Außergewöhnlich in der Stuttgarter Zeitung

Nicolas und Juliana haben Großes vor. Mehr geht dann eigentlich gar nicht mehr. Jedenfalls nicht im Wasser und nicht unter Aufsicht der Schwimmjuroren. Das Geschwisterpaar ist gut im Training. Es wird Anfang Mai wohl klappen mit dem goldenen Totenkopfabzeichen. Dann haben es der Zwölfjährige und seine 15-jährige Schwester amtlich und mit Urkunde: sie können beide [...]

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

Juliana and Felix have been knowing each other since her early baby days. Felix had always been one of the coolest kids on the block and luckily just around our block, so they grew up together. When Felix' family moved away, we were all crushed. They are heavily missed, luckily we get to see them [...]

Happy 12th Birthday, Nicolas!

I remember when both my kids were babies, I photographed them every single day. I literally had folders I actually named after the date and not after the event. Nowadays it’s events, because the older the kids get, the less I photograph them. They are teens now, and are much more conscious about themselves. And [...]

HAPPY MONDAY with Kevin Tarte

It took us a little over three months to finally get back together and celebrate our adventurous trip to Rome and of course Kevin’s calendar. The original plan was to do an Italian movie night over at Kevin’s and watching one of my favorite movies of all time „Roman Holiday“ and snacking on Italian dolce [...]

The other day I had thanked one of my loyal and sweet followers who always throws kindness around like confetti for her wonderful feedback. Every time she goes out of her way and takes the time to appreciate my work, she truly makes my day in ways she’ll never know. Giving feedback truly is an [...]

🎉 Happy New Year 🎉

It’s one of my favorite times of the year, the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. (Almost) everyone is taking the days off, and our days were filled with visiting friends & family or having our favorite people over for good food and drinks. It's the time of the year to reflect and look [...]

46plus kids escorting the VfB Stuttgart

Last Monday night 13 dreams came true. Our kids with and without a little extra who had participated at our local soccer club's inclusion camp this fall, had the once-in-a-lifetime-chance to escort the players from the VfB Stuttgart into the stade. What a magical moment! Our 46PLUS kids (and all the super proud parents!) are [...]

Happy 15th Birthday, Juliana! ♥

I believe I started my last 14 birthday blog posts about my little girl with "time has flown by so incredibly fast" .... but I promise I won't today. ;-) Today's post is more about how Juliana always inspires me and gives me food for thought. This last year I did a lot of reflection [...]
