Bed & Breakfast

One of the things I love most about my German family is being the recipient of genuine European hospitality. It's amazing to know someone's spent so much time and effort just to make you feel at home. Such was the case at a recent overnight trip to my Tante Ulla's house — everything presented with thoughtful attention to detail and a touch of loving kindness. The only thing better than indulging in all of this is creating it for someone else — a tradition well worth passing on to my own children.

Treats in my room

Oh the garden!

Almost too pretty to eat

  1. Thank you, dear Kirsten- it was a joy to have you here over night. I was surprised at the fine pictures you took and adding such caring writing~~~
    It was such fun cooking together, talking, drinking good wine. In addition to being
    aunt and niece we are also friends, that makes
    me glad. Out little family here misses your
    dear mother, and my sister, Inge, but we are still a little family; and last weekend I visited her and saw her happy - so I decided to appreciate what I still have. By the way: you are also the thoughtful, creative and kind one ! Love you lots - Tante Ulla
