uitwaaien in cadzand

Zaterdag hadden we allebei (of misschien zelfs alle drie) nood aan zuurstof. Omdat te zon toch wat meer kwam piepen dan initieel voorspeld, stapten we in de wagen. Een ritje langs de nieuwe A11, dat stond vast. Emma was nog aan het dutten toen we in de buurt van Knokke reden en dus zetten we…

Toegegeven, ik was alweer even uit…

last minute wanderlust (+ contest!)

As many of you know, the hubby and I already had our fair share of vacation by heading to the US in May and June. However, since the office I’m working at is closed for two weeks during the summer months, I’m now home alone (Steven has to work this summer). One of the things…
