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!
