Why Haven’t You Heard from Me? It’s been over a year since I posted something on my blog. Why, you ask? The answer is easy. I got a full-time job which made my blog turn into a different priority. A new job comes with more work at the office, being behind a computer, and of course it consumes a lot of time. So, the last thing I wanted was to spend more time behind it, even if that meant I did not get to follow one of my passions. Nonetheless I decided to keep it up and not to change it to a “book shop only”. And, now I couldn’t be happier about this decision. #trustthetimingofyourlife This springtime is for sure special, and my mood swings range from “will this ever be over?” to “it could be worse”. The unknow future Continue Reading
My 2018 Recap – 10 Reasons Why It Was the Best Thing Ever Not to Go Back to Work All Year.
It is already Mid of January when you read this, but it took me a while and I needed a moment to find out what my overall take away on 2018 would be. I wrote down my thoughts, looked through all the photos I took in 2018 as well as went through my email inbox.While doing all of that, it became pretty clear to me: The best thing about 2018 was that I did not go back to work. Here is why: THE SECRET OF GETTING AHEAD IS GETTING STARTED One important thing that made this year such a happy and good one for me is that I knew projects that I wanted to do going into this year. I knew that I wanted to write a book, that I wanted to take trips and go.see.do with Lucy and that I wanted to get fit and healthy again. Having these goals in Continue Reading
BACK TO SCHOOL
When I was still in school summer was always my favorite season. The weather was nice, we were out and about all day, went on unforgettable family vacations in Italy, spend all day windsurfing, playing at the beach with friends, enjoyed good food, didn’t worry about a thing, most of the time didn’t have to do anything tasks or homework, the parents were a pretty in a good mood as well and it was just a good time overall. Also, our back then six weeks of school vacation felt forever and always too short at the same time. When it was time to go back to school we were excited about the first day and also sad that the summer felt like it was over. If you were lucky you could still wear your brand-new Italian summer dresses and there were Continue Reading
LIFE IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE MAKE OTHER PLANS
“So you will be gone next weekend? But we had this girls weekend set for months now. You can’t be at the wedding? Honestly, isn’t there anybody else that can go on this site visit?” Over the last 15 years those kind of questions occurred frequently and my family and friends got used to fact that they would be healthier and easier for them not to get to excited for me to come and visit already days before. They would rather start to get excited when I actually made and stood in front of them. Also, I am pretty used to the fact that things change all the time. We would be planning a job and felt like we just had figured out everything when we had to learn that the whole concept needs to be changed, the event day would be re-scheduled Continue Reading
I went back and forth about introducing another big project aka #mylittlelucy on this blog or not. There are a lot pro and con’s (“no, this is not a mommy-only blog, it could be distracting from the lebook project & sneaker actions” and “your baby will be all over your life anyways, so think twice” or “it will be fun to talk about it, why not – it’s the truth you are going to be a mom and you’ll love it”) Long story cut short I decided to #goforit #justdo it. If it doesn’t work or if I doesn’t like it anymore, I can always stop talking and writing about it. Deal? I have moved to beautiful Portland Oregon in Fall 2012 and since then it has been my husband and myself living the dream in the Pacific Northwest. We got to meet a lot Continue Reading
