I've been wanting to shout it out for a while, but respectfully tried to curb my enthusiasm. However I think it's fine now to let myself go a bit... I'm becoming an aunt! Those of you who know me or have been following my blog for a while know that I love children and can't wait to have little ones myself. Becoming an aunt first surprised me a little, I always thought I would be the first mum in our family. I have to admit mixed feelings of incredible joy but also a slight sadness and longing washed over me. Joris and I just aren't in the right place yet to start having children and sometimes I'm finding this a little hard to cope with.
But let's not forget about the incredible joy, I love becoming an aunt and I love to be a little part of all the beautiful developments that are happening now. Last week my brother, his wife and I went shopping and when I saw my brother with a glowing face and tiny baby clothes in his hands, I thought it was the most endearing thing I'd seen in a long while. My mixed feelings were instantly replaced by a thankfulness that my brother and his wife get to experience this most wondrous happening and that I may watch my brother transform into a dad.
I made my niece or nephew a little bonnet, when I made it I visualized a little curly blonde girl. I have four brothers, which I love, but it's time for some girl power in the family ;). I used this tutorial. I discovered it was quite easy and made myself a bigger floral hooded version with fleece so I can wear it during the upcoming cold!
Some typical photos of us in our little dollhouse. I'm offering Joris a sweet gesture but of course he's way too busy working (in his comfy home outfit, don't judge ;)). And when he did notice, he couldn't be serious about it now could he? Well he did make me laugh so never mind about the kiss. Our cats don't really mind being held but they don't like it much either, see Moos's ears and how I'm holding his little paw? Well I guess neither of the men in our little dollhouse got kissed, their loss right ;)?
My friend, her daughter and I had a lovely nature walk last week. We were chatting on a bench while suddenly a herd of sheep had surrounded us. They didn't really seem to mind us being there, as long as we were calm, they were too. I love it to feel so in balance with nature, it was a lovely experience with incredibly sweet ladies. Such a blessing...
