OKE DAN! ZO, ZO TROTS OP WAT WE HEBBEN KLAAR STAAN!
Juist! Je hebt het goed gehoord! Ik ga nu na een break van 4 jaar het weer oppikken! Trainingen, workshops geven, en coaching in Fotografie en Brand building.

Getting a greener home

Getting a greener home

Energy friendly home
Living in a small home of only 50 square meters (=538 square feet) is one of the choices we’ve made to be more sustainable as a family. But because this is a home build in 1952, the Insolation was not what we wanted it to be. So in the last couple of years, we made some big steps in improving the insolation of our home.

Opinions… Choose: Frozen canals or blazing hot sunshine!?

Opinions… Choose: Frozen canals or blazing hot sunshine!?

Opinions matter…and everyone is always having theirs. What’s your opinion on that? What would you choose? What do you think? What would you prefer? Who do you support? But I can switch my opinions and preferences or how I feel about something just like that. Because a preference or opinion isn’t like a birthmark… you aren’t born with opinions or preferences. Nothing is set in stone, once you’ve developed an opinion about something, It’s not a lifelong decision. I’m allowed to change my opinions or preferences. That’s ok!

Dus onbeperkt genieten! Deze twee mixjes had ik al bedacht voordat ik zwanger was en maakte ze al regelmatig, maar tijdens mijn zwangerschap was het praktisch het enige waar ik trek in had om te drinken.
