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.

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!! :)

When I saw this amazing holiday stamp set from Zoé de Las Cases on discount at the wonderful webshop Een Nieuw Avontuur a while ago, I knew I would regret it if I let it pass by.

Every Spring I love photographing crocuses, but I don't recall ever photographing them in January... I hope for their sake (and my own ;) the gentle winter we've been experiencing so far will persevere, and these little guys won't freeze to death before March...!

After six scary, exhausting days in the hospital, J was feeling a bit better today. There are no certainties in life, but it's a step in the right direction, and we are relieved and hopeful things will only get better from now on! :)

- A Speedy-Carve block
- Baby face wipes (for removing ink from the stamps)
- Handmade stamps
- Stamps by De Krantenkapper
If you'd like to make a stamp yourself, you can check out my tutorial here. Beware: it's very addictive!!! :)

And then something happens that puts everything in perspective. J got hospitalized on Monday... Nothing life threatening now that he's being monitored, but he is very very ill and miserable and weak and it's a hard thing to watch, since there's so little you can do. His condition hasn't improved the last few days, but we hope it will soon. And until he comes home my time will be spend shuffling between my bed, my office and the hospital.
Thankfully I had already scheduled a few happier posts over the weekend: a bit of color during grey days is always welcome.
