Three Word Thursday #25 I’m linking up with Amanda’s Running with Spoons for “Thinking Out loud” on Thursdays. I noticed that since I’ve started working, I’m much more focused and disciplined in general. I’m more tired, but I get stuff done. I make better plans and stick to them, because even though I’m leaving the […]
Three Word Thursday #23 Here’s my random ranting on this beautiful Thursday. I don’t even know where to start. Yes, I do. ξ First of all, I want to apologize to all my subscribers and facebook followers. I had to change my blog theme and after I uploaded the new demo, it send out all the sample […]
Three Word Thursday #22 My weekly wool gathering is again linked up with Amanda’s Running with Spoons. Hop over and check out other interesting arbitrary ideas. ξ There was an earthquake on Monday 6pm PST and we didn’t feel it. That happened before, but I’m starting to get a bit nervous. I’m […]

Back to school and other stuff. Thinking out loud #2 Last week I participated in this linkup from Amanda’s running with spoons for the first time.

I found this linkup on theinbetweenismine and I’d love to join Amanda at Running with Spoons in sharing my random thoughts on a Thursday. I’ve been irregularly posting my “Three Word Thursday” but maybe I can alternate between the two post formats. Writing about random stuff and having fun with it sounds great. It’s late on this […]
Bake a bread! You know what every German replies when asked “What do you miss about Germany?” “The bread!” (and probably “Brötchen”, too) That’s why I want to share my favorite bread recipe with you. It’s super easy, delicious and it comes pretty close to a good German “Körnerbrot” (whole grain or seed bread). The […]
Best of January – I haven’t really been consistent with my Three Word Thursdays, but I vow to improve. It is February and I’m glad that January 2017 is over. It was the worst January of the decade and we all know why. But now it’s over and I don’t only want to only remember the shitty […]
The last day…. of Barack Obama’s presidency is today. I’m so sad. This country has become my second home and even though I don’t love everything about the US (neither do I about Germany), this president and his family has become a part of my home here and my heart.
Words of the day
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risk, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun.

I’m Kathrin, a German who’s been living the last 9 years in the crazy world of Silicon Valley. Even though I love our life in California, I’m still missing Köln (Cologne) and the German lifestyle a lot. On this blog I share some of my stories and ruminate about what home really means. I’m a mother of two girls and the wife of an iSlave, a teacher, a social introvert and very passionate about the things I do.
I’m glad you’re here! Schön, dass du hier bist!
