All in one

Gas station. Car wash. Dog wash. Extra-large laundry station. Delifrance. Fresh orange juice. Friendly staff. This is the “All in One” concept at the “Pitstop” in Barendrecht. You wouldn’t typically think that a “Pitstop” location is photo worthy, but this one makes you think again. Its concept offers way more than a normal gas stop […]

Run like you stole somethin’!

This past Sunday, Hans and I took the morning and afternoon to watch hundreds of thousands of insane runners take on the Rotterdam Marathon and 10K. There were a handful of cheetah like Kenyans, and a lot of other awesome Dutchies running proudly through the city of Rotterdam. This was especially fun for us, since […]

These boots were made for walkin’

Uggs. Little girl Uggs. Sweet bows on the sweet little girl Uggs. These were the newest addition to our favorite daddy-daughter duo. We started in the forest searching for sheep, and ended up on a playground bouncing and playing together. Though the Uggs had to come off for the playground; it was adorable to see […]

Adventures in Vlieland

This past weekend we were able to take a mini getaway to the gorgeous Dutch island, Vlieland. To sum it up in three words: relaxing, relaxation, relaxed. Did I mention the word relax? This island has an endless beach that you can walk for miles, gorgeous dunes that are perfect for dogs with a tennis […]

The van der Posts take Berlin

Last week, the van der Posts took on Berlin as a family. Hans, along with his parents and I visited his brother in Berlin to celebrate Lex’ 60th birthday!! While it was nearly freezing, we enjoyed a gorgeous white snowfall as well! To me, winter is miserable unless you have lovely white snow to accompany […]

A Warm Winter Wedding

However, this December 28 was none of those things. Though it was a warmer winter day, we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine for the gorgeous wedding day of […]

Holiday Cheer

Anytime we get to work with this sweet father-daughter combo is a cheerful day. The quote from William Shakespeare suits her perfectly: “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” I love seeing the independence and sweet yet feisty attitude from this precious little girl. A photo shoot with her is always a blast. She […]

A Day in the Leaves

I’ve quickly learned that weather in the Netherlands can be tricky. Some days are windy and you can barely stand straight, some include a constant light drizzle of rain while others rain like cats and dogs. (Little American saying for you…) But no matter the weather, my talented husband combined with the delightful Renaud family […]

Dutch Wedding for the Win

A little over a month ago, Hans and I picked up our wonderful little life on Curacao and moved it to Hans’ hometown, Rotterdam. Lots of people told me I would regret it, but so far I’m one happy camper who is soaking up the city life for all that its worth. One of my […]
