Life / Dreams

I think that being happy is the most important dream that I have, because I believe that if you're happy everything else you want to accomplish will come from there. Being happy and positive will get you further than being moody and negative. Lately I've been really into reading books about positive thinking and the like.

I really want to continue blogging. It feels like I've been blogging for what seems like forever. I always removed my blogs from the internet when I didn't feel like updating them anymore. I've been blogging on Just Aimee for a little more than a year now and I'm still not getting tired of it. It feels like home and I enjoy posting all the pictures I take and I even feel like writing more and more.

One of my biggest loves is travelling. Packing my bags for a citytrip of a few days or for a long vacation of a few weeks, I love it all. Discovering new places, different food, meeting new people, experiencing all seasons. But also the feeling you get when you're back home, the appreciation for your own bed, shower and toilet =)

I have so much more to learn, but I enjoy photography so so much. I could spend hours watching other peoples photographs. I'm just in awe of how many talented people are out there and I could only hope to achieve just a small fraction of that same talent. I hope that maybe someday I will inspire people to follow their photography dreams. 

Writing is one of the things I really like, but don't do as much as I do the other things I love. So I'm really grateful for the blogging community for inspiring me to write more. I'm looking forward to putting more words on 'paper'.

Food & Drinks / Birthday food

It was my birthday a few weeks back and I decided to make cupcakes again. Only this time I made mini cupcakes instead of the big ones. Oh and the last two pictures show marshmallows dipped in white chocolate! There was more food, but these were only pictures I took. Reminder to self: Take even more pictures!

Photography / Spring colours

My favourite thing to do on Sunday is definitely going outside for a walk. Especially now that Spring is here. What's your favourite thing to do on Sunday?

Food & Drinks / Home made sandwiches

I love eating out, but is there something better than home made sandwiches? I don't think so =) We needed some goat cheese for another dish, but we had lots left so we decided to use it for our sandwiches.

Honey mustard dressing | Salami | Goat cheese | Tomato | Onions | Herbs of choice

The sandwich on the right is the same as the one above. The one on the left has hot cheese spread and cucumber (!) on it. This combo is delicious as well.

Home / Wood Decor

The second post in my home photos series. Lots of dark wood, warm colours and a lot of faces (animals and buddha's).

Photography / Popcorn at the Library

My little brothers and I went to the library in the city and I took some quick snap shots outside. The library is surrounded by beautiful old buildings. They went home with more books than that they could carry and off course some popcorn (which this library apparently has). While waiting for them to find the books they wanted, I wondered to the library and remembered how often I always came to the library. Nowadays I wander book stores because I want to own all the books I read (I know weird, or not?), but maybe I should think about going to the library more often.
Do you go to the library often?

I love looking at old photographs and seeing the journey I'm making. In life as well as with my photography 'skills'. This are some photos I randomly choose from my archives =)
Do you look at your old photos often?

Photography / Fall during Winter that feels like Spring (sometimes)

Sometimes the weather feels like Spring, but it's still winter. That's why I'm posting some photos from fall '11. Sounds logical to me =)

Last weekend we went to a fabric market where I snapped these pretty fabrics! How cute is that oldskool Volkswagen van?!
