I have more than one favourite moment of the day. But when I have to make a choice it’s the evening being at home, spending time with the kids, having time to blog or just do nothing in particular. I would love to have more hours in one day 🙂
As a child what did you want to become ‘when I’m old’? (And did you?)
I wanted to become a stewardess and I almost did after finishing my psychology study and working a few years in a recruitment job. But when I got hired by KLM, I changed plans. With mixed feelings: feeling sorry for having missed all that inspiration while travelling, but also happy for having continued my HR career.
Do you eat Chines food with chopsticks?
We don’t eat Chinese food a lot, but love Italian food!
Tell about a family tradition.
Almost every sunday we have breakfast together called ‘ontbijtje-met-een-eitje’. So nice to start this day-off together after a busy schedule during weekdays.
Do you mind losing a (board) game?
We don’t play games a lot, but I don’t like to lose, unless I play games with my children 🙂
Red or white wine?
Name your favourite city
Amsterdam, because it feels so relaxed to be there. Love shopping in ‘de 9 straatjes’ and to wander around in the Jordaan. But I would love to show Paris to the kids soon, or go to Berlin or New York with my husband. In the mood for much more citytrips in the future!
If you could choose another first name which one would it be?
Evelyn. It’s my second name and I’ve always loved it.
What’s the first blog you read after starting up your computer?
While using the bloglist on my own blog to follow others, it is usually the most recent blogpost posted by any of these great blogs.
Why did you start blogging?
At the time I started my blog I still had my webshop KEET&koter, selling interior and kids accessories. While searching for styling ideas and new products, I just felt the urge to share the pictures that inspired me.

Being born in june I love the summer, enjoying the sun and oh my those long days….
