Postcards from...

Whew!.... happy Tuesday everyone!  My girls and I are back from Spring Break following a whirlwind road trip to meet up with my husband's Aunt & Uncle visiting from the States.  [Fair warning.... you might want to skip this week's posts if you don't want to be photo-blitzed with vacation photos featuring us still sporting Winter coats throughout Europe].

Our first stop took us to Heidelberg Germany where I had my first taste of speed-limit freedom on the German autobahn..... and, I must say, I quite liked it (even in an SUV with a luggage rack on top). :)
Our hosts took us to two spectacular historic Schlosses (Castles)..... the Schwetzingen and the Heidelberg Castle where I was enamored once again with what I like to call "precision pruning"; beautiful architecture..... and sheer ingenuity...... like that of a dance floor built atop that "ginormous" wine barrel...... seems like a crazy dangerous good idea, no?

Next stop.... Amsterdam.


  1. Very cool! This has been a long, harsh winter all over Europe. I think things are warming up this week and next. We are headed to Amsterdam too, the last week of April, to hopefully see Tulips. Winter. Blah.

  2. Forgot to mention - making a heart holding hands with daughters in the archway, so very sweet. =)

  3. You are really taking advantage of all the sights and I am so thrilled for the memories you are making for your family. Beautiful postcards, and beautiful family!
