I’ve decided to combine my November and December favorites in one post. It is already January but it is never too late to share some love.
Celebrating my birthday in November is always a personal highlight. Friends and family made it very special and I am really grateful to have such wonderful people in my life. It was also my first birthday celebration in Munich.
I am always way too excited for Christmas. And I start early… It’s the one time of the year when everything outside looks so bright and makes me feel festive. For me Christmas is a trip back home, a traditional Bulgarian Christmas Eve, time with loved ones and a celebration of life. It is not about the gifts, it is about the quality time we spend together. And I go back to my roots.
Below is a picture of the Christmas tree in Munich, exploring the Christmas markets in the city is also a highlight of the season.
Rising Strong by Brené Brown
I listened to the audio book and I am truly impressed. As a reader who loves reading both on paper and Kindle, I was very skeptical towards audio books. But listening to this one changed my mind. I was actually listening to the voice of the author and this made the whole experience a special one. Brené Brown speaks about vulnerability and how to embrace it for good. It is a very honest book – the author presents her own flaws and mistakes and uses them as examples. I highly recommend taking time to listen to her TED Talks as well.
