Somewhere in the middle

Thursday, December 29, 2011

The week between Christmas and New Year Eve has been marked down in my brain as the ultimate holidays week (pairing, perhaps, with those blissful sun filled ones of August). This comes from my childhood days when it actually was a week off school and responsibilities and full of presents and glorious dinners (and lots of play, of course!). Now, I have to fit somewhere between my memories and soul desires and the reality (yeap, work, deadlines, chores and other stuff grown-ups usually suffer from). Well, working freelance (and from home) helps me find some balance, with the sleep time stretching long time in the mornings and those friend soirées getting the night on fire. It's the sweet exhaustion of the holidays, short but over the top invigorating!

  1. It is such an interesting week, the days between Christmas and New Year's. I just want to laze about at home or go out and do fun things. I'll bet you're right, that it's from all those years as a kid when this was winter break. In any case, I hope you enjoy it!

  3. Love the second image! I remember too that lazy week between Christmas and New Years as a child who didn't have a care in the, play, play! LOL

    Happy New Year Eleni!

  5. Love the first image, I felt relaxed just looking at it :)

    I love the Christmas holidays too, they always feel so timely after a long year. I'm going to hit the gym now to try and shake off some of this Christmas dinner :)


  6. You are right, this week is interesting. I find myself in a bit of a conflict; it's like I'm ready to simply start the new year and then there is a part of me that's holding on to the holidays.

    By the way, the colour palette of that first room is mon dieu, love it. You always find the most amazing photos.
