Mexico, oh what a wonderful time did you give me this summer. You always seem to know how to make me fall in love with a place over and over again.
Since my mom is Mexican, Mexico is more than a summer destination for me. Not only do I want to discover the secrets and diversity of Mexico itself, I also get a chance to see my family again. To see what they’ve been up to and to meet new additions to the family. The sweetest little girl who is already more than a year old made me smile the brightest. She is a very special kid, and seeing here for the first time was amazing. All the photos and videos I had seen of my niece weren’t able to transfer her happy energy that she gives of the second she talks to you. How her little hand fits into yours. When you lift her up and she giggles. Men, she is adorable.
I think I mentioned once or twice that I wanted to make a short piece of film. A short montage of moments. So after trying to work with movie maker and making my first youtube video ever, I decided to shoot some more. Movie maker however doesn’t like me. Or anybody in that case. Simply moving one file can give you errors everywhere and after a while I decided that it just wouldn’t work. So I needed a new program to edit. And then I still needed to understand it, because there are all these functions and buttons and nicely said I am not to good at understanding digital programs. But with the help of youtube tutorials (and lowering some of my standards) I was able to make my first ever short footage clip ‘thingy’. I have no clue how to call it.
Since I don’t have the inspiration to write about anything, I want to simply share some things. I will refer to posts, and most will be quite old. But still lovely as always <3
Recipes I tried and loved
I found this recipe trough pinterest, and since I have made it so many times. I never knew that lemon tasted so good with broccoli. Also by putting the broccoli in the oven, it gets a super flavor. The ginger I left out, since neither I nor my dad likes it, sorry mom. The toppings are optional, and I leave them out if I don’t have the ingredients at hand. Seriously guys, you HAVE to try this!
If you follow me on Instagram @letsgoforthegreat, you have most likely already seen a selection of these pictures. When my parents warned me it was flowering season for the rhododendrons, it was soon clear that it was the perfect time to shoot pictures again. I haven’t touched my canon for way too long and working with T. for the first time I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Somehow many people I know don’t really like to be photographed. This includes T. But he was willing to give it a try.
