Central Park

Experiencing new places is like nothing else. I feel uncertain, trying to grasp where things are directionally, while enjoying the new sights and smells. One gets a heightened sensitivity to things. Buildings, plants, and people look different. The first day is usually the one where I notice all the differences to home. Our journey began in NYC which was  a great transition stop for us from our home in Europe. It was easy to get around on public transport, a big city, lots of variety in food, cultures, and activities. 

While traveling I've noticed the importance of versatile clothing. This year, I have found the most perfect, summer, travel dress. It's light weight, flowy, and chic. It can easily be dressed up or down. I could wear it to a wedding or to the park. It's wrinkly out of the suitcase but that's just the life of a low budget traveler.

The trip has been a delight so far.

To follow as we travel, in real time follow me

Have a great beginning to august!



It's been snowing!
In Heidelberg it doesn't snow much but the past few days it has been snowing on and off, consistently.  Nothing is really sticking, but it is gorgeous as it falls.

Dominik snapped these pictures of my old man sweater outfit on our way to a restaurant.  This weekend we went on a brunch date because we couldn't squeeze an evening date during the week.  As I always say, date night is one of our/my main priorities.

Though it is such a priority, it is hard to keep it that way sometimes.  It is easy to overlook its importance.  If I don't get my date time, I don't feel close to Dominik.  Which then effects many other things...

 I assume it will get harder and harder to keep it a priority.  Especially once kids come.  But that's why I really want to keep it a part of our habit and keep it #1 in planning the week.

Thanks for reading lovelies.

Are you sick of me taking about how important date night is?  I think I have probably mentioned it once a week.

It's Fall

I can't deny it.  It is fall.  The leaves are turning.  Many of my wild flowers are finally blooming and I want to stay at home all snuggled up more than ever!

I will miss the flowers in my garden when winter arrives.  But until then I will delight in this beautiful brisk autumn season.

Gardening Outfit
 One thing I love most about spring is our green garden!!!!

Outfit details: Sweatshirt: Thrifted, Dress: too old to remember, Thailand market somewhere.

It's a lot of work to watch out for and water the plants but I have a feeling we will have some tasty fresh treats pretty soon. 

Do you grow anything at your home?

Casual Saturday
This would be a typical day outfit for me on a weekend.  After a late breakfast with my Love, without, makeup and not having glanced in a mirror.  Pretty good huh?

It has taken a lot of healing and telling truth to my self to come to this place of contentment and delight in my own appearance.  

Of course I would have loved to Photoshop some of my imperfections out of these images, however what is perfect anyways?  I am perfect.  I was created beautifully.  Just like you.

Thanks for reading.


Do you ever look in the mirror and think "Hey, not so bad!" or "I'm beautiful." ?
Well, I sure hope so.  (if you don't, it takes time for the truth to takeover the lies.)
