Hommage to Anja
Anja's daughter had already made me look at her twice on the first day of the school year: a beautiful open face, with a wide cheeky smile, a gorgeous toothy gap and a blonde bob haircut - she was the nordic face of all nordic faces!
Anja and I spend many hours in the months to follow, enjoying each other's company: drawing parallels between the local "Stilbruch" and Sydney opp-shops, walking through Hamburg's flee-markets where we had met by sheer coincidence (and then spending the rest of the afternoon chatting away), showing each other latest finds, hearing about her blogging adventures and sharing concerns regarding children, men, family and life.
Anja has been a gregarious, giving friend and an enormous inspiration - and I hope that with this blog being on the verge of hitting 1000 views, she will be happy to be the ONE that will get me across this milestone! ;-)
