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...

Interview on Sweet Home

Interview on Sweet Home

A couple of years ago at the same time of the year, the dear Marianne Kohler of Sweet Home Blog paid me a visit in my overly christmassy home (I was still living alone by the time ahaha). You can find the home heportage about it here. This year, we finally reunited – but with...

E’s Tree

E’s Tree

Christmas is a good occasion to go overboard with kitsch… Nothing better to get me into this “grownup” sensation of Christmas than some twinkling lights, glitter, candles, santas, lovely smells and quirky ornaments. I have been collecting vintage ornaments forever (as evidenced here several times, year after year) and have dreamed of creating a tree...

Advent, Advent…

Advent, Advent…

I remember vividly, how much effort my mama used to put into curating a beautiful advent calendar for me, every Christmas, for almost 20 years. Every year was a different set-up. Once there was a white painted tree (a proper tree, sans leaves) hanging atop my bed, strewn with twinkling lights and 24 little boxes...
