The Netherlands, Fall/Winter 2015

When I was living in Paris, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the Netherlands three times while I was there! 

Not all of the visits were for happy reasons, but ringing in the new year with my family in NL for the first time was amazing. Plus, Dutch food is the absolute best, and it sweetened the deal every time.
