April has been such a great month. It started off with Easter and not long after preparations were made for blogweek. It was my first time joining blogweek and I enjoyed every minute of it, even though I didn't participate in the last two topics. I just didn't have any interesting things to share anymore and one shouldn't blog with an empty mind.
I got so many wonderful compliments about my yarny hair day picture and I discovered that it has been nominated and you can now vote for it if you want that picture to win! I feel so honored and I want to thank you all for nominating me. You can vote on the pictures that are nominated here.
Last Monday I got these gorgeous flowers:
Last Monday was a national holiday here in Holland, Koninginnedag (= Queensday). We celebrate the queen's birthday with lots of activities, music and everybody dresses in orange.
A tradition in the village were I grew up is the 'ronde van Katwijk' (= the lap of Katwijk), which means running 6 kilometers as quick as you can.
This picture was taken just after the finish, boy I was tired. I trained for the event and for the first time in my life I took part in the event. It was amazing! I never really cared for sports or for events like this, but I will definitely participate again next year. The feeling you get once you cross the finish line is indescribable. Want to see me run?
I know, I know, it isn't top speed haha. But it was a personal achievement.
Do you sport once in a while?
PS: I'll update you all soon on more crafty matters ;-)
