In Life

001: Was so delighted to have my girl Eva come visit and stay with me in Berlin. Love having friends crash at my place! We always have such an incredible time when we hang out and this girl always makes me smile!
002: Currently on an unplanned trip back home to be with my family at the moment as we are dealing with a death in the family. The circumstances are obviously very sad but I am glad to be here for my family and to be surrounded by loved ones. I find it quite strange to publicize tragedy like this, but as someone who blogs about life and is very active on social media, I didn’t want to hide the fact that I am currently in the Western Hemisphere.
003: Really blessed to have incredible friends in my life who have all reached out concerning recent events. Having two of my closest friends here in Berlin independently volunteer to take care of my kitties while I spend some time at home really meant so much to me (Hey there Artur and Betti, I’m lookin at you guys)!

  • So sorry for your loss! Glad to hear you’ve got such great friends to help you out. Take care of yourself <3

  • Thinking of you my love, I hope you’re ok. Here if you need an ear :)
    I remember when we had a loss in the family, I wrote a post about it, but it was vague. Grief and death is a weird one to share at times, I think.

  • Ich steh auch total auf EggCanvas. Sie ist so cool und die Fotos sind der Hammer. Mein herzliches Beileid Rae. Worte helfen da nicht viel, aber schön das die Familie in der schweren Zeit beisammen ist. Ich wollte eigentlich auch nie über so persönliche Dinge bloggen, aber ich finde man fühlt sich dann irgendwie besser, wenn man darüber schreibt.
