Festivities / Vrijeme slavlja

I hope you had a lovely Christmas! Mine was bittersweet. I guess that with everything that is going on in the world, I found it a bit hard to get in the mood for festivities. However, life should always be celebrated. Life is a gift. We're not helping anyone by feeling sad. Sadness it a part of life, but we shouldn't let it become overwhelming. Let's celebrate life. Our way.  Have blessed holidays everyone! If you're a foodie, you're probably enjoy these photographs. You know I'm a foodie, right?

Nadam se da ste imali ugodan Božić! Moj je bio gorkosladak, sa svime što se događa u svijetu nekako nisam toliko raspoložena za slavlje. No, život uvijek treba slaviti. Život je dar. Ne pomažemo nikom time što smo tužni. Tuga je dio života, ali ne smijemo joj dopustiti da nam preuzme 
život. Slavimo život. Na svoj način.  Uživajte u praznicima! Volite li hranu, vjerovatno će vam se svidjeti sljedeće slike. Znate da ja volim hranu, zar ne?


  1. Jesu ovo punjene rajčice gore na slici? Čime ih puniš?
    Sretan Božić!

    1. napunila sam ih sa mladim sirom, maslinovim uljem i grčkim jogurtom, ali možeš staviti bilo što zapravo..jako brzo se spremi i baš je praktično za serviranje.

  12. I spent some of this month with my Christmas joy stolen, a possible big challenge that ended up being nothing. The really lifted the burden for me. Tasty looking grub :) Sending hugs to you, dear.

  13. Da, ne možemo da dozvolimo da nas tuga savlada niti naše neraspoloženje ikome može da pomogne. Samo može da odmogne, pre svega nama samima. Uvek je bilo i lepih i groznih stvari. Neke stvari ne možemo da promenimo, ali možemo da kontrolišemo naš vlastiti svet. Tuga nikada nije rešenje jer život je privilegija i treba ga slaviti u svakom smilsu. Makar ja u to verujem...
    Hrana deluje izuzetno zaista. Ne sumnjam da je bilo preukusno :)

    1. slažem se, najlakše se prepustiti depresiji, za sve se treba boriti...a ako nećemo slaviti život, što ćemo slaviti?

  14. Woah this food looks so good! I'm currently on a train and oh boy it's making me hungry!!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…


January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.


Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…
