About littlebitsofnice

A late bloomer in life, it did take me a while to get to know myself. My likes and dislikes, my guilty pleasures, my opinions, my dress style, my weaknesses and my strengths. And most important of all, I learned to not be ashamed of any of it. I think 2 things were the major cataclysms for all of this.

My father passing away is one of them, a big one. Something like this gives perspective and, as clichΓ© as this may sound, it did make me evaluate my life in a huge way.

The second thing is that I met the love of my life. My now husband came into my life like this amazing ray of sunshine and there has not been a day when my life has not been warmed by him.

This blog started in 2012, year of change for me, with the idea to share all of those moments, big or small, important or insignificant, all of it. All the bits of nice in our lives. They were sometimes be preceded or accompanied with a little bit of moan; life is, as we all know, not perfect. The important thing is to try our best to make it as good as we can.

It then developped and my love for baking started to take over this little space more and more. Now it is mostly about little bits of nice food, cakes, biscuits, pies and everything nice. With little bits of life moments thrown in occassionally.

I hope you enjoy this blog. It is not much, I do not have amazing pictures or mind-blowing concepts. What you will get is a little glimpses of a life and my journey towards making it as good as possible. Mostly through cakes. With lots of love.

  3. Hi Diana – thanks again for stopping by – I am rather excited to see that you may have a connection with Kenya…well, it’s just the one word but it made my heart do a little flip!!

    • I hope I won’t disappoint you by saying that there isn’t a real connection 😦 it simply comes from the trip my husband and I had to Tanzania and we fell in love with the place. I love that word, it’s one of those words that just sounds so friendly!

      • No, not at all – it’s nice to hear how much you loved Tanzania – I always say, there is something about Africa that just gets under your skin and stays there….

      • It’s so true, it really does! I cried so much when we had to leave. I was so emotional about it which is a completely crazy reaction to the end of a holiday. I had never had this kind of reaction to anywhere I’ve been. Before or since!
