Look how much valuable information we all got from each other! I know that the silence part of this blog, the quite readers who never leave a comment etc, is 90 percent more then you, wonderful people who actually are willing to be open and loud - but no matter how you chose to communicate or not communicate yourself, this is of great value for many of us and other mothers/women in the same situation out there. We can all learn and find inspiration from each other and that is a treasure!
... which leaves me to todays topic.
Once in a while I share with you some of my dear, dear friends. This one almost goes as my sister and she is a part of my closest circle just like a few others. We talk everyday on the phone or on What's up and have been doing so the last couple of 15 years. There's nothing we don't know about one and another and we've been around each others life in all sorts of roller coasters there is. I keep her presence so dearly and many times I wonder what I would do without her smart advice and warm consideration.
She has always been into fashion and interior but it's in interior decoration and visual merchandising she have bloomed and now have a great career which many can envy. She came there by hard studies in one of the most prestigious schools and by working hard throughout many years and collecting necessary contacts and life experiences. I would actually say her company wouldn't be so successful now without all of that hard struggle in the past. From the hardest fights comes the juiciest fruits. Right!
Cissi is also a mother of two, a daughter soon five years old and a little son, just four month older then Alexis and we call him Alfie. As you can see from the picture, he is a "looker" and I swear he's going to be impeccable handsome. A concurrent for Alexis for sure ...
She is married since ... God, who's counting, but she's been together with the same man more then ten years! Now she's searching for the perfect house (with a guest room for me!).
As a person she is clever, smart, a "do-er", an never ending entrepreneur, warm, funny but also has that deep and analytic side which cought us together many years back when we both where working in NK (luxury Swedish department store) selling shoes. A very cute curiosa wouldn't you say? That place was made for deeper discussions about life and though we sold a lot of Sergio Rossi, Bruno Maggli etc, we cared more for the talking and the coffee breaks where our friendship started out.
I am sincerely grateful for 1998 (or was it 1999) when that department store got us together and my life wouldn't be the same without her. Thank you my dear bigger sister for always catching me, always understanding me and always dare to speak out. Love you!
