We started the year of 2012 with a somewhat crazy trip to beautiful Morocco. I've already been there two times before in my life and it's one of those places I truly love for its beauty, history and architecture. It's hard to not get too much inspiration and always when going there, I'd like to redecorate my whole house into the Moroccan style.
We went to see a dear friend of my man who lives in Morocco and with him we did a 150 scandinavian miles long trip around the whole country by car. And yes, with little Alexis. The long drive took us to Marakesh, Rabat, Casablanca and to the stunning Atlas mountain. I have to say, I wasn't really prepared for this kind of trip, I thought we would go to maybe one or two cities and then stay there, but our dear host had other much greater plans. He wanted to show the "true" Morocco, not visible for tourists. And so he did. This was a trip I wouldn't really recommend with a 6 month old baby, but boy was it and adventure to go on these bumpy mountain roads and see the real Morocco.
Fine Decor and this picture is from the photoshoot we did. Some of my dear Chanel bags and other precious items.
Greta dress with shorter sleeves and my new bought Valentino bag with Valentino studded heels. A very vacationeer look with the hair all natural. (The bag is for sale by the way in Stina's Vintage Store.)
After a while it was back to Switzerland for another wonderful evening in France!
new MaxMara coat, all made in cashmere and from one piece of fabric which made it a limited edition, edition.
Christmas dinner/party at Terrasse in Zürich. Very, very nice.
The last part of December was just published at the blog itself so I didn't feel a need to sum it up again. But this was small parts of the year.
1. The best with this year was - All the trips and being home with Alexis and taking part of every little step of his development.
2. The worst with this year was - Being very much parents. The small toddler years clearly has an impact on the relationship for everyone, finding the balance is tricky but we're getting there.
3. The most developing with this year was - Moving parts of my home to another city, learning how to get new friends in a new city and get a every day life there though a different language etc. This is also what I know now, reflecting back, was hardest. The cultural differences may not seem big, but they are and it takes time to adapt and find yourself again in a new city where you don't have anything.
