Thank you for a beautiful summer

Summers like these is is where memories are made.
Moments we will treasure forever.
Days like this one.
Sunshine, friends, and family… all we need!
We gathered together to celebrate the summer and our friendships, to chill, talk, eat, laugh and be happy!

True friendships to us don’t mean we have t meet every week, or even every month or year. It doesn’t mean we talk over phone on a daily basis. We have a busy life, and our friends are busy too. But when it comes down to it, they will be there to share the important moments with us and if you need them you know you can call them anytime. And they know they can call us whenever they need us!

We loved to share the first harvest of our veggie garden with our friends in a beautifully styled BBQ garden party! The hot summer weather asked for ice cold beverages so we teamed up with the delicious brand’s  Roestig Blond Beer, Lemonaid+ & Charry tea to keep our guests fresh and hydrated!

We hope you love our homage video to our friendships and the summer!

Making art with our kids!

I am really proud of Michiel for making this video and going outside his comfort zone and doing a voiceover for the very first time!
He really wanted to participate with contributing to this blog and start making videos and blog posts. And I am so excited he is actually making a big effort to take part! So here the first of hopefully many blog and video posts from Michiel, to show you guys the dad’s perspective in our lives!

But as usual with firsts, the insecurity kicks in… and I hear him asking me  “Jolanda tell me hounestly, is it good enough!? it’s not isn’t it…”
Well, I definitely think its good enough!!! It’s honest, sincere, from the heart and real. Especially when you know that it’s the first time he had done a voiceover, which made him completely awkward. So I give him extra Bonus points for daring to push beyond his comfort zone and being open and vulnerable. That’s why I love this man.

What do you guys think!? Want to see more of his content on the site and witness him getting more comfortable with sharing his thoughts with you guys!?

Michiel about the video:
Watch our 7-year-old daughter Miley making art!
With this portrait of my daughter Miley I draw I wasn’t sure what to do with the colors, so I drew the lines and hung it on the wall for a good 6 months if not longer. Until Miley came up with the idea of giving it some color herself! I only had to tell her ones and she picked it up so fast. She loved working together with me creating this painting together and the end result could not have been any better.

 

First snowflakes…

Read this blog in English

One fluffy snowflake floating down hundreds of miles and landing gently on the soft grass in our backyard. And another! We stare in complete unbelief out our window, could it be!? I can’t remember the last time it showed enough to build a decent snowman. The kids are watching the whole morning how the snow is falling and slowly transforming the landscape into a winter wonderland… it’s still a thin veil of white fluffy frosty magic but we can’t wait any longer. We have to touch it, walk through it, feel it, taste it, play with it, and throw it!

Love to imagine that our little house is standing in a little snow globe! Snowflakes have a beautiful way of weightlessly floating around through the air.

These first magical snowflakes this winter are so welcomed, loved, and totally celebrated!

Eén pluizig sneeuwvlokje zweeft honderden kilometers omlaag en landt zachtjes op het zachte gras in onze achtertuin. En nog eentje! We staren in volledig ongeloof uit ons raam, zou het waar zijn!? Ik kan me niet herinneren wat de laatste keer was dat het genoeg gesneeuwt had om een fatsoenlijke sneeuwpop te bouwen. De kinderen kijken de hele ochtend al uit het raam hoe de sneeuw zachtjes valt en langzaam het landschap omtovert in een spierwit winterwonderland … het is nog steeds een dunne sluier van witte bevroren magie maar we kunnen gewoon niet langer wachten. We moeten het aanraken, er doorheen lopen, het voelen, proeven, ermee spelen en het gooien!

Ik kijk omhoog en stel mijzelf voor dat ons huisje in een kleine sneeuwbol staat op iemands schoorsteenmantel! Sneeuwvlokken hebben zo´n prachtige unieke manier van gewichtloos door de lucht zweven…

Er lag toen nog niet veel, maar deze eerste magische sneeuwvlokken deze winter zijn uitbundig door ons verwelkomd en geviert!
