Welcome to Simple Colorful and my blog. A blog about enjoying the things that surround me and how it colour my life in the most simple way’s.
My name is Marianne and I was born in 1972 in Denmark, but in 1995 I met a great Dutch guy in the south of France. 3 month later I moved to Amsterdam to live with him and have never left the country since (except for holiday’s).
Today, 24 years later, we are still happily together and live 40 minutes north of Amsterdam with our two daughters Alieke and Emmelie. We live very close to the forest and the beach and I simply love the area and my home here.
My blog will be about a lot of different things that inspire me. At the moment I feel like I am coming into a new phase of my life with a lot of new things I want to do and explore. Cooking is now one of my big hobbies and I love to try new things and experiment with different ingredient.
I also love to sew and design things. I am always up for a new challenge making something for here at home or clothes for my girls.
Further, I love to recycle things and use natural ingredients (Love organic food, but I am not that kind of person hoe only buy organic. It depends on the products and sometimes the prices as well)
I am never afraid of trying something new and my motto (very popular at the moment) is ” I have never tried it before, but I think I should definitely be able to do it” – Pippi Longstocking. I just love that quote and want to live by that as much as possible.
With that said I hope that you will enjoy my blog and take the time to explore it to see what I love to doe and what I like.
If you have any questions you are welcome send me a message or, I will be happy to answer them through my contact form. You can find it in the upper menu, but I would also love some comments after a post.
