Hi.

Welcome to my Blog

A Documentation of a family life in Munich & Sydney

An old year and a new year

Oh 2010, what a year.
Full of emotions, thinking, decisions, farewells and significant changes. Those of you, who follow me on this blog already for a while know that this is the year in which I moved from Hamburg to Sydney ...
I wanted to say thank you for coming by here, for leaving lovely comments or just for saying a little hello....

2011, hopefully you will be a year of exciting, surprising moments, moments in which we feel well and comfortable and also full of love, luck and just what we want from life

Let's have a wonderful new year ....
