We are known to be pretty good bandwagon jumpers. Turns out we are pretty amazing at jumping off as well. We loved the 52 photos on the wall project with a passion, but after two years the fire turned into a little flame. So time to find a new fire.
We tried to think of something new, something original and unique. But honestly, when a good thing is already invented… We are big admirers of Ashley aka @thestorkandthebeanstalk. She’s not only an amazing photographer, but also an amazing mother. And last but not less important: funny too.
She started a monthly family portret serie a while back. And we decided to steal, ehhh be very inspired by her and start one of our own.
J: got her first birthday invitation from a classmate and her first hair pulling incident from another classmate. School is cool and exhausting.
F: standing anywhere, pointing to anything, eating everything (but spinach), waving to anyone, saying mama to anyone. Let’s say growing like a maniac.
B: agreed on this ’12 photos on the bed project’ after weeks of thinking it over. I finally won him over with the books I made from our 52 photos on the wall. But he asks for something in return.
V: not the return kind of person. But happy I won him over. Also a little big bit sleep deprivated but I refuse to go to bed early because it violates my alone time on the couch with my phone, Netflix, camera or even a book. B hates me for it and tells me every night. I’m stubborn and regretting it every morning.
Last year I wished everything would stay the same for you because it was that good. But it didn’t. It got bat shit better. Baby O entered your LA life and right after that you moved back home. Only a train ride apart from me (insert mad eyes)
Halleluja! It’s a wrap! Number 52 of our photos is up on the wall. And even though it was hard to keep up sometimes, it’s damn cool to look back and see how our kids grew in front of our cameras. It’s also damn cool to see how some of our followers and some of their followers play along and create their own memories. Thank you for that.
We’ve done this 52 thing for 2 years now. And talking about it the last couple of weeks made us decide to stop here, before we get bored too much and fuck up the magic. But we still love our cameras, our kids, our blog and this concept. So we stole another cool idea. More about that in January…
Like last year, we decided to look back on the past year for each other. Because we love to scroll through posts (a couple) and photos (a lot). So here we go…
2016 was a quiet year. Blog wise. Adventurous life wise. Not much happened but also everything happened. You moved houses (again), You added a little human to your life. Of course we still talked about our blog, loved it, had many new (hilarious) ideas, but often life got in the way. And that’s okay, because that’s what it’s all about, blog wise.
