Welcome to my blog, welcome at Comfy Cosy, … Living (CCL).  This is where I collect everything that makes me happy, everything that makes my home into the paradise I need to relax, find my focus, meet friends, raise my daughter and to live.  That’s why I create cosiness, that’s why I like it comfortable … that’s why I live!

Last year I started my first blogging experience.  I thought I was quite the expert when it came down to cooking.  And I must admit, it’s true … I am a pretty good kitchen queen … as long as I have recipes and cook books.  When it comes down to being creative, I have learned that there are lots of blogger colleagues who are far more creative then I am.  But I love blogging and meeting new likeminded people among the blogging community.  That’s why I had to rethink my Blogadventure.

From my previous blog “Essenzfertig”, I learned three important facts:

-  I miss reading and writing in english.  Born and raised in Belgium, I was taught that languages are a struggle to learn, but once captured they’re an absolute treasure.  I want to submurge in foreign languages and cultures.  I was raised by anglophile parents.  So from early on in my life, english was my second language.  Ever since I came to Germany, the english language became almost, I’m afraid to say, redundant.  And I miss it!  Not to speak or hear english almost makes me feel homesick.  So the new blog had to be in english!!

-  Although my creativity in the kitchen has room for development, creativity is a sanity saving pilar in my life.  My daytime job (Insurance, believe it or not!) is very strict and compliance driven.  I need to be creative in my spare time, to balance this out.  My daughter, Charlotte, is the best excuse to experiment with knitting needles, a sewing machine and seasonal decorations.  My husband Peter, on the other hand,  is my creativity engine for kitchen and garden.

-  Blogging is not just reading and writing.  I discovered a whole new world: Social Media became more transparent, IT and Webdesign are no longer a foreign language (although I still need to learn much much more) and my private life has a whole new perspective:  I will be learning and developping myself for the rest of my life!

These facts combined lead to my blog:  A home and self made paradise, where we as a family are comfy and cosy.  We are LIVING!
