Jack and Lily Shoes giveaway

I went to Sandy's blog to enter an awesome giveaway!! Jack and Lily's shoes are up for grabs and I hope I win. They would look awesome on Matilda. :)

Bye Bye First Nap

It looks like the first nap is leaving us. For months, I have enjoyed the morning break and did some housework or serious work or focussed on my Etsy shops. 10 am til 11 am was an hour of the day when the minutes slowed down a little bit. Not anymore. Since few days, Matilda is not falling asleep even though she is in her crib for a long time. She plays, she talks, doesn't cry, but she doesn't sleep. So ade first nap! We will never see you again.

I guess bad news is sometimes good news. Now the afternoon nap is prolonged to over 2 hours. Yay!! :)

Roundest eyes. Roundest face. Pure cuteness.

Art in the kitchen

My kitchen is my art studio. My most precious photos end up on the wall for few months so that we can all enjoy them. The tulips from two weeks ago are now printed in 11x14 and framed.

Lukas' drawings

Lukas drawing skills are getting better and better. Check out our family pictures. What an improvement in skills and imagination. :)

Every now and then, Lukas performs yoga after dinner. Here is his attempt to do the Urkasana pose. He is pretty good, I think.


Yesterday, finally, Matilda had her very first and her very own popsickle after dinner! She has watched Lukas for months already when he was enjoying his treat and yesterday, she got lucky. Daddy couldn't say No.

She enjoyed every drip of it.

Few days ago, I received my special order of thank you cards that I was looking at for a long time on Etsy. Takenote has simple but beautiful and stylish note cards that I had to have. I ordered few gift sets as well and now I am set for the birthday season. Or just-because season.

Mother's Day

We had a great day yesterday! I woke up and got lots of kisses from Lukas and Matilda. Already on Thursday I have received two cards that Lukas prepared in school. But the one below is my favorite. He wrote and draw it himself.

Lukas loves Mom.

Yesterday, to celebrate May 5th for a special reason, I bought myself tulips. Orange tulips.

I love tulips because they are plain, fragile, and beautiful to look at.

Of course, I couldn't resist to take some pictures. I didn't take 2 or 3, no. I ended up with over 30. But no worries, I will not post all of them.

Here, dear blogger readers, for your viewing pleasure, orange tulips:

Roses in May

I can't believe it's May already! And I can't believe that all my roses are out already! Didn't I just cut them few weeks ago? They are beautiful now and here is a picture from today. It's gloomy and rainy today but the roses look fabulous! Made me smile and that is all what matters.
