My little blog is growing up!

Hey there my little pumpkin pies.  Just checking in here quickly to say I haven’t forgotten about this blog but I am, after several failed attempts, moving to push it onwards and upwards.  I am encouraging you all, if there is anyone still following this thing, to stay tuned to jennpeters.com.  A work in progress, and not completely “ready”, I am very excited to get in touch with you all there! Thank you also for your patience while I attempt to navigate the world of a new site platform, google analytics, SEO and a tonne of other things that are above my head! I am in the middle of a copywriting course now and have started to do some paid writing and so I’m excited to see this little page grow and hope to steadily increase my work in the process! Thank you all!

Foggy Photo Walk… #netherlands #photography #travel

Yesterday was such a wonderful day.  It has been cold here, but we spent the whole day walking to one of our favourite areas and taking photos of the surrounds.  The weather was so foggy, it seemed nearly impossible to take a bad photo!

IMG_5699I spent a lot of time yesterday experimenting with various raindrop photos.  I am by no means a photographer, but I am happy with how some of these turned out.

The fog lent a mysterious air to our photos and made everything look dreamy and antiquated.

IMG_5722 IMG_5731 IMG_5758As it got darker, and the temperature fell, the fog intensified.

Before it got dark we got some really great shots, almost in sepia tone with a reddish hue.  My only regret is that my lens is dirty and you can see some definite dirt in some of the shots.  Maybe that just makes the shots look older? Haha.

I really enjoy these long meandering photo walks and it’s so nice to be able to do these walks in the winter.  I hope you enjoyed some of my photos!

Dear carrot cake lovers,

This one’s for you!

For a cake that’s named after a vegetable, carrot cake is usually packed with copious amounts of sugar and oil. These scrumptious bliss balls are not. They’re wholesome, nutritious and naturally free from gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar! Carrots are one of the best vegetable sources of beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A keeps our skin, hair, nails and eyes beautiful by promoting natural cell division, regenerating collagen, regulating oil production, and slowing the natural deterioration of eyesight as we age! So go on, make a batch, it’ll take you less than five minutes and your body will LOVE you for it (so will your tastebuds). Definitely an “I accidently ate the whole thing” dish. But, I don’t carrot all! (See what I did there?).

1 cup grated carrots
1 cup almond meal
6 large medijool dates

Seoul…

I was in Seoul in 2012. Here are some photos! I miss it and I hope to go back again soon! 🙂

Me being stupid-elevator-Seoul

Seoul is great so far.  We are really enjoying it.  We have been walking around everyday pretty much all day and the jet lag has been hard to shake off.  Does that get harder as you get older? I don’t know.  I don’t recall my mother or my in-laws being tired when visiting us in Japan-they were pretty much raring to go.  But last night I slept through the night so I know I’ll feel much better today.

Hello Kitty Cafe!

The weather here has been gorgeous and we’ve been wearing t-shirts and no jackets everyday.  It’s a lot more smoggy than I thought it would be and that took some getting used to but after the first couple of days, I didn’t notice it anymore.  It was hard not to think of Japan, coming here and to draw comparisons even though I really didn’t want to.  That…
