I’ve been looking at this blank space for a while now. It’s been empty the last couple of weeks – and it’s been empty in my head too. I don’t know how to fill this space. I don’t know how to start even though I’m aching to write again. I want to be an inspiration, share my thoughts and mind with you again.
It’s September 1st, summer is officially over, even the weather can agree on that. It’s windy, it’s cold and rainy. What I have learned is that time is always moving. We cannot stop it even though we want to capture a moment and stay in it. That is why you have to live in the moment. Don’t let it pass you, don’t feel the need to document or capture every other second on a picture. Sometimes it’s better to live and let go.
I was on my way home from the grocery store today when I began to think.. I was at the exact same place I went with my mum every Saturday from the age 10 till I became 14, if not 15 years old. We had these Saturday shopping trips where we drove to the next ‘big’ mall. We would window shop, or try out lots of clothes, where I ended up finding something and begged “pretty, pretty please” to my mum till she agreed to pay for the item(s) or loan me the money. After some hours of shopping we would sit down and have coffee, cake and lunch. I remembered that I always asked if I could have a sip of my mothers coffee from an early age. I would tell her my verdict and she’d agree. The last hour went to food shopping before we drove home.
That little memory made me think about all the other things that happened that never where planned. Because let’s be real, those are the happenings that are most exited and the ones you remember.
It’s funny how you’re life avowals & I can’t wait to find out what my life has planned for the next years to come.
Today I got spoiled with cake, gifts and food. Since we’re leaving tomorrow for Italy we had an early birthday celebration with the closest family. I really didn’t ask for anything other then a couple of things I order weeks beforehand from Amazon. But I did wish for a cake which I got and it was by far the best cake I’ve tasted in a long time. And it was no other then a NUTELLA cake, like seriously.. that there just needed caps lock cause I didn’t even know it was possible. But Oma did it so good but I couldn’t manage more then one piece.
We had dessert before dinner and after opening some presents we ate chicken and three well made salads.
In the evening I finally got to drive our rented car up to Hohenpeissenberg where we saw the most beautiful sunset on the way down. I’m totally in love with sunsets because it’s such a beautiful end to a day. And every sunset I see always gets more beautiful which is hard to believe is possible, because just look at this..
And of course the ‘Kicker’ had to find it’s way out from the garage so it could be played on a couple of times.
Now I’m almost done packing for tomorrow and I’m so tired I’m about to fall asleep so I’ll end it here.
Today was an all day trip from 1 o’clock till 9 which can confirm that I’m about to fall asleep any minute. My mother, uncle and his girlfriend and I all drove to Stanberger sea which approximate is a 45 minute drive. Like yesterday the weather didn’t agree with us and the sun hardly showed up. Optimistically as I am I went in a long dress with ballerinas. It’s save to say that my feet still are cold even now under my blanket. We stopped at a ‘Beergarten’ on the way home where I got to taste Mr. Hugo – my drink after 3 months. It wasn’t worth it but it did taste good.
We ended the day with dinner at a restaurant in Peiting where I had my favorite – Käsespätzle. Now we’re all back home and waiting for tomorrow, my early birthday celebration.
Oh, and sorry for the lack of photos. I do take my camera everywhere but today I forgot my memory card. It was waiting on me in my computer when I got home. It will be remembered tomorrow though.
Could life me any more perfect right this moment? It’s not even a question, cause it’s perfect. Everything has fallen into place and everything will only get better from here, I just know it. There’s nothing stopping me now and I’ve got 3 long and wonderful weeks of vacation ahead. All I have to do now is to get into the right holiday mood and dial back like a 100 times to vacation mode.
I couldn’t wish for anything better and it’s been a long time coming but the time is finally here. Tomorrow the only thing to do is to go through my bag again and see if I have everything and maybe do some last minute shopping. I can’t wait for Monday but I’ll miss my boo the next weeks so hopefully the time will go a little, but just a little bit fast so that I can see him again. Other then that everything is falling into place.
Good night beautiful world. Exhausted after a long summer working, my bed is waiting.
So I actually planned on a late workout outside this evening but the thought of sitting inside right now suits me very well. The fall breeze is already here and because I don’t have any good clothing for outside workouts, I think I have to sit this one out. Though I think I’m going to be planted in my seat in front of the screen the next hour or so. I have several last-minute planning to do before my vacation officially starts on Monday. And if you know me, you know that I like to have everything set and ready a good time before I leave. Like I’ve mention before, my luggage is already packet, only a few more details left. Two more days at work and then I have a 3 week-long vacation ahead of me. Oh, I can’t wait for Friday to come any sooner.
I’ve packed and flown so many times before but every time I think about things I might have forgotten, so I think I’m going to make a list over things I’m taking so that nothing goes missing. Tomorrow I’ve got an appointment to fix my nails and on Monday a little last-minute pampering on the agenda. Hopefully the weather will agree with us on our holiday cause my luggage is packet with dresses and short shorts. We’ll see.. *crossing my finger*.
Now I’m off, my bed is calling me soon.

I’m so tired I didn’t even come up with a title.. what I should be doing is probably be in bed already since I’ve slept way to little this week, maybe even the whole month, but instead I made myself a cup of coffee. I still got some episodes to catch up to so there is no way I’m going to sleep at 22.00. And now I’m going to be brutally honest and say that I don’t remember why I even started writing this post. Sorry. Must be too late already or am I just getting old really fast..? Don’t answer that.
It was nice catching up again and I’ll be back when I have something interesting going on in my life.
It’s safe to say that I have a shopping problem, and more ironically, I don’t have any more hangers for my clothes. So why do I keep buying new clothes? It’s like a never-ending evil circle. Why can’t I just save my money for practical things like saving for a house, a car, an education or that really cute jacket I found today. Anyway, I have a problem. I even promised myself that I would only shop on sale. Ha, who was I kidding?! I need a cleans. Next month. I promise.
