Pretty Pics Thursday [10] beach & big news!

Welcome to Pretty Pics Thursday [10] beach & big news! Normally it’s without words that I’m showing you some pics or printables, but this week I need to share some really exciting news! I will have to change my “About me” page a little tiny bit, instead of it being “kindergarten teacher, now SAHM” it will be the other way round! “Used to be SAHM, now kindergarten teacher” or something like that! I will be going back to teaching kindergarten kids starting in September!!!! I’m so excited and also a little overwhelmed and there will be a lot of change around here with me working full time again. I haven’t been working outside the house for a long time, it will be fun and I’m sure I’ll miss having all the freedom being at home and being flexible as well, but changes are good I think! I always loved my job, working with kids, especially the little ones, is so rewarding and it’s just the best job in the world for me, well, right after being a mom of course! 

As for blogging, my other love, lol, I won’t in the world give it up, in fact, I just have to organize myself really well and it’ll all fall into place I’m sure. I’m really good at organizing, so it should be a piece of cake! Something will probably have to give, I mean as much as I’d love to be superwoman, I’m not, so I won’t be able to do it all. I’ll give up cleaning the house instead! Find someone who helps me with that and it’ll all be good! It’ll be hard to not be in control of it all, but the other day I read a fun quote someone posted on Facebook saying: You just need to pull an Elsa and let it go! Get it? Elsa from Frozen, lol, love it! Well, I have to do that!

My girls are super excited for me as well, they love the idea of Momy working again, well, for now they do. They are in school all day themselves and the great thing is that my husband is working from home, so if anything, he’ll be here if they get sick and need to stay home. That was my biggest worry actually, “when they are sick, I have to leave for work” and I’m not sure about how I’ll feel when that day comes, but I’ll have to manage. I know they’ll be fine with Daddy so that’s a big relief.

Well, with all that being said, I’ll show you some beach pics this time! Relaxing! I have time to relax and get ready until September! This is from the other night, we went for a drink at the beach, where there’s this little cafe/bar and we enjoyed the sunset!

    Congratulations on your new job! I wish you the best of luck with it! I have thought about going back to teaching too but I never taught at the elementary school level, only preschool. Now that I have my bachelor’s though, it would be a fun new adventure! Love your pictures of that beach! I love palm trees! Your pictures make me want to go to Florida or Hawaii right now, LOL!

    Where to start? Your big news or your beautiful photos? I’ll start with your big news. Congratulations! I can tell you are very excited and that is all that matters since you know your girls will be well taken care of. It sounds like you are one of those people who were born to be a kindergarten teacher…so follow your calling. And, I do believe that we are at our most productive when we are busy…especially if we are well organized…which you do seem to be.
    Now those photos! Absolutely beautiful. Is that close to your home?What a treat if it is. Thanks for sharing those beautiful photos of your home. Were you on the Atlantic or the Med? If the Atlantic…I’ll go down and have a drink and we can cheers across the ocean!

    • Katrin
      02/07/2016 at 08:48

      Aww, Thanks so much friend, I appreciate your kind words always Lynn! I am excited and it’ll be all ok I think. Just takes some time to adjust and be organized I think. I have time to slowly get it all going. The photos are from “our” beach, right were we live. We don’t go often enough, well, I don’t go often enough, you know, sometimes I forget I live right next to the Atlantic! Cheers to you across the ocean!

    I am so happy for you and glad that you will still continue this Kreativ blog- good for you! I was a single Mother of 3 children- it wasn’t always easy. I am very blessed to have successful adult children and 1 Grandson. I also know about working with young children as I was a special needs pediatric nurse( until I retired after 45 yrs.). I never felt like I was working because I loved what I was doing. I’m sure you will make everything work, especially with a helpful husband. Thank-you for the lovely beach photos. Wonderful post, as always!

    • Katrin
      01/07/2016 at 16:18

      Ellen, I appreciate your kind words very much! Thank you! I imagine how hard it must have been for you as a single mom, in fact I can’t even imagine doing it all! I’m happy that your children are successful and I bet it’s fun to have a grandson! Hands down to you, a nurse must be a very challenging job and especially in the special needs sector! Isn’t it just the Best when you find something you love and you make a living with it and it doesn’t feel like it’s the work you have to do? I feel very blessed to have my husbands support and am confident that it’ll work all out. I’ve got some time to get organized and get ready for it all 🙂 have a lovely weekend my friend!

    Aw, congrats Katrin! Going back to work to something you love and enjoy is the best way to do it and I’m excited for you. Working and blogging is a challenge, but I’m sure you will find the schedule that will work for you. The beach pictures are beautiful. Thanks for sharing 🙂
    Have a lovely rest of the week!

      01/07/2016 at 16:10

      Aww, Thanks so much Laurie! I appreciate it! I am excited and a bit scared as well. Oh well, I’m an introvert, i have to get used to the thought and I’ll be fine, lol! 🙂
