Happy Holidays!

YO DORKS! I've been away from the computer the past few days because, you know, CHRISTMAS and I've spent all of my time preparing and enjoying. No time for blogging, sorry! But you probably have better stuff to do than reading online anyway, like stuffing your faces and opening presents. 

To tell you the truth, this year is probably the first time in my entire life that I've celebrated Christmas the "proper" way: Christmas shopping for my loved ones, wrapping up gifts and hosting a dinner + Christmas movie celebration. My parents were never into the holiday and we just gave gifts around Sinterklaas so Christmas sort of fell through, and then my entire home situation sort of exploded with everyone leaving and moving abroad and separating and, uhm, dying, so, yeah. This Christmas was special in a very bittersweet way, but mostly sweet. 

I will do a post about my evening with lots of pictures soon, but since I'm almost off to the cinema to go see Wreck-it-Ralph, I've got to hurry up and get ready! I didn't want to leave you without an update for so long, so here I am, with a gorgeous picture my sister snapped on Christmas eve, and my very best wishes for all of you. I hope everyone had a very merry little Christmas, and if not: there's always next year :)

Since this is my very favorite Christmas song (and because the lyrics are very appropriate, describing my own feelings perfectly), I'll leave you with Judy Garland's version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Her version is the absolute best.

PS: my tiny Christmas gift to you: a new lay out! Let me know what you think! I wanted something simple and elegant for now. 

PPS: I got a smartphone and I'm on instagram now so keep up with all of my antics and follow me, I'm @stylingdutchman!
