i’m back

our vacation 2013 - Vienna by momentstolivefor

I’m back. Back from my big vacation. My boyfriend and I made a roadtrip and drove more than 2500 km through four European countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic. We started in Berlin and rode to Munich, Vienna and Prague. And if these three wouldn’t have been enough, we visited the Chiemsee, the Postalm (a mountain pasture up to 1500 m high) in the Alps, the Neusiedler Lake and Bratislava inbetween too. We stayed 3-4 days in the three big cities, before we drove to the next and one night at the Neusiedler Lake, to calm down a little bit after those busy cities.

Although the weather wasn’t anywhere near perfect, we enjoyed our trip and everything we saw. And we saw a lot! Too much to be counted or mentioned here. These were exhausting, but nonetheless amazing two weeks. I’m still trying to handle all these impressions in my head…

Now I’m back to posting regularly, with new content, new DIYs and a lot of photos from our trip. It was a fun time, however I’m glad to be back home and back to crafting.

hope you had a wonderful summer vacation too

a little break

Like last year, I will be participating in Susannah Conway‘s project “The August Break 2013“. This means for the entire August I won’t be blogging the usual way, but maybe posting some photos from my life. But don’t worry, I will be back in September with new inspirational content.

This year I need this break more than anything. There is so much going on in my life right now, that I don’t know where to begin and where this will end. Foremost I apply for a new job in Berlin, because I want to follow my boyfriend, who’s there since March. Our long-distance relationship is exhausting for both of us and we just want to live our lives together, everyday, not just on the weekends. Maybe you can relate, how great it is to see your partner every day and really share a life together and if it’s just the little things like cleaning the dishes together and cuddling in the morning in bed, still not fully awake. I’m so longing for it.

But aside from that, I’m planning on giving this blog a new home (it’s own domain) and a redesign. I think it’s time, since my visitor numbers are going through the roof. Thank you so much for following me and my creative adventures!  I’ll be back.

wish you all a wonderful, amazing and fun August. enjoy summer.

i heart Bremen

The first two pics show Bremen – the marketplace with its typical Saturday tourists and the lake near the university of Bremen. I really love Bremen, because it has a special style with its historical buildings and flair, its streets full of students and tourists and its lovely places along the Weser river, where you can just sit and relax.

The third photo I shot this morning on my way to the office. I was an hour earlier than usual, but was rewarded with this beautiful sunrise. Only two days to go, till I turn 30, yikes! I must confess, I feel a little nervous. What about you? How do you feel, when a big birthday is drawing near?

busy weekend

Although I had plenty of things to do this weekend, I found the time to take a few pics and made a little pause on my biketour from Bremen back home. And before you ask: yes, the cake was delicious 😉

Wish you all a wonderful start into the new week
