2016 – a year full of ups and downs – but thankfully mostly ups. Now it’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and embrace 2017 with open arms, but no expectations and resolutions… well, almost no resolutions, except one – being happy – my only resolution for the new year.

I’m growing older. With every day and every second that passes by. Maybe it’s something I simply started noticing in the last few months, but I’ve got the feeling that I’m constantly being questioned about my current age. As far as I can remember, no one used to care about my age just a few years ago and I’m seriously starting to ask myself: What in this world has actually changed? Is it THAT visible, or…is it because I’m simply surrounded by too many people that are stressed about their age and about growing older. Should I feel bad about the fact that I’m growing older? And, who has come up with this “idea” that asking a woman about her age is inappropriate? Honestly, that’s one of the most stupid things I’ve ever heard.

Sunday is a perfect day to spend with the ones you love 😊, especially if it’s warm and sunny like today. The last couple of weeks were pretty stressful for me as well as for Davor. I was working 8 to 4 and after work I either went to some events or to meetings. As the semester started again, Davor goes almost every day after the work to the University, so we’ve barely seen each other. Every evening was just like: “Hey, how was your day? Good night, love you!”. Many friends ask me how do I cope with the fact that I see my husband so rarely, but I always tell them: “Over time you just get used to it. This doesn’t mean that we drifted apart, but that we miss each other even more and enjoy the moments and days we can spend together.” That is also why Sundays (at least the ones when both of us are home) are really holy for us, because these are the days we use just for us.

My Nickname Is Timo, but I´m Still Female!

Well I know the title doesn’t make that much sense in English, but hey I have to tell the story. Even though my name is Fatime, most of my friends call me Timo. Despite the fact that the nickname actually came from a movie with a monkey called Timo, I’ve always loved it. Probably because I hated my “real” name.

Through My Pregnancy Part IV

We are almost at the end of the third trimester and well guys, it’s getting serious. The expected date of birth approaches – we don’t count months any longer, we count weeks or days already. The little man can surprise us at any time.

Do I panic already? Not me, guys! In all seriousness, I’m not afraid at all. People around me ask me all the time whether I am afraid getting a baby. And I’ m not, ‘cause I don’t know what to expect. I’ve heard stories about giving a birth, hundreds and hundreds of times, but all women are different and every childbirth is unique, so I can’t know how it will be. Therefore I’m not afraid.
