A ladies weekend. 

Last Saturday around noon, four ladies arrived at my doorstep for a day in the country: Dana, Giulia, Nicola and Susanne. All of them internet aquaintances; two of them I knew already, two of them I didn´t. Here´s the thing about virtual friends though: There´s always an instant connection in real life. The idea of this weekend was to harvest, cook and eat together - and take pictures, of course. Because that´s what ladies from the internet do, as illustrated above.

I think I can safely say that we all had a great time. I love when people enjoy the space we have created here in our little corner of the world. I know how we live is different and sadly, "different" is rarely popular with the masses. That´s one of the reasons I blog: You probably come here because you enjoy what we do and how we live. The blog gives me a sense of community that sometimes is missing in real life. And when I get to meet some of you kind people in real life? That´s even better!

Funnily enough, even though at some point I had pitched this weekend as a "photography workshop", I took the fantastic amount of 13 pictures. I enjoyed it all too much to pick up my camera. And thankfully, I had some very talented photographers by my side who took way better pictures than I ever could. Case in point: Nicola´s recap (with a new favorite pic of me - I made them take photos of me with rhubarb because I always wanted a picture of me with rhubarb. It´s probably a very Kinfolkish thing to do, but I don´t mind).

I´ll update this post with links if and when my fellow weekenders post more pictures (NO PRESSURE). Thank you again ladies for coming here, I can´t wait for our next meet-up in autumn!

Susanne.

Giulia.

What an incredibly wonderful plan! I absolutely subscribe to "different"! It's compelling and so very attractive.

Dear Katrin,
thank you again for inviting me into your beautiful home - I honestly enjoyed every second and felt privileged to meet you and Giulia, Nicola and Susanne. So I also cannot wait until autumn to spend time with you again!

All the best, Dana

Es gab so viele Momente an denen ich die Wärme und Inspiration der 24 nach gespürt habe. So wie jetzt in Gedanken an deinen Morgenkaffee und den Satz ' kann ich dir noch etwas Gutes tun' ...

What a lovely idea, I loved the pictures your friends took, the different angles. Personally I like following your blog/instagram is because you keep it real, its interesting, I love your house and garden and maybe one day I will have the garden of my dreams...but until that day happens I can just look at your garden and dream!..so keep it up please!..and in the meantime I await my invite...kidding...I might never leave!x
