Hello, I’m Kristin, founder of Miniluu and co-founder of a Manhattan based family of four. The mister is from Germany and I’m from California. We met outside a flower shop one summer day when I was feeling down and decided to take a break from work to buy a bouquet to cheer up my desk. A few months later our relationship began and a few months after that we decided to start a family.
This is us:
Did you notice the age difference? The pro is that he’s old enough to know there’s no such thing as a sane woman. The con is that it’s heartbreaking to know I’ll probably outlive him by a couple of decades. Plus he drives me crazy when he snail mails bills or says things like “What’s np mean?”
November of 2009 added this little package of sheer beauty to our lives [Maximilian]:
And that’s when my life began.
In March 2012, after a rocky pregnancy, this peaceful little bird [Alexandria] joined the nest. It taught me just how much beauty and calm can come from chaos.
That same week my online store Minilluu was also born. It’s a lovingly curated selection of clothing, toys, furniture, gear and essentials for little ones. It’s a one woman show, if you can believe it. Yea, I’m just crazy like that.
A sneak peak at some of Miniluu photo shoot ”fun” with Max:
The two most important things to me are family [that's a given] and healthy living [because I find that helps all of the other areas of my life]. And the 3rd most important is to work hard in all areas of life. Which I guess must be why I moved to this blasted place NY. Getting by here with a family gives new meaning to the phrase hard work.
Things I love: clothes, Bikram yoga, any and every type of fruit
Things I wish I had more of in my life: nature, square footage and time
