Blast From The Past – Beer, Beard Or How I Met My Husband

It’s this special time of the year. The time when in Europe spring makes everything blossom (of course everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere). It’s the time Amor does his magic and some people actually fall in love. It’s the time of the year, Paris is is the prettiest… well, hang on… Paris is always pretty… Oh, let’s just get to the point: It’s the time of the year hubby and I celebrate the most special anniversary ever: The day we met. The interesting fact about it is, that I felt I was at a crossroad in my life. Not sure on which direction to go… It was a very interesting experience and once again life took over.

I don’t really know how many of you have read our story so far but I thought it would be the perfect time to share it again as a Blast From The Past and I hope you enjoy it and maybe it will inspire you to share your love story with me for my feature ‘Couples‘…

Let’s build a chain of love!

Here’s my hand…

Share Your Light

The post of my wonderful blog sis, Ritu, inspired me to this post. Not much words, just a symbol we could pass on and share.

Let’s show the world that there is more light in this world than darkness, more love, tolerance, compassion, and respect than hatred and resentments.

Let’s take each other by the hand and build a chain of love, solidarity, and unity!

I closed the comment section but ask you to share instead.

In Love and Light

The City Of Love

Over the last 48 hours the city of love, Paris, was turned into the city of pain and sorrow, uncertainty, maybe fear and terror. It feels like watching a Bond movie. But it’s terribly real. In times like this it’s difficult to grasp what has happened. I’m sure that there are many posts out there about this at the moment. Honestly, I did not check my Reader just yet. I want to keep my mind free of everyone else’s thoughts. This time I don’t need any inspiration from the outside.

What happened in Paris should make us think once more. We get forced into no longer feeling free or safe in our own country, we are forced into worrying when we go out. We are forced into fighting back, maybe officially starting a war, which then feeds the ones that want to hurt us.

Time For Change

My thoughts go out to everyone in Paris today. What a sad day, what sad news to wake up to. I hope this will not trigger more hate and radical actions but rather finally a change. A change to a kinder and more peaceful world…
