totally new direction. We were so young... we had no idea... And look at her now... How on earth did that happen?

I have missed this place. I've missed my journal writing. Taking notes of my thoughts, reflections, trivial daily stuff, the small but yet so important things in life that actually creates life. Moments to cherish, to acknowledge. The snippets of life seen through my camera lens... Details, feelings, beauty... This is where I can sit and flick through the pages, travel back in time and remember all the things that usually just slips through my fingers and are forgotten if not noted...

I've missed my words. I've missed the outlet, the therapy of writing. And when you miss something, you should try to find your way back to it. I'm here to find my way back to the blog I once started. Pop in and out as I want to. On my terms. Without pressure. To share. To inspire. To connect. To teach and to learn. To document my life and creative adventures. That is all I ever wanted. Old fashion blogging.



Kärlek
Annette

  6. Wonderful post, pictures and garden. What are those fruits on the branches in that one picture? Welcome back. BTW, is it common to have those "buildings" (the church, etc.) in the garden? So charming! Love them! Did you make those yourself?

  12. Hi Annette,
    While watching ice skating on tv, I started up my laptop to go to my own blog and write about some new finished project. As always I fastly check my mail and bloglovin. And I cheered a little when I saw your post. I said it before and I say it again, I love your writing. Your thoughts and reflections as you say are nice to read. I love the part of the morning walks, I can't imagine living in Switzerland, and just having the possibility to just walk out your door and be in the mountains.
    Annette, I'm so happy that you're back :-).

    Have a nice sunday.

    Sweet greetings,
    Emily

  20. Wonderful to hear your words...you are able to describe a lot of what I feel with the changes seasons as well. Lovely photos and you have definitely been missed, but blogging is so much more fulfilling when you do it when it feels right and not when you feel you have to!

  23. What a lovely post Annette, I miss the days when blog land was so busy, but I'm guilty of taking the quick and easy option of using Instagram daily. A bit of old fashioned blogging is good for the soul.
    Great to see you back and happy birthday to your beautiful girl.

  24. Writing is a wonderful thing isn't it. Snippets of memories, written down and saved, things that might otherwise be forgotten, beautiful moments in time, thoughts that you can look at another day from a distant place. How lovely to see a post from you. Words, and the therapy of writing, no pressure, on your terms - exactly how it should be. CJ xx

  28. how lovely to see your blog pop up on my email, how lovely to read your words; to look at your country through your camera lens, to have some understanding of your feelings about you daughter as she turns 16, and my daughter turning 15 today; (for some reason I am struggling with that;how old she now is, defiantly not my little girls anymore) how lovely to find out that you spent time in Australia... here is to new beginnings; enjoy your autumn

  31. Oh I've missed your blog and have a little tear in my eye with the reconnection of it - especially when I read how you'd had your first baby in Australia! I miss you! That's weird right - but it's true.

  32. What a lovely surprise to find your post. Thank you. Good old fashioned blogging is best. x

  33. It is nice to have you back. I love the way you write - like it should be read slowly while drinking a hot drink. I love blogs, much prefer them to instagram, as I like the more intimate and deep. I love autumn, too!

    1. Hi Lise
      I'm so happy to hear this. We are very much alike about that. I think I will try and spend more time here than on IG. It feels more real and, like you said, slow. More time for reflection and engagement than just a double tap on a picture you've forgotten in a second. Thanks for your sweet words.

  37. I'm so glad you decided to come back to old fashioned blogging. I agree that when you miss something you should try to get back to it. this was such a lovely post. Happy Belated Birthday to your beautiful daughter. Kudos to you for getting out early for your walks, they sound lovely but honestly I am too much of a scardy cat to walk alone in the dark. Have a lovely week.

    1. WHat a nice and warm welcome back. Thank you so much. Yes, I know... Early dark mornings are maybe not to recommend at any place in the world. I'm lucky though. Switzerland is such a safe place to be and I love this country for that. And for me living in the country side I think bumping into a wild animal is probably the only risk I take. Thanks for staying with me.
