In the real world...

Afternoon off…

After the whole Brazil fiasco, I’ve decided to take the afternoon to go to a nearby village, Dreieichenhain for an ice cream to cheer me up. The last few days have been insane trying to get ready and frankly I’m just exhausted. Still though there is a lot of work to do, as I’m trying to get the new Independent Fashion Bloggers site running, and I have some stuff for the shoppe which will probably go up tomorrow.

It’s amazing how there are all these little pockets of wheat fields and a 12th century village and castle just a ten minute bicycle ride through the forest. I’ve never imagined a life like this, as if you’ve ever been to a Southern Californian suburb, well, it’s a different world.

  3. Sorry to hear that Brasil didn’t work out. What made you move to Germany, Jennine? (When I started reading your blog you were just planning to move there and I can’t remember if you spoke about what motivated that move…) It’s such a beautiful place to live.

  9. So sorry about the Brazil thing! That’s a shame, but I’m sure on some level it was meant to be! At least you have gorgeous German villages filled with wheat fields and ice cream to cheer you up! You’ve been looking absolutely amazing, by the way.

  10. It looks fantastic-such blue skies and good weather I’m assuming from your bare arms.

    This was something I always loved about Europe. That unlike here, taking off from the city doesn’t mean either 1) absolute wilderness or 2) soul sucking suburbs. Every village I visited in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic was like something out of a story book. Just wonderfully unreal.
