Country life pt. 1


Today I wanted to share with you a few snaps of one of summer holidays that I spent in my grandparent's countryside! I have spent there time for too many times to count, but only this summer I saw the beauty in places that I have never even payed that much attention to. I think it is a blessing to go out of the city to the nature, especially to a place that I hold so close to my heart! I used to go to my grandparent's more often ( I even spent weeks living there in summer together with my cousins), but now as I am working and have limited vacations, I don't get to visit my grandparent's that often, nor go to the countryside. Therefore, I am trying to enjoy every opportunity I have there.

Šodien es vēlējos padalīties ar dažām bildītēm, kas ir uzņemtas vienās no vasaras brīvdienām manu vecvecāku laukos. Es laukos esmu pavadījusi vairāk laik nekā pašlaik varētu saskaitīt, bet tikai šovasar es saskatīju tādu skaistumu, kādu iepriekš pat nebiju ievērojusi. Manuprāt, ir diezgan svētīgi laiku pa laikam izbraukt no pilsētas burzmas un doties pie dabas, it īpaši, ja tas sanāk uz tādu vietu kā šo, kas ir ļoti tuva manai sirsniņai! Agrāk apciemot vecvecākus es devos daudz biežāk ( es pavadīju vairākas nedēļas dzīvojot laukos kopā ar brālēniem), bet tagad tā kā strādāju un atvaļinājumi ir ierobežoti, man nesanāk apciemot vecvecākus tik bieži, nedz arī aizbraukt uz laukiem! Tāpēc, es cenšos izbaudīt jebkuru mirkli, kad vien esmu tur, šoreiz tas sanāca caur fotoaparāta objektīvu!

Do you enjoy going to the countryside as much as I do? :)

  2. Gorgeous, Maddie! I always liked to have this weekend getaways to grandparents place. But now, since they are gone for years, I have a place like that on my own. Very big change for a city girl like me. :)

  3. Maddie, I LOVE countryside too! Your grandparent live in such dreamy and enchanting place which made me want to be there right now! You must be very fond of it, the photos are outstanding and the puppy is too sweet! Hope you have soon other chances to back there, nothing is better than enjoying the nature and all the beauty around. Kisses! xo

  13. Cik briniskigi ir tavi lauki. Es vecvecaku majas un garas brivdienas atceros ka briniskigu laiku, bet tad kad bija japaliek uz nedelam nemaz tik loti negribejas. Bija tik zel redzam mammu aizbraucam. Likas, ka atstas uz visu muzu. Hahaha! Bet ja paraugos atpakal, tad dzivojam zali un jautri.
