Suisse Saturday

Truth be told i've been in a little funk.
post vacation blues along with the fact that reality is going to strike soon.
i had my once every six month cry-a-thon which was therapeutic.
While I cry JB tries to make me laugh, and it works, but then i go back to crying, 
which causes us both to laugh.  
it's so cute.  i tell you what.  
ok so it's actually not cute.  I look like a total freak show when i cry.  
Anyway, the funk was short lived.  thank goodness.
I do know in my heart that fear is the opposite of faith.      
The future is bright - wherever we end up. 
(:
Today we went to the flea market and then down to markplatz to buy some produce. 
 i love old things and fresh veggies.  what an odd combo.  
{steve madden boots, j.crew riding leggings, f21 knit top, old navy sweater, flea market riding helmet}
two in love bikes (:

bratwurst!
put this on the list of things i wish i would have bought.

there's that mint vespa again ... love finding her.
we stopped in for JB's fave beer - Leffe Dark
i love this guy/ the fifth beatle. 

Hope you're all having a lovely Saturday!
Just you wait for monday - something sooo fab is going to be given away - maybe it'll be to you! (:

  10. i still love everything about your travels :)
    don't be sad--i know it's tough not to. C and i wish we were back in Chicago every day of our lives. but i always have to remind ourselves that: life is the longest thing you'll ever endure during your human existence. therefore, we've got nothing but time... :)

  11. Hope you feel better. I loathe funks but sometimes it's just what you need to get to the next place. And I believe that one could always use a good cry!

  12. Thank you for posting so many gorgeous photographs - I am definitely living vicariously through you right now! I love how you're wearing a riding helmet on your bicycle. That's just too cute! Enjoy the rest of your travels!

  14. No, I don't think these kind of cry-sessions are freaky! On the opposite! I know exactly how those moments are, I have once in a while too, but instead my boyfriend I have my mother to give me support and make me laugh. It's really good to let out those negative feelings once in a while.


    PS! Those Coratia pictures are just AWESOME! I never thought Croatia is so beautiful!

    PS!PS! I love the way you write, really easy and interesting to read.

    Sending you sun from Rome,

  19. once again, beautiful pictures/people and THE FOOD!

    No idea how you stay so thin around all that cheese and bread. I would be up 50 pounds at least.

    LOVE the bikes in love and the 5th Beatle :)

  25. well you just made my day you sweet thing! i had a crying fit last night, channeling you, and my boyfriend, channeling your sweet hubby it sounds like, tried his hardest to make me giggle through the tears. lo and behold, it worked! i think we are kindred spirits:)

  26. I totally take part in the occasional cry-a-thon although my husband has a variety of responses... sometimes he tries to make me laugh, sometimes he tries to console me, and sometimes he just stares at me like I'm nuts (and sometimes I am!)
