So, where do I even start? This past year has been a true rollercoaster ride – one of the craziest years of my life but I wouldn’t change a thing. It was a year of ups and downs, of lots of tears and disappointments, of a terrifying “omg, how I’m going to go through it?!” and yet 2016 can be called an absolutely magical year. It was the year we decided to take the risk and part our life between Amsterdam and Düsseldorf, the year of incredible experiences and memories, the year we’ve traveled more than ever before and got the chance to visit Porto and Venice for the first time, among other wonderful cities. It was the year we learned that things don’t always turn the way we want, that things sometimes can go wrong but most importantly that sometimes you just have to wait and trust that the life has something else in store for you. As cheesy as it may sound, it was once again proved that with every loss you do gain something else in return.
With all that being said, I just wanted to perhaps reveal the true purpose of this platform. I never wanted it to be just about the pretty pictures and the virtual “fairytale” life. I want to inspire, to start a conversation, to drive people to take the chances, to make them believe in themselves and in their dreams. Because, I’ll tell you what. Dreams do come true. Last year when me and Eugene celebrated New Year in Germany, we could’ve never imagine what this year will bring and that a year after we will be able to celebrate it in Amsterdam with our family.
And now, while I’m sitting on the couch with the most magical view of Amsterdam in front of me, I want to tell you a BIG thank you for being a part of my journey and for letting me be a part of yours! I wish I could meet all of you one day, because all of the sweet messages I received from you this year, has been such a motivation for me! I hope I’ve been an inspiration for you as much as you’ve been one for me! I wish you all the best this year and let it be the craziest, most incredible and memorable one! Just believe that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I love you all endlessly! xx
I can’t wait for all the exciting and wonderful things that are going to happen in 2017. I’m sure it is going to be an adventure and I’m already looking forward to producing more quality and inspirational content for you!
