Dear Friends we are celebrating today with food wine and friendship. Why you ask? Well let me tell you. Seems we have added two more helping hands here in the studio. That’s right. Let’s have a warm welcome to the new Creative Editors Kelsey Schmidt and Marina Hagelmann. Kelsey will be heading up the American side of the studio and Marina will be in charge of the German side of the studio. I can’t tell you what a wonderful addition these two are. Their skills are so needed and it will give me a rest. As with any big announcement food is never too far behind. With Edith Geddis joining us as Studio Manager and Kelsey and Marina heading up the creative editing department we decided to have a huge barbecue. Everyone joined in. The air was just cool enough and the sun broke through every now and again to provid us with lovely day to be outside.
Marina is a wonderful person and such a creative individual. I first met her on my origional trip to Germany. Her warmth radiates and her creative skill in writing is captivating. She currently works on a blog https://wohnwagenliebe.de/ and is a camping enthusiast. From this love of caravans she has developed a journal for campers. Her art work adorns the pages and creative works prompts fellow campers to keep track of phone numbers, friends, favorite camp sites and even a song list. She currently is writing a book on her children. We will be sure to keep you posted on when that will hit bookstores. I don’t want to give too much away.
So welcome Marina

It’s always wonderful to be here in Bad Oeynhausen, it feels like home. The garden is just about ready to burst with color and life. The grandchildren giggle and chase each other in the garden. Our voices, both in German and English carry through the meadow next to the woodland. Deep within the woods I am sure that the fairy’s stir with in their cozy little homes. Our laughter like music to their ears. They are just about to journey to Nicola’s garden where the flowers are just now forcing their head through the soil. Their is magic here.
Love to you all
