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 (:

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! (:

    That is such a great market! I wish we had something like that here.

    And Leffe Brune is my favorite beer after Guinness! I love stouts and dark beers.

    i have been in a sad funk too. i totally agree though that fear is in total opposition of faith. if only we could be fearless all the time!

    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… 🙂

    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!

    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!

    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,

    I'm sorry you were in a funk… I get in those sometimes, too. The market looks awesome, though! I wish I would have gone with you (: That chandelier is amazing…and the tea cup is, too! Adore.

    I know how you feel! I've been in a funk all summer and can't pinpoint the reason why! Thankfully you have a good man who will help you laugh through it!

    Love the pictures! I can't wait to travel with my hubby!

    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 🙂

    I'm glad that your funk was short-lived. We all go through it. Sometimes you just need to release it through tears and then you feel so much better! 🙂

    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!)
