serenity + insanity

3 Dec 2014 spirit + soul

december has arrived, and so far it has brought me a big mixture of serene, cozy, quiet moments + crazy, stressful, frustrating moments. i hope that it won’t be such a big roller coaster month then entire time, but, if it is, then i’ll survive. i am certain that it is because no one should “plan” to make a big move to another country in the middle of a holiday season – craaaaazy. of course, we actually didn’t plan itRead More
