When I start reading a new blog, I always go to the ‘About Me’ section first. Because I am so interested in finding out a bit more about the blogger. Male or female? Girl or woman? Where from? Job? Hobbies?

I actually began discovering blogs, when I got engaged. The whole wedding thing was a completely new world for me. And I couldn’t wait to find out as much as possible about it. Otherwise how are you supposed to make decisions for your own ‘big day’? So I got online, googled wedding and found my first wedding blog. I cannot even remember which one it was, but from there on I was sucked in. I followed one link upon link, from blogroll to blogroll, I saved my favourites and quickly moved on with the ones, who weren’t after my fancy. I read and read, I looked at millions of pictures and collected trillions of ideas and pieces of advice. I learnt so much: about weddings, about blogs, about people. I will definitely share my favourite wedding websites and blogs and maybe also some of my wedding photos with you at some point.

Not now, however, because I think it is now really about time to introduce myself properly ;-) Like in the old friendship books (“Freundebuecher”) we used to keep in primary school ;-) Do you know what a friendship book is? Maybe this is a very German thing? Anyway, here is my information page:

Name Nina

Pet name although I have a multitude of pet names, Ninotschka is my favourite. Because it sounds exotic and affectionate. Thanks D. for giving me this name – I love it! It also reminds me of the gorgeous movie with Greta Garbo, with whom I share a passion for crazy hats.

And that’s why my blog is called Ninotschka. Pretty straightforward, hmmm?
Age 33 almost 34

That’s it for today. More about my family – tomorrow. See you then ;-)
