Honestly, I never really understood all the rage about blogging. Yes, I can write down whatever I want, and almost nobody will ever read it. That’s great. So what’s the big freaking deal? Why is blogging so 2.0, and what does that even mean?
(Check Wikipedia if you are looking for a serious answer (there you go Brad coworker, I learned my English punctuation lesson today. No comma before the if. Just let it flow.)) Anyway, without getting into more technicalities – I found this blog, and I love it: http://www.younghouselove.com/. I can keep reading and reading, and commenting, and getting inspired by it all day long. It’s my new favorite thing. Especially now that I have a little casita on my own and can finally come out of my renter’s closet and make a real home! The blog is about a young couple – now turned family – who bought their first house and started blogging about their kitchen renovation. (All those parallels. Read about our kitchen renovation in the next post). Then they kept renovating and reporting and painting and taking photos and documenting it all for the world to see. Their decorating style is THE bomb, their writing skills genius, and on top of that they seem like really cool people. Now they make their living by doing exactly that. Isn’t that just too cool?
Check out their projects, their house, and their stories. Reading this blog is pretty addicting right now for me. There are so many great ideas about how to home-ify your house that I am willing to go full force forward and sacrificing all my rare free evenings to keep going with my own young house love.
Now don’t get any ideas. I am not becoming a full time blogger any time soon or even later. But I definitely found great inspiration to post more frequently, because there might always be someone out there who is just remotely interested in what I have to share. Or maybe there are even a few people who can find themselves in what my life is about: love, family, house, nature, interculturality, the world, and other stories.

One of the uncountable reasons I love Lincoln so much is because he can make me smile with these simple, but unexpected comments. It doesn´t take him many or fancy words to be creative with language and express thoughts in such an adorable way: (more…)
