Easter morning

Easter 1

As a big fan of breakfast, I love to have a big breakfast on Easter morning. My parents joined us again this year for a traditional and cozy morning at the table. This year we might’ve overdone the chocolate part though as I even started to get headaches this week, I think due to a chocolate overdosis (whoops). So I’m actually glad we can go back to a chocolate free week again after today. Easter 2 Easter 3 Easter 4

Look at this little rhubarb strawberry jam that I bought, it’s so cute!

A Week In The Czech Republic #1

Czech Republic 1

At the end of February we went on a week trip to the Czech Republic with our family. We stayed in a house at the brink of a small village called Žacléř. The village lies in the North of the Czech Republic within walking distance from the border with Poland. I have been to the Czech Republic several times visiting Prague, Brno and the beautiful castle Karlštejn among other things. The bigger cities are looking stunning with their characteristic architecture, but outside of the cities you come across many abandoned buildings and houses. However a lot of these buildings are in a bad state and could use an overhaul. The houses are in all different colors- some are yellow, others are green or blue. It gives off a somewhat moody atmosphere, which I really seem to like these days. We arrived on a grey Saturday afternoon and went for a little walk. It hadn’t snowed much yet when we arrived (although the ski pistes were open). A little further up the road from where we were staying we found a little bit more snow which made me so happy. It was already more snow than we’ve had seen in the last three years in the Netherlands.

We went to bed early that evening, everyone tired from the 10 hour trip of that day. We woke up early and I looked out of the window to feel my heart pounding; I was looking at a beautiful white winter wonderland! I decided to make a quick cup of coffee and to drink it outside, something I really enjoy doing whenever it’s snowing. I loved to finally hear the snow crackle under my snowboots again. Later that day we hired snowboards and ski’s to go down to the piste for the first time.

New Tea From Teastreet

February hasn’t been a very good month for me so I’m happy March is here and I’m so ready for some early Spring days. We ordered tea from Teastreet after drinking it at Friday Next in Amsterdam. We received our order the following day including a handwritten thank you card (love that!). Their chamomile tea is my  favorite tea at the moment.

Tulips

February was the month of tulips. I bought tulips every week and they made me so happy in spite of all the bad things that happened.

Overtoom Amsterdam

On a Saturday in Amsterdam I spotted these pretty houses on the Overtoom in Amsterdam. I especially love the architecture of that house in the middle!

Favorite Alley in HaarlemHaarlem

I really like to explore the hidden alley’s in Haarlem, this one is by far my favorite. It’s always so green no matter what season we’re in and it must be amazing to live in one of these houses.

Zacler, Czech RepublicFebruary ended with us travelling to the Czech Republic for a week of snowboarding and skiing. When we arrived it hadn’t snowed yet but it looked so pretty thanks to all these moody colours. More photos from our trip are coming later this week.
