If you don’t mind can you tell me what you do on Valentines Day and what it means to you!? Ilze P.S. I spent my day in the studio and had a wonderful […]

Monday (a day after my name day)

As you know I do this blog for myself to remember and that is the reason why blog post titles sometimes are weird… Like today! This is lovely Monday already! Sipping coffee and puzzling my jigsaw puzzle! Girls are in kindergarten and I can have a quite & easy morning. Yesterday was a lovely time together with my family and […]

Another year!? 2nd Anniversary.

The blog post “Up till 5am” posted on January 9, 2017, was a point where I realize I’m not afraid to be less than perfect, miserable, confused, different and powerless! It was like a self-discovery without jugging.  Two years ago I’ve started to “be myself”, to love myself and to write freely to keep my memories alive and I’m thankful […]

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all! Well, it’s almost 10pm but I’m sitting on the sofa and thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Well, I’m not the resolution fun but this year it feels like I will lose myself if I don’t have any “resolution”, “rules”,  “dreams” or “guides”. I will have time to think about that tomorrow. I’ll be back […]

Opening

Finally, I’m (not) ready to open my photo studio! The Grand (is it?) opening will be on Saturday 25.08.2018 from 11:30 till 15:30. If you are in Gulbene – please visit! Most of the things gone wrong, but I feel it meant to be that way! For example, I ordered a big chesterfield sofa and received 3 boxes with just […]

Sunday: Birthday Party

Sunday we were at a birthday party for Linna’s kindergarten colleague Lizabella. That was fun! Girls enjoyed inflatable attractions while I took my camera out and start to capture kids and moms with kids… Loved it so much Ilze  

Nelle is 6 now!

So, I was off the blogging cause I “made” Nelles’ birthday party! This was my 12th kids birthday party I have thrown. Well, I would say I never learn! Still doing it by myself, still cooking, baking cakes, making decorations, cleaning, planting flowers, etc… even when I don’t have much time left. This is called love, I guess… I hope […]

Paw Patrol and Nelles birthday

My little Nelle will be 6 next Monday, but we will have an early celebration on this Saturday! Only five days left till Nelles party and I have no “idea” how to make a Paw Patrol themed party for her without having Paw Patrol party supplies in the closest shops. So, I wasn’t planning to buy any Paw Patrol decoration, […]
