homemade pickles are my favorite :)

Andreas and I spent the weekend in Munich celebrating our dear friend Mary’s birthday.  I am still under the weather and on Friday night I somehow managed to fall asleep while dancing at an electro disco (and I was sober). Even though I was feeling a bit like a grandmother, it was still a great weekend.  It seems that fall decided to only last a few weeks this year, because it is freezing here in Europe and feels most definitely like winter.  We braved the cold during the day and walked the streets and through the Englischer Garten, where the foliage was bright and beautiful.  It was so refreshing that for once, almost only German was spoken for an entire weekend.  It is habit to speak english with friends here, because that is the language we met speaking, but it surely doesn’t help me one bit.  It makes me oh so happy when people make the effort to speak german with me.  I still make a million mistakes, but at least we are making some progress…

Today marks one month since we tied the knot!  I cannot believe how quickly the last few weeks have gone!  We got a sneak peak at some of our wedding photos tonight and we were laughing and crying at the same time, I can’t wait to share them with you guys!

film swap

Amidst all of the wedding hoopla, I never got around to posting my film swap photos!  This was the second year I took part in Rhianne’s Photoswap, where I sent an un-developed roll of film for my partner to develop, and I received their film in return.  I carried my trusty Diana mini camera around with me for months, and whenever I remembered I had it, I would try and snap a few photos. I am the absolute worst about setting the exposure and focus on the little plastic camera, so my rolls of film are always quite interesting…. this particular roll had some pictures from San Francisco, Paris, Munich, Strasbourg and lazy summer days here in the Black Forest and it brings back all the great memories of summer :)
