December to do list

Make lots of cakes and cookies – Especially my mom’s delectable Rum Raisin cake. She makes it from memory (and eyeballing all her ingredients) so her measurements didn’t work well when I made it myself. This year, I’ll be on the lookout for a recipe that fits all her instructions and tastes just like home. Decorate the house – This one might be a little tough because we’re going to have the pitter patter of tiny paws soon! If anything,…

Welcome to the new A Daily Lee

Guys, I am so excited to announce that I have my own web domain! It’s been a long journey from where I started. This was not my first blog but it’s not going to be my last! I first began taking photos with my iPhone in 2014 and used heavy Instagram filters to edit my photos. Now I use my trusty Rebel T1i (super old, I know) and take my time editing my pictures. No more filters to make them…

Celebrating the holidays without family

The holidays are a special time to spend with family and friends but what if you couldn’t do either? More often than not, I hear that the fall/winter months are a time of pessimistic thinking and that the holidays are a huge factor in helping combat it.

If I was unable to do either one of these things (on my way to school) I would listen to the radio and creative living worlds to match the songs. Video games were not a thing in my life until I was around 8 years old. One of…

The perfect day

The definition of a perfect day can greatly vary between two people. What I consider to be perfect may be just another day to someone else. It could even be a boring day to a third party. Regardless, this is how I picture a perfect day. Morning On  Sundays we have pancakes. I’ve finally stumbled onto a recipe that we both thoroughly enjoy. We snuggle up on the couch with our plates and the TV since our place is a…

A tour of my work space

I spent a lot of time at home and half of it is working at my desk. If I’m not editing photos, or writing blog posts, I’m working on other writing projects. I also set aside some time to learn new techniques to help better my work and output. I often lose track of time because I’m so involved with the work process. I know it’s quitting time when Sander comes home from work. If we have time (after dinner,…

A year in North Holland

Today is my 1 year anniversary since coming to live in The Netherlands! What have I accomplished? I became a Dutch resident! While I have not learned the language yet, my permanent addresses is North Holland based! This happened back in November of last year but even now it’s something I like to think about. When we were at LAX checking our tickets in, people would ask when my return date was. My answer was “I’m not, I live there…
