Our First Blogger Brunch

Yesterday it was finally time for our Expat Blogger Brunch. Honestly, we could not have planned a better day weather wise. In the end, there were 9 of us girls. It was a great brunch, okay maybe the food could have been a bit better, but the conversations and fellowships that developed were right on par with what Lily and I were hoping. Sometimes it is just so great to be surrounded with other people that you can relate to in a city that you love.

After brunch, a smaller group of us went for a walk around the city. The sun was shining, there were dance events and it is the 300th anniversary of the Peach of Utrecht. We wandered around the city in the sunshine. Don't let that coat in the picture up there fool you, it was soon time that I regretted the fact that I had any sleeves on at all. Which for those of you who don't live or visit the Netherlands often, you can't realize how big of a deal this is in the rainy often cold country I call home.

The day ended at least for me, with drinks at the Louis Hartlooper Complex. I had the Maximus Brutus  beer from a local brewery here in Utrecht that I didn't even know existed. Turns out, it is actually right by my house, anyone down for a brewery tour? 

To the ladies who came, thank you so much! You made my Sunday awesome and I hope you also had a great time. For those of you who couldn't make it, Lily and I have already started planning for next month, we will keep you posted with more info when we have it.


Check back in on Friday where I will have my first ever link up and share the blogs of our April attendees. 



It was lots of fun meeting you all! Looking forward to another event :)  It's nice that we are kind of spread among the country, we have excuses to travel around now!

That sounds like it was so much fun! I have to admit, I'm a little sad I'm not an expat right now! lol... Hopefully one day I can join you :)

I like how you misspelled the Peace of Utrecht :P

Yesterday was so much fun and thanks for the tour Kaitlin! Don't think you'll be going on a local brewery tour without me :) xx

Sunday was such a great day!  Thanks again!  I would love to go on a brewery tour, btw.  The beer was awesome.  I'm looking forward to the next meet up.  Cheers!
