Thank you for the well wishes!

{hans gifted me with this beautiful spool of ribbon (& yogurt covered strawberries…& rose napkins) }

We celebrated St. Maarten’s day– the neighborhood kids carried their lanterns & sang at the doors; grownups passed out candy. Hans took Little Man out with his beautiful little lantern from Hanoi & I stayed home on candy-duty. Little Guy got a big kick out of it all- had it down quite fast! Go to door, sing, get candy. Funny though, he had no interest in eating any of it…probably because he doesn’t really know what candy is {!} I saved a few pieces & hid them away for an occasional treat {uhm for him, not me…}

2 of our friends were sweet enough to hang out at the house so Hans & I could go out to dinner. It was sooo nice to sit quietly, have a few drinks, eat yummy food & talk. Of course, it was  mostly about how cool our little boy is :)

Today also marks 8 years since I moved to the Netherlands. 8 years. Despite all of my traveling before that move, I never imagined I would actually be living here. In Holland.

{creature 2 for Muffin done!}

My awesome husband came home early yesterday & surprised me with this for our anniversary & my birthday {tomorrow…why-o-why}.

It was a perfect evening at home. Mini had a bath, the three of us played, bedtime went off without a hitch, I made garlic penne & opened a bottle of wine. Bliss!

If you love garlic then seriously, this is for you. We are garlic sluts, yes we are. I think I have finally perfected it. Do not kiss anyone who hasn’t eaten it with you.

  • 8 cloves of garlic smashed, sauteed in olive oil {don’t let it get too brown or burn}.
  • 30 {YES} turns to a grinder with dried hot red chili into the garlic & oil.
  • Pour over penne, mix well.
  • Parmesan cheese.

Heaven.
