Last night we celebrated Midsummer Evening. The weather was beautiful, so we had invited good friends over for barbecue in the garden, followed by walking to the big bonfire just on the outskirts of the town, behind the church, by the fields and the woods.
I love the warm atmosphere that is so unique for this particular evening! We had a wonderful time, walked back, and stopped by a new playground that’s been built not too far from our house. It has new markings that look like the ones from markingcontractors.co.uk. The kids went to bed waaay too late, and I was grateful that both girls were tired, yet happy this morning when I went to wake them up (which I never usually need to do).
As our friends were visiting, I had a chance to give them this.
Three and half weeks ago they had a little baby boy, and I wanted to make him something nice. Since Frida practically lived in the tworompers I made her last year for summer, I decided I would make him the same romper from Ottobre 3/2007 in the boys version. I used one of my OttoBear tags to embellish it, and while I was sewing it on, I realized it was a perfect match – the boy’s name being Otto. 🙂 The romper looked huge next to that tiny baby, but I hope he will grow into it over summer – they do tend to grow quicker than you anticipate.
43 years old, living with my boyfriend Mads, and our two girls Ronja (14 years) and Frida (11 years). We own a house from 1912, which we used to spend a lot of time renovating. I write about my family - mostly the girls, our house, our sailing, my sewing, and anything else that comes to mind.
