I Liebe Bavaria

Christmas has finally arrived. With my brief visit to Germany it finally feels as though it is December and I am flinging myself with reckless abandon into the yuletide cheer. I am already eating my way through the traditional seasonal sweets and only some advisement from friends made me resist wearing my red knit cap with my green jacket--though truly, it is only a matter of time before this occurs.
I dressed basically forming all outfits around the one pair of black boots and one green jacket I took with me for the weekend. If I were to offer any suggestions on packing light it would be to take a few distinctive pieces, but keep a basic color palette so that everything mixes and matches.
Really though, this weekend was much more about the food. Which was devoured in abundance. I had the wonderful honor of staying with a family and eating some delicious, home-baked meals.

  6. I was worrying about you when I was listening to morning news while driving. It's like ..I know so many people all over the world and things are happening all over the place. Worry.. worry. Keep safe.

    btw I always love the shots of roofs in Europe. They are utterly beautiful.
