{Quote of the Week.}

You should always remember that who you are, and your lovability and kindness has nothing to do with the person you like and or love. Even if you don’t win their heart, and the feelings aren’t reciprocated, you will be a better person for trying, and you will find someone who will recognize that and love you for it. - unknown

Popping in real quick...

Hi dear readers!

I hope you've had a wonderful start to Advent so far... I have been incredibly busy lately with my new job and getting used my new groove in Hamburg. (Read: finding out how to make it to the grocery stores after work before they close at 8 p.m...)

But things are good. Really good. 

For the first time in who knows how long, I am really, really proud of myself. And feel challenged. And am excited to get up in the morning. Oh, how much can change for the wonderful in just a short amount of time.

As for this space, I have no plans of giving it up anytime soon. I just seem to be lost in a sea of chaos at the moment (but the good kind of chaos, the best kind of chaos).

So for those who keep checking in, thank you. I'm working on a few posts for you, and in the meantime, had to share this beautiful comic by Lucy Knisely my friend Mackenzie showed me.

It gives me hope. Truly.

My beautiful Grandma Allen, 1950-something

I still remember the day the world took you back
and there was never time 
to thank you for the thousand scattered moments 
you left behind to watch us while we slept

Hamburg, October 2014, My daily route

“It doesn't matter what people tell you. It doesn't matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you're headed in the exact right direction.” - Alice Hoffman

Hamburg is for lovers (and other happenings lately).

Hamburg, October 2014

I've been pretty quiet around here lately on account of having moved across the world again. Turns out such things keep you pretty busy. Oh how I've missed "busy".

The end of 2013 and the first half of 2014 were rough, to say the least. Remember my coming home from Munich and how it ripped me in half? I'm still on the mend, but recovery is everything.

It was in August when I was offered a job in Hamburg. I was over-the-moon. Still am. It's exactly what my heart was urging me to do; return to Germany. 

And Hamburg is a hop, skip, and a jump from my old stomping grounds of my old au pair days. My host mom from that time, turned surrogate big sister, turned great confidant keeps reminding me that it was Schicksal (fate). I trust this. I truly do.

So for the past month I had been searching for an apartment and picking up from where we left off when I left my Eckernfoerde family. 

My heart and soul and hope needed this happenstance more than anyone could possibly understand. 

Of course I miss my family. Heaps. In fact, after a left my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their first baby, a Miss Eleanor Constance, and just last week my sister Katie and brother-in-law added baby number three to their "Party of Four" with sweet baby Gwyneth Elizabeth. But my nephews are pretty Skype savvy, so I get a lot of messages reminding me that I'm away but still thought of. ;) 

But since I signed on my new apartment and have gotten a little more settled, I'll keep you all better updated. Promise. 

After all, there's so much more I've been meaning to write.
