How I Feel In 5 Words.

How are You?

How are you this week? How has your week been so far?
I know I have been really absent from this place. Life has been super busy lately. Work and family keep me going. Taking care of our home and making sure everything runs smoothly when you're a working mom can be somewhat of a challenge, leaving little time for other activities. It's important for me to spend quality time with my peeps whenever I get the chance, so this little space of mine has to be put on the backburner every now and then.

But, I am still here and this is how I am today:

1. Tired.

2. Frizzy (it's so humid here in southern Germany)

3. Content.

4. Exctited.

5. Hopeful.

Now it's your turn - how are you? I would love to hear!

How I Feel In 5 Words.

How are you?

I haven't been online a lot in the past few days. What can I say. Life happened. Sometimes it just swipes you off your feet and then you need some time to regroup. Nothing bad happened. Sometimes things just get a little too overwhelming and then I allow myself some time away from the blog. It can feel good to let go of the pressure of having to be present. But that doesn't mean I don't think about the blog or you guys. Not at all! I think about you and my blog all the time. But I learned to let go of a bad conscience. We all deserve taking the time we need for the things we need to take care of. Right?

So, long story short, here's how I am feeling today:

1. Busy.

2. Exhausted.

3. Tired.

4. Vacation ready.

5. Sanguine.

Ok, now you…How has life been treating you lately? How are you?

Green is for GOOD LUCK.

Good Luck

Good Luck by chrissyza 

Aren't these different shades of green so pretty. I have a soft spot for green. Maybe because it's my dad's favorite color. You know because of the "GOOD LUCK" part. Whenever we played board games when I was a kid and we had to pick a color, he would always pick green. I love how fresh and clean green feels.

Somehow I got carried away putting this collage together and there is no real theme to it other than my love for the color. I simply enjoy strolling through Polyvore getting inspired by all the beautiful sets. Are you on Polyvore? Come follow me and leave your profile link while you're here!

Hope your week is nothing but wonderful so far! What is your favorite color?

P.S. I also love anything teal and mint. Just saying.

How are you? How has your week been so far? It's been really hot here since Sunday. Summer seems to have finally decided to stay and let me tell you, it's been hot as hell. Especially at work. We don't have air-conditioning in our office - it was a hot mess.

But, no complaining, I am loving the warm temps. Now we can hit the pool, go on long evening walks with the pup and enjoy our patio. Finally.

So, here's how I am feeling today:

1. Hot.

2. Happy.

3. Exhausted.

4. In Good Humor
5. Positive.
Now it's your turn - HOW ARE YOU?

Looking back | May 2016

A Recap of our May 2016
May was a really fun month. We celebrated 2 birthdays, Leonie's was on the 8th and Stefan's birthday on the 29th. The weather finally decided to let more sunshine and warmer temps into our lives (until the rain came back). We had sushi for lunch a couple of times, discovered new Milka chocolate flavors and got new bikes for all of us.

I was able to get my green thumb going - at last. Stefan and I both took a week off while Leonie had a 2 week break from school. Our kitty and our pup enjoyed having us all at home which resulted in tons of kitty cuddles and long evening walks with Kyra. 

We went on ice cream dates, saw "Alice through the Looking Glass" on opening day, squeezed in some retail therapy after having to cancel our Berlin trip due to inclement weather. We endured a couple of thunderstorms with massive rainfalls and were really lucky. Some towns or villages, like Braunsbach, in this area got hit by way too much water way too fast and are now literally trying to rebuild their lives.

All in all though May treated us really well and we are now ready for summer. Trying to plan our vacation and all the other activities we'd like to do during summer break. I really hope we can make a trip to Berlin and Amsterdam sometime in the next few weeks and that we will be able to take a dip into the community pool very often this summer.

How was your May and what are your plans for the summer? Are you going to travel?

How I Feel In 5 Words.
Weird how time flies - all of the sudden it's Wednesday again. It's been good back at work. A lot to do, but in a good way. It also feels good re-connecting with co-workers. I just love the socializing part about work. And although I was only gone for a week, a lot had piled up. But I am back on track and up to date and that makes me feel rather good about myself.

Today I feel:

1. Accomplished.

2. Relaxed.

3. Needed.

4. Appreciated.

5. Excited.

How has your week been so far and how are you today?
