With things happening for me comes new choices for J. For seven months it was me and her, with two, soon one and then no daycare. Now I’ll be back on track for three days. That means three days without her. Saying that out loud breaks my heart. But I’m not going to sit here en write about the tears that are ruining my keyboard and my crazy cool image right now. I wanted to talk about daycare.

The art of VSCO


Up until two year ago I looked at photos around the internet and always wondered how people make such beautiful bright captures from anything. Nature, still life, architecture, people or just ordinary daily life. It obsessed me, because my own (iphone) photos always looked dark and yellow.

Our new home is bigger than what we have now, has two storeys and a small garden. All I ever wished for. What I didn’t realize is that even though our Amsterdam apartment is small, we use all of the space in a very active way because it’s on the same level.

Maybe for the better, because maaaaaaaan we (I) own a lot of stuff covered in dust. And I never missed any of it. It makes me a little sick to see this material overkill. Even sicker thinking of me buying all of it in the past, thinking I really need it and quite happy with myself knowing I can buy everything I want.
