It’s nearly Christmas already, and we’re prepared! We’ve been celebrating Christmas this whole month already. Nice food and drink, lighting candles, afternoons with warm mulled apple juice. These things make everything a little bit more special. We’ve been trying some new recipes for tasty oven dishes and soups: proper winter food!
Our house is very cozy at the moment, and has seen the addition of a brand new rug! We’ve been wanting one for a long time, and finally found one to our liking. We were very pleased that the company we got it from (Louis de Poortere) managed to deliver it before Christmas. It’s a wonderful rug, feeling great under foot. With its grey blue colours, it’s a perfect fit for our living room.
On the 11th of December we were treated to a nice blanket of snow, enough to transform the world into a rather magical place. Everything was covered with a cloak of purest white, turning our surroundings into the domain of a fairy tale. Sadly the snow lasted only a day, but allowed us to have a little bit of a white christmas!
We want to wish you all a very joyous Christmas period, and all the best wishes for 2018!
