This weekend was amazing for MANY reasons.  Now that it is all over I am feeling incredibly inspired and motivated, but more importantly so thankful for the amazing bloggers I finally got the chance to meet in person.  Emily suggested the idea of an Expat-Blogger Lunch before the Hive Conference started and naturally I waited until last week to find a place to host it, but luckily I found a great little restaurant on Linienstraße in Mitte.  Lokal had been on my “restaurants to try list” for ages and the long tables and gorgeous window light were the perfect fit, on top of having organic, modern German food.  It also seems fitting that they use a blog as their website ;)  Would it sound totally crazy if I told you that it felt like I already knew some of these girls even though we had never met before?  All of them were even more lovely than I had imagined and SO creative and inspiring!  I have really needed a bit of a push lately to get myself on track creatively and this weekend and the support of my incredibly supportive blog friends was exactly what I needed.  Stay tuned for a post about the Hive Conference (which is the reason everyone was in town)- there is LOTS more to share from the weekend!
