Last week I asked Sophia (friend, photographer, co-founder of Broodnuchter ) to make some photos of me and my belly. Often I think pregnancy photos are corny and a little bit strange. But I love Sophias style so I kwew I would be in great hands. I am really happy with the result. My personal favourites are the first one (because its classic and timeless) and the one with Jack the cat with his eyes closed because it’s a cosy image.
We enjoyed our last christmas breakfast with just the two of us and of course Jack, the cat! Joey made some really nice photos with the new camera. (check out more pics at Cloud Cuckoo) Christmas eve and Christmas day we spend with family and we got really spoilt with nice gifts.
As you can see our home is getting more finished every week now. There are a few things I’ll keep on my to do list when the big belly (38 and a bit weeks now!) is gone and ‘working’ in the house is little bit easier.
At this moment I am getting more excited about the near future with the three of us and leaving ‘our lives as we know it’ behind. I am pretty much ready to be a ‘mom’ and can’t wait to meet her.
Here a sneak peak of some corners in our new place. It has been 2 months since we first got the key, so much work has been done but we will probably need another two months to finish it all. We still often say to eachother what an amazing new appartment we have and how lucky we are!
With the first real days of summer the roofterrace is a real treat but also our backyard, the parc t Kralingse bos, just 100 steps away, is just perfect.

This weekend I am off to the beach! I love this serie of photos called ‘Praia Pequina’ by Christian Chaize. You can just feel a day at the beach. I always love the french fries at the beachrestaurant, the rosy feel after a long day at the beach and ‘beach hair’ (you know what I mean) is always the best!
This is me,…I participated in the ‘Who are you’ project by Le petit bird told me. Showing objects and items that represent you or are part of your daily life. This is the photo I took! Check out more here.
Through a purchase in my online shop I discovered this fabulous blog by Jantine a Dutch interior designer and stylist: April & May. She did this nice kind of project with Le petit bird told me ‘who are you? this is me,..’ The first one is by Le petit bird told me herself the second one is by April & May. So glad to see one of my bracelets in the photo!
