Freshly Shaven Llamas And A Wedding 

Wednesday 25th-

The internet went kaput Tuesday afternoon and stayed off, so that’s why I haven’t been posting anything.

Morning came with coffee, reading and drawing. 

The house then got some major cleaning and that took up a fair chunk of my day.

When cleaning out the bathroom I found Mike had taken it upon himself to empty his bin of all the small hotel shampoos/soaps etc. that I brought back from all the places we’ve stayed.Does anyone else hoard these ?? 😂

I always think they will come in handy and be useful but they just pile up and get forgotten😜

Burger was fried up and all the toppings for tacos prepared.

Mike got back from his work day in Amsterdam and brought me some macaroons 😊💕

 It’s sad to say but since the Internet was out, we were really bored 😁

Mike decided we should go for a drive to pass some time, so out we went.
It was actually pretty entertaining 😋

We spotted baby miniature ponies, baby horses, some kind of small kangaroo in shades of brown and white (rather creepy looking in white) and they had baby’s too.

Obviously, it is spring.

Last but not least, we seen llamas.
Freshly shaven llamas 😂
They looked so hilarious, their gangly body and long necks swaying hilariously when they ran.

 Perhaps I’m to easily entertained but hey 😏

Once we were back at the cottage, outfits had to be chosen for the next day since Mikes cousin was getting married 😋

We watched a movie in bed and that was that.


Thursday 26th –



I couldn’t sleep so I was awake by 6 am. 🙄
I had nothing better to do, so I got my hair done and got ready for the day ahead.

Mike finally got up and at er and we headed out the door to go to the wedding.

BUT… I heard what I thought to be a small meow as I walked to the car?
So I alerted Mike and we held a quick kitten search in the garden sheds around the cottage… and poof!
Kittens were found 😄
But they were very new and not meowing yet so it was pure chance we actually looked for and found them 😋
I gave the mom some meat and then we had to leave.

If anyone could have seen us, it probably would have looked slightly humorous.
Mike in a white dress shirt and leather shoes, me in my dressy outfit and heels, tromping around in the bush and spiderwebs and dust filled sheds to look for kittens… But kittens are always worth it 😉

Wedding ceremonies feel a lot longer here, it could partially be because I don’t understand anything being said, but it really is a fact.                                                                                                                             No matter what language I would hear it in 😉

The day was warm and perfect for a wedding, it was so enjoyed seeing the sun again! ☀️🔔💕

One plus about weddings here is that there is no lack of awesome vehicles available for the bride and groom to get around in for the day 😏👌🏻

Once our roles in the family pictures were finished we drove over to a snack bar to make sure we survived until supper time 😎

The wedding venue was impressive, a mixture of modern and rustic decor.

 Waiters were serving drinks and snacks throughout the whole night, keeping everyone very hydrated and helping to fend off their hunger until supper.
Delicious cookies were available whenever the mood struck.  

                                                                                        Eventually a tasty buffet supper was served 😊 

Skits, slide shows and speeches took up most of the evening before everyone lit a pathway with sparklers for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
