Spring has started! Let’s celebrate with some lovely sunshine. This was in 2010 on one of the most beautiful beaches of Cape Town: Clifton 3, our favourite! Concerning sunshine, we get tons of it in our new apartment! As we live on the 9th floor with a balcony facing south, we can enjoy sunshine all day.
As you might have noticed, blog updates weren’t as regularly as I wished. Some weeks have been quite quiet. As everything has its reasons, so did I. We have just been very busy with our new apartment, which is getting more and more ‘almost finished’ (as we know interior is never finished, right?). Though we feel very much at home, which is extremely important.
Besides the home, other factors are on my mind too. I’m busy with my master thesis which asks a lot of my spare time, work which truly is a delight with all the new spring/summer collections and sports (are we going to be the champion this season again?).
So about spring, I have got enough running for me but what about you? Do you have any special plans? What do you like most about spring?
Again, with the start of a new week and a new month also the new season started. Embrace yourself, winter is coming! And boy, did we notice it. Were november soft and dry, december starts of ice cold right away. With a forecast of wet snow tomorrow, I get the chills. Though being a real Dutchie, I’m not longing for ice skating season and the Elfstedentocht. Lots of layering, warm blankets and drinking all sorts of hot beverages should keep us warm. As chocolate is always a good answer, you should keep that close.
Autumn went so fast, as always happens with fun times. But no worries, the festive season is coming. With festivities at the end of the year, december is always a busy month. As presents need to be bought, stores indulge customers with glitter, sparkles and beautifully displayed windows and shops. With the early darkness, street lights create a cosy ambience. It’s like walking into the through Christmas movies like Love Actually or Home Alone. And honestly, I love it. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying it, right?
How do you feel about the winter? Do you like ice skating and snow?
With not only a new week and an new month starting today, also a new season has started today. Meteorologically speaking, that is (seen from an astronomically point of view, autumn starts at the 23th). August has past and september has made a nice entrance. I must say that I really love the month september. Autumn is probably my favorite season of the year, thus making me looking forward to september. The weather changes from bright and sunny to more cozy and really wet, as familiar the Netherlands. Even though I’m seriously made of sugar I love a little downpour when I’m inside. Nature is changing into its absolutely stunning-best with all beautiful colours.
With the rain on the background and a hot cup of coffee, reading through a stack of the september issues from various magazines is never a punishment. Neither is it a torture to shop for nice winter outfits, scented candles and blankets. Concerning clothing, isn’t autumn the best season to shop for? I mean, you can finally start to wear real clothing again. Instead of searching through your closet to find the least warm, but enough covering clothes, you can finally pick that warm pullover and layer it over a nice shirt.
Besides, september is the month of my birthday. When I was little, I used to tell everyone that it was almost my birthday starting in July already. Nowadays I rather not let everyone know I’m getting older again (like I’m the only one..). I’ve just never been the type of person throwing around big birthday parties. I love to have my close family and friends around, but I guess the best part of the day will be the diner with my boyfriend.
For now, let’s celebrate a new season.
How do you feel about autumn? Do you like it as much as I do? What’s your favorite month?
