Josephine Jenssen’s Gedanken über das Thema “Vereinbarkeit”

6k1a2012

Auf unserem Blog „ourlittletreasuresoflife“ wollen wir, wie der Name schon sagt, Schätze aus verschiedenen Lebensbereichen mit unseren Leserinnen und Lesern teilen. Dabei wollen wir nicht nur unterhalten und inspirieren, sondern auch zeigen, welchen Aufwand diese Schätze manchmal bedeuten. Wir möchten auch der Frage vieler Leserinnen und Leser nachgehen: „Wie schafft Ihr das bloß?“ Und in manchen anspruchsvollen Bereichen unseres Lebens und Alltags fragen wir uns selbst immer wieder: „Wie kriegen wir das unter einen Hut?“ Es geht um Machbarkeit und Vereinbarkeit. Wir wollen uns verstärkt dem Thema Vereinbarkeit widmen und auch andere Perspektiven mit einbeziehen. Read More

Sardinien im November – Sommer tanken vor dem Winter

von Christian Zottl

Unser Urlaubstermin stand schon lange fest, nur das Reiseziel hielten wir uns bis zuletzt offen. Wo könnte man im November – in dieser Zwischenjahreszeit – noch gut Urlaub machen? Noch etwas Sommer-Sonne tanken vor dem Winter? Immer wieder hatten wir an Flugreisen ins Warme gedacht. Kanarische Inseln zum Beispiel. Aber mit zwei Kindern werden Flugreisen, trotz der Sonderangebote, schon von Grund auf etwas kostspielig, zuzüglich der Übernachtungskosten und ggf. eingeschränkter Mobilität vor Ort. Dann doch lieber mit dem VW-Bus losfahren, flexibel bleiben und die Unterkunft schon inklusive dabei haben. Also warten – bis der Wetterbericht zuverlässig wird. Read More

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

as promised earlier this week, here’s the second part with information about forest kindergarten equipment and outdoor equipment we use since some of you asked. those clothes/products i introduce are the ones we’ve been using and tested so far. i just laid them on the wooden wardrobe my husband built and photographed them there, because that’s where we dress before we go outside and that’s where our outdoor clothes are storaged.

forest kindergarten in germany – a little insight

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

a few readers asked me to write about “what is forest kindergarten?” and about “forest kindergarten equipment”. well, actually i didn’t want to write about it now. first, because we are “the new ones” in forest kindergarten and i think it takes a while to come out with founded information about it and also a reflected feedback of what we treasure most about it and of what we see a bit critical. and second, i thought it would make more sense to write about forest kindergarten equipment in the winter or next spring, after we actually tested our clothes in the colder ‘minus degree’ and in the wettest season.but since some of you are looking for some information now, in the fall, i’ll give you sort of an overlook with this post of what forest kindergarten is and how forest kindergarten life looks like in our case.there will be a second post coming soon about our personal equipment and their sources.

Andrea Jacob about compatibility

201601_bendigo

I’m really happy to share Andrea’s thoughts on compatibility with you today. She has become a friend to me. And even though i got to know her through the digital world via Instagram, we finally met last year and connected for real.We went for walks at the chiemsee lake together with our kids. Back then we already realized that we share some same passions, like our passion for the mountains and being outdoors. Those digital connections that come true in real life and that grow even though a distance seperates, are so very precious to me. And i’m really thankful that i got to know Andrea, her thoughts on so many topics we often exchange, her ideas and inputs that i take along and that often have been really helpful, encouraging and constructive. Andrea also loves to write and has a blog, but because she has not so much time at the moment to write, you can follow that link to her Instagram site, where you can see and hear more of her and her views of life e.g.

Andrea lives in Australia with her husband and two kids, was born and raised in Romania and then moved to germany/bavarian alps when she was about 6 years old. Those different countries she has lived in, shape a lot of her current life with the kids and her husband. In the Interview below you can read why and which aspects of life this affects.
