Today is Maan’s birthday, she turned three! She was ill with the chicken pox all week so we weren’t sure whether she would be up to a party, but she enjoyed it very much. We invited our close family to our new home and it turned out to be the perfect party location.

I have a three year old kid now, I can hardly imagine. She is brave, tough, funny and curious. And on top of that, she is such a kind soul. We feel so blessed.

Vandaag is Maan jarig, ze is drie! Ze heeft de hele week al last van de waterpokken dus we waren bang dat haar feestje in het water zou vallen (pun intended) maar ze was net op tijd wat opgeknapt en heeft enorm genoten. We nodigden de familie uit in ons nieuwe huis en hoewel het nog niet bewoonbaar is, bleek het de perfecte feestlocatie.

Ik heb ineens een driejarig kind zeg, ongelooflijk. Ze is dapper, sterk, vasthoudend, grappig en nieuwsgierig. En daar bovenop is ze ook nog eens ontzettend lief. Wat een geluk.

Rebuilding

Rebuilding starts with demolition! Our home in the woods went from retro heaven to sand box fun | Enigheid

The past months were pretty hectic, with hardly any time to do basic things, let alone blogging or instagramming. Here you see why. We planned to start with some essential things, but ended up with total demolition. And so our home in the woods went from retro heaven to the biggest sand box Maan had ever seen.

This renovation is quite the project, yet again. And since we already sold our former home on the 1st of October, we have been staying with our parents since. T. and I live separate, Maan alternating from one place to another. It is a serious luxury that we have a place to stay during the first part of our renovation, but living apart is pretty hard too. But we keep our eyes on the prize!

De afgelopen maanden waren nogal hectisch, met amper tijd voor de gewone dingen, laat staan voor bloggen of instagrammen. Hier zie je waarom. We waren van plan om te beginnen met het hoogstnodige, maar het eindigde in overal zand, stof en puin. Zo ging ons mooie huis in het bos van retro paleis naar de grootste zandbak die Maan ooit had gezien. 

Deze verbouwing is (weer) een enorm project. En omdat ons oude huis verkocht is sinds 1 oktober, logeren we bij onze ouders. T. en ik leven tijdelijk gescheiden en Maan hopt van de ene opa en oma naar de andere. Het is luxe dat dit kan tijdens het eerste deel van onze verbouwing, maar apart van elkaar leven is ook enorm pittig. Het vooruitzicht is echter zo goed, dat het vol te houden is.
