Recently Matt and I spent an amazing long weekend in Amsterdam.

Part of it was undoubtedly being on holiday for the first time since Christmas, but I think there was also more to it.

You can’t really beat a weekend of sunshine…

enough museums to fill your culture quota for months… (btw is it wrong that I still really love these boots?)
