And be happy

One of my favorite things to take photos of are flowers. There’s rarely a time that I see a flower, have a camera in hand, and don’t take a photo. Every flower is beautiful and unique. Now that I wrote that out, I realize that the same can be said about each person. We just […]






This is where I live (Part 4: surrounded by animals)

I’ve saved the best for last! My favorite part of living here is being so close to animals. Right behind where I live there’s a pasture where I can see two horses grazing almost all year round (the black and white/brown horse pictured below). There are sheep and cows as well as plenty of cats. […]






This is where I live (part 3: the view in the distance)

The view here may be one of my favorite things about where I live and takes my breath away almost every single day. When the sky is crisp and clear, I get the privilege of seeing the gorgeous Alps. Living in Switzerland definitely has its perks and this is one of my very favorite. Among […]






This is where I live (part 2: field walks in the outskirts)

I hope that once you look through these photos, you’ll feel like I’ve taken you on a walk around my little village. I’ve been told that there are about 10 farmers that live here and tend to the many fields you see in these photos as well as animals that I plan on showing you […]






This is where I live (part 1: a little Swiss village)

Here it is! The long awaited home/village post. This is where I currently live. There are about 500-700 people that live here (I’d give you an exact amount, but I’ve heard and read many different things). Sometimes I love it, sometimes I like it, and sometimes I’m not too fond it. It’s very quiet here […]






What we all have in common

This is a taste of the walk I took today on this beautiful day. Rapeseed fields like this cover Switzerland in the springtime and are a beautiful site. I had no idea there were such beautiful fields until I moved here and now I live in a town that’s covered from all sides with such […]






Snow days were always some of my very favorite

I’ve been hearing from so many how they’ve had enough of snow and winter, but I absolutely love it and haven’t had enough! I wanted to share these photos with you to remind you of the beauty of snow and winter. So many of my friends keep telling me about all the snow they’re getting […]






Life is wonderful [thanks to a little cat with a big heart]

Meet Sapcio: the apple of my eye, the key to my heart, one of the most important living beings in all of the world to me… my Baby. This post will show you a part of me that only those closest to me have seen and know. My family rescued Sapcio (it’s a Polish name […]






Illuminated world

Merry Christmas!

I woke up this morning to the beautiful sight of snow falling outside my window. I got my wish for a white Christmas and my family together for the first time in five years! I hope for all of you that your wishes come true and that you have a lovely holiday. I may post […]
