    Happy New Year!

    Did everyone have a good start into 2019? We had delicious Ragout Fin, then cuddled up on the couch watching Netflix. At midnight, we went outside to watch the fireworks, but it was so cold that we scurried inside again quickly afterwards! I wish you all the best for the New Year! I hope you […]

    Merry Christmas!

    In Germany, we celebrate Christmas starting Christmas Eve. Tonight, we’ll open gifts, eat cookies and listen to holiday music at my parents’ house! My MIL and her husband will visit us on Dec 26th. We’ll be cooking Christmas dinner, which is really exciting because I’ve never really done that before! Merry Christmas! Wherever you are, […]

    So what’s new?

    I’m super excited about celebrating Christmas season in our apartment together!

    Hey guys, it’s been awhile since my last update! I’ve been busy mostly with my master thesis – and worrying if I bit off more than I can chew when I chose my topic. What’s more, my lack of a regular daily routine has given me a lot of time to think, and that’s probably […]

  • In celebration of a wonderful woman

    In celebration of a wonderful woman

    Today I’ll write a different kind of blog, because I want to honour a very special person in my life who passed away a few weeks ago. My Grandma was the kindest person I’ve ever known. She’d listen to everyone who needed a shoulder to cry on, she’d give generously to any charity (as evidenced […]
