Heart Handmade Interviews…

My husband! Wow! Tee just told me that Marichelle from the Heart Handmade blog interviewed him in her “other half” series, a column she writes to highlight the significant others behind the bloggers out there. I love the column idea and am so pleased to see that Thorsten participated. I really loved reading his answers to some of her questions, like how we met, how he supports me with blogging, 5 random things about him, etc.

This is by far the sweetest interview ever, thank you Tee and Marichelle!

    This is such a sweet interview. I first heard about your blog through Dawanda when I downloaded your presentation about blogging at the Berlin event. My ears perked up when I heard that you too were an American living in Germany (sometimes), and married to a German man that you had met on the internet. I guess that would make two of us who share the same story. I love stories about husband and wife duos/teams (your story, Amy Butler, and others) because that is how my husband and I also work, which I have playfully named him my “partner in crime”. I do the creative side and my patient and supportive husband does all the German side that I cannot do yet. But for me it has always been my dream and secret desire to have that kind of support. Again lovely interview and Grüße aus Hamburg.

    What a lovely interview Holly. Sounds like you found a real gem there! I am so envious (in the nicest possible way). You seem like such an awesome person that I am so happy you have found someone who appreciates and admires you. I think we all deserve to be adored – you especially!

    xo Terri
