My Precious, Hoarded Stash of DAISO Store Envelopes

My husband and I have traveled a lot of the world together, Australia, India, Mexico, Ecuador, all through Europe and the U.S. By far the most exhilarating trip we ever took together was a quick few days in Tokyo. It was the last stop on a tour that started from Germany, to Western Australia and on to California for our second wedding ceremony. Besides booking hotel and grabbing a travel guide at the airport in Singapore, we didn't plan for it at all. We were both surprised by the backslapping openness of the people. We loved the food. We went to the fish market at 5 a.m. and ate the most incredible sashimi I have ever tasted (up until that point I thought I...

Gardening Pinterest Board

Happy March! There may still be snow on the ground where you live, but if you're anything like me, you're already thinking about what you can plant this spring.

Passion Project: Hochzeitsliga Munich

About two years ago, I participated in the first Deutsche Hochzeitskongress, a conference for wedding bloggers, planners, stationers, photographers and more. It was a fantastic experience.  The event was really well put together and it showed that the wedding industry here in Germany had really grown up. While there I got a chance to connect with many of my fellow Munich-based wedding vendors and idea was born. Collectively we really knew who were the coolest, non-mainstream wedding vendors in Munich, why not highlight this knowledge and share this insider expertise with the world? With that Hochzeitsliga was born. Hochzeitsliga is a site that curates and publishes in one place wedding vendors that we would use if we were doing it all over...
