2011 blog roundup

Hi guys!

So here it is, the new year. I'm a bit late, but here is my little blog roundup for 2011 including two favourite looks of each months and some words about what happened in my life. Hope you like it!

ohio is for lovers / navy blue like the sea

In January one of my resolutions was to learn how to handle my new DSLR that I bought myself for Christmas 2010. I was (and still am) a newbie concerning DSLR photography so it started then but I'm still learning now a year later.

is there a ghost / the sound of the microwave

February was a hard month to put together nice outfits because it was freezing then. I especially remember our fun but exhausting Berlin trip with Patrick's band, damn was it cold there!

let the music play / bigfoot is not yeti

Carnival was pretty late this year, it took place in the beginning of March. I dressed up as a squaw and enjoyed watching the parade with some co-workers in the city. Furthermore it was my blog's first birthday!

skipping spring / birthday bash no. 1

I remember the weather in April being so warm that it felt like the year had skipped spring and had simply moved on to summer. It was a lovely sunny day when I had my first blogger meet up ever with Mona of Summertime Dreams, who was on vacation in Germany.

going east / birthday recap

In May I turned 25, oh my, I feel so old... I had a lovely birthday celebration with Patrick, my dad and his girlfriend. In the beginning of May, before my birthday, we also visited Patrick#s relatives in Eastern Germany to celebrate his grandma's 70th birthday (hey, do I really have to feel old about my 25 years huh?).

lazy sunday brunch / everytime I look for you the sun goes down

June was a rather quiet month full of sunny weather and weekend activities with Patrick or the family.

a glamourous night / budapest day 3

July was an exciting month! A friend of mine finished her long and hard dentistry studies and invited us to her final ceremony in one of Cologne's most luxurious hotels. I was also really excited about my very first business trip ever when my company told me they'd send me to Budapest.

break down and cease all feeling / I am everything I am not

In August I was utterly happy about the mild summer we had in Germany this year, it was amazing being able to wear tights in summer (I don't like to show my bare legs that much).

wedding bells / every endless day

September: back to Budapest again for another training round with my new Hungarian colleagues. I had to teach them how to work with our company's database and spent another amazing two weeks in the Magyar capital.
Furthermore my friend Nina got married and had a wonderful wedding day here in D├╝sseldorf!

a fine autumnal day / a condition of the heart

In October autumn found its way to Germany and my favourite season concerning clothing began. I love dark greens, browns, deep reds and all other beautiful colours of fallen leaves. Furthermore we spent an amazing Halloween night at a friend's apartment.

we were born and raised in a summer haze / I like my coffee black just like my metal

November was another rather uninteresting month with not much happening apart from essays and presentations for university - oh and the start of the pre-Christmas hurly-burly!

a nightmare before christmas - literally / christmas recap 3

December was full of Christmas parties and dinner dates and I enjoyed them all a lot. On December the 14th Patrick and I had our 9th anniversary - whew it really doesn't feel that long! And two weeks ago I spent a peaceful lovely time with my family and friends over the Christmas holidays.
Also New Year's Eve was a relaxed and cozy evening at home this year - oh my, are we getting older?!

Well, let's finally say goodbye to 2011. You were an amazing year with lots of exciting new things and old wellknown routines and yes you were a good year. I think I'll stop here before I get too melancholic about how time flies again...

Let's try to make 2012 another awesome year in our lives ;)
