Anul care a trecut ne-a demonstrat curajul din noi si ne-a ajutat sa crestem: ca familie, ca echipa, ca persoane. Incepem incet sa ne acomodam cu viata in 3. Carol ne-a adus un dar pretios: bucuria neconditionata. Am invatat de la el sa fim perseverenti. Am invatat sa fim in permanenta miscare si schimbare: azi starea de fapt e asa, maine cine stie ce va fi. Am inteles ca avem resurse fizice si psihice mult mai puternice decat credeam.
Multumim 2017 si bine ai venit 2018!
Urmeaza anul Cainelui de pamant in horoscopul chinezesc si probabil va fi un an potrivit pentru inradacinare si infaptuire. Asteptam cu interes sa vedem ce vom realiza si ne bucuram de perspectiva provocarilor viitoare.
EN: New. Again. It's 2018, January, the beginning of the year and we start all over. Or we continue, depends on the perspective. We finished the year with lots of partys and celebrations: Christmas; Carol's birthday who turned one year old and received a cake for two; New Year's Eve, which we celebrated this year with dear friends (Carol partied until 00:30, so mummy enjoyed her first late evening in a long time); and then there where the three Johns to celebrate. It was a lot of fun, good food, walks, visits, memory sharing, plans, hopes and a feeling of novlety.
The year that went by proved us we are brave and helped us grow: as a family, as a team, as persons. We slowly start to get used to living as three. Carol brought us a precious gift: unconditional joy. We learned from him to be perseverent. We learned to keep moving and embrace change. We understood tat our physical and psychical resources are strong.
Thank you 2017 and welcome 2018!
Next is the year of the ground dog in the chinese horoscope and it will probably be a year of rooting and doing.

EN: Maybe the cold is here, maybe the forest is no longer green, but the feeling of wandering is still animating us. So, we took advantage of the modern facilities and took a trip on the highway from Sibiu to Deva.
EN: The citadelle is spectacular not by the building itself, but because of the position: from the steap hill the eye is delighted with a 360 degrees beautiful view. At the feet of the hill lays the city of Deva, then come the fields, villages, mountains and the sky.
EN: Although when we went up the citadelle was covered by fog, the view was still amazing and even if the air and the sun were not ideal for photographing, we still got some pretty memories to keep.

Anul acesta a fost inceputul maturitatii pentru mine si fiecare hop depasit m-a adus mai aproape de liniste si intelegere. Cu plans, cu impotrivire, cu nemultumire si depresie, dar toate sentimente pe care le constientiez si le tin in frau fara sa ma copleseasca.
Anul acesta ma simt norocoasa si savurez viata asa cum mi-am facut-o...si realizez ca e buna tare!
EN: I sometimes stop and wonder on the date (not the exact one, while I don't really check the calendar often) and the many months that went by. This year was like the first one for me and for us and time stopped and started again on the 27th December last year.Since thenit feels like each day was a full lifetime, measured through the eyes of a little baby that is turning into a chil and a man. It's amazing to watch the fast evolution and as tiring as it feels, I'm fascinated and delighted. Although for me it has been a hard time and I still fight fear of attachment, my selfish ego that wants to convince me that life will never be the same (it's true, but it's not necessarily bad), I enjoy every moment. Somehow I start to understand that we are living a great adventure and it's more and more fun. And I slowly find my rhythm and realize that before Carol I was wasting quite a lot of time doing usless things. Now I still have enough time to paint, to read, to take long baths, to walk and even since some weeks to lay in bed and daydream.
This year was the beginning of maturity for me and each obstacle conquered got me closer to peace and understanding. With crying, fighting, unhappiness and depresion, but all these are feelings that I embrace and keep under control.
This year I feel lucky and I enjoy the life I built...it's a good one!

EN: The two of us and since some months, us three, are really big fish fans. If it were to be honest, we'd eat it every day. Carol has also found his taste in marine beings and we try to feed him tasty and healthy fish every time we eat too. Most of the times we look for the wild fish (makerel, wild salmon, sea wolf, fish caught in the Danube Delta) and sometimes we like to experiment with new tastes (that's how we disvovered how tasty Black sea fresh mussels are). So we were glad to read in the local newspaper that some fishermen from the Danube Delta were invited at the village museum to cook traditional fish soup. Even more interesting was that they cooked it with fish caught from the museum's lake.
Since we came to this city we promised to try as many activities as possible and we prefer the ones that are suitable for babies (meaning day time events, at least for me and Carol:)
