Goodbye (Summer)

Hey there, Blogland!! I sure hope you haven't forgotten about me since I haven't been posting for TWO MONTHS…... YIKES :( Trust me, it's nothing personal!! I'm afraid I was caught in a rather unexpected shitstorm about six months ago, which turned my whole life completely upside down, and I had to focus on picking up the pieces for a little bit...

But you know what they say, right? Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure, and I managed to keep a pretty positive outlook on things throughout this whole mess. So despite everything, my summer was filled with amazing friends and family, dinner parties, good conversations, spontaneous boat rides, sparkly drinks, pizza, ice cream, babyshowers, birthday parties, Mario Kart-tournaments, shopping sprees, driving lessons and lots and lots of laughter - and I'm so incredibly grateful for that!!

Now summer is slowly fading away and I'm saying goodbye to this season - and so much more. In the fall, new doors will open and life will go on - as she always does.

Bring it on, darling. I'm ready.

Instax Love

Trying out my new Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic camera :) As much as I love my DSLR, there's nothing like the thrill of analog photography… It's a lovely challenge! Will definitely share more of the results soon! :)

A week in Austria

Last week, I decided to leave my worries behind and leave for Austria. Mountains, fresh air and a lot of  nature to explore - I had been craving the Wild for a while now, and this was exactly what I needed. We crossed streams, hiked up mountains, reached the snow, enjoyed the views, ate Kaiserschmarrn and relaxed as much as possible. Here are some snapshots of a lovely week!

Weekend Snapshots

Just a little impression of my weekend: good food, drinks and company at the Rollende Keukens-festival in Amsterdam, and finishing The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman before my holiday next week! :)

Sunday Morning

I'll be off to Austria in four weeks to enjoy the mountains! :) To make sure I'm in a bit of shape I'll try to hike as much as possible in the upcoming weeks. On Sunday morning I was accompanied by my sister, my dad and dog Pippin :)

In addition to the wonderful weather we were treated to the sight of a sunbathing slow-worm! I hadn't seen one in years so I was pretty excited - they are so pretty! :)

Looking Up (And Looking Down)

I visited Het Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam yesterday with my colleagues. A beautiful building and a very interesting museum. Afterwards we went to a cocktail workshop and dinner - good times :) Here are some snapshots.
