YESSSS! Few days of winter has arrived. And I’m lovin it for real. Way back from November last year.I have been wishing some snow fall in any moment of those days. Unluckily, no snow fall and no winter wonderland feels. I went to Strängnäs for Christmas and New year. The day I arrived was the day when the snowfall stopped. Literally,it’s winter but everything is frozen and hard as ice and cold.
The winter last year also did not take so long. Five days of snow and it melted. And now another few days of white snow fall and it’s enough. I could not explain how happy I am like a kid.
“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”
– Andrew Wyeth
“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.”
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'”
– Lewis Carroll
Probably my (our) last winter in Skåne! 💓
We’ll Miss this place for sure 💓 BUT WE’LL KEEP ALL THOSE GOOD MEMORIES AS WE COULD. ABI GAIL will be moving in Belgium to continue her au pair adventures . As I am heading back home to the Philippines for good.
Growing up in such a tropical place with the sun rays up to 40 deg C every day is really exhausting. Who never loves changes?
Every winter is really important to me.When a European friend asked me why I’m into snow? Winter? I simply answered them because I like it. But behind that ( I really don’t know how long will I stay and be able to see and enjoy the winter time) That’s why I’m enjoying every snowflakes that drops from the sky.
It’s cold literally but there’s no reason to stay indoors.
It beautifies everything that covers
Just get up right and and make the most of the fresh of the white season.
It’s not really a good winter this year. A day full blast of snow and its melting on the next day .but hey! at least there’s always a thing that we’re looking forward to . The changes of the season . Like Passenger song lyrics said “Only miss the sun when it starts to snow” Only you’ll miss the thing when it’s not there anymore.Like us, we are taking things for granted most of the time. And when it’s gone it’s gone 😂 you’ll never know how important it is until it’s gone (again)😂😅What’s the connection anyways? Haha😁
Looking forward for the spring season! 🌸 What are you looking forward to?
Spring has come!(I think so😅) Well, there’s still quite some snow around.What makes it wonderful is that the sun is up and it feels like 11degC ☀️ . I still remember my host kid (the eldest one) told me today when he arrived “OH! Miesel it’s very warm outside! More sun, happy Norwegians ” (I just smile but actually, I wanna laugh) yes! More sun,not only happy Norwegians but also happy Miesel. Who will not be happy? after not seeing the sun in quite a while. Living here during winter season is just amazing in some ways that you could enjoy winter coz there’s just a lot of snow all over the place. No wonder why it’s famous destination when winter comes. But having Mr.Sun in a day is like having a motivation to do more work and being happy. When I’m in the Philippines I really hate being under the sun. Just like wooh my skin will get darker again. Having white skin in the Philippines is a trend. (You’re pretty when you’re white ) as they said and that’s the conceptual fact being a Filipino.
I won’t missed the day not going outside and do some short hike around Lillehammer. I’ll show you some photos where I call it my happy place. (I almost spent my time visiting this place since I moved here) it’s just as wonderful as it is.
Where is your happy place then? Take a walk into the forest and smell the wild air! Happy Spring 🍀
I love early mornings when it feels like the rest of the world is still fast asleep and you’re the only one who’s awake and everything feels like it isn’t really real and you kind of forget about all your problems because for now it’s just you,the world and the sunrise.
Rise and Shine☀️Stay blessed 🙏🏽

Life is unpredictable,
It changes with the seasons,
Even your coldest winter,
Happens for the best reasons,
And though it feels eternal,
Like all you’ll ever do is freeze,
I promise spring is coming,
And with it,brand new leaves
oh! Just love reading this! And can’t wait for the brand new leaves to come. Pictures taken just inside and outside our house ❄️(What are your spring excitements and plans then?) Share your thoughts 🎈
Enjoy every season Coz every season brings different experiences ❤️xxxx
I thought it was already spring last few days. Then suddenly the weather changes again. The weather is just so unpredictable. Sunny days earlier,snows were melting and the second day it’s all foggy,cloudy sky with some rain and snow. What is really beautiful about it is that no matter how changeable it is . You will still be able to see the beauty of every CHANGES. I’m glad and grateful enough waking up with such a great view from our living room . (What are you grateful today?)
