middelburg, netherlands

... homemade bread with gobs of butter, early morning walks with cameras and a thermos of coffee, visiting small dutch towns dressed for christmas, garden parties, sigur rós, cookbooks, apple pie, spare ribs, beer, petunias, laughing till my cheeks hurt, and feeling totally at home...

Wishing you a very merry weekend filled with love, joy, and pie!

Just before I moved here, I spent four months in Ottersum on a horse farm, right next to all sorts of other farms. The little town was enchanting, and fresh baked goods everyday were a highlight. I love, love your photos.
Merry Christmas to you, Jane!

The second picture is AMAZING, makes me wanna jump in a bike and ride all those streets and go eat pies with you and your friends.
Beautiful pictures as always and beautiful experiences (of pleasure, the pleasure of eating, watching, photographing, smelling and listening)
Never been to the Netherlands, but you do make me want to go.
Big kisses and keep enjoying like this!

Merry Christmas Jane! Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday.

I am planning on the love and joy but I might have overdone the pie at Thanksgiving. I think we are have some parfait thing? And cookies?
And hopefully a lot of chocolate.

Love the photos, as always. Everything looks crazy clean! Is that because I live in LA? ;)

Merry Christmas to you Jane!
Blessings and Joy to you and your whole family!
