Celebrating 8 Years In Cyprus Or 8 Things I Love About My Life Here

Cyprus, Limassol, beachYesterday (10 February 2017) I woke up early as usual on school days. I got up and went to do my morning routines – preparing breakfast for my daughter, tea, coffee; then I took her to school and the day continued in its habitual rhythm.

8 years earlier it wasn’t a regular day. It was a day, that became a door into my new life. 8 years earlier, I woke up with the dawn. Sleep hardly visited me that night. I was waking up every 10 minutes checking the time. My daughter, who was year and half then, and I, were about to have our first flight. We were flying to Cyprus to join my husband, who was already living and working here. He arrived a little under year and a half prior to us. Our daughter was only two months, when my husband came here. It was one of the hardest periods in our life together. We just had a baby and he had to leave and look for a better life opportunity. I don’t even want to remember that period.

I Decided To Move After All

snailSo, after a very unpopular poll on my blog ;), I did my own research and took a decision to change the theme of my blog.
I am very sad to part with Twenty Eleven, which I adore, but it’s only a blog theme after all. I moved to Twenty Twelve, a theme I never paid much attention to before, but with which I fell in love recently.
It turns out it is the first fully responsive theme, more than Twenty Eleven. It also keeps the sidebar on post pages and has better navigation between Previous/Next posts.
Welcome to my new-looking blog with a perfectly simple and minimalistic, but versatile theme. Exactly the way I love a blog to be.
Happy blogging!

UPDATE: I am currently back to Twenty Eleven and not sure until when. Both Twenty Eleven and Twenty Twelve combine features in them that I would like to find in one single theme. Still looking for “the one”. 

Which Theme Do You Like More?

wordpressThis is mostly for fun but I do need your help 🙂

I am a sucker for themes, that are narrow, simplistic, minimal. I don’t like the new big, modern themes. They serve their purpose, but not mine, which is for a small personal blog.

I like stylish, but minimalistic fonts, preferably San Serif type. I like them on white background and almost black color, the size 14-15px.

My two most favorite themes are Twenty Eleven and Twenty Twelve. I also like Twenty Ten, but unfortunately it is not responsive.
