afternoon sunlight

We went on a short afternoon walk in the sunset. I haven’t explored that much around my house since I moved here in September, but I do know that behind the houses that are in front of me, there is a big lake, so thats where we went. Life seems so much brighter and nicer when the sun is out and it’s warm, doesn’t it?

Cologne

Sam was in Cologne, Germany, for a boxing tournament and after he won his match on Wednesday I decided to drive there the next day to see his match against Cuba. It was a 3 hr drive so wasn’t too bad and I booked a simple hotel as soon as I decided to go. I dropped my car at the hotel and took and uber to the venue where the tournament was taking place. Unfortunately after a very nervewrecking match in which Sam really showed good work, he lost on points against the 34 y/o Cuban. I’m so proud of him! We got to go on a nice dinner together afterwards and the next day we had some time to explore the city and have some more food. It was very cold tho so didn’t enjoy it very much haha. Here we were at the Kölner Dom, an amazing big church in the center of the city. It’s truly amazing and só big!

Sammy.. My god this guy is so romantic, what did I do to deserve him? Like honestly.. He arranged the Champagne Experience in the London Eye for us and when we were pretty much at the top he took me aside, said a few sweet words to me, reached down to his backpocket and took out a little velvet thingie. Gave it to me and told me to open it and take out what’s inside. For a second I thought it was a ring haha, but it was a necklace with a picture on it and on the other side it said ‘Would you be my girl forever?’ UUUUUUHMMM YES!!! I had tingles all over my body and couldn’t stop smiling. He makes me so happy it’s ridicilous. They say you’ll find love when you least expect it. Well, we did. I love you moppie, I feel so so blessed to have you in my life.

My champ

Last weekend it was boxing time! The Dutch Nationals were held at the Worldhotel Wings at Rotterdam/The Hague airport. Sammy had to fight his semi final on saturday. This was my first time seeing him box live and I was so nervous. I think I was even more nervous than for my own shows. I was feeling sooo proud when he walked down those stairs and everyone was cheering and clapping for him! That’s my man! He started off so well, the first round was definately for him. And then the second round.. At around half of the round HE KNOCKED HIM OUT! Finals the next day! Unfortunately Sam had to take a drug test which he had to drink a lot for. At the same time he had to be under 69kg the next day for his fight. He had a really hard time but managed to come back to under 69kg the next day. Uff that was a tense moment to be honest!

The next day it was finals day. I was even more nervous than the day before; I barely slept and my stomach was feeling like it was beeing squeezed all the time. He fought like a beast, so did his opponent. In the end it was a very close call and Sam won the silver medal. Despite the result which was a disappointment for him, I am so freaking proud of him! He has nothing to be ashamed off. You know; you learn when you loose, you don’t learn when you win..

Next up for him is a tournament in Hungary. I really wanted to come with him because I have friends living in Budapest, but the tournament is a 3 hour drive away so that’s not really gonna work unfortunately. I know you’re gonna rock it baby! I’ll be there for you, as always.
