Yankee Candle

Today I'm burning Black Coconut. 
I love the smell (and the taste!) of coconut and
 I love the label and the color of the wax.

I will definately buy this one again.

Building sand castles

We spent a week in the Netherlands in a 
house just behind the dunes...

I rode a bike again for the first time in 10 
(perhaps 15) years (and it felt really good) ...

... and the kids (young and old) built a sand 
castle almost every day.

One more week till school starts.

Tour de France

The Tour de France cyclists will pass through
Luxembourg in a 115 km stretch between the
 north and south of the country today.

Yes, 115 km and you have passed the whole
 country from north to south.
It is that small!
By the way, they will pass through our neighbor
 village (we live in the south west of the country).

Mother's Day

I received these lovely handmade presents from
 my kids for Mother's Day this morning.

^ These are painted cobblestones, so cute.

"Great job Mom, I turned out awesome".

The Abbey Bookshop in Paris

I regret not having entered this bookshop in Paris.
It looked amazing.

The problem was that I really couldn't buy book
 as we were both carrying a small backpack only.
 We asked the owner permission for the
 pictures we took outside, but going inside,
 taking pictures and leaving without a book just
 didn't feel very polite.

The boys gave our youngest a slack-line for 
his 12th birthday. And he loves it.
 Today we went to the local park where we
 found two perfect trees. So much fun!

 I would rather drink tea in a French caf√©

or eat an ice cream with a macaron,

but I'm doing laundry instead ;)

Project garden shed

Remember our garden shed?

It's not completely ready yet, 
but it is looking so much better.

And the clematis we bought a couple
 of months ago started to bloom.

What a beautiful flowers!
