Happy New Year everybody!

Such a dejá vu from our last post, somehow. If you ask us directly, it’s a bit hard to explain how it happened. We might eventually go back into it in the future, but not for now- at least not yet.
We’re happy to restart posting once again and definitely plan on updating our blog a lot more this year. Well, we can’t do worse than 2018!
If you’re someone that takes “New Years” as a time for renewal or even if you don’t really pay attention to calendars, we wish you a Happy New Year of 2019!

Now let’s get busy!

★See you soon and stay inspired!★
