Balloons, hearts, flowers and other simple pleasures, illustrated by photos from Amsterdam:
Riding a bike.
Food and conversation.
Exploring new places.
Laughing - and shopping!
The hardy hortensia (French for hydrangeas) from my balcony, which emerged yet again, despite neglect while I've been traveling. Hydrangeas always remind me of my late grandmother, who had a yard full of beautiful blue and pink blooms.
The pottery in my favourite shade of aqua was handmade by Joyce Verver. Her atelier at Prinsengracht 136-138 in Amsterdam is chock-full of unique ceramics and stoneware pottery.
