Searching for fairies

When the sun goes down and al the “good well behaved kids” go to bed so all the “good and responsible parents” can go and tidy up the house (and then Netflix) But let’s be honest… that’s just boring! So just once in a while, we just get our lanterns and put on our exploring boots! There is nothing more magical than searching for fairies in the dark!

Magic. It’s real if you believe in it. We saw it with our own eyes! Fairies shooting over the fields and grazing the water. Twinkling little lights and fairy bells if you look and listen hard enough. You can spot them especially from the corner of your eyes!

And if you get scared for what reason what so ever… just SING a happy song as loud as you can. The fear will melt away guaranteed. Because we all know that singing creates a magical positivity protection bubble all around you. That’s just common sense.

And cuddles. Lots of cuddles. These girls are the bravest and strongest explorers I know! Oh, how we love to explore the fields in the dark. Magical things happen in the dark. Especially if you have a wild imagination and truly open mind. We create our own reality.

Who needs to sleep when we can dream out loud…

Thank you for a beautiful summer

Summers like these is is where memories are made.
Moments we will treasure forever.
Days like this one.
Sunshine, friends, and family… all we need!
We gathered together to celebrate the summer and our friendships, to chill, talk, eat, laugh and be happy!

True friendships to us don’t mean we have t meet every week, or even every month or year. It doesn’t mean we talk over phone on a daily basis. We have a busy life, and our friends are busy too. But when it comes down to it, they will be there to share the important moments with us and if you need them you know you can call them anytime. And they know they can call us whenever they need us!

We loved to share the first harvest of our veggie garden with our friends in a beautifully styled BBQ garden party! The hot summer weather asked for ice cold beverages so we teamed up with the delicious brand’s  Roestig Blond Beer, Lemonaid+ & Charry tea to keep our guests fresh and hydrated!

We hope you love our homage video to our friendships and the summer!

We also get together in a new-year dinner, would you like to see that one in a winter edition video!? Let me know in my insta post or in the comments below!

Throwback: Mountains of Montcada, Barcelona

Last year, I thought: “Let’s give the blogging thing another go after 10 years of not blogging!”
I took my Instagram name and looked if the Website URL was still available. And it was!
So Wild & BOHO was going to be my new blog. Since I’m a video maker, I wanted to start a vlog channel on Youtube and see If it was something for me.

Ever since high school I’ve been blogging and photographing my life. More like a personal online diary for everyone to read.
Somehow it worked therapeutically for me! For more than 8 years I Blogged purely for myself. And then Facebook came… Sharing my stories, experiences and thoughts got much easier on there. The more content I posted on Facebook the less content I posted on my blog until I got pregnant and realized I hadn’t written any posts in 3 years. I Downloaded all my content from the blog and shut down the website.

Now, 3 kids, a Home, Lots of travels, A Instagram profile and 7 years later after Stopping with blogging I felt the need again for a place to Post our stories, Photography, video’s, opinions, tips, tricks, favorites and everything else that we want to share with our followers…

So here’s a throwback photo series we’ve made between baby nr.1 and baby nr.2
December 2014 on a mountain we were visiting my family in Spain close to Barcelona, and we went for a hike on the mountain and I took some of my new dresses with me to shoot some photo’s next to a historic site called Ermita de Sant Pere de Reixac

So this is one of the photo series I’ve Posted on Facebook and was one of the first photos I’ve uploaded on my Instagram account but never on a blog.

I have so much fun throwback stuff that’s backed up somewhere…Like the pregnancy self-portrait photo’s I made of myself and the ones Wouter Keuris made of me! Lots of #Vanlife Roadtrips and lots more!  Maybe I’ll do a #Throwback Blogpost on here once in a while…
Might be fun to look back and see where we’ve been up to in the last couple of years…What do you think? Good idea or rather “stay in the NOW”? Let me know in the comments below!

To the Moony and back

Having small kids, a career, wanting to have a free life and travel a lot, running a household can be a bit much sometimes!
Having extreme happy moments, and then the extreme overwhelming exhaustion kicks in! Feeling so tired at the end of every single day I tend to get a bit frustrated. Will this ever get any easier!? Everything is such a struggle. Never a moment of peace. Always moving, always something or someone to take care of, clean, work, manage.

But at the end of the day, I go through the pictures of the last couple of months and I realize… Years from now I will probably look back and see that these are the happiest years of my life! The childhood of girls, seeing them grow up, and experiencing so much love in our little family is the best thing that ever happened to me!

Our family photo’s always have been so important to me. And as soon as I tend to forget how lucky I am (because all parents know… this parenting thing is HARD and completely exhausting) I Flip open one my photo albums and my heart just opens up, my racing mind just calms down and I get this wave of gratefulness that just washes over me like a Tsunami of LOVE!

Photo’s make me remember what my heart already knows but what my head is to busy to notice. Looking at our photo’s is a tool to help me just stop and be mindful, it helps me realize how many good things are happening right now! And most important, It helps me focus on all the positive, instead of on the few negatives in my life!

Therefore I would say having photo prints and/or albums is improving my quality of life! And it’s so valuable to have as we will grow older and our lives, the world, and the people around us will change too. Photos are little time capsules. Great to have to lay around, amazing to be able to give your children as they grow up.

There are so many advantages to having photo’s in print! It just basically makes me really really really happy whenever I look at them. I got so inspired by that feeling of happiness while flipping through my new Moonylab book that I decided to make this happy little video with our DJI drone!

Moonylab is offering all of my followers a 10% discount using the code Wildandboho10 while placing your order!

Check out our video, and then the backstage Images below that Michiel took from me while I was shooting this video!

Hope you enjoy my outburst of happiness in this little experiment-video.
I put the video on my NEW InstaTV channel for the world to see!
Would you like to see more of these short videos on my Instagram?
