It’s my birthday

and I cry if I want to

Al 23 jaar ben ik aanwezig op deze aardbol. Aangezien ik er verder niets over wil schrijven, deel ik vandaag mijn favoriete foto’s gemaakt in en rondom een kleine houten piramide in the middle of nowhere.

Today it’s my 23th birthday! Whoohoo. Since I don’t want to write about it, I’ll just share some of my favorite pictures taken in and around a random small wooden piramide in the middle of nowhere.


Our first destinations

English below

We kwamen aan in Mexico-stad, wat gelijk onze eerste bestemming was. De meerderheid van mijn Mexicaanse familie woont daar, door wie we ook hartelijk verwelkomt werden. Het is gek, want ik kan mijn familie door de lange afstand tussen ons niet vaak zien. Dit keer was het vier jaar geleden dat ik iedereen zag. Ondertussen was het kleine hondje van mijn oma overleden én had ik er een nichtje bij. Genoeg over mijn nostalgie, hihi.


Some nice things | List

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

Broccoli soup

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!

the reflections against the pale skin of my sweetheart | photography

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.
