and then there it was

For years I wish for a white Christmas but unfortunately that's pretty rare for the last couple of years. But... we woke up and I opened the curtains and there it was! Everything covered in beautiful white. It's not a thick layer, but hey! Snow is snow! And more special, it is Pien's first snow! 
We went outside and crushed the snow under our feet. Pien was looking at it and when I held her she gently touched the coldness. She pulled back her finger but than she tried again and laughed.

a poetic beach in december

During the Christmas holidays we spent our days in Brielle and the afternoon on the 26th we drove to a beach just a little more South and we had a great time. It was cold of course but the beach was really beautiful. Long and wide and I loved the change of tides and the big yellow buoy. Also the wooden bench just stands there, waiting for the water to return, kind of poetic. After a walk we warmed ourselves with a hot beverage and in the dark we drove back home.
