About life and blogging

What I wore - At the lake

You might have noticed that my blog was kind of dead for the last three years. I really feel like I need to give you an explanation. But I also want you to know that I am back now. And I am planning to make this blog better than it ever was!

Personal: About my life and being a blogger

Personal: about life and being a blogger

When I started blogging about two years ago, I never imagined this site would be picked up this fast. In just a few months I had more visitors an page views than I thought was possible for me. But it was, and it made me really enthusiastic about this blog. The first 6 months I put up a blog post every single day. I loved it so much and I dreamed about it being my full time job.

Then I got sick. Severe pregnancy nausea. I couldn’t do anything and blogging was my last priority at that time. But I missed it, like I missed out on so many things back then. I’m still at home because now I have instability, again due to my pregnancy. So I’m still not able to do many things. But it’s getting better slowly. And really, my little boy makes it all worth it! He is the best that has ever happened to me. I love my little family!

Now it’s a year since I’ve got sick and stopped blogging regularly. I find it hard to get in the flow again, but I will get there! I want this blog to be a success and I want to keep inspiring you. I have many ideas for crafts, recipes and more. This blog is very important to me, and I promise I will get it back to where it ones was (plus more!).

A few months back I started blogging in Dutch too, but the plugin I used (qTranslate) was slowing my site (much) down, so I decided to go back to English only. If you want to read it in Dutch I suggest you could use Google translate.

Well that’s it for now. I hope you will keep reading my blog in the future and I promise I will be back tomorrow with a new post! XO Wilma


Personal – My sweet boy

Rens 2samen

My life has changed a lot since I became a mommy. Rens is the sweetest  little guy that I can imagine and I’m so proud! But also super in love with him. Much more than I could imagine. And I think that’s the biggest change: that overwhelming mother feeling. Every television program about the relationship between parent and child makes me cry. I thought I knew how it would feel to be a mommy but it is so much more than I could ever imagine. And by that I only mean the positive, I really would not want anything else!

I’m also super curious about his character. Will he be a rascal, is he musical, creative? And what color will his eyes be? I can’t wait, but at the same time I don’t want him to grow up too fast because he is so cute and small right now! XO Wilma

Baby, Me

37 weeks pregnant!

Finally I want to share a picture of my big belly with you. I’m 37 weeks pregnant now and I’m feeling a lot better than in before. We are looking forward to meeting our little guy or girl. We are also really curious about the gender! Tom thinks it will be a boy. I really have no clue.. We will see in just a few short weeks! XO Wilma

Baby, Me

A little update: We are expecting!


I wanted to give you a little update on how things are at the moment. I know I haven’t been blogging for a while now but there is a very good reason for that: we are expecting our first child! We are really exited about it and really looking forward to July 23. That’s the due date. You may wonder why I didn’t post because being pregnant alone isn’t really a good reason. Well I’m having extreme pregnancy nausea. I’ve been in the hospital for almost a month (I have been home shortly for Christmas) but now I’m home again. I’m still not feeling completely better but I’m feeling a lot better then before. I’m getting feed by a tube that goes trough my nose to my bowels and that makes it all a lot easier.

So for now you shouldn’t expect a lot of posts from me because I’m not feeling well enough just jet. But please don’t forget about me and my blog because I will be back! XO Wilma


Why I didn't blog for over a week…


Well it’s a long story… It started with me getting sick and lying in bed. I couldn’t even hold water inside. Than besides that I started to feel pain in my left hip. The nausea was getting better because of the medication I got from my doctor, but my hip just went worse and worse. By Saturday I couldn’t walk without a lot of help and I couldn’t stand up strait. I was in pain the whole day. Sunday it was still the same.

At that time I thought it would be a good idea to consult a doctor. The doctor send me to the hospital and I had to take some tests and pictures. Since then I stayed the hospital. Yesterday I finally saw a doctor who could do something about the pain. They say it’s an ignition. The cause is not known yet but they took some blood today to check. I’ve got an injection in my hip for it and today as by miracle the pain is as good as gone. Only thing is: I have to stay on my bed for two days and I’ve been told that if everything goes well I will be home at Friday.

So there you have it. The reason why I didn’t blog for over a week. I will be back blogging as soon as I’m able to do so! I now have my notebook here with me in the hospital so I can do some things. New DIY projects have to wait unfortunately but just wait… I will be back soon! XO Wilma
