Can't pretend it happened yesterday...

 Really, it's the best clock ever...

... but I can't pretend I took this picture today, or yesterday, or even last week ;).

One of the good things about keeping some sort of blog or journal is that it's such a nice record of what's happening right here, right now. It's a fast and easy way to save some images of/thoughts about what's going on in our daily life that's flying by so crazily fast. I like the idea that I can go back to a certain date, even years ago, and see some glimpses of what life was like back then. And who knows, if blogs like these can be preserved in some way or another, maybe even Rosa and Julie can look back at those small records of their daily life as young kids when they're older.

But the disadvantage of this 'here and now' concept of blogs is that if you don't keep the record straight away, you'll probably never do it anymore. I take lots of pictures, but often I don't have the time or energy to properly edit them and turn them into something that feels worth posting. And then once I finally have some time on my hands, the pictures are already weeks old and their 'blog momentum' seems gone: cute pictures of a toothless Julie (who now already has nine teeth), some nice images of the house two or three incarnations before it's current one (I do still have some nice images of all our freshly wallpapered walls in a further still empty house, anyone interested?), funny images of a city trip during our Christmas holiday... They often already seem way too much 'in the past' once I get the chance to have a proper look at the pictures.

So I think it's about time to show you some of our 2013 summer holiday pictures... ;)

Back then Julie was only a 7-month-old baby and we were in the middle of our big moving house project. Before we bought the house, we had already booked a summer holiday to this nice place called Boheems Paradijs, a small holiday site where you can stay in original 1950s and 1960s circus and gypsy caravans. And though the timing turned out to be a bit inconvenient (the holiday was planned exactly halfway the month that we had for renovating and moving into our new house), we decided to go anyway, because everyone needs a holiday every so often, right?

It was very hot, Julie was sick for the first few days and we did have some moving house stress at the beginning of the holiday... But it was a great place for a short holiday with young kids, and the vintage caravans with their colorful retro interiors were fairly cool!

Well, that's about all I remember... Which once again proves that it's wise to keep track of things immediately if you want to keep some memories!

Ik begriijp precies wat je bedoeld.. dat is ook de reden waarom ik wat minder blog. Maar vanuit lezersperspectief maakt het niets uit: toch geweldig om die vakantiefoto's nog even te mogen bekijken;)

Hey,

ik ben supergek van je behangpapier (achter je klok met datum op). Mag ik weten waar je dit haalde? groetjes, kris

@ Kris: het behang heet Paradiset van Josef Frank. Het is volgens mij alleen hier te krijgen, in Zweden (daar heb ik het tenminste besteld): http://www.svenskttenn.se/en-us/product/ta12119/wallpaper-paradiset.aspx
