This Blog has Moved

After five years of blogging, I am announcing that my prose has dried up. It didn't happen suddenly. I was neglecting it and constantly felt I was behind and should do something about it. I made promises to refreshen it, to start it over, to get it done... But, didn't. So, I stopped doing it altogether. Bye bye, blog.

The good news is: You can continue to follow my posts on Instagram. See you there!

Isn't it funny when you check the photos of your phone and you get this impression of what you've been up to lately. Well, this is how life looks from my perspective.

Kids, dogs, home, sauna, work lunches, walks by the sea. Love, life, happiness.

Easter Holiday

It is Thursday evening and I feel just wonderful. Our Easter holiday has just started. I am home waiting for Maia to come home from a friend's house and Luis from soccer practice. And I have a surprise for them in the kitchen...

Four days just vegging around, just wonderful! Maia will go to my mom's house but Luis and I plan to stay in Helsinki. I have yoga classes and Luis has... a social life, I guess. He begged to stay home to hang out with his friends over the few free days from school. And I said okay.

Happy Easter everyone!

Bruxelles, je t'aime!

Horrified, I've read and watched the news today! 
Here's to my lovely former home city Brussels and all it means to me. 
It seems the world has changed into a horrible place! 
So many dead and injured for disgusting hatred! 

Brussels, I will always love you!

Life Hack #5 - Save Money

How about SAVING SOME MONEY this year? Here's something I found on Pinterest: a money saving challenge that seems like relatively easy-piecey to do. At least in the beginning... Maia and I are so doing this! We've actually already SPENT the money: a new MacBook Air for me and and iPad Mini for her in December. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

The instructions from this BLOG are extremely simple:

Here's the name of the game!
Each week of the year, you save that much in dollars!
Week ONE: You save $1
Week TWO: You save $2
Week THREE: You save $3
