Sushi & babies


IMG_7229-2kopie

A couple of weekends ago, our neighbors invited us for sushi. I tried this once and was very sick after, but after seeing how much everyone loves sushi and knowing that our host was Japanese herself, I decided to give it another shot. They bought fresh fish, rice and avocado and the guys actually made the sushi voor the girls. It was delicious! The babies loved the rice too. You can probably imagine that the rice was EVERYWHERE, right?! Eating sushi is difficult for someone like me who never before ate with chopsticks, so I made a pretty big mess myself. In the end I became better at it though and I was so happy to give this meal another try! Can’t wait to have it again! Continue reading

Climbing to freedom

When you’re driving around in the Joshua Tree park all you see around you are trees, cacti and rocks. A lot of rocks. When arriving there all I could think about was that I really wanted to climb on those rocks and get views that were even more amazing than the views we had from the ground. My friend Coline and I decided to climb all the way up and the view didn’t disappoint at all. Even though it’s pretty dangerous to climb there and even though there is so much risk to fall or to hurt yourself, we did pretty well and the views were amazing. I got some scratches on my hands and knees during the climb, but I had my adventurous moment and I felt free on there, FREE! 😉

I saw amazing things as I was standing there and I was thinking how happy I am to be living in California and to be able to travel around with amazing people. I’m living the life guys and I couldn’t have been happier! Continue reading

Sunsets & Friends

I’ve said it many times already, but this place is heaven on earth. California has the most gorgeous sunsets and driving off to the beach to watch the sunset after a busy day is just one of those things that give your day a perfect ending. For some of you, it might not always be possible to go to the beach, but if you have the chance to go and it’s not too far away, I highly recommend you to just stop making excuses and to just go for it!  Continue reading

Cake Lover

After all the latest travel posts, I decided that it was time to share some more pictures of people/kids. Kids are always my favorite photography subject. They are cute, spontaneous and they often really like being in pictures. I took all these pictures on Slaiden’s first birthday party. I personally love the pictures of the babies eating cake and the pictures of Slaiden with his cousins Ashley and Logan. They are super cute and sweet kids and they love their baby cousin!

Superbowl madness

Football is a great part of the American culture. As I mentioned on the blog in one of my previous messages, the people I live with watch lots of football. Weekend means relaxing, meeting up with friends and neighbors and watching football all day long. Past Sunday was the most important game day of the year for football lovers, the SuperBowl.  Continue reading

My first Thanksgiving

Last week, I celebrated my first Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful experience, with friends that feel like family. I love how easily those people I celebrated it with let me into their family. I feel so comfortable with them and I’m incredibly thankful for having experienced it with them. I stayed in Palm Desert for the whole Thanksgiving week and it was so amazing! We had the yummiest food all week long! Continue reading
