Seven weeks with baby and easily the best seven weeks of my life. Although it feels like ages ago that I’ve given birth, it’s somehow scary that she’ll be two months old in a couple of days! This little girl is so much fun and I seriously can’t remember what it was like before she came (I know, such a cliché)!

I’m so excited to formally announce the birth of our sweet baby girl on this little blog!!
Already two weeks have zoomed by since our little Nova Celeste came into the world, twelve days early, on December 29th 2014 at 7 lbs and 7 oz (3380g).
It has been the best weeks of our life and both Tassilo and I are so very much in love with this little girl! All we’ve done for the past two weeks is family cuddling, starring at her cute little face and taking gazillions of pictures.

Hey everyone! I hope you had wonderful Christmas with lots of nice food, laughter & happiness! We spent our first ever Christmas away from home and celebrated Christmas Eve with good friends & great food! We’re are really enjoying those last, relaxing days as just the two of us with lots of reading, cuddling and hot chocolate while having hospital bag & car seat ready to go :) Those last weeks of pregnancy have been as tough as everybody told me beforehand but I won’t complain since it won’t be much longer until we finally meet our sweet little baby! We’re so excited!!

Over the last couple of years I’ve become quite picky when it comes to the quality of my shoes because especially in Winter it’s crucial to have some nice quality boots that keep your feet warm and dry. Overknees are a big thing this season and I was happy about a shoe trend that would actually keep my legs warm, can be matched with thick woolen socks and can easily be dressed up or down. The fact that Overknees will even work well with a fancy Christmas dress and are still comfortable when you’re nine months pregnant (watch for a zipper at the side unless you want to wear them for the rest of your pregnant life) make them worth an investment, don’t you think?
However, the tradeoff between not too much of an investment (say good bye to Stuart Weitzman) and not compromising on good quality at the same time turned out to be quite a challenge here in the US. Maybe I’m not familiar enough with all the brands/shops yet but all of the Overknees that I looked at/ordered online were either suuuper expensive, not made of leather or looked more like biker boots.

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to attend one of westelms biggest event of the season, a customized christmas stocking workshop with Naomi & Josh Davis of love taza!!
I’ve been reading their blog for years now and these two are probably my favorite bloggers/instagramers of all time which made the event even more special!!
We made our personalized stockings, had too much hot chocolate and donuts and everything was just so festive and fun :D Turned out my craft skills haven’t improved since kindergarten (already complained about everything crafty back then haha) but my surprisingly crafty husband made up for it (Who’d have guessed that after 7 years together you could still learn sth new about each other?)
Below are a few pictures of the event, enjoy!

I know, I know. Sometimes those quotes are just so f**ing deep or lame that it hurts (“love your life” kay, thanks, bye) BUT some are actually really good reminders of what’s important in life or what matters the most to you.
I became quite fond of my carefully selected quotes on pinterest and sometimes during those late-night-iphone-pinning-sessions-in-bed (sounds familiar?) it feels so good to look at them and think about your own principles in life. Read More >

Whew! Busy times over here right now. The holiday season is of course always filled with a lot of events and Christmas parties but right now I’m also trying my best to make as much use as possible of those last days where I can manage to move around the city.
I’m already waddling in slow motion and I have to plan my daily activities carefully because it might as well be that this one trip to the post office already marks the end of that days adventures :D
So while I’m busy crossing off all those christmassy activities in the city as quickly as possible, I still got some pictures from our days in Vermont for you.
The bump will soon be gone so no pictures should get left behind ;)

A few weeks ago was my 28th Birthday (I know, waaaaay behind on my blogging) and my husband took me on a little birthday-/babymoon trip to Manchester Vermont, Portland Maine and Boston! So the very early morning on the day of my birthday I got surprised with the perfect breakfast in bed before we headed downtown to get our awesome rental car (all thanks to the nice lady who gave us a car upgrade “for the birthday girl & the baby”!) and we drove all the way to the Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester, Vermont. It’s a super cute little town that makes you feel like you stepped into the Gilmore Girls set and stayed at the Gilmore mansion of Lorelai’s parents. It was already freezing out there and we were enjoying the breathtaking scenery and crisp air so much! Like all our trips, this one was equally centered around all the restaurants we wanted to try in the area and If you ever happen to be around, do yourself a favor and eat at the silver fork!!

Hey everyone! What are you up to this weekend? We have a great weekend ahead of us with an engagement party, a housewarming party, brunch with friends and lots of other fun activities planned. (in 99.9% of the time “fun activities” is the codeword for awesome food in this house. Just to be clear) But weekends are also the time to grab a nice cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy this wonderful thing called internet – here are some marvelous links to do so. Enjoy!

So far November has been quite good to us. Last weekend we enjoyed a warm and sunny afternoon walk around the upper west side, having a nice snack at whole foods columbus circle before strolling back home through central park.
Slowly I have to begin to carefully plan and portion those little activities a bit more because my body doesn’t approve of walking the city the whole day anymore. So there are no spontaneous “First, shopping in Soho, then coffee in Williamsburg, before dinner & cinema in midtown” days for the next couple of weeks ;)
But I do have to say that I don’t miss our car at all so far. It feels so good to be outside everyday and always walk everywhere. Maybe because everybody does it and nobody has a car? Anyways, let’s hope for another sunny week in November :)

Isn’t it funny how time seems to move at an incredibly low pace when you’re waiting for something? We’ve tracked the months, weeks and now days with the pregnancy and the closer we get (8 weeks to go!) the slower each moment seems to pass. We’re beyond excited to finally meet her and although we haven’t bought a single thing yet *cough*, we feel SO ready to do this!
Here are some new stats and some random facts about being pregnant in the US since so many of you asked :)
Also look at those chubby little baby cheeks!!
