easter at the coast – what a trip

Like last year we spent the Easter weekend with my boyfriends family near Dangast. That’s at the coast of the North Sea. The road trip on Friday was horrible. Instead of four hours straight driving, we needed seven. Everyone seemed to be driving the same route as we did. Even on the secondary line we got into traffic jam. More than that bad weather was hunting us the whole time.

But when we finally made it to the coast, it was more than beautiful. The weather got better with every hour, we found the best restaurant in a long time and had a great time with his family. We went to the Easter fire some of the neighbors organized, drank cocktails with his brother and wife and made two bike trips. And even the road trip back, was much more relaxed. So in the end it was a wonderful family weekend with so much sun and fun.

We found the little barrow at a flea market, original yellow and red. Like my barrow, I used to have as a child. I had the best time then driving the neighbors cat in it around the garden. You can see “Mohrchen” here. So, when I saw the barrow on the flea market, I just knew I had to give it to one of our godchildren. We sanded the barrow down and painted it in the colors pink and cream, because they fit much more the little girl, who got it now. Still have to smile, when I see the photo.

hope you had a relaxed and wonderful weekend too

spring in Berlin

spring in Berlin 2014 | momentstolivefor.com

I didn’t thought, that spring in Berlin would look so lovely. Everywhere are little islands of green, spotted with yellow, white and blue. I cross more animals more closely than ever before, like a bunch of starlings and rabbits.

Even more fascinating are the people of Berlin. Just two, three rays of sunshine and all Berlin seems to be up and running. But who is judging them, after this long weeks of grey and dark winter days. Not me. I’m one of them. I enjoy every bit of sunshine I can get and soak it in.
