geboortekaartjes

2017-02-22_0002.jpg

geboortekaartjes waren bij de geboortes van alledrie onze kinderen een ondergeschoven kindje op onze to do lijst wat ik pas regelde op het laatste moment. dat kwam niet alleen door de drukte van ons leven op dat moment [lees: trouwen, huis kopen, verhuizen], maar ook omdat ik niet goed wist wat ik wilde en waar ik wat leuks kon vinden.

hometour pt. 1

Mamamargaritha

i am writing this blogpost for several reasons. first, i get a lot of questions about my interior. second, i still want to change a lot of things and this is for me a sort of ‘before’ blogpost. third, i want to show it isn’t perfect. after all, i am very very happy with our home. happy how far we have come.

you can read in our story how fast our life went in the past three years. we married, got three children, bought a house and renovated it. well, that consumes looooads of money. it also consumes a lot of time. and it causes a lot of stress ;-). so that are three things why our home is not finished yet and that is also why i am happy with how it is now.

picnic

Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset

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.
