A weekend in Maastricht

I had the most lovely time this weekend in Maastricht, a city in the very south of the Netherlands. There was food, drinks, shopping, exploring the city and surrounding countryside, food, playing the worst game of pool ever, more shopping, oh and did I mention there was food?? ;) The weather was absolutely amazing which made it even more perfect. Good times! :)

September (So Far)

So far, September has been amazing :) I'm starting a new job in October so I'm taking some time in between to recharge. And since the weather has been absolutely lovely - the last bits of summer spoiling us with lots of sunshine and high temperatures - there was plenty of time for stuff like bike rides, picnics, the beach and a trip to the zoo!

I suspect the second half of September will bring the arrival of Fall… but so far, so good! :)

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.
