Morning Mountains

a lifestyle blog by Grace Sawford


hello guys! it is October 30th and i can't believe a year went by so fast. i don't know why it feels like the last past years are passing so quickly. do you feel the same? i guess it is because i am growing old and now i live in another country i get to take care all by myself and i have only a little time left, especially on weekdays. but i am really grateful for this and i like it being an adult.

yesterday hurricane Herwart, whose wind gusts reached 180 kph (112 mph), hit eastern German and caused flood at the river Elbe and many train connections to shut down in several German northern states. it was really dark and windy, though i still saw few people at the bus stop and walk on the streets. the powerful wind could blow over cars but the traffic on the highway was good enough that we got home safely. 

despite it all we drove to my man's parents, who are about 63 miles away from our city to lunch together. it has been our weekend ritual to have some lunch or dinner together and play card games or board games. the food was amazing i had to talk about it all the way home. his mom literally can cook the best German food! it is definitely worth the ride.

you know, this kind of natural disaster makes you want to stay home all day. it is normal to feel like this. it is gray and rainy outside (not even try to mention the hurricane) and everybody wants to be safe. everybody wants comfort. but the truth is, there's always gonna be danger out there. you can't control these things. all you really can do is be careful and do what you gotta do.

Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.

..and it is true. it is the best feeling to have in the whole world. that's why it is important to maintain relationships and build a home you always want to because you have to live with it. after 10 months of moving into this house, we are done with the decoration and we are happy about it. it is those little things that make you cozy, like i always want to have some kitchen wall art and look at them! magnifique!

this is my favorite outfit of the season! i am into red since the weather outside is getting frightful. i don't want to blend in with the surroundings. autumn makes the city indeed look pretty, but once in a while i don't want to do that. and i can't help but mention that these trousers are the best find in Zara. it is so cute and comfy for colder days because i am tired of jeans! i might need it in winter anytime but until then nothing but trousers!

i match them with my red sweater and a wool beret. with a simple black leather ankle boots this outfit turns into a classic look, and perfect for a brunch or sunday strolling. what do you think?


until then.


thanks babe! have a lovely day x
