I started my birthday with snapchat and Ilse in bed haha Ilse is per Albrechts request not allowed on the bed so that was a special birthday treat 😉 although I must say after this weekend we tweaked that rule a little lol
Annalena came early and helped prepare for the evening – she even cleaned our bathroom. I´m telling you those are the best kind of friends 😀
We needed to go grocerie shopping and went to an organic/demeter farm 20 minutes from us and it was BEAUTIFUL! I LOVED spending my money there 😉 Through out the day I got more and more flowers and I absolutely loved it!
Cooking and talking… We were 13 people and thanks to the bench Albrecht built we all fit around the table! When your girldfriends know you too well and buy you fastfood socks and bake you american cupcakes! SOO GOOD :)! Although I am still not so sure if its a good thing that I get associated with fastfood haha We had baked camenbert with mashed potatoes and red cabbage – all homemade! It was delicious!!
11 of us spent the night at our apartment – lets just say every corner had a matress lol but it was fun! And I would do it over in a second! We woke up to the sun and after brunch a few of us that didnt need to work went on a hike along the Ahrsteig! Its only 30 minutes outside of Bonn and first of all I didnt know it was this hilly/mountanious this close to us and secondly even though the weather wasnt perfect it still was soo pretty!
Ilse was going crazy on this walk. I will never again question her endurance – that little dog can run and walk for hours like its no one business. I hope that we can let of off her leash next time because hiking with a big group while having Ilse run back and forth and in between us with a leash was a struggle lol
After the majority left Katharina, Seb and Hanna were left and we ended Saturday night the best way possible: with Italian food <3
I LOVED having everyone over but then I also loved getting to spend Sunday in sweats with Ilse by my side doing absolutely nothing. It all balances each other out 🙂
I had the absolute best birthday weekend! I felt so loved, seen and truly loved every single present I got. It made my birthday even sweeter! Most of all though I loved that we all had the opportunity to come together as a group of friends, sit together around a table and share a meal! To feel loved, to be loved and to be surrounded by community that is honest,!fun and loving is the biggest gift of all!
Sending you lots of love!!
