Friday Link Love

Friday Link Love –

It’s late on Friday and the weekend is already here. How did that happen? At least it finally stopped raining today and the forecast for tomorrow (but just for tomorrow…) looks like perfect Biergarten weather! Do you have anything fun planned, too? Since Sunday is forecasted to by grey and rainy again in this neck of the woods, you might be looking for something thoughtful / fun / inspiring to add to your reading list. Look no further – here are my favorite Friday links!

1 – Interesting thoughts on marriage and change:

Feeling oppressed by change or lack of change; it’s a tale as old as time. Yet at some point in any long-term relationship, each partner is likely to evolve from the person we fell in love with into someone new — and not always into someone cuter or smarter or more fun.

2 – A scientific follow-up on my Kinderkunsthaus-post and the importance of staying curious.

3 – A library in your front yard – isn’t that the best idea ever? There’s a bike and walking path right behind our house – THE perfect spot for a back yard library! Readers in Burghausen, what do you think?

4 – For those of you in Germany: have you heard about the new magazine Süddeutsche Zeitung Familie? It’s actually a two-in-one magazine: one magazine that entertains the kids and gives the parents time to read the other part. Hurry! The first issue is available for free right now!

5 – A very long list of inspiring advice on writing. My favorite?

Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia. Kurt Vonnegut

6 – As the temperatures are slowly rising here in Germany, my craving for iced-cold coffee drinks has started. Since I can’t just pick up this delicious cold brew concentrate from my favorite coffee shop in Chattanooga, I need to start DIYing my own version. This and this recipe look promising. You could even brew it in a mason jar!

7 – A letter to parents of expat kids. Such a good read and very helpful advice.

8 – Would this shop on wheels work as a creative meeting space / coffee shop, too? (discovered on Design Sponge)?

Have you been following me on Instagram? Right now I’m participating in the May Instagram challenge #meetthebloggerDE organized by Anne Häusler. Each day for 14 consecutive days German bloggers are answering blog-related questions, such as:

What do you blog about?


What has been your biggest success as a blogger so far?

There’s more than a week of questions to go so stay tuned for more insights into my thoughts and future plans for the blog. And if you are looking for new blogs to add to your blogroll, you can just follow the hashtag #meetthebloggerDE on Instagram and – ta da – the German blog world opens up to you! I’ve already discovered so so many new blogs.

Wishing you lots of sunshine and no rain clouds on the horizon!

Have a great weekend, y’all!
