    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?

Father’s Day 2015

It seems like the older I get, the more grateful I am for your influence, wisdom, and positivity...as you predicted often when I was growing up, to my fervent disbelief. Your devotion and love for my mom, my brother, and me is unmatched as my most influential example of stability, comfort, and family. You are never short on time, love, advice, or a moving truck when I need it. Not everyone I know is so fortunate, and it’s just amazing luck that you got my mom pregnant after you met doing Peter Pan at the Blair Community Theater. ...That turned out really well for me.

Ten Things I Learned From my Best Friend xRahRahx

My business partner Sarah is known for being full of kindness, compassion, and patience, but my favorite thing about working with her is that she has me constantly dying every single day because she is one of the most hilarious people in history. Besides just having lots of laughs, I feel like I've experienced a lot of growth thanks to her influence over the past few years. These lessons including but not limited to...

An open letter to restless young entrepreneurs who can’t wait any longer

“Follow your passion” is not exactly great advice, right? How is it helpful when you are trying to "follow" "something" but not really living? It’s not that I’m passionate about embroidering felt or coworking or helping independent designers gain exposure. I’m passionate about being independent and having freedom, and this is the means I’ve found to achieve that. A mentor of mine says that there is an art to finding success through entrepreneurship or freelancing, and that has to do with finding the overlap between what you like to do and what other people are willing to pay for. Not everything is marketable, he says (though some would disagree). On top of being useful and interesting to consumers, I think you have to be remarkably, extraordinarily good at what you do, which is only possible if you like what you do. You have to find your real motivation, because there is always going to be someone in the world working twice as hard as you for the same thing.

A Pretty Bridal Bouquet Inspired by “Dusty Jewel Tones”

About a month ago I was contacted by a bride to create a bouquet inspired by a muted, pretty palette of rich colors. I loved the combination and was excited to take on another bridal client, which led me to finish the bouquet (plus a few bonus boutonnieres) within a few weeks. It was nice to be working on flowers again, and I followed my whim and inspiration to do things a little bit differently this time. Each flower and leaf is much more highly embellished than work I have done in the past, and I created more types of flowers (many of them found in my book, Fabric Blooms) to arrange into the bouquet.

Embroidered Things for Rebecca

Lately I've been embroidering really small things--portraits, simple objects, flowers, but much more detailed things, and all at about three inches square. I made these three pictures and framed them for my friend Rebecca Forsyth on her birthday today.
