Oh Paris! I cannot remember a single moment in life so far when Paris was not a good idea. And this time was no exception. My travel-buddy and I met up for a road trip from Utrecht to Paris on a thursday morning at 8am on what was probably the hottest day of the month. It was around 37°C, so air-con was very welcome…

We had decided to go to Paris because well… it’s Paris. An idea was born, a plan was made and an amazing trip was done. It coincidentally took place just the day after my 6 year blogiversary — so this whole trip also was a bit in a celebratory spirit. Not so much time was spend sightseeing, more shopping and eating.

Hello friends! Six years ago today I posted my first blog on this place. This called for some photo-ops blogger-style! I am wayyyy too self conscious for pictures on the blog, but I’ve realised that six years of keeping up with something is a pretty big feat. Now, some would say talking to yourself about life on the internet for a couple of years is hardly a big deal. But it is a pretty big deal for me. I NEVER keep up with anything. Except this. So hey… I got myself one of those horribly tacky balloons so that I can celebrate accordingly. Because, of course you absolutely need a tacky balloon to celebrate your achievements!

I’m spending the next couple of days in Paris with a friend. I’ve actually been debating taking this tacky balloon with me… you know, for the lolz.

Expect a lot of celebratory pictures of cake — and maybe a few sentimental stories here and there this summer. I just wanted to thank you guys for keeping up with me! Even though I’ve vowed to myself that I am blogging purely for my own joy and sanity, your kind words definitely keep me going. x
