A weekend treat

















Last weekend we were invited by our Swiss neighbors to spend a night in their chalet up in the Swiss Alps. We've heard so much about this place. They have rented it every winter for the last 9 years together with two other families. It is their true haven. Never did I imagine it being this cool and beautiful. True haven indeed.

It was 2 degrees Celsius when we arrived. But the ambiance in this spacious old chalet made us warm (and our jackets, hats and slippers...). I love this place!

Jay brought some homemade chili for dinner. I brought Cava (I've decided to celebrate my 50th birthday at any opportunity throughout the whole year of 2019). A glass of bubbly is always adding that little extra to any occasion. :)

A few bottles of wine later (!!!) and lots of deep conversation about life (kids growing up, marriage, rediscovering ourselves, our future plans and dreams) the temperature had crawled up to a good 13 degrees Celsius thanks to the wood pellet heater. around midnight we tucked ourselves into beds with woolly socks and flannel pyjamas and the blankets pulled up to our ears. I slept like a baby.

We spent Saturday on the hill skiing and then we were invited to stay another night. Yes please! If I only could have a grand kitchen-social-space like this at home. A swing! Shouldn't we all have a swing in our homes? I mean - helloooo! That big dining table was fitting us all at breakfast as well as dinner. And all the windows made this room so light in the day. The charm of this chalet definitely lies in its simplicity. Nothing is fancy. It is more rustic and unpretentious. Such a homey, joyful and tranquil place. No stress allowed... Did I say I love it?

Big Thank You to our dear neighbors who invited us to this magical place. It is a true gem.  This weekend will be remembered.
