Waiting for Spring

Dear Optimists,

Even though I love Autumn, and adore the icecold Winter Wonderland we’ve been experiencing here in Denmark; I can’t wait for Spring.

It’s gorgeous to see everything starting to bloom, wonderful to breathe in the smell of Spring time, and to look at all the different animals and bugs that wake up and come out to play.

Except for one bug, of course.

I’m so scared of butterflies that my drawing lines become thicker!

So, Optimists, what animal/bug is your least favourite?

Love,
Nadia.

P.S. You have no idea how long it took me to draw up that scary thing! What I don’t do for you, dear Optimists.

Babysitting in the morning

Dear Optimists,

I hope all of you Americans had a fantastic Thanksgiving! One day I’d love to experience a real Thanksgiving… hint, hint…

On with today’s post:

As you may have noticed on our facebook page, I’ve been “baby”sitting my Mum’s dog, Camma. She’s absolutely wonderful. Except in the morning…


She was dead asleep, so I decided to sleep some more. But I’d forgotten something…


My alarm clock…

The positive side of this story? Oh well, she got me out of bed and we went for a long walk for an hour and a half. Thing is, I would’ve slept in if it wasn’t for her.

Love,
Nadia.

Guest Post Wednesday: Wise cat and early bird

Dear Optimists,

It was just a regular morning and I was going to work. I work in Makati and it’s sort of the Business City where tall buildings and office people are everywhere along with Starbucks and other coffee shops; All I get to see are busy roads and pavements.

I was walking, holding my umbrella on my right hand and fanning myself with my left when I suddenly saw a stray cat sitting along the wall of a Starbucks, apparently observing us “people” walk and rush to work.


Next thing I saw was a man holding a rooster and examining it (checking if it was good, I guess?!), when suddenly the rooster crew! I laughed so hard. The man did not know what to do so he closed the beak in alarm, because the rooster didn’t get to finish what he crewing. Hahaha!


Was it just a morning of odd animals or was it a sign?

Have a nice morning. Watch our for weird animals!

Love,

Sunday Extreme

Dear Optimists,

My Sundays are very different from Den’s, at least yesterday was. Who spend a whole day cooking?

See, yesterday was very sunny here in Denmark. It was even warmer than any other day in October (not really). Nature’s colours were breathtaking. The farm animals were out and about in the fields, letting the warmth from the sun suffuse their bodies. People were walking in the streets with a blissful smirk on their faces. Everything was pure happiness.

Did my boyfriend pursuade me outside for a walk again, you might ask? No way, Jose – he didn’t.

Because, yesterday, I experienced all of this first hand from the back of a motorcycle.

HELL YES!

How was your Sunday, dear Optimists?

Love,
Nadia.
