our little {married} hometown

Basel, Switzerland.

Our little {married} hometown.
I love it.
truth be told, i don’t want to leave here come fall.
thank goodness it is the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!
For now I am soaking up every drop of the suisse life.
{leyendeker shirt, gap trouser jeans, asos wedges, michael kors watch, f21 belt}
always a good day when you catch the “i love you” tram in basel.
they were shorter back then.  in 1438!
 in Basel next to or above the doors it always tells how old the building is.  
hydrangeas make me happy!

XoXo, ST

:::congrats to Diana @ New York State of Mind, you won your print of choice from Christine’s collection of beautiful photos!   :::

    Such pretty photos. Seeing all the pretty things that you experience every day makes me want to pack my bags and head to Europe.. like tomorrow. And hydrangeas are my favorite so that last picture made me happy.

    I'll always have a weak spot for hydrangeas.


    We had them outside my window back in Texas, and it was the best way to start my day: look out the window and see gorgeous hydrangeas.

    Not. Too. Bad.

    What a beautiful town!!! And hydrangeas make me happy too (except when you plant them and they start to brown because it is ridiculously humid…tear- I'll just have to continue to look at your picture:)

    what a gorgeous place to live! I'd wake up super happy everyday I think!! When I traveled to England I loved all the small doors everywhere. I'm 5'10" so I didn't fit through most of them. I have a ton of pics of me crammed into little doors. 🙂

    Sarah, you are just redonkulously gorgeous. That first picture is stunning, and I'm a little obsessed with your shirt.

    You are livin' the dream, my dear! 🙂

    PS – Last night I had a dream we met in real life. I know it's a little weird that I dreamt about you, but I think it's because I posted about you winning the giveaway shortly before bed last night. Anyway, it was a good dream, and I hope it comes true one day. 🙂
