Photography is not all about people looking cute, having a nice smile or being photogenic. For me it’s more about capturing moments and seeing happiness in people without even seeing their facial expression. I love this picture because it has everything what I just said. It’s a young family who took their 2 year old and 1 month old out to see the sunset. It’s little moments like this that make life so beautiful. The kids might not remember this moment, but when they look back at this picture in a couple of years, they will be able to see how great it is to enjoy the little things in life with ones you love.

Home is not a place. It’s a feeling!
Ever since the beginning of the year, we’ve been trying to go see as many sunsets as possible and they have been amazing. I’ve seen all kinds of gorgeous ‘paintings in the sky’. The sky just gets a mix of pink, blue, purple and yellow and it’s hard not to be amazed by its beauty. Continue reading
Paul’s dutch cousins are in town for a whole month and that means that there are/were lots of really fun activities planned. They went to Vegas for Halloween, the Grand Canyon, Sacramento, Seattle (to watch the Seahawks play) and so on. They also did a lot of things in our little beach town here. They went biking, are planning a fish trip and they went sailing. After they spent the afternoon on the water, Stacy, Slaiden and I went over to the marina and got on the boat to take a little tour on the water. It was amazing! Continue reading
Hi guys! I wanted to give a little update to anyone who’s reading my blog. I’ve been traveling for a couple of weeks now and haven’t found the time to post a lot of pictures. I’m currently in San Pedro Sula, Honduras visiting friends and new places I haven’t been to before. I’m taking a lot of pictures and video footage and hope to update the blog as soon as possible. Starting in August I’ll post frequently again like I used to, but for now I just needed a little break to fully relax before I start school and work again in August.
Thank you so much for understanding!
PS: This picture was taken above Phoenix and I’ve never seen the sky being so pretty and pink before! Gorgeous view!
I love seeing the sunset. I love it while sitting down, while standing up. I love it alone or in the company of good friends. I love it at the beach and in Joshua Tree. A sunset is a gift. It can’t make you not dream away and think about how lucky you are to live the life you’re living. Continue reading
Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.
As you guys know, I’m following this running schedule that I set up a couple of weeks ago. In December and January I did a great job on following this schedule, but for the last 3 weeks I was first injured and than sick, so I really couldn’t run. Last Monday I started working out again and let me tell you, it was so hard to even just run 3 miles. I felt so out of shape!
I kept going through with the schedule though and in the weekend I ran so much. On Saturday I ran 8 miles and on Sunday I ran 10 miles! It was the first time I ran that far! For my Belgian followers, this is 16 km! I ran it in 1:24:50, which is a pretty good time I think. I want to run the half marathon I’m training for in 1:50:00. I think that’s going to be pretty hard for me still, but I have 11 more weeks to train for that. I’m just telling you guys this, not to make you feel bad about yourself or to make it look like I’m perfect in what I’m doing. No, I’m telling you guys this because I’m a human, just like everyone else, who loves cupcakes and pizza and who actually has a hard time to stay in shape and to be healthy. Yet, even though it’s hard, I went through with it, and I’m motivated to keep on running the extra mile, until I’m fully satisfied. Continue reading
I’ve said it many times already, but this place is heaven on earth. California has the most gorgeous sunsets and driving off to the beach to watch the sunset after a busy day is just one of those things that give your day a perfect ending. For some of you, it might not always be possible to go to the beach, but if you have the chance to go and it’s not too far away, I highly recommend you to just stop making excuses and to just go for it!

As promised in one of my previous posts here is the other half of the pictures I took at the InstaMeet. Enjoy the beautiful sunset! 😉 Continue reading
While browsing through Instagram I found this really talented guy @petehalvorsen who was always posting these amazing videos of the place where I’m currently living.
On one of his pictures he mentioned something about an InstaMeet which really caught my attention. Saturday was the day so I went there and took a bunch of pictures just like all the other people who were there. Continue reading
On Wednesday I was playing with the baby when Paul called me and told me to go to the balcony. When I went up there I couldn’t believe what I saw! I enjoyed the view for some minutes and then got my camera (of course!). Continue reading
