    I’d love to meet you there, Megan. What do you say?

    Bleib Treu = be true. You are such an example of being true to your dreams that I am sure you will be in Berlin before you know it.

    Megan, I’m traveling to Berlin for a week with my almost 2-year-old daughter inJanuary. I know there is much to see in the city but most people talk about the nightlife and the clubs, etc – I can’t seem to find any good resources on things to do with a toddler. What are you looking forward to doing with Alice? Any recommendations?

    We have just arrived in New Zealand for a 3 month stay, it’s taken a lot of planning with two young kids but its an adventure. And we think will be worth all the saving and planning. I hope you make your dream come true soon.

  • Ally

    Would love to read a post about your plans are to make this happen.
    Aka Logistics.
    I think a lot of us, would LOVE to live abroad, but the logisitcs on things like health insurance, visas, jobs!, renting your home etc make it seem impossible.
    Anyways, Congrats and I hope it becomes a reality for you very soon!

      Exactly, Ally! How do we shift everything over to a new place? Or manage things back home from a distance? Moving locally is enough of a hassle that it’s tough to image doing that on a bigger scale. Maybe the fantastic Chris Guillebeau has tips on this sort of thing?

Bye old friend: Quitting Diet Coke.

It's now been one month since I quiet Diet Coke cold turkey. I had been drinking 6-8 cans per day, from when I woke up to when I went to sleep. That's a lot, but I'd been drinking more or less that for about 10 years. I don't like coffee or tea, so soda was my only source of caffeine, which I thought I needed to exist.

Letter to Alice no. 32

As I look back over the letters I’ve written you in the past, I feel like there’s a theme of reassurance, joy, and calm in the gifts you give me as your mother. You seem to always make my life easier exactly when I need it most. My heart is always yours, and it will always be yours, in every world, in every life, in every drawing you make, in every dream you have.

Progress report: A muted jewel tone bouquet

I've got the thread pile and pincushions back out on my lap and I've got a bazillion movies queued up on Netflix, and that can only mean one thing--I'm back in the saddle doing some more bridal bouquets! Here are some flowers I finished tonight that shows the first phase finished. Next come the buttons, choosing the perfect color and shape for each flower to compliment the bride's vision for the color and tone of the bouquet. After that, each flower gets stemmed and arranged, and then I start working on filler flowers and leaves which are added last. The colors used in these flowers might seem kind of all-over-the-place, but once the buttons are added and they're arranged together, it will look very cohesive.

New for March: My favorites!

It's that time of year when we're starting to get a lot of new things into the shop, but this season is even more exciting to me because so many of our designers are brand new to us as well. I'm noticing a theme throughout my favorite picks--lots of words and messages. I generally think it's good to let your clothes speak for themselves, that they don't need to speak for you, but a playful message here and there (especially one of our enamel lapel pins on a conservative business suit?) can be memorable in a good way.
