Wintery Vienna (Austria)

St Stephans Cathedral in the Stephansplatz

Although it was not the high season for visiting Vienna in February, we decided on behalf of it for several reasons:
⁃ Our vacation duration was limited, only four days. In this case the only chance would be non-stop flight from Tallinn and there are not that many destinations with that criteria
⁃ As we were flying with our 1,5 year old son, we preferred to have rather short flight than long one. From Tallinn to Vienna it took only 2 hours – the same as from Tallinn to our parent’s place by car.
Obviously we were not going for a beach vacation, the temperature was pretty much the same as in Tallinn, around 2-5 degrees Celsius. The main purpose was to see much appreciated Old Town, it’s architecture, a few sightseeings and visit a museum.

Restaurant Ö

This year me and Sandor went to celebrate our relationship anniversary in a restaurant Ö. When I booked the table, I had a hint that it would be a bit fancier place than an average – my instinct was correct. For example, there’s no á la carte menu to choose your own three course dinner, instead they offer table d’hôte menu as they let you choose between two fixed meals: a seven course or eleven course dinner. As we were celebrating, we decided on behalf of eleven courses.

We were one of the first ones to arrive, but when leaving there wasn’t a single empty table left

Photoshoot with Tristan

We went to Black & White photo studio with a bunch of Moms a few weeks ago. They rent a playroom and as an extra service they offer taking photos as well. There are two quite spacious open playrooms and for photoshoot there’s a separate room with various items, such as toys, different baby carriages, baby shoes etc, that can be used. As we went there with a group, everything went quite in a hurry – I think Tristan and me were infront of the camera maximum for 6 minutes. Many said that they are kind of disappointed, but I think I’m rather pleased with the result. Here are some shots of me and Tristan:

Au revoir, Paris! Short overview

Paris, one of the most romantic cities in the World… I went there with my sister! 😊It’s just that my partner had already visited it once and for some reason was not so enthusiastic to go there again. But my sister was ready to go and so we made our 4-day super-budget trip there in September a few years ago. I loved it and would go back again if the opportunity would arise!

Happy Mothers and Social Kids

At the moment I am all about getting ready to give birth and raise a child. Yet, I believe that the foundation of happy and functioning family life is that neither parent should not forget their needs and wishes as well. Ofcourse first months are more critical, but time makes its corrections and every family creates its own rhythm and method.

In her book “The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers” Meg Meeker, M.D. has made a list of what we should not forget while raising a child in purpose of happily balanced life. The short summary would be: Continue reading “Happy Mothers and Social Kids”
