I don`t know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to the first snow this year! It is already happening in other places, but not yet in the Netherlands.
Nine months ago I was complaining about having to endure the longest Winter in (my) history and here I am now anxiously waiting for the first flakes, just like a child anticipating a nice gift from Santa!
Amsterdam becomes absolutely adorable on a white Winter`s day and it is about time to see this again. Especially that this year we also have a proper Christmas market all throughout the Damrak and the lights hanging all over the city look more beautiful than ever before.
I should also mention that, starting now, I will always choose for an alternative Christmas tree, as I consider this environmentally responsible and also a more unique and creative experience. Designing this special tree has been on my mind for weeks now, but I still haven`t figured out what it would look like exactlty.
In the meantime, I keep on looking back to these photographs taken at the beginning of this year, which instantly switch me to Christmas mood!
