I hope you are all doing well.
I can’t say that 2018 was easy, as it was full of experiences and unexpected events that impacted me in the best way possible. This year has been definitely a one to remember; full of ups and downs on the personal and professional level.
It was just one of those moments in life where you admit to yourself that you are doing some things wrong and finally decide to take actions in order to change it. And if there is one thing I learned from my blogging journey, is how time flies by. I mean, if I look back to my old blog posts, It would seem like it was only months ago when I posted my “hello 2018” post. With that being said, one of my new year’s resolutions is definitely to enjoy every minute of my day and stop planning everything and worrying about the future. Because after all today will only happen once, and that itself is a scary thought. Gratitude is another area I want to improve this year. There are just so many things in our lives that we should be grateful for, that we tend to ignore with all the distractions we are surrounded with. It is always important to remind ourselves to stop and take time to appreciate everything we have.
This type of blog post is becoming a tradition. Just like the past couple of years, I am sharing with you a sneak peek of how my family and I celebrated the end of the year and welcomed the new year. Food is basically the star of the show, of course without being excessive. My mom and I (mainly her though) made different cakes. The yule log is the star of the table. My mom was really creative and created a forest themed yule log, which I think makes it even more festive and gives it the cozy fall/ winter vibes. In addition to that, she made this layered cake, with a sponge cake as a base and a double chocolate-vanilla cream layers. As it is end of year celebrations, it is only appropriate to use fairy lights (and a lot of them). I just love how they make the overall decoration of the table looks much more happy and fun.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. I also wanted to thank you all so much for the constant love and support, I truly appreciate it.
I wish you all a good health, good luck and much happiness throughout this year 🎇
