Taken at The Michelburger Hotel during a goodbye brunch for my girl Carly and her family
001: Full of goodbye parties and brunches, the ITB Trade show, apartment hunting, photoshoot and blogging, this week was more than just a little bit hectic, which resulted in me getting extremely ill the other day, which is a reminder to me to step back and take a break sometimes. It can be hard to sit back and relax when you are founding a company of one, but you are of no use to anyone if you run yourself so ragged that you have to call an ambulance!
002: Had a lovely little party at my house with 6 of my friends last night in honor of my girl Betti getting a new job and biting just a wee bit homesick. The party was equipped with all things British, ended with getting drunk and watching The IT Crowd, and may or may not have included putting mustaches on my two cats. (Photographic evidence here and here.)
