Valerie and her boys

These images pretty much sum up what life is all about: unconditional love, having fun, being creative, lots of hugging and kissing, being outside and soaking up the spring sun … cappuccino and cookies (well, you can’t actually see them, they are securely hiding behind me ;-) ) etc. … This little cutiepatootie will be [...]

COFFEE TALK with Veronique Spiteri

The beautiful Veronique Spiteri is one of these inspiring women who always make you leave better and happier than you came. I was fortunate to meet Vero six years ago through two mutual lovely friends of ours. On one of my short stays in Cologne we spontaneously met for coffee and Vero introduced me to [...]

10 things I loved in Amsterdam

After three long months of Juliana constantly having the flu or some sort of cold and fever, we were all ready for a change of scenery. I actually don’t remember how we came up with Amsterdam, but it’s a beautiful city I have always loved. We took it all easy there, with no special tour [...]

Happy 13th Birthday, Nicolas!

As of today, we have two teenagers living in our home. Thirteen years ago he came into my life and has made me laugh and smile everyday since. He’s one of the greatest gifts life has provided me with. Since Juliana made us become parents for the first time, everything she did seemed kinda „normal“ [...]

It immediately let us reminisce over a time where smartphones didn’t rule the world, and where creating something state of the art was done with Wordart, ha! Johan and I [...]

A little different Christmas

This Christmas season had quite a few surprises for us in store. Right at the beginning of December, Juliana got really high fever (between 39,5 and 40,2 °C), and it wouldn’t cool down. We found out that she had the kissing disease (well just without the kissing), also known as infectious mononucleosis, caused by the [...]

Online-Kongress „Down Syndrom – leicht.er.leben!“

Als sich Mareike Fuisz im Juni bei mir gemeldet hat, um mich zu fragen, ob ich als Interviewpartnerin bei ihrem kostenlosen Online-Kongress "Down-Syndrom - leicht.er.leben!" im November mitmachen wolle, war ich gleichzeitig himmelhoch jauchzend und zu tode nervös. Aber dann dachte ich mir: „Augen zu und durch!“ Die perfekte Möglichkeit meine absolute Kamerascheu zu überwinden [...]
