Apartment Tour {finally!}

It’s hard to believe that, as of just a couple of weeks ago, Drew and I have been living in Germany for 2 years! The time has gone by quickly at times and has seemed to go on forever at others. Two years ago we moved into an apartment with no kitchen, no light fixtures, no drapes, none of our “stuff”, and no furniture. It was bare to the bone and it felt unfamiliar. Over time we have built a kitchen, hung lights, painted the walls, bought furniture, came to terms with our not fitting in, caught up with our stuff and turned it into a home.

And then we forgot to share the final result with everyone.


Between German classes, getting pregnant, traveling the world, giving birth and raising a baby in Germany, somehow it slipped our minds. It was always our intention, we just simply forgot.

So today, just over two years after moving into our penthouse tree house in Hannover, we are sharing our home with you in this nine minute video. I wouldn’t say our apartment is “finished” at this point (aren’t all homes constantly changing?), but I will say that it finally does feel like “home“.

    Hi Lisa,
    I have been peeking into your blog here and there since you moved to Germany, but never made any comments (or did I?). You create a very lovely, home feeling, place. Vibrant colors with your personal touch makes everything feels warm and welcoming. Your tree apparment is not a place anymore, it is a state of your mind and happiness! PS: Congratulation on an adorable baby girl.
