our attic

we renovated our attic last year to make a place to sleep for ourselves, including a bathroom. to see what our attic looked like before these pictures check it out overhereĀ [scroll down]. lucky us emma sent us one of their awesome matrasses. i really looked forward to it because our old one made my back hurt a lot. so i was curious if this one would be better. to be honest, the first two weeks by backache turned into a havier pain, i woke up a several times during the night because of it.  ...

picnic

a couple of months [!] ago i sold the dresser – we never used -, so i had an empty space to fill on the twins room. i was more than happy when this lemodi picnic came in. it is the perfect furniture in their room, they especially love to climb on it at the moment. but when they will grow older it is great to let them play here with their duplo and colors.
