My Favorite.. Art



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info and the upcoming subjects visit the My Favorite Meme. page.

I’m not a really big art fan. My mom is, and I love visiting museums with her and because of that I’ve been to a lot of museums. And I love visiting museums. Not necessarily because of the art, but it’s kind of the combination with that feeling museums give you. It’s charming, mysterious and looking at art makes me want to find out more about it. But telling you my favorite art piece is definitely not that easy.. It took me a while.. And I really had to go with paintings since I love those the most.. And I just wasn’t able to pick only one.. But my favorite art pieces are definitely the ‘The Night Watch’ by Rembrandt and ‘The Milkmaid’ by Johannes Vermeer.


Both are painted by Dutch painters and I grew up hearing a lot about these paintings. I’ve both seen them more than once and I just love how mysterious and interesting these paintings are. I still just really want to keep looking at them.

What is your favorite art?

My Favorite.. Book Blogger Experience



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info and the upcoming subjects visit the My Favorite Meme. page.

There are many things I love about being a book blogger. For one the community of book bloggers is amazing, and it truly feels like a family. Another thing I love is finding out about all those amazing books out there, I’m sure I wouldn’t have been aware off without being a book blogger.  

But there is one thing, one experience as a book blogger I love most and still think about a lot. For my birthday a view years ago, my husband surprised me with a trip to London. It was a one day trip, and although being in London would have been enough.. he arranged a meeting and tour through the offices of the Little, Brown Book Group. I had been receiving books from them for a while then, but I never thought I would be able to visit their office. But I did. And it was amazing.

Not only was it super fun to see their work space, and to see where they put all there books. But I was also allowed to pick some books to take home with me. I definitely thought I died and went to heaven. It was amazing. And truly my favorite book blogger experience. 

What is your favorite book blogger experience?

My Favorite.. Thing About Myself



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info and the upcoming subjects visit the My Favorite Meme. page.

Well.. Isn’t this a hard thing to write about! How do I choose these subjects?! LOL! Over the years I’ve definitely started to love myself more. When I was younger I didn’t really liked myself, so I probably would have had an even harder time writing this then than I do now. But thankfully, I grew up, got more confident and met this amazing guy who made me see that I was good the way I was.
So now I can definitely say I love several things about myself. My ability to read in busy places, my ability to take care of others but my favorite thing about myself is my ability to plan and coordinate. 

May it be in my personal life or in my job.. Planning and coordinating is definitely something I’m good at and that comes easily to me. Sometimes it can get a little out of hand when I try to plan and control too much.. but mostly I’m able to have a nice balance with my planning habits. 

And being good at planning and coordinating definitely has come in handy. Especially while planning our wedding last year. Although for some people planning can make life stressful.. for me it’s relaxing and definitely fun.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

News Update


As some of you might have noticed I haven’t been very active on Maureen’s Books lately. So I decided it’s time to share with you why that is. I’m not quitting Maureen’s Books.. But after a lot of thinking I definitely decided I just simply don’t want to stop blogging. I love book blogging, it brought me so much and I still want to blog about the books I’ve read. But I won’t be blogging much.. at least for a little while.

As some of you might already know I’m pregnant. 23 weeks at the moment, and I’m loving every minute. But.. as you moms out there already know, a lot is going on ever since I found out I was pregnant. And although I tried hard at first to balance everything: blogging, working full time as a nurse, taking care of our house, and preparing for our baby girl with doctor appointments, finding day-care, preparing the baby room etc. It just gotten to be to much. And I just can’t do everything anymore. I’m tired a lot, and life is just to busy at the moment to do everything the way I used too.

And since I won’t be able to start working less until after giving birth, blogging is the one thing I can and will have to put on a lower burn. This being said I won’t tell you how much I will be blogging.. since I just don’t want to make promises for now. When I have a review ready, I’ll post it. When I want to do a post about whatever.. I’ll do it. But I won’t make any commitments.

After August, when our baby girl is born I will think about what I will be doing then. For now.. I’m not going anywhere.. I’m just a little quieter than before.
