This month I’ve been feeling really motivated and creative and I’ve been getting back into enjoying all different kinds of goodness in my life, like making music, exercising and spending time with good friends.

My dudes, as usual, Free Press Summerfest is right around the corner and I have no idea what I’ll be wearing!

My last day in Amsterdam was Easter Sunday, and while I wasn’t planning to hunt for eggs or attend mass, I still hoped to celebrate the holiday with a little bit of arts and culture.
