Easter and Update

All of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you had a nice one.
So, what do we do in Germany? My family used to have a big Easter breakfast (without guests, just my sister and my parents). After that the kids would search eggs in the garden, or, if the weather was bad, inside the house. Today my future hubbie's parents and my mom were visiting our grandparents and my sis was on holiday, so we organized the breakfast for whoever was left (not much, let me tell you...) I did some last minute watercolor egg painting and we had rolls and a walnut ciabatta I had prepared and eggs, different kinds of cheeses, sausages, smoked salmon, jam and a lot more. In the picture you can see our dining room table after the breakfast. All the books you see there are cook books... I have a little obsession.

So, what else is planned after one month of this blog? We have a few more contributions of the cultural ambassador series (cross culture email swap) which I am working on right now. I have worked a little on the layout as well and will have to start thinking about a header soon. I am also preparing my second tutorial, still something Japanese, I can tell you. And then there are all the little topics that come to my mind. Oh, and some travelling experience. If there's anything specific you'd like to see or contribute, don't hesitate to let me know.
Thanks to all my readers for your interest and comments, I hope you'll enjoy future contributions as much as I do.

it has taken me a wee while to figure out your blog but I really like what you are doing!! You should use http://draft.blogger.com - it gives you more control over the design, you can have three columns and theres a layout generator. I use that now instead of directly with blogger.com

If you want a hand with a header I dont mind helping? I have a degree in graphic design and photography. Up to you.

I love your easter flowers. Tulips are my mums favourites in spring time so our house is always packed! This year though it has been daffodills.. she went crazy and every vase in the house is filled!

That is a great interview/tutorial. And the Hashbrowns make me hungry.

Thanks again for all your comments. They mean a lot to me. And I'll get back to all of you for the header.

@ hearthandmade:
Thanks for all the the tips, I'll look into it. Flowers have started to be very important for me this year. The colors, scents, the freshness... I love flowers. I usually just go for the cheap supermarket bouquets and try to make the best of it.
