Not pictures of them actually sleeping, sorry folks.  {Maybe-just-maybe I’m saving those for a rainy day.} The weather has been mild here in Amsterdam, compared to typical winters, which has been pretty fantastic.  In fact, I have yet to see real-live-snow-falling, can you believe that? We’ve definitely been taking advantage of the Amsterdam parks during […]


Post image for there is water everywhere

Even when it isn’t raining, you can’t escape the liquid in these low lands, but I suppose I, I just maybe, I might…totally adore the water that fills the canals & gives Amsterdam so. much. damn. charm.  See!  The charm!  There it is! {Or, maybe the creepiness, given the fact I took a picture of these […]


With our third delivery from De Krat, we were presented with fresh produce, bread, fruits & fish. Looking for a tasty way to prepare the mackerel with ingredients already stocked in our kitchen, we looked up a few recipes online. Ultimately, we ended up with two dinners & leftover lunches, fantastic. The best part?  Quick […]

I am p-r-e-t-t-y excited to be en route back to AMS today!  It has been an amazing few weeks at home, but I have definitely missed my favs. So PAB & Rox, let’s make sure we turn the heat back on in the apartment, ok?  I know it’s been “fun” conserving our resources & “saving […]


Post image for de krat, n.1

Last night we decided it would be a good idea to venture out into the windy, windy & slightly drizzly weather for dinner.  We hopped on our bikes and pedaled into the center of town.   I commented on how it wasn’t even that cold, for all the wind.  PAB noticed that it wasn’t even […]
