Can't believe that our daughter has graduated and
 is ready for university in a few weeks! 

Guess that we were not the only proud parents yesterday at the prom.
Here are some pics from the evening.

Embrace the moments

What a lovely day we've had today in Luxembourg.

I am very "carpe diem" these days, so when the sun suddenly came and the temp rising, what could be better than a lunch in town with a good friend?
Never been to this restaurant before, neither to I know the name, but I think they serve the best Ceaser I've tasted!!
So enjoy the moments everyone, tomorrow it'll be rain again!

The one and only 40 candle garden party.... this is what the invitation said.
And I think my friend was very lucky on Saturday, the weather was perfect!
And so was the food, music, garden and party!
And the "dutchtub" was a hit, especially among the youngsters!

Lucky us were invited to see the major firework on Friday and to celebrate Luxembourg's national day. Very nice to have friends who lives in a penthouse with a perfect view over the city :-)

Friday, I'm in love.....

I just love Fridays, don't you?
Don't know yet what's happening tonight, but probably go to the concerts and to see the firework (if not to much rain...)
Anyway, wish you all a super duper weekend, 
and enjoy Luxembourg's National Day!

Flowers from the garden lights up our table and smells so good.

..... after an outdoor lunch with daughter and husband, I picked up these two dresses. One bloody expensive the other really cheap, one for me and one for my daughter. We are now ready for her prom next week.
(and if you wonder, the cheap dress is mine)

Finally it seems that our internet has stabilized.
They are digging in the streets and hopefully we will have fiber
 in the near future!

Had quite a nice weekend and on Sunday we went to the Anglican Fair.
Weather was lovely and so was the cremant, but what I am really happy for is my 2 new purses in sugary colours. Perfect to my summer wardrobe. 
Sometimes 2nd hand could be fun!

.... that a forgotten key can lead to a very tasty lunch....

..... and an upgrade of my wardrobe!

Thank you husband for leaving the key to your work at home
 and that you made me drive the "whole" way to deliver it!

Hey hey hey, the weekend can begin!

You loose some, you gain some....

I don't know about you but I am fed up about this weather.
Wouldn't say no to a ticket to Spain.....

Anyway, the other evening the sun decided to say hi for a few seconds so I grabbed my fashion magazine and sat outside for a while.
While admiring the nice photos I started to think about if that dress or bikini could fit me........ no, so I put on my trainers and went for a run!
That doesn't happens to often I'll tell you!
After an exhausted run I felt happy and content, but I suddenly got this craven for something sweet! So I and the children started to make french toast with sugar, cinnamon, strawberries and maple sirup late in the evening!!
The calories weren't away for long, hahaha...... but damn it was good!

♥ sweden

The Sweds arranged their annual tournament in "brännboll" yesterday.
That made me miss Sweden so much that we have now booked tickets to my second home land! Haven't been there for two years so it is about time!
Will not be leaving before mid July, but now I can look 
forward to another journey.
Have I ever told you that I love to travel?

Sooooo good!

If you live in Luxembourg, you must pick up some strawberries from 
the ladies in Steinsel. They are simply the best!
Perfect ending on a perfect weekend!

Colour match

Not often I post things like this, but just felt for it today.
 With the miserable weather we have lately I would like
 some summery colours.
The new nailpolish from Chanel I bought at Paris 8, and when I found this tunika from Esprit I couldn't resist.
So now I am ready for summer, sea and the beach!

Where did the summer go?

Oh my, oh my......
Saturday we had such a wonderful weather so we went to Merch to buy new sunbeds at Leen Bakker (great price!).
Then the Sunday came and so did the fall. Well, indeed it felt like that.
So now I can't wait till next sunny day so I can try them out!
And of all things we have invited to a BBQ tomorrow.
Fingers crossed for some sunny days......

From white to black

This old and rusty table used to be in the dining area in our house in Spain.
I had a different idea for it.
Got my son to spraypaint it in black.
 Now it has a new life at our terrace paired with modern chairs from Ikea.
