Happy birthday Pippa!

Today my little girl turns 18! (...how did that happen?)

It's wonderful to see how my dear little daughter changed into a beautiful young woman...

I have to admit, I miss the little Pippa now and than.
It's very special to share all the tiny daily things in life and taking care of everything seems so obvious.

This morning I was browsing through our holiday pictures of 2009, when we went on a roadtrip with an old campervan and I remember every single moment.

The first 'selfie' we made at the Notre Dame in Paris, walking in the rain in Paris, running down the Dune de Pyla, shopping in Lisbon.

I cherish all the beautiful memories with our children! It was a great pleasure to show them places around the world. It's priceless!

My beloved Pip, you're a young woman now. I love you and wish you a very happy birthday and a bright future ahead!

The old grey sorting cupboard on my desk is currently filled with black and white yarn for an 'unusual' b & w project.

I'm working on a black & white version of my well known colorful baby blanket (design anno 2010).

zeeland beachfinds

Sunday beachfinds.
Today we returned to Zeeland, very early in the morning.

We enjoyed our beachday last Wednesday so much and it felt like a one day vacation, so we decided to go back to the wide beaches of Zeeland.

A good day it was.

Beachday in Zeeland. Last Wednesday we had a great time on the beach.
It was a warm and sunny August day and we stayed on the beach for hours.
