Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was the perfect example of why we chose to move to Munich.  Through all the tough adjustments and stressful decisions we are finally at a point where the loose ends are tied up and we are enjoying our stay. It is a definite slow down from our past fast paced life style and we are loooooving it!

Saturday, Husband and I headed to a festival called Auer Dult.  The festival first started in 1905 and is considered Europe's largest market for kitchen goods.  It is located on Mariehilfeplatz right on the grounds of a catholic church.  One half of the platz is lined with rows and rows of antiques, pottery, kitchen tools and gadgets.  The other side of Mariehilfeplatz was a fair ground with tons of rides, a ferris wheel, and food stands with delicious smells filling the air.

Mariehilfe                                          Finally found my name!

After Auer Dult, Husband and I randomly found a cute coffee cafe near the university. The place had a lovely vintage feel.  My favorite part were the menus that all had been taped inside old German chapter books. Enjoying a cup of coffee, in the beautiful spring weather, with a great atmosphere is always a relaxing time.

Sunday, I convinced my homebody of a husband to take a picnic to Stanburg See.  Despite the overcast cooler weather, we had a wonderful time walking the trails.  Shelby even ran straight into the lake in true lab fashion!  I think I could have sat for hours staring out at sailboats crossing the water.  It was a nice change of scenery from the usual busy city of Munich. 

In love with Starnburg See!               Shelby Sunday Fishing

Husband and I also finally started getting our patio ready for the nice spring weather that has arrived.  We planted a few new flowers and hope to start a tomato plant or two.  It looks like we also will be getting rid of our current patio table and chairs as it is too large for the space.  There is not an unawkward way to take a seat.  Although, it is hard to give up entertaining with table settings, we have decided to try a more casual lounge set instead.  We feel it will suit the space better.  More updates to come later!
The Before, Ready for a redo!

Enjoying Spring,
