Home Early!

Hello lovely friends! How is everyone today? Great, I hope!

Jon's trip schedule changed a bit and we ended up coming back a day early, which was fine, since the forecast called for clouds all day today and tomorrow. Isn't it strange, no matter how long you are away from your home, 1-20 days, it is so nice to get back. Back to your bed, your couch, your TV, etc. Home is so nice!

Yesterday after Jon got off from work we walked downtown so I could grab a quick picture of the front of the church during the day with the sun-a-shinin'! Here are the pics:



Afterward we went in search of the Mexican restaurant "Si Claro," that we had been waiting to enjoy. But guess what....... we got lost! For about an hour! AN HOUR OF WALKING! But FINALLY we found it and at this point my lust for Mexican food was kind of tossed out the window. But once we sat down and ordered that Tecate, all was right in the world again! I ordered chicken enchiladas and Jonny had a chimichanga! YUMMMMM.

It was totally worth getting lost for an hour, (but if you would have asked me during that hour if it was worth it, I might have ripped out my hair.) After dinner we called it an early night and made our way back to the hotel to watch Angels and Demons. It was our first time to see the movie and it was AWESOME!

This morning Jon had some work to do before we made our way back to Wiesbaden. Before our trained left, we dashed like lightening to the Hohenzollern Bridge and attached our own Love Lock. Luckily the bridge is right by the train station or we wouldn't have had enough time. I am so glad we got to attach our own personalized lock. It really meant a lot to me and is something I will always remember.
Our engraved lock.
Attaching it.
Cheesin' in front of our lock.
When we got our lock engraved, the man told us it's good luck to throw the keys to the lock into the Rhine River. So that's exactly what Jonny did.
What a fun time!

Okay, now back to reality: it's time to unpack, do laundry, some dishes and get to working on dinner. Oh good news..... business is picking up! I just got another new client who called me today and she comes to see me next Thursday. Oh Happy Day!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

When my little brother was studying in Germany he went to this bridge. He thought the tradition was a really good one. I'm glad you two were able to "lock your love" on the bridge.

Can I just say how jealous I am of this whole lock on the bridge thing! As soon as I read your post the other day I called my sweetie and was like WE HAVE TO GO THERE AND DO THAT.
