Hi, I am Eve.

Mother, wife, blogger, and photographer. My husband is my most loyal friend, also my biggest supporter. Together we have a beautiful active boy. Our pets are two antique doggies plus one adopted cat. Well, I found Kortjas on a dirt road when she was about six weeks old. We did not know she was female then, so she is stuck with the name ;-) For our girl doggie in heaven, rest in peace MeiMei.

I started this blog "Toffee apples for Eve" during South Africa's lockdown period of 21 days in March 2020. It was mainly out of boredom and because I thought it was time to do something about a book. A book I have written with no end yet. Seven years have been just too long. At this stage in my life, I am fulfilled and not ashamed anymore. People's opinions and thoughts have weighed me down too many times.

Although my main focus is my photography, writing is a big part of my life. Turning 40 maybe just sparked the fact that I still want to write or blog. My first language is Afrikaans, so is the book. I decided to do my book in Afrikaans and add a bit of content in English. Therefore we will have stories in both languages.

In this blog, I will share my whole life with every reader. It is terrifying but necessary. This story does not have an ending, and maybe it will never end. Who knows? But I can promise you that every reader will take a little piece of this blog with them. Some will find comfort, and some will find peace. Some will have to confront their biggest fears.

So sit back, and enjoy the journey of Eve. We all are Eve's anyway.

We all are Eve’s anyway.
