for jonas

"Do not ask your children

to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself."

(William Martin)

You didn't hear from me for a long time. That has everything to do 
with the fact that I'm a mum since Saterday night. After nine months 
in my belly, there he finally is: Jonas! 
To me, every little thing he does is magic. I can't stop watching 
him and my heart is full of love.

for anne

A golden present, for a golden lady. My aunt Anne... who is always 
there when I need her, who is like a second mum for me, with who 
I share beautiful travel memories, who's the most hospitable
person I know,... 
Happy birthday and thanks for everything!!!

Pictures from this morning, made on a walk with my parents and Flynn.

for flynn

For Flynn, Flynnie Minnie (Mouse), Little Princess, (klein) Patat(je), 
Black Beauty, Pop(je), or -if she's been bad- Black Monster, 
Kleinen Duvel.
It's been a year since we drove to Flynn's former family to pick her up 
and make her a member of our family.
I haven't had any regrets, not even for one moment... 
Not after she destroyed my "present from Berlin pantoffels"
(sorry Katy), not after the numerous times she rolled herself in a "fresh" 
cow turd, not after she threw up on our white carpet or (this is the worst) 
not even after she killed one of our neighbors chickens...
Although I was very, very angry after these events, she's so sweet and 
adorable that I just have to forgive and love her anyway!

from today

Since a few day's, it has been cold and misty on my morning walks 
with Flynn.
I feel autumn is coming our way. Although I love that season,
I don't feel ready for it yet...

evening light

A beautiful blanket I got from my mum for the baby cot. 

From time to time, when I see myself on unexpected moments 
(like in a window shop or a shadow), I'm surprised how big 
my belly is.
Two more weeks to go...
