Hello, first post of 2017!

Happy 2017!!!

Wait a minute…am I too late?! hahaha but seriously, how are we almost in the middle of May already?! So much has happened over here in the beginning of the year, family and friends coming to visit, travels and lots and lots of good food and cooking of course! Thank God everything is good around here and I only have good news to share 😀

Actually, speaking os sharing, all this time I was also debating if I should continue this blog or not, it has been 3 years since I started this blog… for the first year I didn’t blog too much, the second year I was more disciplined and posted a lot, especially because it was the year that we came to Berlin, so there was a lot of new stuff going on, last year I posted moderately, wanted to post more, but I got more undisciplined and didn’t do much stuff around the city because we were saving money (as we always are..haha), and because the excitement of a new city has passed, and now Berlin has become our home. Truth be told, I am an ordinary person, with an ordinary life, and yes, I like to stay at home doing some Netflix’n’Chill hahahaha I watch a lot of series and movies, and if there is nothing new that I want to watch, I put on Friends (for the ninetieth time…hahhaha) or Modern Family (for the tenth time, probably), basically anything that makes me laugh, even if I have watched it for a hundred times. Also, every time that I wanted to go somewhere and in the end it wasn’t possible, I was getting frustrated, because “what was I supposed to post on the blog this week?” it would end up ruining the day, and my better half wasn’t happy also with my behaviour. Since I already knew that January and February would be busy around here with visitors, I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to post anything on the blog for both months. Honestly, I didn’t miss posting, and was kind of relieved that I didn’t have the obligation to do it. So I started to ask myself if this was necessary, and went to a more psychological point of view…I don’t know about you, but social media sometimes annoy me, it’s weird how we are hooked up in this kind of thing…. I deleted my twitter account, which I started just because of the blog and never really used it, last week I deleted Flowery Soul’s page on facebook, and I also my personal account, it just didn’t have any purpose for me anymore. Now, if you’re thinking: why don’t you go live in the woods and isolate yourself from the world?! I would love to live in the woods or have a little farm on the countryside, but I’m not quite there yet..hahaha I still like Instagram,  I’m pretty active around there, and I try to follow people who inspire me, not the ones I end up feeling bad about myself (for me it’s crazy that we live in a world of digital influencers), because social media can do a lot of that to people if you’re not careful. I usually post food (of course), cute pictures of Paco (who doesn’t feel happy when they see a happy dog like him?!), pictures of nature, my embroidery work, books, travel and Berlin. Sometimes I post a picture of myself or with Rafael, but it’s rare…reason one: I am far from being the queen of selfies…hahahha; reason two: I just don’t need that kind of attention; reason three: I like to have a private life! I see a lot of posts out there that I don’t agree with and a lot of people that share every little detail of their lives, but I am not the type of person who posts a negative – judgy comment to these people, almost always my motto is: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all! What bothers me is that everyone seems to think that they are entitled to express their opinion everywhere. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in democracy, but there is no such thing as politeness on the web, I don’t know how many times that I saw Instagramers really sad because they got a mean comment, but usually the good ones are way more often than the bad, so my question is, why concentrate on the bad ones? Also, if you are on the social network, you are risking your neck everyday.  Today I can tell you that I am a private person, if I have a problem, the last place I would go looking for help or support is the social media…but hey, that’s just me, who knows what’s right and wrong in this virtual world. In spite of all of this, I started missing writing on the blog this month, and after our trip to France in April month, I thought, why not write about it, and tell our experience there, where we ate and where we stayed, maybe it would help somebody out. At least that is what we try to do before a trip, browse the web. So I decided that I am going to continue this blog, but also stay true to myself and what I believe in. In the end , I like to write, and unfortunately my teen diary days are over….hahahaha So if you want to know what I cook, read, eat, etc…in my totally regular life as a happy house wife, stick around!
