Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
In true Monday fashion, I’ll be recapping my weekend for you today! This weekend was exciting because Matthias and I went to a nearby city for my first time. I’ll be linking up with Erin for Weekend Snapshots and Katie for Marvelous in my Monday. Now let’s get to it!
Friday started out as normal. We woke up, got ready and headed to get our weekly groceries. On our way, we stopped at the cutest little farmer’s market because I was on the hunt for spaghetti squash. I wasn’t able to find any, but I was still in a really good mood. It was a beautiful day out, this place was absolutely adorable, and I was getting to spend the entire day with Matthias!After picking up our groceries, we headed home to drop them off before hitting the road again. We were on our way to Lübeck! One thing I have been loving about being here, is seeing all of the old buildings and architecture. This city did not disappoint in these two things! We walked towards the center of the city first. Stopping every so often so I could take pictures and marvel at the buildings. There were so many churches that dated back a long time. We saw some that too over 100 years to be built! Matthias and I talked about we’re both curious how people would have built the buildings back in the 1400’s when they didn’t have the equipment that we have today. I enjoyed looking up the narrow streets as we walked by them. Seeing the buildings curve with the street was really neat.We walked through The Holsten Gate near the end of our time in Lübeck. This gate marks the western boundary of the old center of Lübeck. Matthias will say I liked Lübeck because I finally found a spaghetti squash at a little street market while we were there, but I would have loved it even if I hadn’t of found it. This city was really beautiful, spaghetti squash or not.
The rest of the weekend was pretty relaxing. Saturday we made homemade pizza and garlic fingers that we ate while watching Star Wars. We made our own dough that turned out really well! It’s my first time watching Star Wars and so far I’m liking it. Matthias is making sure I watch them all.Sunday morning I woke up actually wanting to workout so I decided to do back and triceps. It felt nice having that drive back! The rest of the day was spent relaxing and watching hockey in the evening.
It was a great weekend! Have a great Monday everyone!
