As We Go On, We Remember...

My little brother is graduating from high school this weekend - we're so proud and excited for him! My aunt and uncle bought him an authentic pair of Lederhosen as a graduation present - look how handsome he looks! We spent Saturday with close friends and family eating, joking and celebrating...

Tobi, our one eyed retriever, spent the day trying to sneak bites from everyone's plates.
While photographing Max, he grabbed the camera and snapped a couple pictures of me.

We can tell that Viktoria got the modeling gene since after about 3 shots I felt so awkward I resorted to this face: 

No celebrations are complete without Jaeger shots, at least not in this family!

My Oma {that's Grandma for all you English speakers} came over for the celebration. Inspiration that you can by stylish at any age. 

My pretty sister Karoline.

Chris has been working really hard studying for his boards coming up in 3 weeks, so I was really excited that he could come join us for the day. My grandma just loves him....


My mother's famous tiramisu. If I had to choose 1 food to eat the rest of my life, then this is it. Recipe coming soon!

Since I have to wear pants and flats at work every day, I get really excited when I have the opportunity to wear dresses and skirts but since I don't get a chance to wear them often, I don't really own a lot. Since reading Whitney's blog {Between the Lines} I've been day dreaming about all the cute ways to find and wear skirts - she always looks so great!

I just discovered that we have a Loft in Madison, so I stopped by on my out of town on Friday. I found this great skirt {on sale for $20} but unfortunately it was at least a size too big. I bought it anyway and am going to try to alter it myself...we'll see how that goes. Anyone have any tips? Or should I save myself the hassle and just take it to a tailor?
