Today's been all about green:
* Toast with asparagus, poached egg, sauce hollandaise, cucumber and cottage cheese for breakfast.
* Taking care of our plants.
* Spaghetti with wine and garlic marinated zucchini, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil & parmesan cheese for lunch.
I've lost myself completely while going through horrible personal things the past year, I guess it's been pretty clear by the lack of updates on my blog which used to be a place that made me happy, feel inspired and feel secure to open up about a few personal things now and then. Much of what has happened is because I haven't been able to say no to people (I learned at an early age that if I followed my own heart, someone else could get upset, so I ended up being an ultra pleaser). Last year I got involved with a very infectuous person who was talking badly about everyone around us and couldn't take no from me, which led to me taking care of solving things with her more than taking care of myself and also to see the world in a more negative way (I really learned things about myself from this and hope to never be in the same situation again). This, and some other things, led to a severe depression which I'm now trying to get well from.
So now I plan to take a lot of time for myself, it's going to be a struggle for me to say no to people who want to visit, but I am going under from not having enough time to focus on my own emotions, projects and to rest. I hope I will feel more inspired and less scared to post here again now that I've been open about some things that have been going on. Thank you for reading and for still coming by this place :)
May - Summer is here and I slowly try to do things that used to make me happy, taking long walks in the mornings for example.
It's hot, my friends laugh at me when I call this time of year Summer.
Snuck into my favourite courtyard, 2nd picture is from the attic of my building.
Complete happiness when friends invite you over for dinner and they serve oysters.
The city is flirting with me.
Yesterday Johan and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary with a slow stroll around the neighbourhood and a very delicious (I'm being ironic now) pizza in a park :)
No comment, except that my niece kind of forced me to learn how Snapchat works (it's the first time technical stuff made me feel old haha).

On Thursday I went to the pre-opening of the new foodmarket Kiez99 (where the Neue Heimat Foodmarket used to be, this time with free entry and much friendlier atmosphere) to celebrate the new logotype for The Bird Xberg which Johan has been working on. We spent the day with Mark, a very good friend and the king of The Bird. Also tried the Bibimbap from Son Kitchen - super tasty!
Today is the opening of Kiez99 and it will be open every Saturday and Sunday.
