Week 3 of the holiday has started and we celebrate this with the new Bobo Collection. The theme of their collection is DEAR WORLD, they try to make us aware about the pollution of the sea. Have you seen the water of the seas? Full of rubbish and oil and plastic (cfr Bobo Choses campaign […]Read more "dear world"
After the last and busiest week of the (school)year we needed some down time. The main mister of the house had to work so I took the kids to see my parents at the seaside for a few days. We really needed some peace and quiet and just do nothing much except for hanging on […]Read more "bon voyage"
I always pictured myself with 3 boys. Well, that ain’t going to happen anymore, ha! When we found out our firstborn was going to be a boy, I was beyond excited. I grew up living next door to my 3 cousins so I already knew a bit about boys stuff and I love that there […]Read more "raising a boy"
Me-time. I don’t like those two words. Of course, we need time for ourselves now and then, but I find the words ‘ME TIME’ a bit overrated. I prefer to call it: spending time on my own. I cherish those moments as they don’t come by that often, but when I have a few hours […]Read more "me-time rant"
Every Wednesday afternoon while Jules has tennis practice, Jeanne and I try to do something fun together. We take a walk, shop a bit, talk, go watch a movie. She also loves to go to ‘the little bridge’ as she calls it. Of course, not every Wednesday is all fun and play, unfortunately there are […]Read more "birds and housewives"
Our happy place is anywhere near the water, whether it is the beach or a lake or a river… Both kids love to swim and even when it is too cold for that, the effect of a day spend near the water is so so good. My parents live at the seaside so whenever the […]Read more "beach more, worry less"
As much as I love the city, the country side started to grow on me as well. My husbands family has a little cabin in the woods and we love to go there. This time we invited our friends and their kids as well. All the littles love it there and seeing them run wild […]Read more "a weekend at the cabin"
Roze, poederroze,, oudroze, … Toen ik zwanger was van Jeanne, wist ik ergens dat het een meisje moest zijn. Ik had plots een hele grote fascinatie met alles wat roze was. Jeanne hield op de eerste echo’s steeds mooi haar beentjes toe, dus het duurde best wel lang voor we het zeker wisten dat Jeanne […]Read more "la vie en rose"
Last week London was under attack again. Another act of terrorism. When the first attacks happened it was like the world stood still. It was all over the news, on the radio, on the streets.. And with every new attack it seems like we get over it faster, because that’s how life works… I can not […]Read more "flowers for the people"
Spending time as a family is one of the most important things. Of course we have our daily moments at the dining table, but dinner time mostly consists of encouraging the kids to eat their veggies. Once the littles get older those moments will be less stressful, I hope. I remember those evenings with my […]Read more "a day at the lake"
