My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #37

It’s been a while since I shared my last picks of the week and I was wondering if I should number it according to the number of the week in this year or the number of these kind of posts I put up. I decided on the last one. Can you believe that there are only just about 13 weeks left in this year? Crazy, right?

Well, anyway. I had a little bit of time to read through some of my favorite blogs and here are the posts I enjoyed a lot this week. While creating this post I realized though, that when I read them I neither liked nor commented on them… I did today though ;-). So here they are, my picks of this week. Hope you enjoy and that you all spent an amazing weekend 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #36

Another week has passed and this will be a weird kind of weekend as tomorrow there will be no getting up and racing to a soccer game. The season is officially over. Well… the official season is over. Thankfully the girls will play a couple of tournaments still and to be honest I’m looking forward to it. I had a little bit more time on my hand this week and am so happy to have connected with all of you again (at least some of you). I hope everyone is safe. Watching the news and realizing what those powerful storms can do is really an eye opener and makes me appreciate being so safe over here. But who knows what the future has in store for us…

Anyway. Here are my picks for this week. I hope your week was a good one and that you will be able to spend a great weekend with all your loved ones. Happy weekend you all…

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #33

The most beautiful days are the ones you don’t expect to turn out that stunning. Not that I expected today to be shabby, but I most definitely would have not thought that we would stand in the sun, feeling the warm rays on our backs all morning while watching soccer. The forecast was for much worse weather and much lower temperatures. I don’t really want to write about weather but I think it’s the little things that can make your day so good. Like the sun being out when you think it would rain. Or a smile from a stranger, a compliment coming from a friend. A hug. Some good food. Music.

I hope your week was a good one and that you end up spending a wonderful weekend with you loved ones. I know your eyes are set on the eclipse (at least those of you who will be able to witness it). Enjoy. It’s one of those things too…

Here are the posts I loved reading this week. Hope you will enjoy them as well. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #32

Can you believe that there are only 134 days left till Christmas? 134 days till we enjoy what is for many the most amazing holiday of the year but also when the countdown to the end of the year really kicks in. While I don’t feel like time is rushing by as quickly as it did a little while ago I’m still surprised that we find ourselves in mid August already. And I wonder if you guys are still on summer break or if schools back on? I wonder how your summer has been so far and if some of you are looking forward to winter already? And then I wonder why we often crave the opposite of what we have…

Anyway. I hope you had a fantastic week and are currently enjoying a wonderful weekend with all your loved ones, doing what you love to do. Here are my picks of this week. Hope you enjoy them and wishing you a very happy weekend… 🙂

I feel like my feet and hands are still frozen from this mornings soccer game. Sometimes I don’t know how the girls handle the cold. But then they run around, chase the ball and push hard to win their game while we just stand on the sideline and watch, trying to stay warm.

Now, here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. Hope you guys like them too. Have a fantastic weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #30

It’s a stormy day today, winds being really strong and it’s so warm. Too warm for a winter’s day. I’m not complaining. I actually love it. I know it’s not good and we need more rain but this is a problem that we will have to deal with for a long time. I feel a bit torn, you know. Torn between enjoying the mild and dry winter but also knowing how bad it is for nature and also our farmers. Torn between feeling happy about the weather and knowing that it’s a sign for climate change and many issues to come.

But I refuse to be negative about it. You can’t change anything with negativity. It will not bring you any further. And that’s my approach and will always be. Stay positive and move forward trying to make the change that is necessary.

I hope you all had a fantastic week and will be able to enjoy a wonderful weekend doing what you love to do and catching up with people you love to be around. Here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #29

It’s raining outside and I’m warming up from standing on the sideline of the soccer pitch once again, cheering for our girls who did a fantastic job. I love to see their dedication, their commitment but most of all the great team spirit and friendship. It’s not only them. It’s us parents too. One amazing group of friends. And I tell you: It makes standing in the cold so much easier 🙂

Here are my picks for this week. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a wonderful weekend you all:-)
