Home Is Where The Heart Is

I open my eyes and look around me, take in the room.
There’s the yellow roses on the sideboard right next to the wooden frame saying “Dream.Hope.Wish.Believe” , a chrystal rose standing beside it.
The old vintage radio on the other side.
On the windowsill you find a set of scented candles and in the middle an Elvish replica sword from “Lord of the rings”, one of our most favorite movies.
Below the windowsill you find the cage where my little rabbit sits, Nijntje, peacefully sleeping. A little ball of fur.
Scented candles continue to spread around the television, on the living table, the bookshelves…

On the kitchen table you find even more flowers and fresh baked cupcakes.
Upstairs you find two bedrooms, one currently being used as storage space and one cozy used as master bedroom. Painted in light and dark olive colors, our bed in the middle in light brown which causes a magnificent contrast with the olive colors. Candles on the nightstands as well along with a night lamp.

The other bedroom is painted in a sort of turquoise blue, dark and lighter. There still needs to come a desk and sleeping bench. Right now all you find in there is our huge wardrobe closet, multiple boxes packed with things and my saxophone.

This room is meant to one day serve as a child’s room as well… who knows.

I look around and take it all in, all the cozy ness, the rabbit in the living room, the candles, the blanket on the couch, … the cupcakes on the kitchen table, flowers, the pictures…

I look around and I smile.
My heart starts to beat faster.
Yes, this is home.
I am home.

So this is a post I found on a site – I’ll put the link in the bottom- and I really liked the idea.

Get together in a cosy moment with your partner and ask each other all of these or just a few of these questions.
You’re guaranteed to learn some new things about your partner.

When The Little Things Become The Big Ones

It’s in the simple things, which all of a sudden became the big ones.

Now when I’m having a nightmare and twist and turn in the middle of the night, I feel a hand reaching for mine, holding it tightly and I hear a voice softly whispering “sshhh, I’m here. It’s okay. You’re okay.” and I immediately calm down.

When I’m cold at night and shaking, I feel him holding me close next to him, warming me with his body heat.
It’s the best feeling.

Now, when I wake up early in the morning I look over to my side and see my sweetest dream laying next to me.
In all his beauty.

It’s great to feel complete now.
I don’t feel like I’m alone anymore.
Because my other, perfect half is always by my side.

Coming home from work has never been so great
cooking has never been such a fulfilling work.

It seems like we fell even more in love.
I can’t wait for what will happen next.

I can’t wait
for our beautiful future
to begin.

Hello My Lovelies

Hi there my lovelies

I know it’s been ages since I last posted anything here, but as some of you might have guessed I’ve been (and still am) super busy trying to get everything right for our big move this weekend.
As some of you might have read: my boyfriend and I are going to live together, which -if it’s the first time you move away- is a hell of a lot of work, it drives me nuts.

Our furniture was supposed to be delivered today, now it’s scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
We had problems painting our two bedrooms as well.
Basically, nothing’s gone right so far and it drives me crazy.

Work is driving me crazy as well, making me work long days without a break…
it’s hard.
I’m still determined to change work, again, but so far I’ve gotten no luck…
My bedroom is filled with boxes filled with books, dvd’s…
and you still don’t see the difference in my room … and my mom wants my room empty
as soon as possible…
ugh…

I’ll be glad when everything is in order and in it’s place.

Last weekend we went on a 3-day trip to London, but with a group. It kind of sucked.. we prefer to visit London our way, with more freedom and choice.
Madame Tussaud’s for example was an activity we spend 2 hours in.
I really don’t know why people like it that much… it really sucked.
I’ve been in Madame Tussaud’s in Amsterdam as well with school and I even liked that one better.
I expected to see all of Britain’s big idols in the museum, like for example John Cleese and such, but no…

We never actually visited anything, we just went by it or through it.
Except for Madame Tussaud’s and Windsor Castle (which was great!).

My love and I spend our free Saturday afternoon getting cosy in one of our favorite places in London:
Covent Garden. It’s a beautiful place with indoor and outdoor shops and markets and now, during Christmas period, it was even more beautiful with lights and christmas balls everywhere.

I love England so much, the country, the cities…
It feels like coming home every single time again.
We’ve missed it so much, the country, the accent, the kindness…
We’re already planning our next trip, how we’ll do it and where.

Sadly, we didn’t get the chance to go our favorite part of London:
Camden town.
It’s a place filled with punks and alternatives and rockstars.
It’s the punk/alternative part of London, where you can find an-y-thing.
I love it!
Some people might be scared when you walk around there and you see all this painted mohawk-hairstyles and all these punkers, metalheads, hippies and alternatives but if there’s one thing I learned it’s that they are friendlier than any other people in London.
It’s true.
You won’t find sweeter, less judgmental people.
They don’t judge, even if you walk around in a fur coat and a lot of bling bling.

Oh how I love England, I can’t wait to get back as soon as possible.
Like I said: It’s coming home.
And I’m really glad that my love thinks the same way about it, I made him kind of London addicted.

But like I said, we were kind of disappointed by the trip so next time: no groups, no buses, …
Also we didn’t get much sleep, so we were exhausted since we had to get up early Monday morning for work, it was hard and it did hurt. A lot.

Hope you guys had a great weekend as well, let me know!

All my love to you.
