•••
Photo © Tabea Mathern I don’t know about you, but I really suck at the new years resolution thing. As my culture celebrates the turning of the year in January and I somehow always miss leaving wintery Berlin in time, I often start into the year being freezing cold and not as motivated as my resolutions demand.

I love love in all its forms: the warmth of a partner's body next to yours, the voice of a true friend asking you how you are, a calm moment of real self-appreciation, the intimate giggles you share with your sister, your mom and dad carefully watching your very first steps to make sure you do[...]
