Love your nappies

Love your nappies

Or: our journey to NOT potty training You would have thought that having a 2.5 years old toddler at home, you‘re „out of the worst“ (as we say in German). E can walk (in fact, she’s pretty much running everywhere, all the time), talk full sentences, work her charm when she wants something, eats like...

Life, currently

Life, currently

Oh deer, we’re already looking back on so many things this summer… four weeks spent in Provence. And it has been one crazy month. I’ll try and make a blog ready about it asap, promised. But first, I need to get you back on track on all the things happening in our lives, currently. The...

Pregnancy 2.0

Pregnancy 2.0

Being pregnant the second time around – I am currently in week 30, eep! How time flies… – I’m yet again humbled. Humbled by this miracle and incredible honor that is creating and carrying a new life. Amazed by the changes my body is going through. Pregnancy truly is a blessing and, also the second...

Kids’ Easter Basket

Kids’ Easter Basket

Planning, creating and curating gifts is basically my biggest hobbie. Building an Easter Basket for E is top priority on my agenda right once Christmas and NYE are around the bend… Surprising a toddler is so easy. It literally takes nothing but a bit of imagination, creativity, small toys and shiny things and the eyes...

Home of the Easter Bunny

Home of the Easter Bunny

When I was a child, my mom used to love creating magic for us. Not a single childhood myth she didn’t cover with a perfectly curated web of “lies” (technically, but I stick to the euphemism “stories). She’d pull all the stops for ocasions like a lost tooth (she was an excellent tooth fairy) and...

Essentials On The Go

Essentials On The Go

When you’re often on the go with a sweet cheeky little toddler, you learn your lessons, real fast. And definitely one of the first lessons I learned in this gig called mama life: always be prepared for everything. From blown up diapers to sickness in the car or bunny bites at the petting zoo –...

Managing Memories

Managing Memories

As a mama, you are suddenly thrown into the beauty of mundane, everyday moments – that mean the world to you. Every single thing you experience together with your baby – and later toddler and kid – is turning into this memorable incident that you never want to forget. You’re making mental notes, hourly, about...

Spring List

Spring List

Now that we finally have sunshine, it feels like spring is just around the corner. And while I haven’t missed anything during the colder season, the first warming rays of sunshine have been like a promise. And like every year, suddenly I’m in the mood for spring. It is so nice how a bit of...

Visiting our Furry Friends

Visiting our Furry Friends

With a toddler, you are always on the run, busy planning new activities, visiting the latest childfriendly sights and doing stuff you haven’t done yourself in decades. One of the biggest pleasures for us as a family is visiting animals. Be it the local petting zoo in our closeby community garden, GZ Bachwiesen, where we...

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Throwing parties is one of my greatest pleasures in life. One of my only mottos I consistently stick to is: celebrate everything! Firm believer that every day should be a little party. As bigger bashes go, alas, I have to say that hubbie and I are not too fond of celebrating our own birthdays. I...
