Wednesday quote

Today I've found a wonderful picture in my "winter wonderland" file on on the desktop. This picture was taken in December 2008 in Upstate NewYork. We've had that freezing nights where all the trees got covered by ice.
That's right guys, its pure ice- no snow! 
An experience I've never had before, cause where I live there is neither that much ice nor tons of snow for long.
We've had more than 5 days without any power and 2 babies in the house, who had to have it cosy and warm. A fun trip almost down to the City had to happen to get a generator to at least get warm water in the house. It was so amazing to look out of the house into an incredible ice landscape...
Guess what?! We finally have the first snow falling for this year. I kinda gave up the hope of seeing this beautiful white flakes before christmas, but noo... there it is.
I was visiting my grandpa in the hospital when I've recognized it. A beautiful view from the uppest level all over the city and little villages around.
Makes me feel very calm and thoughtful somehow.
But in a good way I suppose.

Here are some photos from my childhood I've just found on my external hard drive. 
My brother and me used them for a wonderful christmas gift years ago... 
Still dont have all the christmas gifts yet. I seem to get all the ideas for special presents last minute each year.
Well, I kinda like it that way though...

Wednesday quote

photo has been taken on Route 1, California back in 2009
I've chose this quote today, because time has been passing by super fast these days for me.
The amazing colorful autumn days are over and weather has changed into a cold and dusty atmosphere,
not yet winter wonderland.
I try to make each moment special and useful, but I kinda see myself once in a while just laying in bed covered in blankets and watching TV, cause its just so relaxing. Some hot tea and warm lights make my day perfect then. 
Thoughts coming up in my mind and I try to reflect some projects I'm working on.
Even if it seems to be waisting time, I gain more energie and allow myself to just enjoy the pre- christmastime. 
Time is passing by way to fast sometimes and it totally makes me nervous thinking about the things I could have done. 
While writing about it, energie and motivation comes back and I'm planning the rest of the week.
Tomorrow I'll be shooting a little TV spot again for this local channel. This time not about haircuts and stylings, its about what to wear when you're having a day out in the snow and go for a sleigh ride. 
I think it's gonna be a fun day interviewing the german olympia winner in skeleton.
Friday is also planned quiet good. My day will start by being in school working on my fashion collection for women over 50. Its really tough if you have just 3 colors to work with, but also a really amazing challenge. 
Anyhow, I'll catch up with my friends later to get ready for the Florence and the Machine concert at night!!
Cant wait to see her live again. The tickets have been waiting here for such a long time now... :)

Amsterdam Getaway

About exactly a year ago, I took the train up to visit my good friend, Aranka, near Amsterdam.
We have met in 2008 while we were working together at the Coca-Cola Company. After graduation from school I wanted to work for about 3month somewhere, where I actually earn some good money and get to know some big business. 
The close Coca- Cola Company seemed to be a great opportunity to have a great schedule and a closer look into a business which is well known everywhere in ther world. After about 2weeks working there, Aranka came in and was told to work with me over summer. I was really happy, cause it got kinda boring doing everything on my own, almost not talking to anybody. She and I got friends right away and were working together as a team like nothing.
After our time was over as some Cokegirls, we couldn't see eachother for over a year, cause I left the country for my very new adventure of being an AuPair. Since I'm back, we both talk once in a while over all sorts of social medias and still talk like always. Even if we don't see eachother that often because of the distance, we try to connect as often as possible. I guess this is called a "real friendship", which you just dont find that often out there. 
Anyways, I found these few pictures of our visit for half a day in the city of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Enjoy.
