The end of an era

At least, for me.

This blog used to be similar to a house for me. It was a little home where I could light candles, spend hours writing - I could even hop over to neighbors' houses when I was tired of my own house, to see what they had written and to get inspired. It hasn't been like that for quite some time and though I have often tried it, blowing new life into this English house of mine has never quite worked.

It's not that I'm sick of writing. Writing is becoming a more and more prominent aspect of my life and I love it. The thing is that my interests have changed - rather than typing about coffee places and plants I now like playing with words and I feel like my native language, Dutch, is more suitable for that purpose than English.

I'm not killing off this blog. Maybe I'll even write something new in the future.. but for now I don't want to get anyone's hopes up.

I'd like to redirect you to my Dutch blog, or if you don't speak Dutch, to my Instagram.

My e-mail address also still works:

Thank you for your wonderful comments and supportive messages, what I've written thus far will stay online for you to enjoy and for me to never look back at,

See you in the future,
