London was a crazy few days but I enjoyed myself to the fullest. It was only a few short days but it was a new adventure all on its own. Now I’ve been to London before, but this would be my first time going there by myself to meet up with my friends.
I left on Monday morning, went to the airport and took an early flight to London. I was a little nervous but I love that airport feeling. Usually I make really long flights so this flight was a piece of cake. I had a little nap and woke up refreshed when we landed. I then took the train to the center of London and waited for my friends while I wandered around the station, had a latte and bought some magazines.
My friends picked me up at the train station later and took me into town. We did some shopping, had some good food and laughs. London was amazing and I really want to go back sometime. The last day was mostly relaxing and a bit of shopping. For my travel outfit I pretty much go for comfy, so I always pair up with a fluffy big scarf. This time wearing my Adidas x Rita Ora hoodie, a pair of shorts, tights and a pair of comfy free runs. I can’t wait to pack my bags and go traveling again.
My last few weeks have been total chaos, work on and off and preparing for the boyfriend’s visit. As most of you know I’m in a long distance relationship and I usually travel to the States to see my boyfriend, this time it was going to be a little different. Five years ago I met him for the very first time IRL when he visited me and after all this time he was going to come over again for a short visit in the Netherlands. We had a few things planned including Dutch Comic Con the first weekend and a few city trips the next week. DCC was definitely a fun convention, and it ended in a very special way.
If the picture and the intro of this post didn’t give it away yet. We got engaged ♡ It was a very special moment that I’m glad I got to share with a few of my close friends. We’ve talked about our future in the past, discussed marriage and all of that, and even though I knew this was going to happen sometime in the near future I hadn’t expected him to ask me so early during his visit here. I was surprised, of course super happy but also very grateful he took into consideration to ask me with a few of my close friends present. Obviously I cried a lot of happy tears and received lots of love from everyone who congratulated us. Without any fancy words, I just feel so, so, blessed.
Now comes planning the wedding and all the other fun stuff, I’m really excited and definitely looking forward to our new adventure.
Unfortunately I have been back in the Netherlands for the last few weeks. Back to work and back to wearing scarfs, gloves and an extra pair of leggings. My USA trip was amazing, I loved spending time with my potato baby as well as with friends and family. This time was the first time during the holiday season and experiencing Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed our time together, and just like always it’s really special to me.
I don’t know when I’ll be going back to see him again and hopefully he’ll be able to come visit too next year. For now it’s back to work, saving some money, working on one last cosplay for now, maybe even picking up a new sport and doing some socializing with my friends. I’m so excited!
Christmas comes early for me, normally we don’t put up too many things around Christmas at home. Just because it takes a lot of effort and afterwards it’s just a huge mess. This being the first time in the States around this time of the year it’s really amazing to see how much Christmas stuff is in stores right after Halloween.
Together with the boyfriend we got our, very own, first Christmas tree. We got a tiny white tree, decorated with white and silver ornaments. I love the snowy feel our tree gives, it’s perfect for winter.
