Our Cocktail Bar

“I drink to make other people more interesting.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

A while ago, me and Paris created our cocktail bar. The weather was warm and we saw it as an opportunity to create a small summer bar with of course lots of alcohol. We enjoy drink cocktails when the sun is shining bright. It somehow always reminds us of the days where you can sit on the balcony until the sun goes down. Unfortunately soon after, Belgian weather returned. No opportunity was given to really test our little bar. We tasted "white Lady", a cocktail with gin, lemon juice and cointreau.  A fresh drink that dated from 1919. A perfect aperitif. Here some pictures of our creation. Lets hope the summer will be here soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

Holding on and Letting go

"It's everything you wanted, it's everything you don't." ~ Ross Copperman

Sometimes we need to let go to assure your place in the future. Letting go sounds so easy. Like dropping a pen onto the floor, not caring to pick it up again. Though in reality, we eventually lift the pen from the ground, using it again to take notes. We need the pen, we need the past, but... we could as well just take the pen on the desk to make notes, neglecting the pen that has fallen. It's hard do describe the way I am feeling now, though I'm continuing to appear strong. I have to leave things behind. No, not just things. People who are actually very dear to me. But change will give me a new opportunity to, what I hope to be, a bright feature with  more opportunities. I know, in the end I will have to let go again and we all have to do it one day. But somehow it feels like a door is opening in front of me while the other behind me is closing. The door in front of me is all I ever wanted and yet the door behind me could have been just enough.

The Bucket List

“You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination.” ~ Roman Payne

Hello dear Maddies. I'm back from a skiing trip in France. The mountains were beautiful and it was so peaceful and still. But I will make a post about it later.
Now, I want to talk about my bucket list. Do you guys have a bucket list?

There are a few thing in life I want to do like:

  1. Walk the GR 10 Trail through the Pyrenees 
  2. Printing all my digital pictures, before my computer dies. (Plus a photo album is awesome) 
  3. Spending the night on the beach. 
  4. Seeing the Northern Light 
  5. Enjoying the little things in Life 
  6. ... 
I can go on with my list, but the above are to most important at the moment. I want to walk a piece of the GR 10, because I like to walk and enjoy pure nature and it's rough mountains. Plus it's a challenge and I like challenges. Nature gives me the feeling that I'm a free person.

What's on your bucket list?
