I say it every year, and it becomes truer every time : I can’t believe I am still holding on to this blog after all this time! It’s been great, and I am so thankful that after all of this time, and even after disappearing for a few months, I still have people to share this little place with. So, to you all I say :

THANK YOU!!!

This year has been a bit quiet on the blog after a four months break, and I am still not fully back; but I’ve had fun getting back into the rythm. I’ve started posting again, and I’ve enjoyed it, even though I have yet to review a book! I’ve also started commenting this week, though I still have a lot more blogs to visit; if I haven’t stopped by your place yet, it’s merely a question of time, but I’ll be there soon!

I know that’ sort of a boring anniversary post, but I’m still feeling a bit quiet; still I wanted to take the time to mention the event, and celebrate briefly. I love this blogging community, and I am forever thankful for all the opportunities it’s given me.

So again, thank you – and here’s to, hopefully, another six years!

Ubud, Bali, April 2014

When visiting Bali, Kuta was certainly the place I enjoyed the least overall; however, the beaches there were a-ma-zing! Soft sand, big playful waves, colors everywhere – all this under the sun. What more can you wish for?

Filling the Shelf – 156

Filling the Shelf simply is Mailbox Monday, but with a title that suits my blog! If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, click away! (but beware, visiting other mailboxes will probably add to your neverending wishlist!)

Hello again, fellow book lovers!

Wow, my first mailbox in a while! This feels strangely exciting!

I had a lot of ambition for this post at first, wanting to list all the books I got since my last mailbox four months ago; but even though there wasn’t that many books, I got lost and confused and opted to share only some of the most recent onces, received for Christmas (yup, I am still a little late for that!)

I am super excited about all of these; they were topping my wishlist, I can’t wait to give them a read!

Ubud, Bali, April 2014

Winter is getting to me this year, and these past days, I have been finding solace in memories of our past travels. With its warm weather and striking colors, Bali has definitely been at the top of the list!

In Ubud, on the day we went to the Monkey Forest, we stopped by a small touristy restaurant to have some fresh juice and a lunch. The best part of that lunch though, was the colorful view we had on the rice fields!
