May i show you ...

Woran ich in der letzten Zeit gearbeitet habe?
What i've been working on in the past weeks?

Die Sommerausgabe von KidsLife! 
The summer edition of KidsLife!

Ich bin so aufgeregt!
I am so exited!

Weil ich glaube, es ist eine der schönsten Ausgaben, die wir je gemacht haben, vollgepackt mit schönen Bilden, interessanten Beiträgen und Sommerspaß für fröhliche Familien. Das wundervolle Coverfoto stammt von Jen Carver. Und es gibt einen Artikel über eine besondere Blogfreundin von mir - eine Mutter von 5 Kindern, die mich mit ihrer Kreativität und Lebensfreude immer wieder begeistert: Libbie Doyle. Außerdem stellen wir diesmal unser neues Baby vor "GreenKidsLife" - eine Kreativ-Beilage für Kinder, erarbeitet mit der S.O.F. Umweltstiftung aus Hamburg.

KidsLife im Onlinekiosk: Hier und hier

Because i think it's one of our nicest editions ever and i'm simply in love with that cute cover girl, taken by the wonderful Jen Carver. And it's got an article about a great blogfriend of mine - a mother of 5 who i just admire for her creativity and positive energy - Libbie Doyle. It's packed with summer-family-fun,   and i'm happy to introduce our new launch of Green KidsLife, a creative supplement for kids that is meant to inspire them as well as their parents to a greener, more sustainable lifestyle. 
At the moment, it's only available in german, but i hope we do manage to get an international issue as well soon. 

Da die letzte Zeit zwar schön, aber auch sehr anstrengend gewesen ist, gönne ich mir mit meinem Mann eine kleine Reise an die italienische Blumenriviera. Bis zum 15. Juni lege ich eine Blogpause ein - und wünsche Euch allen eine wunderbare Zeit. Es soll ja auch hier nun endlich wärmer werden!
Lasst es Euch gut gehen - ich freue mich darauf, Euch alle bald wieder zu besuchen!

Because the last time has been full of inspiration but also packed with work and rain. hubby and i are leaving for a little vacation to the Italian Riviera - to freshen up our energies and spirits. We'll be back on the 15th of June, and i hope you will all have a grand old time in the meantime. I look forward to visit you again and send you lots of love!
