the little things

I've been feeling like I spend a whole lot of time in front of this computer- which at times can be good, but for the most part when I say that, it's not necessarily good. So I think these little things end up at times meaning a lot. Refelctions. It was a beautiful day on Saturday. The sun shone brightly on the windows of the old buildings on my street. They loved it, and they shared it with the windows across from them, making strange shapes of brightness that peeked into people's apartments.

The Honeymoon

I guess I will be going a little backwards as far as the series of events, but this blogging thing is a little new to me. Markus and I came back from a magical wedding in Minneapolis, hung out in Stuttgart for a couple of days, then rented a car and headed down to Cinque Terra. These are 5 villages that are on the Italian Riviera. Very beautiful. Also very touristy, but we were able to sneak around the excess of Americans and find some Italians there, and some peace and quiet. Lots of relaxing and hanging out on the beach. Just what we needed. We also did a little drawing, and lots of photos. Here are some kind of psychedelic photos I took of some ducks plus a great photos of my husband.

My sister Tammy is here visiting for Markus and my German wedding celebration. The day she flew in I took her to Cannstatter Wasen- the Volksfest. Tammy described it as "The County Fair on Crack." I think she's right.

This is my first blog...actually, it could be my second blog because I think that I already tried to start one before...just one more thing for me to spend even more time in front of the computer...hmmm. Either way, it sounds fun to be able to post some photos here. So I'll start with what is on every European's mind (although I'm not technically a European)- and that's FUSSBALL. German lost the other night and these Germans were certainly disappointed, but tomorrow Germany plays for 3rd place here in Stuttgart- not far from where I live

This photo is from when Germany won- and the one at night is the sad night and the Polizei were on the look out. We'll see what happens tomorrow night, and we'll see how many Germans make their way to Stuttgart.
