Thank you again for all your good wishes before we went on our blogging break!

We had a relaxing time with beautiful walks in quiet areas (without a phone signal and limited internet) and hope you had a peaceful week too.

Wishing you a blessed Sunday and a happy week ahead,

with love from Xenia xxx
