julia-0352sneaky! favorite activities right now – collecting branches, flowers, leaves and anything in between, baking, reading this book, eating these, but if you really want a place in her heart, put some music on, dance and sing – always makes her the happiest (not pictured, ha!)

julia-0152b2 years old this week ♡ and a terrible birthday spent flying and stuck in newark airport due to the storm – luckily she is (almost) always a happy bee and there were lots of giggles playing with the snow. we did have a mini celebration with the family before leaving lisbon and a very warm welcome from dad arriving to new orleans.

happy 2016 from our family to yours

julia nyefarewell 2015, you were good to me, i am so thankful for my health, my family, old and new friends – but mostly for this little girl of mine, who has taught me so much, but above all, to live a happy life, even in the hardest moments.

tonight we’re spending new year’s eve at home with our family, over an amazing meal orchestrated by my mum, raisins for the new year’s countdown and lot’s of bubbly around the fireplace.

wishing you and your loved ones a great start to 2016, filled with love, happiness and always with lot’s of laughter!


ps – happy new year in 2015 and 2014

julia-4652julia at 22 months – as we get closer to her 2nd birthday, i start worrying more and more about two things 1) potty training and 2) getting rid of that pacifier of hers. somehow it seems like the more i try to hide it, the more she wants it… ♡

ps – any amazing tips to ease the pain in getting rid of her pacifier?
