Happy birthday Booker

This post is a day late because we wanted to celebrate Booker’s first birthday! She was born September 15, 2016. We brought her home in mid November and we haven’t looked back since. I made her a cake with this recipe and it came out pretty well. I should have trimmed more of the cake to make it a perfect square but I figured Booker wouldn’t care and I’ll get a better cake pan just for her birthday cakes. I also…

Langevelderslag strand, The Netherlands

When summer comes to mind, what else follows? Beautifully tall cups of iced tea, sitting outside with ice cream while enjoying a cool breeze in the shade, and of course, the beach. So when Sander’s sister asked if we wanted to join her and her friend for a walk on the beach with all of our dogs, we couldn’t say no. The unique part of summer here, is that the sun sets around 10pm. So we arranged to meet up…

Both of them are Friese Stabij mixes and are pretty common in the Netherlands. I’m…

And if you haven’t offically met Books, here she is!…

Let it snow

According to everyone, this has been the warmest winter in years so imagine my surprise to wake up and see the landscape frosted over. I had been hoping to wake up to a white Christmas but it was still too warm. Now we have had light frost on the trees and ground before but this was probably as close to a winter wonderland as it was going to get. The air was so crisp and refreshing but the ground was…

Booker, de kleine poot

Here it is! The post you have been waiting for, we got a puppy! When I first moved here at the apartment was very peaceful. All we had was a cat and she slept 95% of the day. Most of the noise was created when Sander and I spent time together and the rest of the time the home was punctuated with little noises from the neighbors. For three whole months I spent working in silence without interruption from our…
