March 2013 exciting travels.....

Winter came in March to Virginia with heavy white beautiful snow! I Followed up with a trip to NYC for friends and the Jewelry trade show, Formia Design decided to take the step into new technology in welding.

My dear friend Katherine and I on her roof in NYC

back home again my daughter Josefine's art got honored by her school and on display in Charlottesville, she decided then to honor "locks of Love" with her waist long hair. ;-)

 March became a travel month once I decided to take a inspirational 5 day trip back home to Sweden for a visit,,, it was cold my very delicious!! 

EASTER then banged on the door,,,, to make sure the bunny didn't miss any blond van Beek girls he came a few days early,,,, you never know if he makes it to Jamaica!
 A Dream came true........ ending March in sun sand and salt water and are now in full work back home again with awaiting MOTHER's DAY just around the corner,,, well can I say anything else but,,, travel is good, BUT it is the greatest to LOVE your work!

Spoiling our kids or is it just frequent special moments?

In memories of myself growing up there was these special moments of joy of playing "a recorded of the tv movie" to be seen for the maybe tenth time on a Friday evening,,,,,, now,,, find your self one on the lap top or the IPad,,,, 
Nellie has a tendency to bring it one step further,,,, to be noted after I found her.... that was her LAST time with treat and electronic on the toilet ;-)

 then it is about the bubbles in the tub,,,, if my mother then actually got the "real" bubbles and not just soap,,,,
Treats of all kind even if it is for a special moment seam to have changed in the shape they come in,,,, now longer a pale, leaning, messy looking, homemade birthday cake and no longer the ice cream stays with one topping.....

so is all this so bad because it used to be different at one point in the past ,,,, this is a brand new generation with brand new expectations and access ??? 
 I think as long as we keep our minds in a loving, friendly, excited and caring state and teaching our children to still fully appritiate and remember what they might have or not, and share the special moments with them so that they remember us parents as present for them in their future memories!
 Then I think we can even remove the ice cream totally to fit more toppings!! 

Be there for your children and share their time with them, that's not spoiling our children,,,
 is my thought of the week!!

I am back into blogging ;-)

A new year has started and so has a new beginning of my blog
dont know yet whats going to be placed here but hoping I can share tips up downs of being a working mother of two! A lot have happened since last posts we keep going forward, my youngest daughter Nellie has turned 6 and I look at her with amazement over her creativity , sense of humor, stubbornness,  strong opinions and constant giving of love 

sending a strong and full with LOVE thought over to my Mother right now recovering from her spinal surgery since Tuesday, I wish so much I could have been closer to her and helped her through the pains and worries, Jag alskar dig , Mamma 
At work Formia Design I now have not only one co worker "Joan" who is "my rock" in the office and keeping myself and our client's updated with every detail
At the work bench there is now also Jordan who eagerly working his way through his training, he brings his calm, strong sense of detail and new way of looking at things, I am excited to see what future holds for him ;)
 ........more about them is to come in near future!

All these changes and help at work will hopefully get me a tiny bit more time to enjoy the motherhood and start creating new ways of bringing Formia design into the future!
A story to be continued...... is the fact of a order shipped out yesterday to a very famous, funny and well respected actress...... I am hoping to post her response and feedback very soon.....
