Oh wie schön ist Panama

Panama…this had never been a country that I thought I would ever live in. To be honest,  when thinking about Panama the only things which used to come to my mind were the Panama Canal, a German children’s book by the author Janosch called Oh wie schön ist Panama (Oh how beautiful is Panama), well and the…

That Shoot For Two

Just a couple of days before our little Miz arrived I was contacted by photographer Libia Arteaga for a pregnancy shoot. I had already done a photo shoot during my first pregnancy so I had not intended to do one again this time around. I just thought the fact that my baby bump had been captured already once…

Cherry Blossom in Amsterdam

 I love about Amsterdam that I still get to discover new places. For instance, until last week I had ignored the existence of the Japanese garden in the local forest, the Amsterdamse Bos.

Happy 2 !

Last weekend I said goodbye to my baby boy. Sure, this process already started a year go when he turned 1. Back then, he walked…babies do not walk. However, that was nothing compared to now. Now he drives a Bobby car, climbs on the sofa and walks down the stairs without me having a heart attack…

Aha, you know what it is…

The combination of black and yellow always reminded me of wasps. I hate wasps. They are carnivores and love to take a bite of my steak when we’re having a barbecue. I have always been told that “they don’t do anything when you stay calm” but that’s a lie. They are agressive and I have…
