January 1, 2013

I’m taking a vacation. A mostly real vacation (more on that later). Not a vacation where I go to someone’s wedding (which is still really awesome) or a vacation where I’m really at a conference (although WDS rocked my socks off), but an honest to goodness vacation. So, from January 15, 2013 to February 15, 2013, I’m out of the office. I’m going to be in Germany with H, visiting family (eating way too much of Oma’s cooking) and traveling for part of it, but I’m also going to work on some personal projects and step back. Getting ready for the wedding season.

Here’s the lowdown:
–I will not be blogging or on Facebook or Twitter (most likely, though I make no promises). I will not be doing print orders. You can submit a print order, but I won’t be able to get it in until after February 15th.
–I will be answering my email, it’s just going to take me a while. I will still be booking clients for weddings in 2013 (or beyond!).
–I am not planning to do anything but personal shoots while I’m gone (although, for the right person/couple…). So, if you’re in Berlin, Frankfurt, or Munich (more or less) in that time frame, hit me up. Or if you have advice on where to go, what to see and eat, and how to do it all in not enough time, I’d be FOREVER grateful.

Which is why it’s a mostly real vacation. I’m still answering your emails. I’m still booking your weddings. But I am not going to be on social media, and I’m not taking my laptop. Can I just say, this is the first time I’ve gone on vacation without my laptop in…years. I’m so excited.

Also, I am really thankful for friends who offer to take care of my diva kitty and stay in my home while we travel. I am such a lucky lady.

Servus! I’m Emily and you’ve found my little corner of the internet, where I write about travel, intentionally living with less stuff, and living as a German-American family in Munich, Germany.  Want to know more?
