Every road leads to the beach !

We are lucky enough to live on the island of Oleron, 500m away from the ocean, right next to a forest. For our holidays, we travel searching wind and waves!


4 at home, a new life

“The most important for me is to be with my family and enjoy every moment the four of us can spend together because time passes all too quickly!”


Home is a retreat – home means to arrive

This family feels comfortable when it is not too cluttered – Not too much things hanging on the walls and not too much color. Lori likes to keep the appartment clean and organized. Sometimes, however, a little bit of a mess is ok, even if there is somebody coming for a visit- thanks to her daughter Merle she became more relaxed, because time is running too fast, she prefers to do something with her.

Stuttgart is home – “We feel good here, that’s where we want to stay.”

I've known Flo for a long time - unfortunately, we had lost contact. When I heard that he had a daughter, I thought I finally had a good reason to visit him and his family in Stuttgart. In the interview, they tell us about their parental leave, their needs and what they prefer to do when they have time.


“Survival trick? Say good-bye to perfection!”

When we visited the small family in Stuttgart, I realized immediately that I wanted to portray them after the Homestory. We chose a sunny day and met again in Stuttgart, in the heart of the city that Flo loves to ride on his BMX. Read more here!

Little miss sunshine

It’s indeed something special to have a grandchild.

Living in the Stuttgart Heusteig district – the city life with a child

OH LA LA MAMA visited Tine, Flo and her two-year-old daughter, Ilvy. It wasn't only about checking their appartment out, we also wanted to know about their life in Stuttgart with a child and how their lives as parents changed. Read on and learn more about this sympathetic three and sometimes even four-headed family.

Guest contribution by Paula:

Every mum knows that all beginnings are hard. Your whole life changes and takes a new direction, and everything accelerates from 0 to 100. Already during the pregnancy, in 2014, I started to get into the baby topic, I think I have looked for 20 weeks at all kinds of different strollers until I could choose one. I have informed myself about cotton diapers and of course about baby carriers. However, I did not know about each and every important item yet. I received from friends an elastic baby sling and borrowed a tightly woven scarf. How exactly I would carry my child in there did not interest me at that time. I thought, somehow, with the help of videos from the Internet, I was going to make it.

A day in the life of Emmi & Pepe

Once we knew that we were expecting twins, it was clear that our lives would change quite a bit. I had been working at the university in Friedrichshafen until that time, and with Benni we used to spend days and evenings at the lake, as he is a triathlete and water enthousiast. Since the birth of the twins, the four of us are enjoying our free time as a crew and see the world from a different perspective, an exciting, wild and slightly careless perspective.
