So the year indeed is ending. After a bag of mostly unpleasant surprises I am glad this leap year is ending tomorrow. If you have been in touch with me you know I had a rough start to the year and it got rougher until I made drastic changes. However as it ends, today as I stepped out into the -4 degree Amsterdam morning, I caught a moment with these frost coated leaves. And reignited inside a small hope to make the next year better and happier. Happy new year 2017!
