Team Bride!

Ahhh – how exciting are these news! Ok, let me rewind. My best (like seriously best best) friend Virginia is getting married next year and I am so, so excited for her! A few days ago I opened the post and received a little package that I really couldn’t get my head around. I had not gone online shopping (for once!) and I did not expect anything from anyone. When I opened it I found this super cute little notebook from Sloane Stationery with a bee (!!!) on it. Ok, those that know me, know that I am OBSESSED with bees. So I fell in love with this little notebook before I knew what it even was. When I saw the note, I almost fainted from excitement.

How cute is this? Seriously! I am now officially a part of the Team Bride and I could not be happier! What this means? I’ve got a VIP status at the wedding. Obviously (not). The cutest thing is, that all of her best / close friends received a small little notebook like mine – but each one has a different color and/or slogan on it. There are so many cute ones and she really did get the most perfect ones for each friend! Another friend received one that said “Little Miss Organised” – and if you knew that friend, trust me, you would totally agree that it’s the perfect fit!

Of course, I will keep you all updated on what happens and some photos of the wedding (if allowed by the bride) or wedding details once the time has come. Ugh, super excited! :)

Good morning! Today is another fully scheduled day with meetings, a lunch, and another afternoon of the conference (I thought it was yesterday but no, it’s today! ugh.) The change of plans – or better say: me not knowing better – kind of swirled my agenda around a bit. I ended up working a bit longer yesterday to not stress too much today. Though I still do need to get quite a bit done!

Also, my parents came to Zurich again last week Thursday! Now I get to spend my lunches not only with Zaphira, but also have Elli (my mom’s Italian Greyhound) visiting me everyday. Even though both pups love each other, they are also equally jealous and always start crying super loud when they see each other. Especially Elli really has some loud squeaking going on haha!

Baby Blues

Look at this little bundle of love! This is the friends baby that we visited over the weekend and I was sooo in love with. Seriously, this little boy basically never cries, slept 7.5h through Saturday night and only gets “loud” when he is hungry. He is such an easy baby and I really, really hope ours will be too in the future! Don’t get overly excited though, I am not pregnant nor planning to be in the next couple of years haha! There’s still too much going on in our lives and we want to enjoy the time we have for now :) Nevertheless: wouldn’t I be such a cute mom?! haha

Today I’ll be at the conference the whole day that I wrote about yesterday – let’s see what that will be like. Surely am looking forward to it!

New week, new projects

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend :) we had such a lovely time in Frankfurt visiting a few friends. It was super cozy and we spent the weekend with the 3 dogs and 2 small kids (one baby!); so so cute. The baby napped on my chest what it felt like half of the weekend and I totally fell in love. However, no babies for us yet, hehe. We still have time.

As I did not take too many photos on the weekend, I wanted to share some shots from our BBQ that we had at our place on Thursday. Samuel really outdid himself once again with the foods he bought. I especially loved the starters, which was a combination of ham, sashimi and oysters – so good!

Tomorrow I will be attending the D:Pulse Conference in Zurich which will focus on marketing trends and technologies (such as AI). I am very much looking forward to the event and happy to share some of my findings with you guys! I will, however, need to jump out of the conference in the morning to attend a rather important meeting at our office. Busy busy these days again!

So I thought about doing a small weekly overview of what my tasks are (other than the normal office days) for you guys:

Monday/today: preparing another blog post
Tuesday: Marketing and AI Conference
Wednesday: seeing a close friend over lunch, working on a collaboration; writing a blog article and taking photos in the evening
Thursday: attending a conference about Wealth Transfer (for business); researching for another personal project
Friday: going to the VET to check Zaphira’s post-surgery recovery
Saturday: hopefully golfing (depending on the weather)
Sunday: flying to Malta

I may make a weekly overview like this to post either Sundays or Mondays. What do you guys think?

Enjoying the Sunshine

What a lovely day it was yesterday! I was able to work from home as the rest of the team is out of office. It also allowed me to go out with my love and our two fur-babies and enjoy the sun at around noon. Yesterday was such an amazing weather; I really cannot get over it. Today is rather cloudy and a few drops of rain are supposed to hit down on us. Otherwise not all too much happened – a regular work day, I guess. We will have a friend over tonight for BBQ so I am looking forward to that.

I also started going to the gym again. Really not the biggest fan haha :) I guess I need to get into my routine again. But then again, it surely is healthy and allows me to calm down after a full day of stress. Or even get more energy when working out before the day starts at the office (though let’s be honest; I am not a morning person whatsoever!).

ps. sorry for the photo quality – I only had my iPhone with me and had to brighten up the photos for you to see anything :)

my two loves <3
