On Sunday I realized that today is the second birthday of Schorlemaedchen.

Yes, I know two years, really?! - Two years seem like such a short time but when I think of all the big and small moments which happened and how many images and lines I have shared on this space here it seems as if this little space here exists a lot longer ...

Like last year I would like to give something away. I am not sure yet what it will be but I will put together a nice surprise for the lovely winner. Just leave a comment below, I will draw and announce the lucky winner next week.

Thank you so much for coming by, for leaving a comment and saying 'hi'.

Is there anything you enjoyed the most in the last two years?

Maria

Congrats on the birthday! I haven't quite figured out if you're German or Danish... A mystery to me :D
But I just love your blog, and enjoy every single one of your photos!

i've just come here for the first time not so long ago, and i find it amazing that i have not found you sooner! your blog is a beautiful little place, so nice to visit. i always feel a warm welcome, like having tea and cookies at a good friend's house.

it is the nicest thing that the earth has two parts, so the seasons are split. just as we are coming into winter here in sweden, it is lovely to see all the warmth that is just coming to you down in australia!

i wish your blog the happiest birthday - and i hope you will keep going for many years more :)

Liselotte Roodbol said...

Happy birthday with your blog!! Since a couple of months I visit your blog regulary. It's nice, really nice!! I have also a blog and it's indeed weird how much you share and how time is irrelevant. I hope you will post another two years! I liked your knit photo's a lot this week. I'm also knitting at the moment :)

Liebes Schörlemädchen,

Viel Geburtstag zum Glück wünscht eine Leserin, die glücklich ist vor ein paar Monaten über deinen Blog gestolpert ist - und diesen nicht mehr missen möchte.
Danke für all die kleinen, feinen Momentaufnahmen, die auch meinen Alltag reicher machen.

Ich wünsche dir eine gute Zeit und vor allem einen schönen Frühling...

Seit ich dein Blog lese, wächst in mir die Lust auf Australien.Auf deinen Bildern sieht man all die wirklich schönen Teile, die in den Hochglanzreiseführern und Vorabendserein ausgelassen werden...Ich selbst bin eine Zeit durch Neuseeland gereist udn vermisse es sehr!
Liebe Grüße und alles Gute,

hi! first i enjoyed hamburg a lot and then - very unexpected - the same happened with sidney. thx therefor!

naa said...

happy blog birthday! And thank you for your pretty images and words, they make me happy.

Something in a mailbox from you sounds really nice, I even thought of asking you for your address sometimes to simply send you something... I don't know why and what, I mean, I love good "old-fashioned" letters and packages and I always had a feeling you do too... maybe I should really send you something... :)

Georgia said...

Happy birthday to your wonderful blog! I'm very much enjoying your take on life in Sydney - it encourages me to get out and see more of my home town!

Happy two years! Your blog is a delight. Kellie xx

Kate said...

Wow - amazing achievement, Maria! Two years is both a really short time and a really long time for. In that time I got my PhD, started working (and met you!) and got married. It's been a busy time :) xxxx

Dear Maria,

Happy second birthday! :o)

I’m a 20 year old graphic designer, and when I stumbled upon your blog one day, I couldn’t stop coming back. Thank you for inspiring me when I’m stuck at work sometimes.

In the last two years, I have gotten into a steady relationship, battled clinical depression, recovered, gotten out of the relationship (although until today he is still the guy I want to get married to, we’ll wait and see how things go) recovered from depression (completely off the medication; good riddance to anti-depressants!) and graduated from Design School. I also travelled Europe for the first time, and travelled alone for the first time (same trip). I’m not sure how to choos, so perhaps I won’t (sorry I absolutely failed at answering your question).

Please keep blogging :o)

With love, good cheer, some glitter dust and a virtual hug,
Jolyn

melski said...

Happy 2nd Birthday!! Congrats!
I've really enjoyed the glimpses of your world through your photographs & the way you enjoy the little pleasures of everyday life like food or the details or a pattern or tiling or...
Happy blogging, mel :-)

Desi said...

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum 2-jährigen!
Ich komme immer wieder gerne vorbei, weil deine Fotos so schön sind und sie mich an meine Zeit in Australien erinnern.
Ich finde, du hast hier einen sehr positiven, inspirierenden Ort geschaffen. Ruhige Fotos, ein paar Zeilen, nicht so viel Schnickschnack und Gehabe = alles gut!

hiki said...

happy birthday schorlemädchen!

Happy birthday :^)

ps. thanks for your sweet compliments :)

Barbara said...

Hello,
I really like your blog for the quaint and peaceful pictures and your music inspirations. I am so glad to know Bon Iver now!!! I think what makes your blog special is the mindful way you take in life. Honoring small moments and calm activities. Enjoying flowers and sun light on leaves. It is like taking a break when I spend time with your blog entries. When I read your lines and look at your pictures, I feel that you have created a wonderful life for yourself and your friends and family.
Thanks for sharing your world with us!
