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.

Back in the Saddle for 2015

by amanda on January 9, 2015

Hey there,

Well, I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say where the heck did December go? One minute it was all the fuss for end-of-school stuff, then it was our trip to NY (much more on that later), then Christmas, New Years, and well, you get the idea. Add two colds to the mix and a workload that keeps growing (in a really, really good way) and it’s safe to say it was all a distinct blur.

But I have been wanting to stay in touch here for many moons now, so I figured I would put down my paintbrush (oh yeah, hubby built me some closet shelves in the office over the holidays, too!) and check in here.

Hope your holidays were filled with good health, happy memories, and plenty of good food.
