Little Moments #14

Week 14: on Wednesday my new Macbook Air that I ordered came in. I have been wanting one for quite a while so I was overly excited (besides all the installing that is). As some of you know, I work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer so I work from home a lot. We have a big desk set up in our living room from where I usually work on my iMac. For the last couple of months I sometimes got frustrated with working from home. As it may sound perfect, and it mostly really is, it also has some big downsides to it. You can get lonely sometimes as you always work alone and are not able to socialize with colleagues and most of my client contact is done digitally. Also working from home means a lot of distractions, for example I can’t stand it if it’s a mess around the house as it really distracts me from my work. When that’s the case I start to clean the house or run some errands instead of working. So I thought it would be a great solution to be able to work at other places or with friends every now and then. Last week I decided to go for it and bought this Macbook Air and I love the freedom it gives me! It even boosted my productiveness as I’m now also able to work from the couch or from bed in the evenings, when I’m usually tired and don’t want to sit at my desk anymore. Double win!

On Saturday morning I took it slow and enjoyed a croissant and coffee in bed with the first edition of Boom Saloon. On Sunday it felt like it was Summer, the day started out quite warm and we enjoyed the Sun on our rooftop terrace. In the afternoon we went for a long walk in the forest where Rene took this photo of me. We’re so lucky with the lovely weather lately. I try to soak up as much of it as I can because I know it won’t last- after all this is the Netherlands.
