Mountain Sound


I've been craving The Wild lately. And not just the small stretches of woodland we have here in the Netherlands, but this kind of wild

For now, some doodling and a new stamp will have to do. I'm thinking about creating a series of stamps capturing my craving for The Wild. To be continued...

Retail Therapy: Early Spring


Every spring I get the massive urge to expand my wardrobe. Since I was brought up on the notion you shouldn't spend too much money on clothes (or other pretty luxuries for that matter), buying new clothes just for fun made me feel guilty for the longest time… Until a few years ago, when I decided I should be allowed to indulge once or twice a year. And indulging I have been ever since ;)

Here are some pieces I already own or love to get for these early spring days. (And YES, I should be sponsored by Zalando!!!! ;)

First Day Of Spring




Hello Blogland! Has it really been almost three weeks since my last post? THREE WEEKS??? I really intented to blog a lot this month, but then, well... I didn't ;) Sometimes I just get so caught up in daily life I forget to blog all together, and once you haven't blogged in a while it can be hard to start up again for some reason.

These past three weeks I was busy with work and daily life, all while battling a bad case of sinusitis... (Which is STILL haunting me, even after a week of antibiotics!) I guess spending almost two weeks in the hospital with J back in January/February and being worried and tired and stressed caught up with me... On the bright side: Spring arrived last week (YAY!), we went to a festival over the weekend with friends, I did some swimming, ate some pie and even spend time in our garden, trying to arrange some order to the choas (and of course failing miserably ;)

Anyway... It's good to be back! :)

An Afternoon Of Comfort Food


We are slowly easing back into normal life around here. Yesterday me and a friend went to the Bakkerswinkel in Utrecht, a lovely place where they've got the most delicious comfort food EVER. We had the hardest time deciding what to get... :) Eventually I decided to go all out with french toast made from brioche (filled with fruit & chocolate and served with cinnamon sugar), cappuccino, a fruit shake AND a scone. 


Hell yes.

EAT ALL THE FOOD!!!!!! :D

Home Sweet Home


After 12 days in the hospital J was finally discharged about a week and a half ago. He still has a way to go so he'll be homebound for a while to come... Shortly after he returned home I got struck with a bad case of the flu and had to stay in bed for over a week...

I love our home... but I'll be happy when we'll get to leave it as often as possible in the upcoming months ;) I can't wait for Spring!! :)
