Arnhem feels like home now

It is more than 9 months ago since S. and I moved from Nijmegen to Arnhem. The two cities lie less than 20 km from each other but are completely different. Nijmegen is an university town, with lots of students and bars. Arnhem has an art school, which gives the streetscape a different look and feel. And even though I would consider myself more an art type then an university girl, it took me some time to sattle down here.  But I think it has happened now :) The other day I was wandering through the streets (bumped into a great sewing supplie store) and I found these images. And you what they say: home is where the heart is.

I (heart) Instagram

Not long ago I (finally) got myself an iPhone. And I very much fell in love with the Instagram-app. I don't have so much inspiration to write right now (even though I had a great May-break). I think I'll let the images do the talking :) 
Former almshouse in Groningen. I visited this town with my mother during the May-break. I also lived for 2,5 years in this great city in the north of the Netherlands

Love is on the street in Groningen
