not just another trip to the airport...

I love it when friends and family get to come in for a visit and are able to see this beautiful country.  Not to mention it's a nice change being able to see their faces rather than the occasional postcard.  But let's face it... long drives to and from the airport can be a bit of a drag.  So it was really exciting to finally visit Frankfurt, and drive right past the airport without stopping.  The city was a breath of fresh air, just what I needed.  Lots of big buildings... and oh man, the shopping... well I must say I was smitten.  Can't wait to go back and explore some more.  Until then, here's a few pics from my visit...

material girls

Did I mention, I LOVE DESIGN?  I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Interior Design.  I suppose I should credit that time of my life to discovering my creativity (I was probably better suited for law, any classmate would attest to that).  And although I am not currently practicing the art of Interior Design for others...  I have a few very inspiring colleagues and friends who are.  Meet a few of the Material Girls...

Her name is Emily Johnston, and she is seriously the cutest little thing.  A random tidbit of hilarity... it is rumored that a college professor said she would never be a Designer.  Whoa, wait... back up, WHAT??  Well I'm here to tell you... she most certainly IS a Designer, and a damn fine one at that!!

Her name is Lauren Haskett, and her sense of fashion is absolutely ridiculous...  Her creativity is endless, and I distinctly remember she was always someone you wanted on your team.  She resides in Houston and currently specializes in kitchen and bath design.

Together, their ambition amazes me, so I'm adding them to my list of fabulous people.  They are the Founders of a hip, fresh, & quite impressive blog which I rather enjoy.  Check it out, you'll be happy you did.

ten random things about me:

it seems i have a love-hate relationship with my computer.  there are days it's all i see, and then there are days i refuse to allow myself to even sit down in front of it.  blogging seems so foreign to me, somehow impersonal.  but in this day and age, where it's all the rage, i find myself discovering new things.  finding inspiration.  and in not so sunny germany... well let's just say it's a breath of fresh air to find like-minded people, whether it be in life or in cyberspace.  so how to get this ball rolling??  i suppose i shall start off light with a few minor tidbits about me...  super exciting stuff, i know.  so please try to contain yourself.

one.  my dog is my favorite person
two.  green is my signature color
three.  socks need not match and should always be patterned
four.  i heart photography, graphics, architecture, & design
five.  chairs are a HUGE weakness
six.  i'm often seen with a cup of coffee in hand
