It was getting to me. The busyness, that is. Every now and again it does, and believe me, it takes a fair and generous portion of crazy preceding the 'I-want-to-tear-my-hair-out' stage. So before the sinister enemy gets to me, I usually do one of four things to stay on top of the game. I sing. I eat. I facebook. I watch re-runs of one of my favourite TV shows (The Vampire Diaries has been the latest target). This time however, busyness was rearing it's ugly head in quite an unsightly fashion and nothing seemed to be working, so I decided to run. Like, pack-my-bags-and-get-out-of-here kind of run. For real.
Okay, before you get a complete heart attack and think I have entirely gone mad and deserted my work - just breathe :) I decided to just take a short break and getaway, joining my husband in Germany and Austria to soak in the chilly winter air, and regain a little bit of my head back in the process :)
And it was wonderful.
It may have been wintry, with the breeze laced with frost, but the sights were magical, and it was good to be out and about, and away. Even if life back at home had just paused momentarily. It was good. Good to be with my husband, walking the streets of Munich hand in hand with our cold-tipped fingers clasped together. Good for my eyes to be refreshed with different sights to inspire. Good to breathe. And good to just be. In those moments as the first snow of Germany floated in and around my face, and I heard the musicians in their thick winter coats playing classical music under those german arches, I was happy and my heart was full.
Here are some things that peaked my eye's interest the day we spent in Munich.
Happy thursday everyone! I'll have photos from Salzburg, Austria next (the land of The Sound of Music!)
