picnics, boat rides, and museum visits on the rhine riviera



Yesterday after a picnic lunch on the Rhine we hopped aboard one of those boats I'm forever photographing, then we went to the Tingluey Museum.  I liked yesterday, a lot- a lot.

{michael kors watch, anthro bangles, h&m beaded bracelets, and grandmothers bangle}

fox or dog?  pacing the rhine riviera. 
at the museum
quack. 

...

I've been reading so much.  Just finished the newest francine rivers saga.
I cry about thirty times a day while reading.
happy tears mostly but also my heart strings just get pulled tight.
random sobs, squeels, tears streaming  ... it's a little upsetting to jb. haha
in his defense, when we were registering me a few days ago, i started bursting with tears in the waiting room.
Swiss people are confused by my heart that is located perpetually on my sleeve.  
This is about the time JB tries to take the kindle away.  
which is obviously not OK.  
don't get in between me in my books husband.
it can't end pretty.  


PS: shameless self promotion ahead.

  1. aw. I love Francine Rivers. I am sure you know that by now because I feel like I have written I LOVE FRANCINE RIVERS one too many times. ha ha. DO you like the kindle?? I have really thought about getting an EREADER. I know they are efficient and small and that excites me. But I am in debt so maybe I should just hold back and stick to paper.

    But seriously I spent forty something dollars the last time I bought books and I will definitely be buying again soon... That is seriously about 1/4 the price of an ereader WASTED on real paper books.... I think it would be a wise investment.

    Okay I am done. Love your blog girl!
