at the bicycle flea market where we bought andreas a new (old) bicycle, so I now have a biking buddy! I know am definitely more excited than he is :)

I look crazed here, but i love the mans stink eye behind me.

he’s mine. and i couldn’t be more thankful. I feel like the luckiest girl alive.

The weekend was everything I needed and more after what seemed like the never ending work week. Saturday was spent at farmer’s market, a flea market on a lake, a bicycle flea market and an afternoon in Strasbourg with a picnic riverside enjoying the first real warm weekend we have had this year.

Today was amazing- I finally finished the website I have been working on for the last few months for a client which lifted a huge weight off me, thank goodness. Then I was the lone female on a boys day out in Freiburg lunching in a biergarten and going to a soccer game. I enjoy watching soccer and love the excitement of the fans- especially when they don’t agree with the ref and scream and boo and make your ears bleed. Seeing fans so angry, I cant help but laugh watching them scream at the field. It was definitely a spirited crowd, and I think we were pretty much the only ones who were not decked out in freiburg team gear (not really my style), they won and I caught a bit of the team spirit :)

Now I am a very tired little ashley, off to dreamland with a full heart and a big smile.
