Anything, Everything and Nothing

Anne – Always Anne

It is this Beautiful Woman’s birthday today (19 June 2017)…


Laughing like crazy, while I was in pain and she was full of giggles.


Anne and I met when we were in our first year at university. I immediately thought: “this girl is super cool and I have to be friends with her”, in more adult terms today, it will sound like:

  • “She is marvelous, I shall befriend her” – Ok, that is a bit Shakespearean
  • “She is goals, she will become fam” – That is a bit ghetto

Uhm, last try:

  • “What an inspiration, she is beautiful, funny, crazy and ambitious, I really want to be her friend” – Jip, I think that is the one.


With the beautiful Crisna and Hanli, we did a photo shoot in Cape Town.


Anne is exactly what you see, and not what you see at all.

  • She is beauty and the brains.
  • She has such a big heart, but do not mess with her.
  • She is my absolute best friend, my person, we are shenanigans and well mannered frivolity.


Most Fun Ballet Recital ever!!!

We don’t do birthdays, but she is awesome, and I want to celebrate her life: SO sorry Anne, but here is a blog post about you! 😀

You are so special, I hold you dear and cannot imagine my life without you.

Love, Lien
