You+Me

I know it is not always easy. That is, being human.

I believe you sometimes just need some grace.

I believe

While this part is supposed to be my bio, where I tell you about my two and half decades of experience, and why I am qualified to do this and to do that - I first want to tell you about what motivates me. What inspires me. What has lead me to my path and what keeps me going through all the ups and down . . .

I believe.
I believe in you. Really, I do!
I believe that you have loads of potential.
I believe that you can be your best self.
I believe you sometimes just need some grace.
I believe that you can do (more) great things.
I believe you can make a positive impact.

I know it is not always easy. That is, being human. Humans have it tough and sometimes we just need support, a peaceful environment, an encouraging word, a helping hand, a moment to breathe a moment alone. Sometimes we just need a moment. A moment where we can just be human without all the preconceptions, definitions and labels.

So when I look back over the past two and half decades, I see my path has always been driven by this belief . . . in you.

It all started when…

I was a little girl and I would just obsess over the way the table was set. There was the red and white checkered three-ringed Betty Crocker cookbook (yes, I am on my way to 50 years old) and I would look at the photos of the table-settings and try to create a similar look.

When I think back, I realized it was not so much about the styling that was driving me, but more so about making the table nice for my family. I wanted them to have a relaxing time and - even as a small child - I had a hunch that a pretty and warm environment would do the trick.
