Hi, my name is Joanne Johansen and this is a personal journal of our adventures as a family, my lessons as a mother and tales of the home.   I’m a stay-at-home-mom of two precious-spectacular-explosive toddlers Christopher & Sophia.  Married to my brilliant love Bradley, we live in a little house that’s constantly being renovated, in the northern suburbs of beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.

Remembering and constantly reminded that time waits for no one and children grow up too quickly; this is also a long-overdue diary of everything from their big milestones to those tiny moments (so many memories already lost), documented for my mother Claire, who lives on the other side of the world in Germany.

I love photography (especially ones with my kids), making lists, fabulous food, DIY, magazines (admittedly addicted to the DIY kind), crafting/organising/decorating, vintage stuff, good ideas… and i love sharing what i love!

Hope you enjoy it!

♥ Jo
