Hello my dear Littlestarblog readers, I hope you had a wonderful New Years Eve and I wish you a marvellous New Year, filled with love, joy and lots of laughter !!!
This holiday season, my husband and I decided to forgo all the usual stress of a huge family Christmas with all the drama and obligations that sometimes come with it… We decided to be just a bit selfish (if you will) and do something we have never done before – we stayed home and enjoyed a cozy and very private Christmas and New Years with the kids ! Even though we missed our extended family and friends, we had the most amazing, quiet, relaxing holidays I have had in my entire life !
We spent the first day of the new year taking the kids to our local zoo on a bright, sunny winter day and really just enjoyed our walk in the chilly air, while we basked in the sunshine, each others company and the love that surrounds us. So often, the simple pleasures in life are the ones that bring us the most joy and this year our only New Year’s resolution is to enjoy those tiny but magical moments in our daily lives and the simple pleasures more ! Instead of pushing ourselves to new limits, my husband and I will try to be gentler and kinder to ourselves !
Here are a few photos from our visit to Tierpark Hellabrunn – the light was magical and I think you can really see the love ! Have a look and if you are busy stressing out over this year’s resolutions, take a moment to think about the really important things in life and don’t forget to be kind, forgiving and patient with yourself because you deserve it !
Have an amazing 2014 and most of all BE HAPPY !!!
Lots of love, Bridgee xx
