I will not start this post saying what my objectives for 2016 are, as I don’t really believe that setting new objectives is mandatory in January. After so many December days spent with family, January already sounds like a less happy month. That’s why I like to start this month with gratitude. 2015 was a beautiful year even if we had some family/health related ‘problems’. During last year I learned something I didn’t know that could bring so much peace and calm into my life: ‘il dolce farniente’. I learned to enjoy taking time drinking my chocolate milk and just doing nothing without being stressed that my laundry has to be made or that the kitchen needs to be cleaned. I learned that those things can wait and my coffee moment gets priority. For this I am grateful.

    Happy New Year Nat! I love your list of gratitude, I think that’s a way better idea than making resolutions. Your soaps and food creations are such inspirations!

    I’m grateful for knowing wonderful people like you, with your positive attitude and beautiful photos. I’m also grateful for living in a country where I can do mostly what I please.

    Happy (and better) New Year 2016 from Finland, too! Last year was hard in so many ways, but I’m grateful that me and my family members are all still alive, I got a chance to study and that one lovely vet saved my doggie’s life just before Christmas. I hope for this year that I would have the strength to do things I need to do and ability to see all those little beautiful things around me…

      Thank you, Sini ❤

  3. I love that phrase! I actually always love taking some time in the morning and throughout the day — even if time only permits a few minutes — just to do nothing and be still. Helps to get out of the mind… ♥

    And your soaps are absolutely beautiful!

      Thank you, Audrey!
      So grateful to have discovered you!

  4. I love the positivity in this post! Setting goals to better yourself is just as important and relevant as making sure to appreciate the things we have already accomplished. Thank you for sharing this beautiful blog. =)

    The whole sitting and enjoying your coffee thing without feeling guilty over not getting something done… Yeah that’s something I’m working on too, but I haven’t mastered it yet. Also I love your blog. It combines my two passions: soap and food.

  6. Absolutely love the soaps! Love you work and your style with soaps and food, it’s incredibly artistic and well designed! Look forward to your posts! ❤
