How awkward am I if I don't find that bakery comment that awkward? 😆

Joanna, I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, but never sure when/where it was appropriate to ask - how is Kim? Ever since the update a while back I’ve been thinking of her.

Abby’s (entirely accurate) love letter to Chicago made me homesick, in the best way! 💔

Eleven years ago, I moved to Chattanooga TN for a job, having no reference point for the city or state beyond basic Googling. I came alone on a leap of faith: young and broke and hopeful.

And though I am decidedly more "outsidey" than "outdoorsy," living somewhere with easy access to water, forests, and mountains has made life feel extraordinary. Awe is just so accessible. Strongly recommended for swooners and dreamers - or, you know, people who actually enjoy getting scruffed up in nature. :)

Is this a good place to Ask For A Friend (me)?

I'm travelling to Miami in April (first time in the USA) and I'd love some help on things to do and local brands to look out for. Please tell me about your city! As it's mostly a work trip I won't have too much time, so I want to cut through TripAdvisor/Google and go straight to your favourites. Thanks so much.

Anja's sentiment about moving away from Berlin -"like breaking up with someone you still love"- is exactly how I've been describing my family's move. It's nice to know that someone out there understands that particular feeling.

I love the city/move review! I’m forever in flux between staying in New York, moving back to Athens where my family is, or move somewhere else entirely. It’s so reassuring to see others struggle and deal with this!

I am so excited about the t-shirt rec!! Why is finding a good one that actually looks chic so tough?? Also, saving this nut-free granola recipe.
