Mijn Zoete Leven!

I, well, actually we, have been quite busy these last few days! My very talented husband, Hans, has helped me create a lovely website (in Dutch and English), Mijn Zoete Leven, or 'My Sweet Life', to kick off my new food business! The funny thing is that shortly before this leap, I was busy working on expositions and art historical research, convinced that this would become my career! Now don't get me wrong- I still get goosebumps when I see a Rembrandt and I am still fanatical about Vondel, but for the moment life has lead me here and I am extremeley happy about that. I hope you have a look, and do let me know what you think!

Because of the hectic schedule, I haven't had a chance to really plan meals, which means that we've been living on simple food for the past week- lots of bread meals (great organic sourdough bread, may I add), soups and salads. Therefore, no news on the cooking front. It's weekend though, so stay tuned!

Paola, welcome back, I missed you! CONGRATULATIONS on your new website, it is appealing, clear, and very beautiful. You are going to have great success with it! I am sure of it. I am telling you, if we were closer I would sign up for classes! I am sure I will take at least one when we visit Holland!!! We can talk about art while cooking, cierto?

Paola said...

Thanks Lisa and Beatriz!

Beatriz, that would be fabulous! How I would love to welcome you here!

Muchisimos saludos,

Hi Paola,
well done, I wish you lots of luck.
Just one practical problem: I can't open your site correctly in Internet Explorer (there is a big white square) but it's fine in Mozilla Firefox. We are busy ourselves with a website and its annoying that it works in one and not in another! Interesting enough most of our visitors so far use Firefox! That was a surprise.

I love the look of your website, it's so professional but friendly and fun too.

Thanks everyone! This is all lovely to hear!

Vanessa, we've checked on Internet Explorer (computer upstairs and it seems to work fine). Is your version an older one perhaps?

Wonder if anyone else has this problem?

Take care,
