    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.

    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?

What would you do with a billion dollars?

Lately Sarah and I were talking about how much a million is, how much a billion is. The most striking thing I read recently that put it into perspective was that a million seconds is about a week and a half, but a billion seconds is nearly 32 years. Sarah asked me, what would I…

2014, in list form.

Wise people always say not to focus on the negative. It turns out that that's good advice, because there's a lot of positive out there. I was in a depressy mood last week depressing to my friend/advisor/midnight oil hero Jason about something I typically depress about, and when we started talking about what was good this year instead of bad, it felt like a much more successful year. Wildly so. Adventurous. Daring. Extraordinary. Fortuitous. And not nearly all work-related. My intention for 2015 is "less surviving, more living," but I sure did squeeze a lot of life out of the past year or so. 2014 is going down in history. Why not make a list? Here's mine.

Know that the next year will surpass all others.

"Oh passion-filled days, all steadfast and young, know that the next year will surpass all others, because it is new, and because it will be filled with moments that will remain unspoken of harsh and light, right along with your steady heart.
When we allow ourselves the sweetness of now, we may have all of the adventures that life has to offer in the coming year—if we are so fortunate as to have one."

Alice Elfie’s Day Off

Alice and I stayed home today so we could start making presents for our family. It's hard to find much time to be together and do any of that between getting off work and bedtime, so we both took a day off! We listened to the Mariah Carey holiday Pandora station all day and had personal pan pizzas delivered for lunch, and ate all the cookies we wanted from a cookie exchange we went to last weekend. Here's what we made, including links!

OOTD: Clothes to covet

Today Alice and I are staying home to work on all of our Christmas gifts together! With my new work schedule, there isn't a lot of time between work and bed to finish any meaningful projects together, so we both took the day off to make and wrap all of our gifts. One thing on my gift list is this outfit. If we don't sell out of my size before the holidays, I'll definitely be buying it from the store. Usually I just buy whatever I want as things come in or order extra for myself, but during the holidays I want to give all of our extra inventory a chance to sell at full price before I snatch it up.
