Birthday Gifts of Life

Knitting Blog

Happy Wednesday and Happy 2018! It feels so good to be back to this space – I haven’t been exactly away, just a little bit behind the scenes – I’ve been knitting non-stop these days and also working on some website updates that you will hopefully see soon!

Today I am celebrating my birthday just the way I love – waking up at dawn, working, calling my dear ones to say “I love you” and “Thank you for everything” and slowing down today, just a little bit to feel grateful for one more year in my life – I do not take it for granted!!

Also I want to share with you some special for me images from my lonely December walk, when the wind was blowing, the sky was gray, but the ocean was so beautiful that it took your breath away – this is truly my happy place…

The Gifts Of Life. Sunset Hike.

Knitting Blog

Happy Sunday! If you are watching my Instagram stories, then you already “hiked” with me yesterday and saw this breathtaking view from the hill… Today I would like to share with you the images lit with the sunset light. Hiking is one of my favorite activities, it’s been forever since my last one, but yesterday I made myself put away the to-do list, got my tennis shoes and went up the hill to say goodbye to the sun. I hope you will enjoy this little photo story today and have a wonderful Sunday!

Summer Gifts + Free Wallpapers

Knitting Blog

Happy Friday! This week I was going through summer photos and found some hidden treasures from our August road trip. As hot and humid summer is gone, I wanted to save these images that remind me of salty air, hot, almost burning wind and the sound of waves crushing… I hope you will enjoy this little visual story today. I also prepared for you a set of downloadable wallpapers for your desktop and a phone. I wanted to do it for a long time, please, let me know if you like the idea 🙂

And now, off to California west coast… You can turn on Sigur Rós for the perfect mood.

Gifts Of Life. At Dawn

Knitting Blog

I love routine. Love waking up at the same time every morning while it is still dark, lit up a candle, stretch, knit, go to work… Love this familiar rhythm of days filled with simple little things that warm your heart. But sometimes there is nothing better than to wake up on your day off and decide to chase a sun. Jump in the car, turn on your favorite music and climb in the darkness up the hills to meet a new day, be in awe with nature and infinitely grateful…

Life, Color and Textures

Knitting Blog Textures

Happy July! I hope you haven’t lost me. 🙂 Amid some personal turmoil, day job and many missed deadlines, I felt like I needed a break and step away from the online presence for awhile. Though I didn’t post much in June, I was still working on several projects – there has been a lot of behind the scenes knitting going on that I am sure I’ll be able to share with you in the new knitting season.

Now I feel revived and ready to come back to weekly blogging. I thought celebrating it with the splash of color and textures from my latest trip to one of the local farms.

I was so inspired by this place that is a true hidden gem – small family farm covered in mango trees and all kinds of vegetables and greens. The taste of fresh oranges cannot be compared to any supermarket produce!!! I will definitely keep supporting this hardworking family!

And with that I will leave you with colorful and juicy images of this magical oasis.

May Textures and Colors

Knitting Blog Textures

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Today I am sharing with you nature’s textures and colors that I was inspired by this month. I decided to do it regularly, creating a visual diary that I and, hopefully, you will come back to whenever you need a smile on your face or a reminder that life is beautiful in all its forms 🙂 I am so grateful to knitting for teaching me how to notice small little things and see the beauty in details. I hope this short post will bring some joy to your Sunday morning!

Timeless sea breezes,
that for aeons have
blown ancient rocks,
you are purest space
coming from afar…

Have a beautiful day!
