We never had a honeymoon. Not a real one, at least. We spent a few nights in Boston after our wedding last year as a “mini-moon” but it was way too short and sadly, we had a pretty horrible experience at the 5-star hotel we stayed at. After the wedding, there was Christmas and then we moved to Berlin and somehow time just got away from us. As this year we are spending over a month in the US with two more weeks at Christmas (woo hoo!), Andreas’s vacation time is pretty much already tapped out for the year. Now we are coming up on our one year anniversary and I decided that instead of taking one long fabulous honeymoon, instead maybe we could take one real vacation every year to celebrate our anniversary for the next few years. A vacation where we do a whole lot of nothing and just relax on the beach or by a pool and enjoy our time together. Most of our traveling lately is for work or to go home to the US, which is always great, but never very relaxing.
So, lovely blog friends, if you had 5 days to go anywhere a short flight away from Berlin, where would you go? I would love to swim, so a pool or beach are necessary and I want to go somewhere new and preferably off the beaten path (meaning without swarms of tourists). Any tips for us, or places you yourself are dying to visit?
These photos are from our last real beach vacation in Sardinia, which was a lovely little getaway- We rented a scooter, found some hidden beaches and our ghost-esque German skin got WAY too much sun.
Today, my brother will marry his long time love, Katie. I have considered her my sister for years already, but I feel so blessed to be here in Santa Barbara to celebrate with them as they finally make it official. Katie makes Brooks so unbelievably happy, and surely that joy will only continue to blossom as they continue to grow together. Congratulations to my dear brother and my new sister, I love you both so much!
Cruising pinterest the other day, I literally squealed when I saw the top right image. “Is she wearing polka dots on her wedding day?!?!?!?” (I really wanted to, but then that Monique Lhullier magically fell into my lap and I couldn’t say no, so I instead I rocked the polka dots to our wedding clambake) After a second click I realized that homegirl was wearing the Valentino dress I had lusted after for a greater part of last year, and while they are technically not polka dots, they look that way from a distance. SO chic and unique, and the rest of their Italian celebration looks equally as fabulous, check it out here.
