Hi, my name is Mirjam and I live in the Netherlands.
I'm married and I have three children ages 2, 5 and 9.
One night, I was sitting behind my computer and found myself on a weblog.
I went from one blog to another and a whole new world opened up for me.
My husband found me crying behind the computer.
"There are a lot of people out there just like me,
who like to create beautiful things," I sobbed.
(I have to say those were rough times, I had just given birth to my third child,
I was breastfeeding, our house was for sale and we were busy decorating our future home,
so that could also explain the tears).
At that time I only used the computer for typing and googling stuff
and the whole hyvves and facebook thing just past me by.
But this made my heartbeat faster, this was something for me!
And though I did not have the time at that moment,
I knew, one day I will have my own blog.
But first I went through a very difficult time.
The constant taking care of others (and not taking care enough of myself) got to me,
and I sort of lost myself and my creativity.
During the closing of this very difficult time in my life (three untreated post partum depressions),
I started photographing and finally started my own blog.
I started becoming myself again and started to notice beautiful things around me again.
This blog remembers me who I am, and is about becoming myself again
and enjoying life again.
I hope that you will take that journey with me.
Enjoy the simple things in life with me.
There's a lot to enjoy!
With love, Mirjam
