one second everyday — october 2015

so, october!

once the boy recovered the use of his legs, we jumped to london for a few days. we hugged our friends and their babies, chased after dogs in the park, ate lots of good food and then, too soon, it was time to come back home and catch up on everything: work, laundry, gardening… speaking of which, we planted an olive tree and some passionfruit and bougainvillea vines — fingers crossed they’ll survive our black thumbs! towards the end of the month, we did our annual trip to bielefeld to catch up with friends and for some postcard-writing time as well. and then, we came back home and hosted our canadian friend lynda, on one of the last legs of her month-long trip around europe.

it was a good, full month… but now we’re glad to be home-sweet-home, with no trips on the horizon! :)

analogue wednesday #22


london, waterloo station. i really liked how this one turned out.

one second every day – may 2014

may was… all over the place! :)

some highlights:

– a short (but lovely) trip to guernsey, to launch their postcrossing stamp
– making cheese for the first time
– and then relocating to the countryside, studying, clocking in lots of family time :)

one second every day – april 2014

i’ve just realized i’ve been making these little one second videos for over a year now! hooray! :)

despite the bugs in the app and the last-minute-panics (“oh my god it’s almost midnight and we still haven’t filmed one second today!”), it’s been going well. i still miss around 1 or 2 seconds every month, and it still feels like most of them are really mundane… but i love the result and the thrill that watching these 1 second memories brings. they make everything so vivid!

plus, i’m always surprised at how many people seem to enjoy them as well! every now and then, friends, family or even people i’ve just met tell me they look forward to these little glimpses of our life every month. it’s funny, and it kind of makes me feel bad for being so lazy making them sometimes…

so anyway, i just wanted to say thanks for watching! here’s april for you all:

in april we ran, we roadtrip’d in bavaria (and ate an inordinate amount of sausages), saw the coolest museums, went to london for the second time, did a cooking course at leiths, met with lots of friends… it was ridiculously amazing! :D

ps – here is what the past year looked like:
2013: march, april, may, june, july, august, september, october, november, december.
2014: january, february, march.
