I'll say it straight away: I am so lucky to be friends with some of the most wonderful, inspirational, and successful design bloggers like Mr. Bazaar aka Will Taylor from Bright.Bazaar or the one and only Holly Becker from decor8blog. Last week, I had the unique opportunity to meet Holly for the very first time in person right here in Munich. She was over to launch her best-seller Decorate as a German issue (Lust auf Wohnen by publisher Callwey) and hosted a little and intimate get-together of creative people in a cute little store named Nostalgie im Kinderzimmer.
I was so happy to finally meet Holly in person. We've known each other for a year through Twitter and Facebook and it was incredible to meet face to face. It felt like we'd known each other for a long time and instantaneously we felt like real blogger friends. We joked around, posed with our iPhones for Instagram, and had some interesting chats with other guests regarding networking and the German blogger scene. Moreover, Holly's husband Thorsten was there (who also happens to be one of my online teachers over at Blogging Your Way) so I used the opportunity and chatted with him on photography and copyright issues. Very interesting and lots to learn! I also happened to meet some interesting guests like the wonderful Eleanor from e.m.papers, a super creative American stationery designer living in Munich.
Despite the fact that I was in such a rush due to my daytime job, I so enjoyed the lovely get together with Holly, Thorsten, and their guests and even got my Decorate copy signed. Bliss!
