Goodbye December, Hello January

I wish you all a happy new year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 went by. I have no special resolutions for this year but I look forward to take my career as a freelance illustrator to a new level. 2014 has been a great year for me. I started my freelance career and it made me beyond happy to finally do something in my life that I truly loved. Work didn’t seem like work anymore but more like a daily hobby in which I could express my creativity. I can’t wait to start working on new idea’s and concepts this week!

January just started but the days are already getting longer again. Yesterday it was getting dark around 17.15 pm instead of 16.30 pm just two weeks ago. Can’t wait for spring! Hope it will come early again this year. December was a great month filled with a trip to Berlin and a lot of celebrations. Here are some of my favorite moments in photo’s:tischendorf

tischendorf 2

One of my favorite places in Berlin is Tischendorf. It is a great spot to spend a morning/afternoon enjoying a cups of coffee and cake. The interior of Tischendorf is completely vintage and therefore feels like a cozy livingroom. We enjoyed a big piece of carrotcake which is a must try!

airbnb BerlinWe rented a lovely Airbnb appartment in Prenzlauer Berg, my favorite neighbourhood in Berlin. Our host, Lisa, was very nice and left us some great recommendations. Her appartment had a great interior and we fell in love with her table. I love wood so much!

Berlin is just a great city. We’ve been to so many cute coffee places and stores while walking around in the city. I could definitely see myself living there one day.

An other favorite place to have coffee in Berlin is Five Elephant, they have some awesome maps on the wall! We also bought a bag of beans to take home with us.

When we got back home we enjoyed the beans we brought with us. Hoping to go back to Berlin somewhere in spring/summer.
