Sine Thieme grew up in Germany, moved to the United States in the 1990s, and has moved her family of six between three continents. She is a travel writer, small business owner, and now artisan bread maker.

It is her firm belief that no matter where you are in life, it is the small moments of joy that make a big difference. And it’s hard to imagine a more joyful start to your day than a freshly buttered slice of crusty bread.
