A Garden Wedding!

The beautiful wedding cake – with the names of the bride, the groom & their little daughter! All pics by Franzi.

Now we are definitely in the midst of this year’s wedding season! On Saturday Stephan and me were in Hesse at the beautiful garden wedding of his second cousin Simone and her groom Olli. It was such a wonderful feast with lots of inspirational ideas. Here are some impressions…

I wish you a wonderful fresh week! Have a lovely one!

I loved the table decoration: Collectors cups and saucers & wild flowers.

A candy bar!!!

In the night they lit a fire – and smoked salmon, which was later served as midnight dinner!

Spring Activities!

Pic by Franzi.

Those last few days were incredible sunny in Hamburg! I love the clear blue sky above my head as well as the intensive warmth of the bright spring-sun on my skin. The singing of the birds, the bloomy smell in the air. (Oh, and hello hay-fever… Nobody missed YOU.)
What do you plan to do during this new season? Here comes my list with ideas to enjoy springtime even a bit more:

Go to the farmers market and buy a fresh bouquet of flowers for your flat.

Create your own herb garden by planting basil, thyme and parsley on your windowsill.

Make a stroll through your city and get to know the old streets new (we love to walk through Hamburg using this guide).

Make plans for you summer vacations.

Eat more colorful salads.

Have the first BBQ this year.

Make your bicycle fit for the new season.

Take out your spring & summer wardrobe and store away all those thick sweaters, coats and heavy boots.

Create your personal spring playlist 2017 on Spotify and listen to it in the morning while enjoying your first cup of coffee.

(Re-) start a new or old sport. Running, anybody?

Eat ice-cream!

I wish you a wonderful spring week! Enjoy the sun and all those crazy-happy feelings coming with it :)!

I wish you a wonderful fresh start into the new week! Start growing you tomatoes NOW!

Open-Air Activities!

Let’s start singing now: ‘Come on baby have some fun, dancing in the morning sun…’. It’s time to start the summer dreaming! And what do you do during summer time? – Spending as much time as is possible outside! Thinking about it, I realize there is an enormous number of open-air activities possible and wrote down this (short) inspiration list as motivator for the next hot weeks. What will you do first? Going to the zoo? Eat ice-cream? Or maybe play a round of Kubb with your pals in the park? Hmm, I think I will start with the ice-cream part…

I wish you all a sunny open-air week!

Groups & Clubs!

Picture Credit

Are you a member of a club or of a group of friends who regularly meet each other to follow a mutual interest? I was always a big fan of clubs. During my adolescence I founded an environment as well as a detective club :). And until today,  I can’t decide for only one group/club – currently I’m a member of four  (no sports group included). It’s simply the best way to follow your interests, to share experiences or to improve your skills. And there are a lot of possibilities and ideas for clubs. Mmmh, maybe I should found one more?! Here comes my Top 10 of club and group ideas:

Book Club …Journal Club, Novel Club, Poetry Club, Non-Fiction Club.

Cooking/Baking Group …Perfect Dinner, Motto Dinner, Breakfast Club, BBQ Club (Yes, the whole year long!).

Movie/TV Series Club …The best idea I heard so far: Look what food is presented during the current episode and bring this food to watch the next one.

Handicraft Club …Knitting, DIYs, sewing.

Music Club …Sing or make a jam session together!

Game Club …skat, doppelkopf, chess, board games.

Regulars’ Table …Meet once a month and go somewhere in your city, no one of your group was ever before.

Gardening …Either share an allotment garden or look what the next gardening projects on your balconies/in your gardens are, then circle from one balcony to the next.

Language Club …Regulars’ table with mixed nations or with people who want to train/speak one specific language. Or a tandem.

Sports Club …Look out for jogging partners, people who would like to play  regularly beach volleyball/billiards/bowling/hiking/cycling.
