New Year's 2017

    I remember a time when New Year's Eve was such a big deal... We would plan for months in advance where to go, what to do, what to wear... Now it only makes me smile... As much as I love any reason to celebrate and show your gratefulness, it seems like such a small moment now... Crossing from one calendar year to the next... This may have something to do with the fact that time seems to be having a completely different relevance and sense of measure since I have become a mother.

From January...

     Every time we go back to Europe we realise how happy it makes us to just be outside... It may have to do with the fact that living in Abu Dhabi offers a completely different kind of 'outdoors' experience... Over here we spend most of our time in the mall, indoor playgrounds, different activity classes for Nalia and slightly less time outside at parks, open air playground areas, etc. This is strongly conditioned by the weather in the hot months, as well as the fact that we need to drive to get to the parks, which is not always so practical...

    That is how we ended up going to the nearby park every other day, no matter the temperature, just because it made us feel so happy... It is a 2 minute walk from our home and it is the same park I spent my time in when I was a child. Our little one just discovered the magic of going on the swing and she giggles and laughs the entire time, so that is what we did. The fresh air and all the running around picking leaves and left over chestnuts was also getting her very tired right before her nap, so it was a win-win for everyone! :D
