Introducing Hasi & Co.

I can't believe this is real and I finally get to share this with you. I'm so very pleased to launch Hasi & Co.!

Clean! White! New name! Organization! Easy to use! White! Clean... Obviously I needed a jumping pic in order to truly portray how I feel about all this. 

I loved my time at my first site and will always have a soft spot for it. The 2 years spent there are responsible for the realization that blogging is something I value and want to continue. But I have outgrown it and it doesn't feel like "me" anymore. A friend pointed out that A Wandering Heart was the younger ""-esque version of a more grown up email address (and yes that was the email I picked when I was 12). As an artist and designer, I need a space that reflects my style changes and the place I'm at in life. 

And so, here we are at last: Hasi & Co.

I have so many dreams and hopes for this place, but the biggest one is that this blog becomes an uplifting place celebrating the beautiful everyday. My days aren't filled with grandiose events or luxurious styles. But they are full to the brim with creamy coffee, kitten cuddles and a really hot husband. These and so many more joys are the things I love and want to share. I'm so thankful for all I've been given. It's the process of writing, photographing, and taking a moment to reflect on it all that helps me gain perspective, cultivate gratitude, and refocus on the important things. 

I hope Hasi & Co. becomes a joyful place. An art journal. A space to create. A place for stories and friendships. And most of all, I hope you'll join me.

If you are wondering where this funny little name came from, here's an explanation:

Why Hasi & Company?

I’ve been known as Esther-hasi since childhood. Hasi means bunny in German. It's my favorite German nickname given to me by an Austrian uncle.

When thinking of a name for this little corner that would encompass my wide range of interests, I wanted something that would convey this blog as a place where my passions gather. That’s why I choose Hasi & Company — in other words: “Esther & Everything I enjoy” or “Me and all I Love” or “A girl named Bunny & her Friends.” Hasi & Co. is just a more succinct way of saying all those things.

If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
