The Dutch have a special word to describe “cosiness”, “comfort”, but it’s also something that goes a little beyond that. “Gezellig”. Pronounced correctly, it kinda sounds like you’re clearing your throat, but this blog explores its meaning by documenting experiences that make life richer and deeper; through food, family, and the making of a home.

Sorry for the awful delay! I can tell you now – we were on a family vacation in Mexico for the month of January. It was wonderful, exciting, stressful, tiring, the way a good vacation should be. I tried my darndest to pick up some usable Spanish and once in a while, I was successful!

I’ll provide more details later, just wanted to clock in quickly, but of course I’ve got lots more to say!

For now I’ll leave you with a photo…

I can’t wait to hear about the trip. Explains the radio silence!

Oh – do I ever love that colour combination, the shapes, textures, details. Can’t wait to see/hear about other Mexican design inspiration (and about your trip, of course!).
