Home for the Holidays

After an entire day long delay getting to Germany because of the snow in Holland (photos soon to come) and then 9 hours of traveling (it should have only taken 3) we got to Munster! It was lovely and the food was great, (again pictures soon to come...) but now we are back home for Christmastime.

Speaking of home, one of the things I love about where I live is that I'm 10 min from the beach by car, or 20-30 by bike.

These photos are obviously from the summer, but I wanted to share them nonetheless :)

These are from the time my friends and I all went down to the beach to eat and watch the sun set.

While on the beach we had a good time being goofy

And watching the beautiful sunset

Soon there will be more winter photos! I promise! Also, thank you to those of you who are commenting, it's nice to know you're out there :)

Winter Time

Now that I've posted all those summer photographs, it's time for some winter ones. These are all from last year.

The day after Thanksgiving in NYC

The 'Winterland' in Maastricht


The Christmas Market in Aachen

And finally the frozen Canals in Holland :)

I'm off to Munster today to go to more Christmas Markets with my parents. If we can get out...there is about 8cm or 4in of snow on the ground where we are. Luckily all we have to do is get to the train station. Wish us luck!!

Installment #3

This is the last set :)

Some more sculpture...

These were later in the day, I love the sun!

And then more Lavender

They had this one gorgeous rose bush

So I took some photographs

And played with some colours

Eventually it was time for us to go, so I took one more shot of their house

Lucky for us, the sun was setting as we drove home :)

This is the Ijsselmeer, a massive lake we had to cross to get there and back. Isn't it gorgeous?

That's all from the summer, I hope they brightened your dreary day!

Installment #2

Some more summer. Especially since here in NY it's rainy and gray like nobodies business.

I love the little plants growing around the sidewalk

Just look at the textures of them all

Now onto hydrangeas :)

And a few of me!

That's Installment #2! Stick around for more soon!

Now In The Depths of Winter

I have some pictures from the brightest summer days. This is installment #1
We were in the North of Holland somewhere at my mother's friend's fantastic house, with a Beautiful garden :)

First of all, there were some great Sculptures on the way there

Then when we got there some food and drink

Then I began to bounce around their garden and take photographs!

I find it hard to believe that these two are even in the same garden

Humans in their natural habitat:

Just look at the Sky!

That's the end of Installment #1! Come back soon for more.
