What I´m reading
Romance, friendship, Italy, self discovery…I’m loving it so far!
What I’m Writing
I currently should be working on ALWAYS SECOND BEST and I will…especially since I’ve just added it on Goodreads
(publication should be end of October), but a SNI grabbed my attention for the past two days, a NA thriller (which includes community college, stalking, romance, a blog called The Flying Piggy Insider, a dual POV…)
What else I´ve been up to
Enjoying the beach.
During a night river cruise, we came across this fella…
Reading on the beach…
Coconuts on the side of the road…
What inspires me right now
The amount of love I’ve received for my cover reveal (you can still enter the giveaway :-))
Seriously, I was tearing up yesterday reading all your comments, and the tweets, RT…
I’m so GRATEFUL!!!
I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂
As you know I was in Hamburg two weeks ago…time flies…And it was the perfect opportunity to take a bunch of pictures.
Here’s a selection.
Hope you’re having a great Monday! How was your weekend?
The Chemical Engineer and I came back from 10 days in Maryland yesterday. As always when we go there, time flies and at the same time doesn´t move.
Maryland is one of those places we called home. We lived there for about 6/7 years and we built a life there during that time. We have people we consider family, and a lot of close friends. We have habits, places we like to go to and a lot of memories.
Yes, when leaving, I may always shed a tear. Leaving is tough, no matter if I leave France, the US or Germany. It´s never easy. But at the end of the day, we´re lucky to have so many wonderful people in our life…I can see my dear hubby rolling his eyes – but I know he feels the same. (stop rolling your eyes!)
So we had a great time…
We celebrated birthdays.
Someone turned 18.
We had issues with the P…:P
Someone turned 50.
We met with wonderful friends.
We spent time with people we consider family.
We celebrated honorary degrees and graduations.
We cuddled with this cutie. Or I did. The Chemical Engineer won´t admit to it.
We had brunch.
We ate a lot.
We laughed a lot.
We (I) spent a lot of time at Barnes & Noble.
Some of the books I bought…
We took trips down memory lane.
We created new memories…
Until next time.
During our road trip, I took about 1600 pictures. Yep. 1600. I didn´t think anybody (except me and maybe the hubby) would go through that many pictures so here is a selection of my favorite honeymoon pictures (only 42 :D)
So, tell me, where did you go (or would like to go to) for your honeymoon?
Our honeymoon/road trip included something my hubby really wanted: A convertible Mustang…and gosh he had a very hard time saying goodbye to the car as we dropped it off in NYC. We saw so many beautiful things in this car…
Hmm for some reason, I don´t have any pictures of my hair after a ride with the top down…but let me tell you: it was WILD 😀
So tell me, if you could drive anything during a road trip, what would it be?
Food. I love it. All types of food. Really. And Chemical Engineer feels the same way. So on our road trip/honeymoon, we knew there would be lots of eating and lots of different type of food (homemade by our dear friends, fast food on the road and restaurants in the towns we stayed at…).
And…we were not disappointed 😀
My favorite fast food restaurant was WAFFLE HOUSE.
I miss it here in Germany, really, their Texas Melt is just too yummy 😀
When it comes to restaurants, well while we loved all restaurants we went to, Delmenico´s in NYC stood out. This steakhouse had everything: a NYC history (it´s considered a “classic”), an interesting atmosphere (including some people celebrating a birthday, students, a basketball player and Wall Street bankers), a funny waiter and great great great food!
The restaurant (2)
Yummy filet mignon
Those potatoes…I have no words
THE dessert 🙂
So tell me, what is your favorite food while on the road?
